To date, Head over Heels has sold over 500,000 copies in the United States.In 1997, Abdul co-wrote a song called "Spinning Around" with record producer and composer Kara Dio Guardi, which was intended to be her comeback single from a new album, but the plan never materialized and the song was later given to Kylie Minogue."I'm Just Here for the Music" reached number 87 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Abdul's fifteenth song to appear on the chart.This came about as a result of stalled negotiations between Abdul and the series.Spellbound retained the dance-pop sound from Forever Your Girl and introduced elements of R&B, and sold 7 million copies worldwide.Her third studio album, Head over Heels (1995), retained both pop and R&B elements and saw moderate commercial success, peaking at number 18 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States and later becoming her lowest-selling release.
She seemed especially kind compared to fellow judge Simon Cowell, who was often blunt in his appraisals of the contestants' performances.
Notably, she received choreography credits in numerous films, including Can't Buy Me Love (1987), The Running Man (1987), Big (1988), Coming to America (1988), Action Jackson (1988), The Doors (1991), Jerry Maguire (1996), and American Beauty (1999).
She has received five MTV Video Music Award nominations, winning twice, as well as receiving the Grammy Award for Best Music Video for "Opposites Attract" in 1991.
When she realized that Cowell's over-the-top judging style was heartbreaking for many young contestants, Abdul was horrified and she considered leaving the series.
Although their differences often resulted in extremely heated on-air exchanges and confrontations, Cowell says he played a major role in convincing Abdul not to leave the series.
