Product Description

Willa Was Here by Willa Ford

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

Wannabe pop queen Willa Ford disses "cheesy (lyrics) about butterflies, sunshine and candy" in the liner notes of her debut album. She might actually score the attempted points against the likes of Mariah Carey and Mandy Moore if her own songs didn't cling desperately to a handful of similarly radio-ready templates. Here horny ("I Wanna Be Bad"), there bitchy ("Joke's on You"), everywhere wistfully lookin'-for-love ("Tender," "Prince Charming"), Ford hardly stakes out her own vocal turf either. She draws on third-hand Britney affectations and the occasional Carey-like dog-whistle squeal, while various production teams cobble together similarly derivative tracks. Ford's romantic fireworks with a Backstreet Boy brought her a small notoriety long before this CD's appearance, and "Tired" makes it clear that she already considers herself a big-enough name that listeners will respond to gripes about fame she hasn't yet achieved. As if. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

Did ya understand that, great song about a girl just fed up with the cheating guy.
"ckchica"
Don't give your money to corporate ... like Willa Ford or Britney Spears because they are the reson why pop music died.
Distant Voyageur
Her album "Willa Was Here" has some really catchy pop beats, decents vocals, and overall good songs.

There's more to Amanda Williford (no, Willa Ford isn't her real name) than being Nick Carter's ex-girlfriend and making a sorry guest spot on the short-lived "Raising Dad". She has a very good singing voice, and she also has a unique style about herself (dress and subject matter).
If you're looking for a Britney Spears or Mandy Moore-esque album, then look somewhere else. Willa tells us straight off that she's not about that on "Tired", even though that song could use a rewrite or two. The only other thing most people know about her is her nasty-girl image, as shown on the hit "I Wanna Be Bad" (though that song features a very generic rap from Royce Da 5'9"); her nasty side continues to show on "Don't You Wish" and "Ooh Ooh". She cuts a cheatin' man loose on "Did Ya Understand That", but on "Tender", the only slow jam, she adequately explains actions like that.
Sometimes Willa's style may not be relatable to many people, particularly the last two songs ("Haunted Heart" and "Dare"), but as I said before, her style is unique (eerie, perhaps). "Prince Charming" is good until she starts giving shout-outs, and the bridges to "Don't You Wish" and "Joke's On You" sound a little off-key. But this album still deserves a listen. It's not exactly one of those rush-out-and-get-it albums, but it's worth a listen.

I'm sorry, but to all the people out there who doubted Willa's talent, this album has proved each and every one of you wrong. This is a very good album with a lot of power and promise. I've followed Willa's career for a year and a half now. While everyone else was saying that her first single "I Wanna Be Bad" would never make it to the Top 40, I was singing right along!
Sure, she might have played a Backstreet Boy (and taken his TV), but it doesn't mean everyone should go around saying nasty things about her. She's done a few things I wouldn't do, but she is a very talented writer with an impressive debut CD.
Now,my review of this WONDERFUL CD!:
1. I Wanna Be Bad: For all those of you who have not heard the song, BUY THIS CD AND LISTEN TO IT! The track on here is the rap version feat. Royce. Her debut single is edgy, promiscuous and FUN! 5 Stars.
2. Did Ya' Understand That: Sort of R&B-themed and very defiant, this song goes right ahead, tells another exactly what she thinks of 'em and says she wants no more to do with them. 5 stars.
3. Ooh Ooh: It took a very long time for this to grow on me, but the jazziness is infectious and the breathy lyrics are beautiful.
4. Tired: What a song, what a song! "Tired of the blondes that look like me, tired of the people sayin' 'Britney' Tired of the pop that should flop and should never be on TV and in your teen magazines." This song, almost rap and opposed to pop, outright disses her predecessors, her famous ex, ("Shame, it's the game you play for fame, but give it some time, you won't remember their names.") and goes on to tell just the kind of girl Amanda Williford is. 5 stars.
5. Joke's On You: My second favorite of the album. So easy to dance to, so much fun to listen to, and such a remarkable amount of girl power!

'Willa Was Here' is easily one of the worst CDs I have ever heard. It is overproduced, run-of-the-mill, cliched, low-quality teenybopper pop accompanied by the most annoying, untrained, screeching voice I've ever heard. The lyrics are downright silly (not "bad" at all!) and no amount of computer regurgitation can make Willa's "singing" even listenable. I felt embarrassed for Ms. Ford just listening to this horrible mess.
Mind you, I didn't purchase this -- I downloaded it to see if she was really worth all the hype she's getting. Two words for the thinking public -- DON'T BUY.

She can't sing. Her songwriting skills are limited. Her claim to fame is that she dated a pop singer who used his clout to get her a recording contract. When her lack of talent cost her that contract, she signed with a new label, took over a year to come up with a new CD, and here is the result: a bitter, pathetic attempt to be "cool" by being "bad." Willa, the joke's on you. You want to sound different but you sound just like everyone else. [....]

She is the best female vocalist that has came out in a LONG time~ SHe definitley has a huge musical future that's ONLY beginning~
1. I Wanna Be Bad- Ya know that lil voice inside ur head that every once in a while goes "I wanna be bad?" This song brings out that voice~ Great song to sing and dance to~
2. Did Ya' Understand That- Have u ever wondered why u liked or stayed w/ that loser guy that u didnt need? Willa understands that this guy is no good and she no longer needs him! So she tells him how it is~ A great girl power song~
3. Ooh Ooh- This song will get stuck in your head! Fun song~
4. Tired- She really expresses her views on this song~
5. This song is awesome! She's telling this guy he thought he was so sly but she was messing around too!
6. Tender- She shows a softer side in this song. Every girl should be able to relate at leats a lil bit to this song~
7. Don't You Wish- This song isnt one of my favorites but I like it!
8. Prince Charming- This is a cute song about finding ur one Prince Charming~ Nice beat and lyrics!
9. Somebody Take The Pain Away- It's a great song! Listen to the lyrics. There was pain behind this song. It related to me w/ a certain ending of a relationship.
10. Haunted Heart- It has a cool beat to it!
11. Dare- Really fun song~
I think EVERYONE should own this CD!~ I LOVE it~
