Hilary Duff is officially back! First with ‘Chasing The Sun’ and now with her new single ‘All About You’!
I’ve always been a huge Hilary Duff fan. I loved Lizzie McGuire, and I wanted to hate her when I found out the show was ending but I just couldn’t. She was like, the epitome of “America’s Sweetheart”. I even loved her arc in Gossip Girl where she was dating Dan and then wanted them to have a threesome with Jessica. It was weird but I still loved it, because I loved her.
So when I heard she was going to be releasing new music (finally!), I was stoked. And then, I was disappointed. Her first single, Chasing The Sun, (which you can hear in a bit) just didn’t do it for me. It was a quintessential summer song, sure. But it kind of reminded me of that hideous attempt at music from Paris Hilton. Something about stars shining? I don’t know. The best part about Chasing The Sun was the music video, because it gave us quirky
Lizzie Hilary again, and it was relatable, especially as a 20-something hating the idea of losing my summer to have to work.
Take a look at the video for Chasing The Sun below:
I was very meh about it all. I figured that maybe some things should never make a comeback. Some things should just stay shimmery and special in our nostalgia and never be touched again. But then magic happened. Hilary released a second single, All About You, and it was catchy and fun and I like it. I really liked it, and then I listened a second time and thought that I maybe even loved it.
