Jessica Simpson Puts a Ring on It

WelcheMusic congratulates Jessica Simpson on her newly announced engagement with former NFL player Eric Johnson. Simpson parted with ex-husband Nick Lachey back in 2005.Tomorrow, Simpson will release the holiday album Happy Christmas, including the preceding single “My Only Wish.” The set will be released via Primary Wave Records, famous for purchasing 50% of Kurt Cobain’s music catalog. Earlier this fall, it was announced that Jessica Simpson’s in the studio with producers The-Dream and Tricky Stewart working on up-coming albums.

Jessica Simpson made her debut in November 1999 with the album Sweet Kisses. The set was certified 2x platinum in the States and yielded three singles.  Her debut hit was “I Wanna Love You Forever,” a No.3 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The track reached the top ten across the world  – including the UK, Norway, Sweden, Australia and Japan. That track was quickly followed by “Where You Are,” a duet with former hub Lachey.

Despite six studio albums, her own MTV reality show and endless press coverage, Jessica Simpson has only reached Billboard Hot 100 top ten with her debut hit. She’s even had a more successful career in the UK where “With You” (2003) and “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” (2005) have reached the top ten.

Jessica Simpson’s latest album came in September 2008 – an attempt to cross over to country. Her last pop album was “A Public Affair,” including the title track which featured appearances from Christina Applegate, Christina Milian, Eva Longoria Parker and Ryan Seacrest in the video. That set was released in 1996.

Jessica Simpson is engaged to be married. Her new fiancé is a former NFL player.
