Anne-Marie: I’ve always loved the idea of revenge


That was the dilemma facing Anne-Marie as she wrapped up her 2019 world tour. By that point Rockabye, her number one collaboration with Clean Bandit and Sean Paul, was three years old, and the star had sung it more than 250 times.

“I literally got to a point in my live show where I asked everyone ‘Do I have to do Rockabye, or can I just miss this one out tonight?’,” she says. “And they’d all still want it.”

It’s not that she’s not proud of Rockabye, which was one of the best-selling songs of the 2010s, it’s just that she’s got plenty more where that came from: hits like Friends, 2002, Ciao Adios, Alarm and Our Song, her new duet with Niall Horan.

One of the UK’s most effervescent pop stars, Anne-Marie Rose Nicholson is also a nine-time Brit Award nominee, a world karate champion, a judge on The Voice, and one of the most seat-of-their-pants contestants to have appeared on The Great British Bake Off.
