Lily Allen is a superstar British singer-songwriter and one of the biggest names in pop culture. Lily’s career took flight in the industry as a teenager and by 2005, through extensive marketing from herself on the likes of MySpace and a recording contract with Regal Recordings, she was receiving mainstream coverage. From there, she was allowed to exercise a more of a creative role in the release of her album and Alright, Still was released in July 2006. The album featured a host of tracks that had already established popularity on her MySpace page.
Soon her hit songs, such as LDN and Smile had picked up traction, and began to gain significant airplay. High-profile concerts at Wembley Stadium and awards such as the BMI Songwriting Award for ‘Smile’ followed and soon Lily was one of Britain’s best-loved famous acts. She became a hit at festivals and concerts across the country and abroad, and by 2008 she had aired two series of her BBC Three documentary, Lily Allen and Friends, which was based on her rise to fame through social platforms such as MySpace. By 2009, Lily was ready for a change of direction and released her album It’s Not Me, It’s You - saying: “I feel I’ve grown up a bit as a person and I hope it reflects that.”
The album was an instant hit and entered the UK Charts at number 1. It was later certified platinum and she began an album world tour. The album brought many more awards, not least for the hit song; The Fear. Lily made appearances at some of the biggest venues worldwide, once more at Wembley Stadium, again at festivals as high-profile as V Festival and Glastonbury. She was asked to write songs for the West End version of Bridget Jones’s Diary. With her 2014 album, Sheezus Lily further cemented her status as a top-level solo artist.
She has three UK number 1 singles, ten top 10s and a cumulative 176 weeks in the singles charts. Together with two UK number 1 albums and a combined 152 weeks in the album charts, the star has had huge chart success. Lily is an astonishing act who looks to tackle widespread issues such as inequality and fear as well as more light-hearted topics like relationships. Her constant pushing of genres, values and topics has gained Lily Allen further attention and has made her one of the most inspiring women of modern times.
