Nicole Scherzinger, of Pussycat Dolls fame, has yet to create significant buzz with her singles leading up to the release of sophomore album "Big Fat Lie." But with the premiere of her brand new music video for "Run," she may finally be on the right track. The beautifully subtle music video for the emotional track encapsulates the song's message in a simple yet visually appealing way. Will the public latch on? Does Nicole have the ability to get back to the top of the charts?

"Run" premiered just hours ago on Vevo, and is already garnering plenty of attention. "So powerful and intense! Nicole Scherzinger lets all the right feelings come to showing in the music video for "Run" - Nicole's best solo song to date. The heart-breaking ballad hears the former Pussycat Dolls leader singing about a terrifying episode of her life where she was neglected as a woman," explains one critic. As she lies on the cold floors of an vacant mansion, the 36-year-old American singer croons to the camera in her somberness.

As Nicole relives the emotional rollercoaster that she sings about, she portrays her vulnerable and heartbroken state to the camera. Produced by Felix Snow, the single showcases Nicole's strong vocal range and range as an artist. Similar to Rihanna's "Stay" in some ways (but with the opposite message), the raw stripped-back song successes most in its focus on Scherzinger's bold voice without the need for a vibrant production.

 "The song is called 'Run' basically encouraging people to run from whatever fears are holding them back,"Scherzingerexplained to E! News. "We all have our own stuff-people, relationships, ourselves, the stuff inside of our mind-that hold us back and make us feel small, make us feel less than, that we can't do it, that we're less then. It's running from that and running to something bigger and more positive."

Do you think Nicole's message was accurately portrayed in the emotional yet understated music video? Will the visual help the single's chances of performing well in the charts?

Looks like you'll have another chance to see the song play out visually very soon! "Nicole will perform the single for the first time on The X Factor [UK] on 16th November," confirms Glamour Magazine.
