Straight Up

Six months after the release of her first single, a disc jockey in Atlanta, Georgia put "Straight Up" on the radio which almost overnight which started people's interest in the "Forever Your Girl" album.

Virgin Records released "Straight Up" the song which was to be the third and final single from the album.

"Straight Up" immediately started soaring up the Billboard Hot 40 Charts!

When Paula first heard "Straight Up" was the #1 song in the country she was in bed sick with a 103 temperature, worn out from her hectic schedule working on the album and various choreography commitments.

"Straight Up" hit the Billboard Hot 20 before a music video had even been created to promote the song.

Virgin hurried Paula to put together a cheap music video to satisfy the public's demands. The video was directed by David Fincher.

The "Straight Up" music video features a special appearance by Paula's friend, talk-show host and comedian Arsenio Hall. Also making a cameo (before he was famous) is Djimon Hounsou from the movie "Amistad."

"Straight Up" was written and produced by Elliot Wolf and was co-produced by Keith "K.C." Cohen. The "Straight Up" single released in 1989.
