Her second album, “All Jacked Up,” hit platinum and saw more hit songs including, “California Girls,” “I Don’t Feel Like Loving You Today,” and “Politically Uncorrect.” Her third record, “One of the Boys,” solidified her position as one of contemporary music’s most original and multifaceted female artists.
