I Hate This Part is a tear-jerking, very emotional ballad that just reminds us of how great Nicole’s voice is. It opens with a piano sample then is later incorporated with an infectious stargate-ish sound. It’s definitely R&B and has a good lyrical composition. The track is packed with intense emotion as delivered by lead singer Nicole or does she has somebody with her singing? It looks like the song was just cut-off from Nicole’s unreleased LP. Like usual ballads, there’s always the biggest part of the song. It was a little bit painful to the ears because it’s like Nicole is screaming at the top of her lungs.The girls should have been given the chance to sing into the verses or the choruses especially Melody which has a great voice. We’re slowly getting tired of hearing Nicole almost all of their songs. Maybe it’s time for a change isn’t it? The end of the song was just brilliant as Nicole tearfully sings “I Hate This Part right here, I just can’t take these tears…” Overall, the song isn’t bad at all. It just lacks the exposure of the other dolls as they were like never head throughout the song. A bit disappointing, I might say.
