(Video) Nicola Roberts - Beat Of My Drum
Allow me to introduce the world's new favourite popstar. Because that, surely, is what Nicola Roberts deserves to become.
With her delicate, model-like beauty and such an effortlessly charming personality, she gets the adorable-factor spot on, and never is it more evident in the video for her debut solo single Beat Of My Drum.
Throwing some moves down in a hall, accompanied by a troupe of dancers and drummers galore, she even finds time to come up with one of the best pop dance routines I've seen in a long time. 'L.O.V.E.' she raps out, spelling the letters out with her arms. I'm in love.
It's plain to see here that this is the moment Nicola has been building to all her life; and for a young singer making her first forays into the solo world after nearly a decade in a band, she carries it incredibly well. The video is fierce, fun and full of that distinct pop essence that we all felt only Nicola would be capable of creating.
