Hello everyone! Today we are here to CELEBRATE the 20th ANNIVERSARY of one of the most underrated pop songs of all time, IRRESISTIBLE by none other than MS. Jessica Simpson herself. 20 years ago TODAY, the QUEEN released the title track, POP anthem and 2000s staple 'Irresistible' and the game forever changed. During this era, Simpson decided to take a departure from her next-door-girl image and release more sultry, adult-driven music. In preparation of releasing her second studio album with the same name and nearing the cusp of turing 21, Simpson described the material as "Mariah Carey meets Britney Spears", indicating the soulfulness of the songs as well as their contemporary appeal. Lyrical themes addressed in the album include love and heartbreak, ***uality, and self-respect where she also dived into more hip-hop and R&B influences. 'Irresistible' received RAVE reviews and reached the Top 20 in over TWELVE countries becoming a worldwide HIT. The accompanying music video has a James Bond theme and features scenes of Simpson dressed as a spy. A music video for the So-So Def Remix was also filmed, featuring appearances by Jermaine Dupri and Lil' Bow Wow. The song was also featured on the Disney Channel Original Series Lizzie McGuire in 2001 and would go on to win a Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) Pop Music Award, in addition to being ranked as one of the Top 100 Pop Songs of 2001. Simpson would also headline her first tour by the name of DreamChaser Tour where she performed the song as a part of the set-list, becoming one of pop's IT-girls and solidifying her status as a TRIPLE-THREAT. In 2002, Simpson released the DVD titled Dream Chaser which included exclusives, interviews, live performances, behind-the-scenes footage and more. The DVD included a short snippet of a behind-the-scenes look at the Making of the Video for the futuristic 'Irresistible.' And finally, here are some of my personal favorite performances of the song, hope you all enjoy.
