Anne-Marie’s rise to stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. A former 3 x world karate champion and West End child star, the 29-year-old has gone onto become one of the world’s most-loved, and successful, pop artists of recent years, with 4 x UK Top 10 singles and 4.5 billion global streams to her name.
Following a string of global hit singles and huge media support, Anne-Marie’s UK Top 3 debut album, Speak Your Mind, was released in 2018. A home to her playfully infectious pop and idiosyncratic storytelling, the album housed a swarm of relatable chart gems including her breakthrough break-up hit 'Alarm', the Clean Bandit and Sean Paul collaboration ‘Rockabye’ [the track secured the coveted 2016 Christmas No.1 spot in the UK], ‘Ciao Adios’, friendzone anthem and Marshmello collaboration ‘FRIENDS’, as well as her Ed Sheeran co-write and nostalgia track, '2002'. It’s no wonder, then, that Anne-Marie was crowned that year’s biggest-selling debut artist in the UK. Now Platinum certified in the UK, the LP has sold in excess of two million copies, globally.
Following the release of her debut album, Anne-Marie landed further high-profile collaborations with James Arthur for their rendition of 'Rewrite the Stars', taken from The Great Showman: Reimagined soundtrack, as well as her Lauv collaboration on ‘f*ck, I’m lonely’. Not to mention a global support tour with Ed Sheeran across the UK, Europe and North America for his Divide run and countless sold out headline shows worldwide.
Over her career to date, Anne-Marie has become a BRITs Critics Choice finalist; Nordoff Robbins ‘Best Newcomer’ winner; 9 x BRIT Award nominee; an official ambassador of The Princes Trust and MIND charity; Stylist Magazine ‘Artist of the Year’ and Royal Academy of the Arts committee member.
This year, Anne-Marie released her empowering comeback single, ‘Birthday’. Landing front covers and huge playlist support from launch, the single has now been streamed over 20 million times. Additionally, she currently features on the Rudimental smash single ‘Come Over’ alongside Tion Wayne.
