10 Songs That Prove Hilary Duff Will Forever Be A Pop Force

Relive the glory of the 10 best Hilary Duff songs below.

Summer means a lot of things, but right now it signals the return of Hilary Duff. Before Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Bella Thorne were Disney stars, Duff was the Disney star. On Lizzie McGuire, the world got to know her acting talent, but she started to shine as a singer when she had the chance to portray a pop star in The Lizzie McGuire Movie, displaying syrupy, sweet vocals that were perfect for launching a career in mainstream music.

Since 2002, Duff has released five studio albums. While she first began in a pop-rock singer-songwriter role, she has since evolved into a dance-pop star who isn’t afraid to bare her soul or flaunt her confidence. Duff’s last album Breathe In. Breathe Out. was released in 2015, so we can only hope that new music could be on the horizon soon.

In any case, Duff is back on the fourth season of Younger as Kelsey Peters (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET). To celebrate the show’s return (and Duff’s presence in all of our lives), relive the glory of the 10 best Hilary Duff songs below.

“Come Clean”

“Sparks”

“So Yesterday”

“Tattoo”

“Fly”

“Reach Out”

To show the world she was no longer the Duff Disney fans knew, “Reach Out” was a re-branding song from her Best Of album, which was also perfect for her threesome reintroduction to TV on Gossip Girl. The BDSM-inferring video accompanying it showed fans Duff had matured.

“Sweet Sixteen”

“Anywhere But Here”

“Stranger”

“Hey Now -- What Dreams Are Made Of”
