A decade ago, on March 21 2007, @hilaryduff
released her fourth album "Dignity" which became a game changer for her as a singer. Previously known as the Disney darling in her pop rock and bubblegum pop albums, Hilary successfully transformed into a mature dance floor young diva.
Dignity has sold more than 1 Million copies worldwide, with helps from three singles and a tour. Hilary wrote all of songs lyrics, except for Outside of You, on this album. This is why Dignity is her most personal album. Being her first dance record, Dignity was a modest successful dance album to debut at no. 3 in US Billboard 200 and two of the three singles topped the US Dance Chart.
Play With Fire was chosen as the first single, released in August 2006, and peaked at no. 31 on US Dance Club Songs. With Love, which was also used as a commercial for her perfume line, served as the 2nd single. The song peaked at no. 24 on US Billboard Hot 100 and no. 1 on US Dance Club Songs. Stranger was the 3rd single, peaked at no. 97 on US Billboard Hot 100 and no. 1 on US Billboard Dance Club Songs.
Gypsy Woman was planned to be released as the fourth single, and Reach Out and Holiday was also planned to be released as the first and second single from Dignity repackage version, but the plans were scrapped.
To date, Dignity is still my all time favorite album from Hilary Duff, because I can feel her emotions in this album. Also, Dignity is her album with best lyrics and sickest beats. I can't believe it has been ten years. I could still picture myself listening to Dignity for the first time in Yogyakarta.
