April 3, 2007 – Hilary Duff’s Fourth Studio Album, Dignity, is Released Through Hollywood Records
“Where’s your, where’s your, where’s your dignity? I think you lost it in the Hollywood hills. Where’s your, where’s your, where’s your dignity? Can’t buy respect but you can pick up that bill.”
On April 3, 2007, actress and singer Hilary Duff’s fourth studio album, titled Dignity, was released through Hollywood Records. The album’s content was based on her life events between the release of her 2004 album and this one, which included a stalker, a breakup with her boyfriend of two years, and her parents’ divorce after 22 years of marriage. This album was also different from her previous albums in that Duff wrote all but one song on the album; before she mainly selected songs and contributed writing to a few.
To promote the album, a two-part documentary titled Hilary Duff: This is Now premiered on MTV on April 3, 2007. Critical response for the album was mainly positive, with the album debuting at number 3 on the Billboard 200 Charts, selling 140,000 copies in its first week. There were three singles released: “Play with Fire,” which peaked at number 31 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart; “With Love,” which peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, and number 25 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart; and “Stranger,” which peaked at 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart, number 83 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, and number 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
