One of the jewels in Britain's modern-day pop crown, Anne-Marie has been keeping busy since 2018's Speak Your Mind by collaborating with artists like Lauv and Rudimental. Her newest record is packed to the brim with famous faces on vocals, songwriting and production, but her relatable, unpretentious, sometimes playful delivery holds disparate sounds and moods together with ease. Kiss My (Uh Oh) with Little Mix is currently racking up spins on BBC Radio 1, a summery Lumidee-referencing number that delivers attitude in spades ("the only time I’m in your head / is when you’re alone up in your bed"), and the UK garage homage of Don't Play was already a big hit earlier in the year, a duet with KSI which matches and surpasses AJ Tracey and Mabel's similar linkup West Ten.
Anne-Marie's undoubted pop success - colossal singles as a solo artist, continually in-demand as a featured singer - is undeniable. Yet there's always been a sense that she hasn't quite bound these elements together into one place; 2018's debut album 'Speak Your Mind' featured some fireworks, but also felt inconsistent. New album 'Therapy' pushes her story to its next chapter, and while it features some surging highs, it doesn't quite dispel notions that Anne-Marie has yet to nail down a singular sound she can call her own.
