Hollywood Records knew they did wrong last year when they decided to release a “best-of” including Hilary Duff’s biggest hits without her approval; sales were low because of the absent promotion. But now, they seem to beg for pardon.
They will be releasing another “Best Of Hilary Duff” including a different tracklist (that is rumored to include songs like ‘Weird’, ‘Hide Away’, ‘Happy’, ‘Burned’, ‘Who’s That Girl?’, ‘The Getaway’, ‘Gypsy Woman’) and the first single off of the album will be “Holiday”, a song Hilary recorded before Hollywood Records decided to go for a best-of in order to finish her six-album contract with them and that the fans really liked.
A video for “Holiday” will be shot in “Hawaii or on some very beautiful island” according to a Hollywood rep who also said that “even if Hilary’s contract is over with [us], we want to re-release the compilation as a ‘thank you/sorry Hilary Duff!’ because since you’re gone, sales have been disastrous and we really want you back!”.
The Depeche Mode-sampling hot 2008 single “Reach Out” (featuring world-renown rapper The Prophet) will be sent to radios again alongside “Holiday” which also will be played on radio (the first Hilary Duff song to make it on radio since February 2007′s mega-successful “With Love”).
Hilary Duff said she “had nothing to say except for the fact that she will be filming ‘Holiday’ for the fans because they’ve been more than supportive no matter when and why”.
Who knows if this story is true or not, but if it is I hope Hilary does it and I hope Reach Out and Holiday make it to radio stations all over.
