Missing you like candy, Mandy.
It’s time for Mandy Moore to stage a musical comeback.
If you don’t count Disney soundtracks — and you shouldn't — it’s been six years since Mandy Moore’s last album. Since putting out Amanda Leigh in 2009, the singer-slash-actress has appeared on television, voiced a Disney princess, ended her marriage to Ryan Adams, and become the living embodiment of #InstagramGoals. But while she didn't disappear, her music career fell by the wayside. “That side of my life has been dormant for too long,” Mandy recently told the Times Of India, promising that 2016 will be “the re-emergence of my music.”

In the meantime, while we wait patiently for new tunes, let’s remind ourselves of all the reasons why Mandy is the true queen of ‘00s pop.
Her hit “Candy” is every bit as iconic as Britney and Christina’s early singles.
Say the word "candy" to a '00s kid and there's a 50/50 chance they'll start singing the chorus to this song.
