As the lead single from Steps’ second album, ‘Love’s Got A Hold On My Heart’ was a risk-averse, but very welcome return for the group.
‘Pop’ was *NSYNC’s opportunity to hit back at the critics. But their bold new sound spelt the end for pop music as we knew it…
‘So Good’ was a modest description of Rachel Stevens’ latest single, which (briefly) threatened to put her firmly atop the charts.
Despite being the big balladeer of her peers, Jessica Simpson’s second single turned up the tempo and perfectly captured the essence of ’90s bubblegum pop.
‘Treat Her Like A Lady’ answered a question that no-one was asking: what happens when you cross Celine Dion with dancehall reggae?

‘Best Friends’ saw the allSTARS*, a new mixed-sex pop group, attempt to conquer the charts with the theme tune from their television show…sound familiar?
