Teen queen Lindsay Lohan will release her debut album, "Speak," Dec. 7 via Casablanca. First single "Rumors" jumps 37-31 this week on Billboard's Top 40 Mainstream chart and debuts at No. 24 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 singles tally. The cut reached a new peak last week at No. 17 on the Hot Digital Tracks chart.

The artist's Web site is hosting a video for "Rumors," in which she escapes menacing paparazzi on her way to writhing in an elevator and frolicking in a dark nightclub.

Although a full track list was not available at deadline, "Speak" finds Lohan collaborating with such producers as Desmond Child, Cory Rooney (Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez), Andreas Carlson (Britney Spears, 'N Sync) and Jon Shanks (Ashlee Simpson).

Lohan is expected to perform "Rumors" Dec. 6 on ABC's "Good Morning America." Other appearances are being lined up on "Regis & Kelly" and "The Late Show With David Letterman."

Best known for her starring roles in "Mean Girls," "Freaky Friday" and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," Lohan has previously been heard as a vocalist on soundtracks for the latter two films. She also contributed a song to the soundtrack for this summer's "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement."

As an actress, Lohan is immersed in six projects in various stages of development, including a revival of the "Herbie" franchise, a starring role as a young fashion designer in "Fashionistas" and an as-yet-untitled project with fellow musician/actor Nick Cannon.
