Here is some of Nicola Roberts' new single 'Lucky Day'. We don't need to tell you that it's amazing. (but we will anyway)

This is Nicola filming the video for 'Lucky Day.'  In New York.  WHERE WE LIVE.
It is no secret that Nicola Roberts is amazing.  That is, it is no secret to us and two of our friends that Nicola Roberts is amazing, while it remains a complete secret to the rest of our friends, some people we don't like, and the record buying public at large.

Her debut single was a love-it-or-hate-it phenomfest of the highest order, that limped to #27 thanks to an ill-advised on air/on sale release.  We wrote all about that debacle here but the long and short of it is that IT WAS A STUPID IDEA AND SOMEONE MUST PAY.  

Chart floppage aside, Nicola IS amazing, ladies and gentlemen, to the point where if the next song she chucks out isn't number 1 for seventeen weeks we will do something drastic and unpredictable like move into Xenomania's basement or become vegetarians. with that what you will.

Also, while we're on the subject, you know who else is amazing?  Dragonette.  Yes, the ones that did that song 'Hello' with that guy whose name you can't pronounce.  But also the ones who did the phenomenal debut album that no one heard, and the even better sophomore album that a few more people, but still not enough to not qualify as "no one," heard.  So when we discovered that Nicola's second single will be 'Lucky Day,' her collaboration with the band, we squealed we with delight, did a bit of the dance from the 'Beat Of My Drum' video and then exploded into a cloud of pixie dust.


Anyway, here's a video of some parts of the song.
