Jessica Simpson just revealed she is back in the recording studio. “Right now, I’m starting a record. I have a recording studio in my house so I can be around my babies. They might try to sing over me, but they won’t be my background vocalists,” Simpson told Extra. Although the singer is embarking on her music career again, it doesn’t mean she is abandoning the fashion industry. “Fashion will always be a part of who I am. If I’m not wearing a good outfit, I can’t sing a good song. It really kind of all works together,” Simpson stated.
The Jessica Simpson Collection is a fashion line of clothing, sunglasses, handbags, shoes, jewelry, and fragrances. The line is currently worth over $750 million dollars, and it is expected to reach $1 billion dollars in revenue. If Simpson’s fashion line reaches the billion dollar mark, it will become the first celebrity owned clothing line to earn a billion dollars annually.
Simpson’s music career may not have reached the billion dollar mark, but her career has been very successful. The pop singer has released seven studio albums including Sweet Kisses, Irresistible, In This Skin, Rejoyce: The Christmas Album, A Public Affair, Do You Know, and Happy Christmas. Simpson’s debut album, Sweet Kisses, sold a total of four million copies. The project produced three singles including “I Wanna Love You Forever,” “Where You Are,” and “I Think I’m in Love with You.” Simpson’s second album Irresistible didn’t fair as well as her debut effort. Although Irresistible peaked at Number 6 on the Billboard 200, it only sold 500,000 copies.
The pop singer‘s music career was at a stand-still when her third album, In This Skin, was dropped in 2003. Simpson’s decision to film a reality show with her then husband Nick Lachey, proved to be a career-saving decision. The popularity of the MTV’s Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica in 2003, helped push In This Skin to the Number 2 position on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The project went on to sell three million copies, and it became one of the best-selling albums of the year.
