Everyone at BSO would like to wish Gwen’s second successful solo and final album, The Sweet Escape, a Happy 5th Anniversary! Wow, can you believe it’s already been five years? The Sweet Escape went on to spawn five hit singles, including the worldwide smash and one of Gwen’s most popular songs to date, “The Sweet Escape”. “The Sweet Escape” actually went #1 in the US, Europe and New Zealand back in 2007! The Sweet Escape album as well reached the top five in the US, Canada, and Australia and peaked inside the top twenty in the United Kingdom. Gwen toured the world for the first time with her solo material to sold out crowds all over the globe. We are still crossing our fingers for the much talked about The Sweet Escape live DVD (rumors of bad production and tapings are keeping it away from us!) What I love about this album is that is sparked from interesting collaborations that including hip hop star Akon, Angelo Moore from Fishbone (featured on “Fluorescent”), Damian Marley, impressive mash-ups from The Sound of Music (which Gwen has always wanted to do!), reggae influences and the return of her work with both Pharrell Williams and Tony.
Now tell us — what was your favorite track from The Sweet Escape?
