If ever there was an act- besides Janet– that the likes of Ciara could benefit from pulling from…it’s Paula Abdul.
The Bob Fosse inspired dancer who first rocked the charts upon signing to Virgin Records in 1987, her run atop her scene-albeit short- saw her serve as the blueprint for imagery spawned by Britney Spears and her contemporary/alleged student Janet Jackson.
Today, in celebrating her work, we step back in time and land in June 15th 1989- the day her third single from her ‘Forever Your Girl‘ was released to the world.
Produced by EMI‘s Elliot Wolff and marking one of the highest selling ‘New Jack Swing’ cuts to come from a female artist, the single saw its video placed in the hands of director David Fincher and pull from Fosse‘s 1979 classic ‘All That Jazz‘.
