Paula Abdul: Straight Up

$10.00

"Straight Up" is a song recorded by American singer Paula Abdul for her debut album Forever Your Girl (1988). It was written and produced by Elliot Wolff, and was released as the album's third single on November 22, 1988, by Virgin Records. "Straight Up" became Abdul's first worldwide hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and brought her widespread public attention after two failed singles. The song is a mid-tempo dance tune. Daniel J. Levitin's This Is Your Brain on Music praises the song as "hold[ing] a certain appeal over many, many listenings."
