I often think Nicole Scherzinger does not get the credit she deserves for her vocals. She could turn it out live too and trust me I know, because I have watched every live performance of ‘I Hate This Part’ that I can find on YouTube.
The song speaks of a couple who have reached an inescapable moment of having to call time on their failing relationship and the heavy heart that brings.
“I hate this part, but I gotta do it” Nicole belts out towards the end of the song. If you’ve ever been in that situation, you know exactly what she’s talking about.
