Billboard's review of A Public Affair
A Public Affair
Producer(s): Lester Mendez
Jessica Simpson opens a new chapter in her life ready to set the charts ablaze. Her first release post-100 mph ascent to the A-list is an ecstatic pure-pop frolic reminiscent of Madonna's "Lucky Star." Giddy, wildly adventurous production from Lester Mendez is an absolute delight—maddeningly catchy and brimming with melodic twists and turns—giving "A Public Affair" the potential to actually signal a tidal shift back to the center for top 40—it's that good. Neglected pop fans will lather over this unapologetically fluffy summer song while habitual Simpson detractors will see her in a new light. A public affair, indeed. This record is perfect. A+
That review is really positive, which is shocking seeing as how Chuck Taylor reviewed it AKA the biggest asshole at Billboard.
