When Annie met Richard

Why oh why isn't Norwegian singer Annie one of the most successful singers of this generation? Cult status is one thing but she deserves to be more well known. Maybe her new single "I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me" will change all that. I think Annie is like Robyn's little cousin as her lyrics are just as cheeky and for all the bubble gum sound of her music the production work and structure of the songs is always immaculate. "I Know Your Girlfriend Hates Me" is released next Monday in the UK and hopefully will be top ten bound. It is produced by Richard X who produced Annie's most well known singles "Chewing Gum" and "Me Plus One" and he has done great production work in the past for Liberty X, Sugababes and Kelis. Annie says that she had been listening to a lot of Prince when she wrote the song, especially the song "Kiss", the lyrics are loosely based on something that happened to one of her friends and also to herself. Here's the single cover for "I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me" or otherwise simply known as, in the days of the download; a nice picture. The single is taken from her new album "Don't Stop" which also features production work from Xenomania. There are more details on "Don't Stop" here.Annie's website can be found here and has been recently updated. If you want to sign your life away on the mailing list there is also a free remix. The video for "I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me" is below and I love it.
