The Pussycat Dolls were MIA for a cool minute (aka, a decade), but the pop group is back, and hotter than ever. They just dropped a new single, and trust me when I say: "The accompanying visual seriously heats things up." The Pussycat Dolls' "React" music video will leave your jaw on the floor.
On Feb. 7, The Pussycat Dolls gave their longtime fans an official single and video for "React" after they teased it during their in November 2019 during the X Factor UK season finale where the five-part group (sans Melody Thornton) performed a preview of "React."
The official visual is here and it's made in typical PCD fashion, featuring incredible outfits, mesmerizing dance sequences, and a lot of hair flips.
One scene showcases the group dancing in a metal cage-like structure in sexy, black outfits while surrounded by fire. In another scene, they are wearing nude latex ensembles in the metal cage while surrounded by water. The band definitely wants fans to know they still got it on all fronts, as there's another scene where they hit the splits while upside down.
The song, which is basically all about doing the absolute most to get their baes to react, is seriously catchy — and totally relatable. Some of the lyrics include:
Every time I leave, you pull me closer / I hang up the phone, you call me back / Why don’t you mess me ’round like you’re supposed to? / You’re turning me cruel ’cause I’m just wanting you to react.
In a Feb. 7 interview with Entertainment Weekly, lead singer Nicole Scherzinger explained why 2020 was the perfect time to reassemble the band.
“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," she said.
The Pussycat Dolls will head on a reunion world tour titled Unfinished Business in April 2020. They'll make stops in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the U.S. But if you can't splurge on tickets, there's always this hot video to jam out to.
