OK, maybe Paula Abdul's greatest attribute has never been vocal valor—but anyone who luxuriated in MTV's golden era can't help but fondly sigh over late-'80's/ early-'90s No. 1 hits "Straight Up," "Forever Your Girl," "Cold Hearted," even "Opposites Attract" featuring the animated MC Skat Kat.
Abdul's last hit was more than a decade ago, but the 45-year-old "American Idol" judge fires a bull's-eye with uptempo "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow," the first single from producer and fellow "AI" judge Randy Jackson's upcoming album "Music Club: Volume 1."
The giddy, beat-intensive track is an ace-on match for Abdul's breathy execution, with rapid-fire verses and a peppy, positive lyric: "I'm so ready to move my body, forget about all my problems/When I hear that song, I'm gonna lose control."
With her beloved, sunny disposition, not to mention a Super Bowl performance this month and plenty of props from American's No. 1 TV series, signs point to potential for a fervent comeback. According to Abdul's Web site, a solo album is also in the making, due this summer. A real feel-good return.
