SHE' S created some of the biggest tunes of the past two years.
Get to know British pop beauty Ann-Marie, the enchanting voice that sings chart-topper Rockabye. Anne-Marie (full name Anne-Marie Nicholson) is a British singer-songwriter.
Released on 21 October 2016, the single entered the charts at number 7, rising to number three the following week, and then the week after that knocking Little Mix from the top spot to claim number 1.
The single spent a total of nine weeks at number 1 – and was gained the coveted Christmas Number 1 titled seeing off competition X Factor winner Matt Terry and became the first UK Christmas number 1 to not be an X Factor single, charity or prank number 1 since Michael Andrews 2003 cover of Tears For Fears’ Mad World.
In 2016 Anne-Marie enjoyed her biggest hit to date with Rockabye – the single released by electro group Clean Bandit and also featuring music legend Sean Paul.
Anne-Marie’s debut solo album (with the working title Breathing Fire) has been a long time coming – and while no release date has been set as of yet, it is expected to be released at some point in 2017.
However the pop star had discussed her excitement of her debut record as far back as January 2016, saying the bulk of the material had been created over the six months prior. We’re getting the artwork done now – that is crazy,” she told Brighton paper The Argus at the time.
Anne-Marie released her debut single, Karate, in 2015 from her debut EP of the same name.
The EP also produced the singles Gemini and Boy but all three tracks failed to crack the UK charts.
