First came Britney Spears, closely followed by Christina Aguilera. And it's now the turn of yet another teenager to make the pop charts - Jessica Simpson, with her debut album "Sweet Kisses" looks set to enjoy quite a substantial amount of time on the music hit list, given the success of her first single "I Wanna Love You Forever".
Perhaps the operative word for "Sweet Kisses" is "sweet" - everything about this album is overpoweringly sweet, from the titles of the tracks ["My Wonderful", "Heart Of Innocence"] to the lyrics themselves. Jessica Simpson herself is only nineteen, and so you obviously shouldn't expect anything path-breaking; by and large, the songs are enjoyable, peppy and definitely listenable. Gospel, pop and dance tracks are included, and there's also a duet with a 98 Degrees frontman.This article was first published on 22 Mar 2000.
