Hilary Duff attempted a comeback last year, but it didn’t go far. Songs like “Chasing the Sun” and “All About You” just weren’t the monumental hits the singer needed to get fans excited for a comeback album. Duff wasn’t alone in this, however. Gwen Stefani and Fergie’s comeback efforts both had similar fates.
Duff isn’t done trying, though. With the help of pop songwriter Tove Lo, the singer has made a solid attempt at radio gold. Her latest release, “Sparks,” features a whistle refrain similar to Flo Rida’s “Whistle” and a melody that would’ve fit right in on Lo’s Queen of the Clouds debut album. It has all of the markings for a pop hit, but that may be the problem. It feels a little too manufactured at times.
That won’t stop it from getting stuck in your head, though.
