Back in January, we warned you that Jessica Simpson was recording a country album -- though, really, how she finds the time. Anyway, a single from the disc has been leaked-released, and we're ever so ... um ... pleased? ... proud? ... well, something to provide you with the sneakiest of peaks of "Come On Over," available for the downloading for the time being. As of this posting, 2,930 people has ripped and run off with the single, no doubt because of their love for good country music. Which this isn't. --Robert Wilonsky
