WILLA WAS HERE, the dynamic Lava/Atlantic debut from 20-year-old Willa Ford, is as smart and sexy as the talented young singer whose name it bears. Urban-influenced dance pop tracks such as "Ooh Ohh" and "Prince Charming" reveal an artist with extraordinary confidence, not to mention an enormously soulful and strong singing voice. The brash first single, "I Wanna Be Bad," co-written with KNS, and produced by Brian & Josh - perfectly sums up Ford's tell-it-like-it-is world view. "I'm about to break all the rules," she sings, and with the irresistibility self-assured WILLA WAS HERE, it's abundantly clear that Willa Ford is going to live up to her promise.

Muze PNote No Britney-style worries about teen sexuality for Willa Ford--she's already made that headlong leap with her first single, "I Wanna Be Bad," a self-explanatory foray into the realms of wild childhood that simultaneously titillates and stakes the singer's claim to Spears's faux-bad girl territory. The inside biker chick picture is highly likely to grace not a few teen lockers and bedrooms, too.
Muze PNote Though its fairly obvious which songs matter here--the aforementioned "I Wanna Be Bad," the sassy "Did Ya' Understand That," and the slow-burning "Tender"--the rest of WILLA WAS HERE is equally easy on the ear. Ford's debut follows the contemporary pop/R&B-based template to the letter, but the vocal arrangements, apparently mostly by the singer herself, are always engaging, particularly on the pleading, classical-inflected "Don't You Wish." There's a nice Eurythmics quote on "Somebody Take the Pain Away," while "Prince Charming" is evidence that Ford hasn't totally abandoned her adolescence yet.
