Retro girl: Nicola Roberts dances to The Beat Of My Drum solo single in tiny pants in her video
Just two days before her debut solo single is released for download, Nicola Roberts has aired a preview to her music video Beat Of My Drum.
And the fiery-haired singer puts on a fierce performance in a bizarre pair of 1970s-inspired pants.
The yellow, brown and black ensemble consists of a long-sleeved zebra-print top alongside the high-cut briefs and strappy heels.
Nicola sings ‘L.O.V.E, dance to the beat of my drum,’ in the video, which will be broadcast on Sunday.
And her adventurous dance moves certainly give her Girls Aloud pal Cheryl Cole a run for her money.
Nicola is joined by three back up dances as she boogies down in front of a stack of huge speakers.
The 25-year-old has been busy promoting her upcoming album and the single was aired for the first time yesterday on Radio 1.

The singer went down to the Radio 1 studio as her single was played on the station and T4 will premiere her new video at 12:30pm this Sunday.
Beat Of MY Drum was given its first air play on the Scott Mills show and Nicola has been very excited about her upcoming video.
She tweeted this week: ‘I’m SO proud of Team Ginge! Just had my final video cut through.
‘I’m so excited for you to see it. I LOVE it and cant believe it! X’
Two years after Girls Aloud went on hiatus, Roberts is one of the last band members to release a solo single.
Cheryl Cole has already released two No1 albums, while Nadine Coyle’s solo disc insatiable unfortunately failed to make the same impact.

Kimberley Walsh – who has also been focusing on her career on TV presenting – released a duet with rapper Aggro Santos last year.
Meanwhile, Roberts is DJing at east London pop night Love Machine tomorrow night and has also dropped a hint that Girls Aloud will reform next year.
She told Heatworld.com: ‘If we don’t celebrate out 10th anniversary next year I will be sad for the rest of my life.’
Love Machine is hosting the launch party for her new single at the Hoxton Bar and Kitchen on Saturday night and joked that her DJ name could be DJ Ginger.
