Going back to a lot of firsts and debuts this week, Fey arrived on the scene in 1995 and became an idol and role model for the teens and tweens with her self-titled debut album. The album was released by Sony Music and she was a key artist for the label. The label knew exactly what they had when they signed Fey.
The album was released in March of ’95 and by the time summer rolled around, the singer was on the top of the charts and on the cover of every magazine cover. Mexico loved Fey. Undoubtedly for a good reason. Fey played into the teenage market with hip outfits and a style of music that music lovers needed. The album had six singles with its release and sold over two million copies in less than a year.
The dance songs from the album, Fey bordered the electronic trance vibe while her ballads were still quite upbeat. She didn’t sound like an old lady singing her heart out. Fey might have been in her early twenties when she recorded her album but her youthful vocals helped her connect to the fans that were buying her music.
Going back and listening to the album today, quite of few of the tracks feel very dated. There is definitely a nineties sound that goes along with this that didn’t hold up. I don’t think fans mind though. The ’90s sound is very popular right now especially with the resurgence of all the artists from this era. So many comebacks and reunion tours have sold out stadiums. Fey joined the first and second 90s Pop Tour. Fans want to hear these favorite tracks, over and over.
