Sam Smith inspired me: Nicole Scherzinger

London: Singer Nicole Scherzinger is moved by the heartbreaking lyrics and emotive voice of Sam Smith latest single `In the Lonely Hour`.

The 36-year-old singer said listening to the `Stay With Me` hitmaker songs on repeat stimulated her to get emotionally raw on her upcoming album, reportedly.

"He did a spectacular job of cutting straight to the heartstrings. I had many dates with the album on and a glass of wine. There`s this unbelievable cry but strength at the same time. That`s what I`m aiming for," Scherzinger said.

The `Your Love` singer`s new album will feature plenty of songs about love and heartbreak.

Scherzinger said her songs about heartbreak are not a reflection of her relationship with Lewis Hamilton.

"I`m an artist, he doesn`t come into it. I`m sure if he heard some of the music he would be able to relate to it as anybody would," she added.
