Nicole Scherzinger - 'Killer Love' (November)

After years of setbacks, including an entire shelved album, the Pussycat Doll – who is invading living rooms this fall as a judge on The X Factor – has finally finished her solo debut, with help from hitmakers including RedOne. The disc ranges from the surprisingly stark piano ballad "Amen­Jena" (Scherzinger belts, "I want to try and say things I've never had the courage to say") to the Caribbean-girl sass of lead single "Right There." "At this point," says Scherzinger, "I've gone through so much that I want to show different personalities in every song." And the secret to balancing music with her new TV gig? "I've learned how to sleep sitting up."
