English singer-songwriter Lily Allen has released three studio albums, two extended plays, twenty singles (including six as a featured artist), three promotional singles and twenty music videos. Allen's range of musical genres incorporates styles such as pop, ska, electropop and R&B.[1] She became well known through her Myspace account, on which she started posting demo songs in 2005.[2] The increase of popularity led to a contract with Regal Recordings.[2] Her debut single, "Smile", was released in 2006 and topped the UK Singles Chart for two weeks.[3] Allen's first studio album, Alright, Still (2006), was released shortly after. The album was commercially successful, earning a three times platinum certification in the United Kingdom,[4] and gold in the United States.[5] The album was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 50th Grammy Awards.[6] Follow-up singles "LDN", "Littlest Things" and "Alfie" did not repeat her early success, although they still sold well; "LDN" peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart.

Released in 2009, Allen's second major release, It's Not Me, It's You, saw a genre shift for her, having more of an electropop feel, rather than the ska and reggae influences of the first one. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, the Australian Albums Chart and the Canadian Albums Chart.[7] The first single from it, "The Fear", also debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, where it remained for four consecutive weeks.[8] Other singles include "Not Fair", another top ten single in the UK, "Fuck You", which became her third chart entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at sixty-eight,[9] "22" and her more recent "Who'd Have Known". Allen's first extended play, F.U.E.P., was released on iTunes in March 2009 and her second, Paris Live Session, in November of the same year.
