Lily Allen Career
Her musical career began in 2005 when she posted some of her vocal recordings online. The exposure led to BBC Radio 1 playback and a recording deal with Regal Recordings.
In July 2006, “Smile,” her debut single for a mass audience, peaked at the top of the UK Singles Chart. With sales of more than 2.6 million copies worldwide and nominations for the Grammy Awards, the Brit Awards, and the MTV Video Music Awards, Allen’s debut album, Alright, Still, was warmly appreciated.
Allen made her television debut at the age of three in the episode “The Yob” of The Comic Strip Presents, which her father co-wrote. Her father left the family when she was four years old. Allen spent her early years with her family on a council estate.

The popular singles “The Fear,” “Not Fair,” and “Fuck You” came from it. She won the Brit Award for British Female Solo Artist at the 2010 Brit Awards as a result of her accomplishment.
