AmenJena

Album: Killer Love (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This stripped down ballad from former Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger's debut solo album, Killer Love, is just her voice accompanied by a piano. She told Billboard magazine: "A lot of the music comes from heartbreak, something a lot of people can relate to. Everything on the album has to do with relationships and with love. They have to have meaning to me. 'AmenJena' is the most personal, most vulnerable, most intimate song I have ever written. I want to share a whole other side of me. It's a lot deeper than Pussycat Dolls."
