I was excited to read that Fefe Dobson’s new single (“I Want You”) has been chosen as the theme for a VH1 Reality Show. I’ve loved this girl since her first album came out…or a couple of months after it came out anyway. I don’t quite remember which song first got me hooked on Fefe Dobson – perhaps it was her third single, “Everything,” or perhaps it was her debut U.S. single “Take Me Away.” By the time her fourth single came out – I was sold. Granted, “Don’t Go (Girls and Boys)” was completely different than her other singles in that it was more top-40 friendly. Up-tempo and poppy. I loved her other songs as well, but they weren’t as much fun.
After her self titled album came out in 2003/2004, Fefe seemingly dropped off the map. She resurfaced during the writing/recording of her follow up album, Sunday Love, blogging on MySpace…however after a couple of release date shifts, the album was ultimately shelved. So annoying. I personally was hoping for something more along the lines of “Don’t Go,” but of course the two new singles were not up-tempo pop jams. I liked “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head,” and “This Is My Life” but I think they were poor single choices. Since I have yet to listen to the album, I don’t know if there were any other single-worthy tracks on there…I guess I’ll never know.
With a new album, Joy, set to come out in September, Dobson is back on MySpace and now Twitter. Dobson’s newish “Watch Me Move” was featured in promos for NBC’s now cancelled show Lipstick Jungle, and according to her blog – her newest song “I Want You” has been selected as the theme for a new VH1 show called “Megan Wants A Millionaire“, which premieres on August 2nd. This is all very positive. I’m wishing her the best. Hopefully this new album makes it onto store shelves! I’m eagerly anticipating a new full length LP from this sassy/classy girl. Oh…and listen for a Jordin Sparks cover of “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head” on Jordin’s forth coming album on July 21st. It’s not half bad!
