#flopprincessthrowback: Holly Valance

19 posts in this topic

Out of the pop dollies of that era she (probably by accident) released one of the strongest of the bunch: her sophomore album, State of Mind.

Poor Kilo must've been livid when her usual collaborators gave Holly that album while she got stuck with Body Language.

One of my favorites:

After three hit singles from her debut, she released this as the news single from the project:

 

It ended up being the only one and her last to date. I guess it was a bit out there for some. Record labels were much more brutal back though. It went top 10 in the UK, top 20 in Australia and top 40 in other markets yet they never bothered again. Nowadays we see some kept on life support for a few albums in a row with three older hits to justify the efforts.

Her Kiss Kiss song was previously used in the credits for the Graham Norton show. In the UK, she was like Rachel Stevens (S Club Seven), a well-received album but without the personality to back it up so she faded quickly.

She's now married to one of the billionaire Candi brothers who develop properties in London that sell for millions.

Holly Valance was another of our soap stars turned pop singers.  She had a huge legal battle with an ex manager of hers that put a stop to her career and she has never properly recovered.  It was very messy and she seemed completely drained by it.  I have to admit to loving Naughty Girl and State of Mind a lot.  And we have to say it, she is amazing beautiful.  I actually thought she could make it big as an actress due to looking so perfect.  Let's face is, so many ex models etc become stars in the USA through being exceptionally beautiful.  She is married to an English millionare now and is Holly Candy which really sounds like a porn star name :lol: I saw her as a guest star on an Agatha Christie Miss Marple show a few years back.  She was still stunning. 

My favourite Holly song

Tarkan's original was a fairly big international hit -I even own his album- so I guess it was detrimental for the performance of the single in those markets.

The most "high profile" role I remember her being on was playing a singer in Liam Neeson's "Taken".

It was the Tarkan version on the graham norton credits so the song  was known by the time she sang it otherwise I think she would have flopped.

I remember the song was huge in Mexico. As @Je5u5 says, this perhaps affected Holly's version, which honestly I do not remember, lol.
