Although it had a slow build to number one, Paula Abdul's debut album eventually dominated the airwaves and MTV in the late 1980s, and made former dancer and Lakers Girl Paula Abdul a household name. An appealing mix of street-smarts, pixie cuteness, and sensuality established Abdul as a girl-next-door type for the hip-hop generation, and her catchy dance hits exemplified the pop-R&B production standards of the day.
The album spawned four Top Ten hits, including the cute and funky "Opposites Attract," the tough yet vulnerable "Straight Up," and the sugary title track. Two additional singles from the album charted, and by the end of 1989, Paula Abdul was a bona fide star.
