"Come on Over" is a song by Jessica Simpson and is the first single from her first country and fifth studio album, Do You Know, which was released on September 9, 2008.[1] "Come on Over" was released to country radio in the United States on May 27, 2008 and served as her debut single for Columbia Nashville.[2]

Background and theme

"Come on Over" was co-written by country music artist Rachel Proctor, Victoria Banks and Simpson herself. The lyrics of the uptempo single focus on the narrator's paramour. Simpson said, "The fun thing about the song is that anxiety of wanting the guy to come over right then and there. Everybody's felt that before."[3]

Music video

The music video for "Come on Over" was shot on June 19, 2008.[4] It was directed by Liz Friedlander and shot in Little Creek Ranch, California. The video was premiered on Simpson's official website on July 11.[5] It debuted on the CMT Top 20 countdown on August 1 at number #3 and peaked at #2 the following week.[6] It reached #1 on Yahoo!'s Top 100 Country Videos list on August 8.[7] It also peaked at #16 on GAC Top 20 Countdow.[8]

The video begins with Simpson standing outside her house making a phone call to her love interest. She is then shown inside her house sitting next to the kitchen sink, looking out of the living room windows. In other shots, Simpson sings with a live backing band in a barn house, and sits on the back of a pick-up van. At the end of the video, she is shown sitting in a bathtub after a man is depicted leaving his car; his face is not shown. The video includes a close-up of the bottle for Simpson's fragrance, "Fancy", released in August 2008.[9][10]

Critical reception

Billboard.com described the song as "Sexy and flirtatious" adding that "'Come On Over' is everything it needs to be—undeniably country and not forced. Under watchful maestro John Shanks and Brett James, Simpson shines on a steel guitar-laden track that finds her pleading with a beau to drop everything for a little loving."[11] Rolling Stone said that "Surprisingly, her first twangy single is a slick treat", and that "Simpson keeps it simple and on a Shania Twain-esque foot-stomper built on energetic acoustic and slide guitars."[12]

Jim Malec of The 9513, however, gave the song a "thumbs down" review, as he thought that the lyrics were "three minutes of step-by-step instructions pertaining to the exact method by which you will leave your house/apartment", "one of the most pointless songs [he's] ever heard", and "like something a fifth-grader would write". He also felt that the song's steel guitars were gratuitous, and that overall, the production was "straightforward proto-pop".[13]

The song was nominated for a 2008 CMT fan-voted online award in the category of best "(What? I've Always Been Country) Crossover Artist", but lost to Darius Rucker's "Don't Think I Don't Think About It."[14]

Chart performance

In the United States, "Come on Over" became the most-added song to country radio for the week of June 6, 2008, debuting at number 41 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It broke a record held by Miranda Lambert ("Me and Charlie Talking") and Brad Cotter ("I Meant To") for highest-debuting first chart entry by a solo artist; both artists debuted at number 42 on that same chart.[15] The single made its Billboard Hot 100 debut at number 26, falling to 37 the following week. 'Come on Over' flopped on the UK Singles Chart; it reached number 81, becoming her lowest peak to date.
