Album Review

With the popularity of the Kidz Bop series and likeminded kid-oriented albums of pop hits, it was only a matter of time before the longstanding queen of preteen culture, Barbie, got in on the act. Barbie Hit Mix's liner notes show Barbie and her friends gussied up in rocker threads and guitars alongside tickets for a "Pink Dolls" concert, suggesting that the album could be a collection of songs covered by Barbie and her band (could a Barbie & the Rockers reunion be far behind?). However, the compilation actually reveals Barbie to be a relatively hip DJ. Barbie Hit Mix kicks off with a surprisingly convincing version of OutKast's "Hey Ya!"; even though this rendition of the song overlooks the inherent bittersweet nature of lyrics like "Nothing is forever...then what makes love the exception," it does score points for keeping the lines about all the Beyoncés and Lucy Lius reporting to the dancefloor. Barbie must be a big OutKast fan, because none of the other songs on Barbie Hit Mix sound as much like the original versions. In fact, most of the rest of the songs are performed by a female vocalist (who might as well be Barbie herself) and a chorus of girls.

Since 1959, Barbie has been everything from an astronaut to a veterinarian, and her image has graced lunch boxes, makeup, coloring books, and everything in between, so it was only a matter of time before Mattel's plastic queen ventured into pop music. The first album attributed to Barbie was 1991's The Look, a collection of pop songs from the time covered by session musicians. Barbie fell silent until 1998's Beyond Pink, which is credited to Barbie and her friends Teresa and Christie and features...
