Since the band split, Nicole Scherzinger has stated that she did not enjoy her time in the band, but that it toughened her up and enabled her to be successful in the Pussycat Dolls.

After Eden's Crush disbanded, Nicole Scherzinger released a few solo records, using the stage name Nicole Kea. One of her tracks, 'Breakfast in Bed' was used on the soundtrack to 50 First Dates, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.

A follow-up single, 'Beep', featured will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas but did not perform as well as its predecessors.

'Buttons' featured Snoop Dogg and reached number three on the UK singles chart. The sixth single from the album was 'Wait a Minute', which featured Timbaland.

After being selected to open for Black Eyed Peas on tour, Pussycat Dolls were also chosen to support Christina Aguilera, with Rihanna as the opening act in the UK.

Nicole Scherzinger's vocal talent was singled out by many and she went on to record a number of duets with artists such as Will Smith, Shaggy and Diddy.

To expound on her own popularity, Nicole Scherzinger released a debut album, entitled Her Name Is Nicole. She worked with songwriters such as Sean Garrett and Polow da Don and 'Whatever U Like' also featured the rapper T.I. The album also saw Scherzinger work with Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol, Pharrell Williams, The Neptunes, Sting and Ne-Yo.

The second album from Pussycat Dolls was Doll Domination, in 2008. Following their World Domination Tour, Scherzinger told the press that she planned to work with Lady Gaga and A.R. Rahman. One single from the album, 'Watcha Think About That', featured Missy Elliott.

Their single 'Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)' was featured on the soundtrack to Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.
