9 Jessica Simpson Songs To Prepare You For Her Impending Musical Comeback — LISTEN
All of our early '00s nostalgia dreams are coming true, people: Jessica Simpson is working on new music. The now 35-year-old singer revealed her plans to USA Today on Wednesday evening at the 10-year anniversary party for her fashion line in New York City. (Side note: Jessica Simpson once had trouble distinguishing between tuna fish and chicken, and yet, she still managed to launch her own successful fashion empire. Remember, kids: "There can be miracles when you believe," never give up on your dreams, all things are possible, etc.) So, what can we expect to hear from J. Simp's upcoming project? Well, she's still figuring out the details. "I want it to be authentic to where I'm at in my life right now," she said. "It might not be on the radio, I don't care, but it will definitely be on my website." That's all that matters! What excellent news.
Simpson had a handful of hits between 1999 and 2006, but she was never really a "top-tier" pop star. No, she couldn't quite compete with the Britney Spearses and Christina Aguileras of the world, but she definitely put out some catchy tunes back in the day. Even when her songs miss the mark, they tend to be so bad... they're actually kinda good? That takes talent. Here are nine essential Jessica Simpson jams to get you hyped for her impending musical comeback:
"A Public Affair"
I'm about to bare my soul: I legitimately love this song.
"I Think I'm In Love With You"
"Jack & Diane" WISHES it were this good!
The lyrics to "With You" will be incorporated into my wedding vows someday. "With nothin' but a t-shirt on, I've never felt more beautiful, baby, than I do now... now that I'm... with you." Pure poetry.
"I Wanna Love You Forever"
This will be our first dance.
And this will be our honeymoon anthem.
"Take My Breath Away"
Sometimes when Simpson belts out a really high note, it sounds a BIT like a sustained Wookiee noise. Check out the Chewbacca battle cry at the 2:45 mark, for instance. You know that had to hurt!
Have you ever noticed how much her mouth moves when she sings?
I can't look away.
"Irresistible" is another one of my favs.
"These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"
I'll just leave this here.
Stay tuned for more info on Simpson's triumphant return to the music world.
