Debbie Gibson, an icon from the 1980s, bares her heart in a new video for “Me Not Loving You.”
Debbie Gibson, anyone? She’s a phenomenal pop singer and songwriter, and she’s the youngest woman to ever create, produce, and perform a No. 1 hit single! Gibson’s long-awaited 10th studio pop album The Body Remembers—her first in 20 years—is a welcome return to the scene. We’ve got her video for “Me Not Loving You” right here. The video depicts Gibson traveling through the mountains, pondering on her past love, and brilliantly encapsulates what the song signifies, illustrating how we feel when we’re attempting to talk ourselves out of repeated reminders of a recent romance. Gibson is in great voice on it, and it’s apparent she hasn’t lost an ounce of the charisma and talent that have kept her in the game for so long.
Gibson explains, “I really wanted to let the song speak for itself by focusing on the genuine emotion and delivery.” “With his cinematic approach, Director Nick Spanos seems to have delved into Herb Ritts and Matthew Rolston territory, and it beautifully brings to life the story I want to tell as a composer.”
The Body Remembers is a collection of current pop hooks, peppy club bangers, and melodic-yet-nostalgic compositions that pay respect to her previous work. The Body Remembers embodies everything Gibson stands for: self-determination, living your best life, and remaining forever electrified. Each song on the CD is a visceral portrayal of Gibson’s life over the last decade, showcasing the defining component of Gibson’s mystique, her songwriting.
Gibson, who was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, achieved triple platinum with her debut album, Out of the Blue, in 1987, at the age of 16. Gibson became the youngest artist to compose, produce, and perform a No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 with the album’s single “Foolish Beat,” and she is still the youngest female to do so to this day. Gibson shared Songwriter of the Year honors with Bruce Springsteen in 1989, as the solo songwriter on each of her Top 20 singles.She’s sold over 16 million CDs globally and has ten studio albums and five compilations to her credit. She continues to have big singles, such as #VegasVibe Remix from “Girls Night Out (Tracy Young Remixes),” which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Dance Club chart and No. 4 on the UK Music Week singles chart in 2020.
Gibson made his Broadway debut in Les Miserables in 1992 and played Sandy in Grease on London’s West End in 1993. In 17 years, she appeared in 17 musicals, including the roles of Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Sally Bowles in Neil Patrick Harris’ Broadway version of Cabaret. She has appeared on Dancing with the Stars, produced/starred in the Hallmark Channel films Summer of Dreams and Wedding of Dreams, and appears in season 5B of the popular Netflix series Lucifer in a special musical episode titled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam.” Gibson recently wrapped production on The Class, a film starring Anthony Michael Hall, Charlie Gillespie (Julie and the Phantoms), and Lyric Ross.
