Lindsay Lohan's new song 'Back to Me' could herald new beginning for music career 18 years in the making
Lindsay Lohan teased the world with a snippet of her new song, “Back to Me”, on social media. She announced that the full song would be out on Friday, April 3.
“The song is about rediscovering and accepting oneself, shutting out the noise and moving forward and letting the past go. Living in the now,” she captioned the Instagram video.
The former Disney child actress started her brief music career in 2002 when she signed a five-album deal with Emilio Estefan, a music producer. In 2003, she made her debut single ‘Ultimate’ from the movie ‘Freaky Friday’ in which she starred.
The ‘The Parent Trap’ actress released her first debut album in 2004, ‘Speak’, which got a lot of criticism, especially with respect to Lohan’s talent as a singer. Despite that, it was the first high-seller from Casablanca Records in several years, selling 1,000,000 units in the United States and was ranked number four on the Billboards 200.
Lohan released her second album, ‘A Little More Personal (Raw)’, in 2005. It ranked number 20 in the Billboard 200 chart and was certified ‘Gold’. In 2008, she released a song ‘Bossy’, a Christmas song along with her younger sister Aliana Logan.
Her highest-charting single was ‘Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter To Father)’, which peaked at No. 57 on the Hot 100 in 2005. The song, ‘Rumors’, from her album, ‘Speak’, was also a highly grossing song. The music video for ‘Rumors’ was nominated for Best Pop Video at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards.
During this time, she had continued acting in many films including ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen’, ‘Mean Girls’, ‘Herbie: Fully Loaded’ and many more. Lohan received four awards at the 2004 Teen Choice Awards for ‘Freaky Friday’ and ‘Mean Girls’. ‘Mean Girls’ also earned her two wins at the 2005 MTV Movie Awards.
Despite Lohan being well-known through her Disney career, she became more prominent after the release of ‘Mean Girls’ from Tina Fey. She eventually gained notoriety for her partying scenes, rehab enrollment and DUI’s. Her film and music careers soon took hits as Lohan made the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
After her 2008 song, she did not release any new songs or albums. However, in 2007, she was working on her third album, tentatively titled ‘Spirit in the Dark’. She put the album on hold as she wanted to avoid the stress of working on her films and music at the same time.
Since then her music career has been non-existent, until 2019, when she signed with Casablanca Records to record and release her third studio album. In September 2019, she released an EDM track that was titled 'Xanax'. Despite her ups and downs in both, her acting career and music career, she said that she was just trying to take back the life she had before it all went downhill.
Hopefully, Lohan’s new music would signal her comeback. The actor and singer announced recently that she is moving back to the United States where she could kickstart a new phase. She was previously living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and was reportedly dating the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman.
