Nicole Scherzinger is ”making magic” in the studio with Tricky Stewart.
The 35-year-old star is working on the follow-up to her 2011 album ‘Killer Love’ and has teamed up with the 40-year-old American music producer who is responsible for Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’, Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ and BeyoncÃ©’s ‘Single Ladies’, among other hits.
Nicole wrote on Twitter: ”Studio making #magic w/@trickystewart mr_joshstewart @jacksonxjoshua (sic)”
She also attached a black and white image of herself looking cosy in a fluffy jumper, clutching a pen, while she looked down at some sheets of paper.
Nicole – who was catapulted to the spotlight in girl group Pussycat Dolls – is set to release her new solo album with Sony this year and is likely to rake in more cash from a string of commercial jobs following her successful stint as a judge on the UK’s ‘X Factor’.
A source previously said: ”Nicole was the most popular member of the ‘X Factor’ panel this year and is the real winner in terms of bankability.
”She is set to sign with Sony and can’t wait to get back to her music, which took a back seat during X Factor.”
