The Pussycat Dolls release music video for 'React', their first song in over a decade and fans are loving it
'React' features the group reunited, except for singer Melody Thornton
Move over nostalgia for the 90s. It's 2020, which means it's time to bring on the nostalgia for the 2000s, and that includes a comeback single from The Pussycat Dolls, one of the biggest groups of the era known for songs such as 'Don't Cha', 'Buttons', and 'When I Grow Up'.
The music video for 'React' was released this week and features the group reunited, except for the singer Melody Thornton who opted to focus on her solo career. 'React' was co-written by Nicole Scherzinger, the erstwhile face of The Pussycat Dolls.
The song was first performed on 'The X-Factor' late last year, with the video releasing this February. Reminiscent of the choreography-heavy videos from the group in the 2000s, 'React' made it almost as if the 2010s never happened.
The reaction to 'React' has been positive with fans gushing over the return of the group. Leading the exaltation is singer Meghan Trainor, who tweeted, "WHO GAVE YALL PERMISSION TO BE THIS HOT [...] IM SCREAMING #REACT."
A user tweeted, "You are a guarantee. I had no doubt that your new single would have had all this success. I missed you. You must never disappear again. The world needs you. Little but sure." Another wrote, "Can we just talk about how The Pussycat Dolls just released one of the best pop songs I’ve heard in a hot minute #react." A fan said, "The Pussycat Dolls back with #react and the world seems a little bit better today."
However, some fans pointed out that Scherzinger still led the vocals while the focus on the other members of the group was less. A fan wrote, "Just heard #React by The Pussycat Dolls, it's just pretty much Nicole singing. So nothing's changed. No wonder Melody didn't want to come back. Good song, though." Another tweeted, "Yes, Pussycat Dolls new single is incredible but why couldn’t @NicoleScherzy release it as a solo track? The other ladies are more of just... backup dancers for the vid? #react."
