Overview

Actress/singer/model Ashley Tisdale, as anyone under 15 knows, is Sharpay from High School Musical, and prior to the release of Headstrong, she'd already scored three singles that charted in Billboard's Top 100 -- which makes her first LP a debut in name only. While a bit edgier musically than Musical's fare, this album offers a PG-rated take on teen pop, loaded with driving beats, hip-hop-inflected vocals, the occasional ballad, and moments that recall songs by Rihanna, Aaliyah, and other mono-monickered R&B vixens. The lyrical subject matter, however, doesn't step over the "kissin' and touchin' " variety -- at least not on this album (Tisdale's producers have tackled this issue in a complicated fashion, as there are reportedly three different versions of the album's first single, "He Said, She Said" -- with differing sets of lyrics -- making the rounds). This album, however, is aimed straight for the parent-approved zone, a lite take on Britney-fied hip-pop that big on sing-along, call-and-response vocals (there are lots of "Hey!"s and "Uh-huh!"s) and lyrics that generally don't stray beyond fun, friends, parties, and boys. It's tailor-made for the High School Musical crowd, and should help Tisdale's star to rise even higher.
