What's the story?
"BOSSY," the seductive – yet not too seductive for tweens – and compelling dance track song from Lindsay Lohan generated lots of buzz from fans and some critical acclaim, reaching #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart. It's a fun, synth-heavy tune produced by R&B hitmaker Ne-Yo (Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion) and has a message about being strong enough to get what you want.
Is it any good?
Actress and musical artist Lindsay Lohan is paving the way for a crucial mass-media re-entry over the next several months. LiLo has definitely had her troubles as of late, but you can't help but root for the doe-eyed, freckle-faced talent who came into the hot spotlight with her breakout role in The Parent Trap in 1999. Lindsay has made some bad choices, but there's no denying her pop talent.
"Bossy," the lead single from her upcoming album to be released later this year, may just be her ticket back into the spotlight...for something positive. It's fun and keeps a contagious beat with singable lyrics to get you shakin' on the dance floor.
