Early life and Personal life
Foster grew up with a family of singers and musicians, her father was in a fairly well known 80's funk band who often rehearsed at home, she regularly fell asleep to the sound of live Trumpets and Saxophones practising away in the very next room, that's when she decided to focus on her own music career.
She studied at the BRIT School.

The single was released 15 August 2010, battling Flo Rida and David Guetta's "Club Can't Handle Me" and Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie".
