Since Her Name Is Nicole got pushed back from November to January, PCD alum Nicole Scherzinger needed a fresh single to gain steam for the album’s new release date. The brand new and unusually-sounding, Puakenikeni, should turn a few heads, but in case you’re wondering, it’s Nicole’s favorite Hawaiian flower. As if the title wasn’t exotic enough, Nicole adds vocals from Jamaican duo, Brick & Lace, and a dance hall-worthy beat from their boss, Akon. (I wonder if she got an in house label discount?) Once this flower (I’m only spelling it once) starts to blossom, expect it to be a definitive chart-topper in early 2008. Her Name Is Nicole will be available in stores and online January 29th.
