"Bubbly" is a song by American recording artist Colbie Caillat from her debut album, Coco (2007). Written by Caillat and Jason Reeves and produced by Mikal Blue, the song was released as the album's lead single in May 2007. It remains Caillat's biggest hit in the US to date, and her only single to reach the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100.

Music video[edit]

The single's music video, directed by Liz Friedlander, aired on MTV, VH1 and CMT. A still from the music video was used as the cover for Caillat's debut album, Coco. The video/single is also featured in the hit PlayStation 2 karaoke game SingStar Pop Vol 2, released in late September 2008 in the United States. It was also featured in SingStar Hottest Hits in PAL regions.

Reception[edit]

Susan Visakowitz of Billboard wrote that Caillat's "warm vocals along with a gentle acoustic arrangement effortlessly conjure the idyllic California she calls home".[1]

On the issue dated October 6, 2007, "Bubbly" rose from number sixteen to number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, eventually peaking at number five for seven weeks. It also topped the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks and Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks charts for nineteen and fourteen weeks, respectively. The song was placed at number two on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks year-end chart of 2008, behind Sara Bareilles' "Love Song".[2] The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on December 13, 2007,[3] with sales of more than 2.6 million downloads in the US.[4] It peaked at number two for three weeks on the Canadian Hot 100. In Australia—where "Bubbly" was used in a promotional video for the Seven Network soap opera Home and Away—it reached number one on the ARIA Singles Chart for the week of April 7, 2008. Elsewhere, the single reached number one in the Czech Republic and charted inside the top ten in Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Slovakia, and Sweden. It did not fare as well in the British Isles, peaking at number fifty-eight in the United Kingdom and number forty-eight in Ireland.

On VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the '00s, "Bubbly" ranked #71 on the list.[5]
