Abdul with her first album, Forever Your Girl, in 1988. The album’s sound, and Abdul’s musical identity as it is remembered now, started coming together more clearly after she and Corfield started working with Leiber and Elliot Wolff (the writer and coproducer of Straight Up ). Corfield allowed them to produce their own songs, bringing their unique sensibilities, and a willingness to collaborate with Abdul, to the project. Forever Your Girl’ was my take on the sweetness that Paula had and my imagining how she might handle it if she had an insecure boyfriend, he says. The song later doubled as a declaration of her new status as America’s sweetheart, and it would ultimately become one of her signature hits. Forever Your Girl went on to sell 7 million copies just in the US, and that massive success changed the dynamic around Abdul, as she suddenly became both a major corporate priority and a public target.
grapher Paula Abdul hit the big time with the third single, "Straight Up," off this album, which sparked a string of hits that carried through to her follow-up.
Paula Abdul poses for a portrait session during the filming of the video for "Forever Your Girl" in 1988. Before she became best known as an American Idol judge, Paula Adbul was challenging Madonna and Janet Jackson for dance-pop diva supremacy thanks to her blockbuster debut, Forever Your Girl, which came out 30 years ago on June 13, 1988. After taking 64 weeks to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 - the longest climb to the top ever - it went on to be certified seven-times platinum and notch four No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100.
The discography of American singer and dancer Paula Abdul consists of three studio albums, two remix albums, five compilations, nineteen singles, eight B-sides, four video albums and ten other appearances. Having found success as a choreographer for artists such as Janet Jackson, Abdul launched her own music career with the release of her debut studio album Forever Your Girl (1988).
