Brooke Allison is the debut album by pop singer Brooke Allison which was released on June 19, 2001. The album includes songs written by Mýa, Meredith Brooks and Allan Rich. "It's so crazy - in a good way - because the album has so many musical styles", Allison has said of the album. "I mean, we've got some pop, R&B and ballads, but my main style is probably pop Top 40."[citation needed] Allison appeared on multiple TV programs to promote the album, including Nickelodeon's Slime Time Live,[2] and the music video for the album's single "The Kiss-Off (Goodbye)" was often the Nick Video Pick of the Day, also on Nickelodeon. However, the album failed to chart on any major charts and was also negatively received by critics, and consequently promotion for the album stopped and Allison was dropped. "The Kiss-Off (Goodbye)" did manage to reach #28 on the Hot 100 Sales chart once a CD single was issued,[3] but no more singles were released from the project. She has not released any further solo material, but went on to become a member of the girl group BG5, who released several singles before disbanding.
