The Pussycat Dolls return after 10 years of absence with ‘React’
The girl group first teased their long-awaited comeback single during a performance on United Kingdom’s “The X Factor” in November 2019.
After much teasing on social media, “React” arrived alongside an accompanying music video filmed in Los Angeles by directing duo Bradley & Pablo.
The steamy visual finds Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt and Carmit Bachar performing one of their signature choreographies in various settings.
One scene shows the quintet dancing under the rain in sultry nude-colored latex leotards, with Scherzinger singing “You’re turning me cruel ’cause I’m just wanting you to react/ Looking for a little confrontation/ Now I know the nice guys turn me bad.”
“React” is the Pussycat Dolls’ first new music since the release of their sophomore studio album, “Doll Domination,” in 2008.
Despite their worldwide success, the group disbanded in early 2010 after the completion of their 2009 world tour to pursue solo projects.
The “When I Grow Up” vocalists announced their reunion in 2019, without original member Melody Thornton.

“In the past few years, all of us girls have been talking and really trying to figure out when was a good time in everyone’s lives and it just all worked out that this was the right time individually for us to come together. It’s great because it’s around our 10-year reunion,” Scherzinger recently told Entertainment Weekly.
The frontwoman also briefly alluded to the band’s forthcoming third studio album, which will apparently not arrive anytime soon.
“We’re just kind of taking one thing at a time. We knew that we were excited for the comeback and to get the single together and the video and now we’re focusing on the tour. So with the music, we’re just seeing where that takes us,” she explained, adding that they have “just been playing around with a lot of songs that we feel are very strong and anthemic and very dance-driven.”
In addition to releasing their comeback single, the Pussycat Dolls are gearing toward their 2020 reunion tour.
