Anne Marie Career
Career and Karate
She cut a solo demo for Rocket Records in 2013 called “Summer Girl”. Her solo career was curtailed in order for her to develop herself as an artist; in the interim, she guested on tracks by Gorgon City, Magnetic Man and Raized by Wolves, after which she caught the attention of Rudimental; one of their vocalists left, and so they asked Anne-Marie to replace her. She played on four tracks on their album We the Generation, of which two were co-features with Will Heard and Dizzee Rascal; the latter, “Rumour Mill”, reached number 67 on the UK Singles Chart and she spent two years touring alongside them.
On 10 June 2015, she released her debut EP Karate, which went out on the new label Major Tom’s; two singles were released from it, “Gemini” and “Karate”, which led to her making her first solo live performances. The same year on November, she released “Do It Right”, which peaked at number 90 on the UK Singles Chart. It was originally intended to appear on her debut full-length album, which at the time, had the working title of Breathing Fire.
Speak Your Mind
On 20 May 2016, she released “Alarm”, the first single from her debut album. It spent one week at 76 in June before resurfacing a month later; it later peaked at number 2 and was certified Platinum in the UK. In October 2016, she was confirmed to play at the thirty-first edition of Eurosonic Noorderslag in Groningen, Netherlands. The same month, Clean Bandit released their song “Rockabye”, with her as the main vocalist and featuring Jamaican rapper Sean Paul. It took nine consecutive weeks at number one and gained the coveted Christmas number one. The song has since been certified multi-platinum across most of Europe, North America, and Oceania.
On 10 March 2017, she released “Ciao Adios”, which she had previously performed live at KOKO on 28 November 2016. The single became a top 10 hit in the UK, charting at number nine and being certified Platinum by the BPI. Her next single saw her collaborate with Snakehips on “Either Way”, which also featured Joey Badass. On 21 September, she released “Heavy”, followed by “Then” on 15 December.
In 2018, she collaborated with Marshmello on “Friends”. The song was released on 9 February 2018 and was her first top five UK hit as a lead artist. On 22 February, she declared that her debut studio album, Speak Your Mind, would be released on 27 April 2018. Prior to the release of her album, she released the single “2002” on 20 April in response to constant urging by Ed Sheeran, the co-creator of the song. In November 2018, Anne and James Arthur recorded “Rewrite the Stars” from The Greatest Showman for the re-recording of its soundtrack, The Greatest Showman: Reimagined.
