The Bottom Line
"Stickwitu" goes a long way toward establishing the Pussycat Dolls as more than a one-hit wonder. While it is not the most distinctive pop song around, it is a sweet, solid love song for when times are good. This one will work well at homecoming dances and wedding receptions.

Guide Review - Stickwitu - Pussycat Dolls (Interscope)
Through the success of the Pussycat Dolls the pop music world is waking up to the fact that lead Doll Nicole Kea (formerly Scherzinger) is a solid pop singer. She led the girl band Eden's Crush to a top 10 pop hit, and now she has delivered lead vocals for two straight Pussycat Dolls hits. She is the Dolls' MVP.
"Stickwitu" lacks the instant hook power of "Don't cha wish your girlfriend was HOT like me..." in "Don't Cha," but it doesn't take long to warm up to this celebration of relationship longevity. If you're lucky enough to have a long-term partner, punch this tune up, and enjoy the slow dance.
In the accompanying day-in-the-life video for "Stickwitu," the Dolls continue to project a straightforward, non-demeaning sexuality that is...well, sexy. These women may be around longer than many in the music industry have expected.
