During the early part of this century, British singer Lily Allen was one of the hottest musical acts in the UK. Besides releasing hit singles like “Smile”, “The Fear”, “Who’d Have Known”, and “F%$k You” the wild child also had her own chat show.
After about three years of success she then announced that she was taking a hiatus from music and proceeded to spread her wings opening a clothes rental shop with her sister, than started her own record label and had a couple of daughters with her husband Sam Cooper. In 2012 she announced that she was working on her third album. In the fall of 2013 Allen released a cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” and it reached the top spot on the UK singles chart.
Lily Allen released her album Sheezus in May of 2014; its first single is “Hard Out Here”. She admitted that the title was a nod to Kanye West and that a song on it was inspired by her Twitter feud with Azealia Banks. She is no wilting flower our Lily Allen. Allen speaks her mind and seems to be without a filter so has taken on the likes of Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue and Amy Winehouse.
Most recently she has released her fourth album, No Shame, and it is a very personal one dealing with her relationship with her kids, the breakup of her marriage, bouts of depression, and substance abuse.
