Nick Lachey’s solo album out today.
Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica star and 98° member Nick Lachey is releasing his first solo album today. It’s titled Soulo. (Nick, it probably wasn’t a good idea to let Jessica spell the name of your first album.) The record features curiously titled tracks such as “Shut Up,” “Edge Of Eternity,” and “Open You Eyes” (sic). The Boston Globe says the record “won’t do much to change his primary public image as the perpetually exasperated husband of a disturbingly dim wife.” USA TODAY gives the album 1.5 stars, saying Nick demonstrates “unsinkable perkiness.”
