Blame it on Spice Girls fatigue but I've only recently become aware of Girls Aloud's existence. For the past two weeks, the micro-blogs I follow (thanks Tumblr!) have been buzzing about Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts new song. Produced by Diplo, Beat of My Drum is Robert's first single off her debut solo album. It's a super fun dance track that begs to be added to your morning commute playlist.
The single is only available for purchase to UK residents but a fan managed to upload the accompanying music video to Vimeo.
Warning: Nicola's dancing is reminiscent of Britney 2.0 (stiff upper body movements, awkward lip-synching, hairography). But once the porcelain beauty begins to wail "ohhhhhh, don't it make your heart go willlllldd," you'll be too caught up in her saccharine melodies to notice.
Happy Monday, everyone.
