'I love Chicago nightlife!' says Danielle Bollinger, pop-music's newest 'it girl.' Her single, 'Kiss The Sky', continues to rise up the Billboard charts. Danielle's in high spirits, as well she should be. Her debut album When The Broken Hearted Love Again hits stores this month and is enjoying rave reviews. Ranging from pop to rock to even country, the record carries a simple but powerful message:

Think positive.

There are so many new albums being released this summer, yet everyone seems to be talking about yours. Why is When The Broken Hearted Love Again resonating with so many people?

I think because the songs are fun and people can relate. I feel so blessed by the response. It's nerve- racking to wonder how an album is going to be welcomed, because music is so relative. But as long as people are feeling my music and experiencing the sound and lyrics and have been touched by it in some way, then I have done my job.

Are the tracks your personal stories?

Just about every song has personal meaning. I wanted to do an album that meant something. An album that could make people dance and feel something inside. I am inspired by making people feel good, and I think this album does that.

What song means the most to you and why?

'You'll Always Have Me.' I have been through some pretty tough times in my journey as an artist, and if it weren't for my family and friends being there to support me, it would have been a lot harder. The song is for them.

When The Broken Hearted Love Again is a pop album, with rock and country influences, yet it's also finding a home on the dance floor.

I love how DJs and remixers can take a version of the song, and turn it around and flip it upside down, and make it a totally different sound. It's really cool.

Are you afraid you might be labeled a dance artist?

Absolutely not. I love dance music! I love any excuse to shake my booty.

How many times has your heart been broken?

A couple of times.

How many hearts have you broken?

I wish I could say zero, but I would be lying.

Does loving and losing make us better people?

I think so. Some people live their whole life without love, so I would rather love and lose then to have never loved at all.
