About Hilary Duff
Much like Miley Cyrus' fans first knew her as an adorable Disney Channel tween called "Hannah Montana," Hilary Duff's fans knew her as the lead on Disney/ABC Kids' "Lizzie McGuire." Much like Cyrus, she transitioned from a career as a television and film actress to become a successful pop singer.
Duff's success with "Lizzie McGuire," including it's 2003 film adaptation, led to roles in other movies such as "Agent Cody Banks," "Cheaper By the Dozen," and "A Cinderella Story." At the same time, Duff began ramping up her musical career, producing albums "Santa Claus Lane" (2002), "Metamorphosis" (2003), the self-titled "Hilary Duff" (2004) and "Dignity" (2007).
Duff is well known for the song "So Yesterday," which appeared on "Metamorphosis" and topped the pop singles chart. Her musical style continued to evolve, however, as she worked to compete with the branding, image and sound from acts Avril Lavigne and Ashlee Simpson. By Duff's 18th birthday, she had become a brand in-and-of herself. The world, it seemed, was Hilary-themed.
Duff's last studio effort, "Dignity," was released in spring 2007. Though it garnered favorable reviews from critics, it was lackluster in sales. Still, the album produced Duff's highest-peaking US singles to date, including "With Love," which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart, and "Stranger," the album's third single.
Duff recently announced on Twitter she is delaying the release of her 2014 comeback album.
"Guys hate to break the news but the album won't be out in October," she wrote on August 29th. "You will have to wait a few more months. Love all the excitement tho."
The anticipation for the upcoming album follows Duff's release of two new singles in recent months. She debuted the pop cut "Chasing the Sun" in July, and then released "All About You" soon after.
