“I’ve heard it all before, and I don’t care much for rumors…”
Nadine Coyle – Queen Nuhdeen, if yuhr nahyhstayh – is back with yet another song. And this time, she’s slowing things down.
“Gossip” is now the third Xenomania-crafted track to be released in Nadine’s new solo era, following her fierce, unemployment rate-dropping 9-5 anthem “Go To Work” and glitchy girl-slash-gay empowerment belter, “Girls On Fire.”
As opposed to stepping up the BPM once again, Nadine’s opted to get slightly more serious and show off a different, more chilled-out side with the second offering from her upcoming 4-track EP in the form of a soulful, synth-y midtempo moment.
“Gossip” is a welcome change of sonic pace for the Derry diva. After all, some of the Almighty Aloud‘s greatest moments came in the form of their slower, shimmering offerings – “Call The Shots” and “Life Got Cold,” for example. (A Xenomania midtempo is generally always worth one’s time. “Ace Reject,” anyone?)
Lyrically, this could only be interpreted as a direct response to The Sun‘s false reports about the state of Chezza and Liam Payne‘s union. Thankfully, we’ve got Nadine by our side to shut down the shit-talkers.
“Gossip” was released on February 23. (iTunes)
