De Britse Lily Rose Beatrice Allen brengt in 2006 haar eerste album, Alright Still uit. Smile wordt in augustus van dat jaar haar eerste hit in Nederland en bereikt de top 10.

In 2009,als het album It’s Not Me, It’s You verschijnt, scoort ze met The Fear haar tweede notering. De opvolger, F**k You, bereikt de derde plaats. In september laat de zangeres weten dat ze geen nieuwe albums meer zal uitbrengen. De zangeres is ontevreden over de gang van zaken in de muziekindustrie en is bang dat ze geen geld meer kan verdienen.

In 2013 is de zangeres weer actief. Zo staat ze, als Lily Rose Cooper, opnieuw in de Top 40. Met True Love, een hit voor P!nk, scoort ze haar zesde hit in ons land. In november zingt ze het nummer Somewhere Only We Know, dat voor een commercial wordt gebruikt. De single bereikt de eerste plaats in de Britse en Ierse hitlijst. Een week later verschijnt Hard Out There, het nummer dat ook in Nederland een hit wordt.


Songtekst

Riding through the city on my bike all day
Cause the filth took away my licence
It doesn't get me down and I feel okay
Cause the sights that I'm seeing are priceless

Everything seems to look as it should
But I wonder what goes on behind doors
A fella looking dapper, but he's sittin' with a slapper
Then I see its a pimp and his crack whore

You might laugh you might frown
Walkin' round London town

Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see its all lies

There was a little old lady, who was walkin' down the road
She was struggling with bags from Tesco
There were people from the city havinlunch in the park
I believe that it's called AL fresco
Then a kid came along to offer a hand
But before she had time to accept it
Hits her over the head, doesn't care if she's dead
'Cause he's got all her jewellery and wallet

You might laugh you might frown
Walkin' round London town

Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see its all lies

Life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life,
yeah that's city life
Life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life,
yeah that's city life

Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see its all lies

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see its all lies
