Freedom, which has already gone silver, has received positive reviews from critics, praising her vocals and movement away from her soul-influenced debut album, Heaven, into a more R&B, club-orientated sound.

Heaven, released in November 2011, was certified platinum in the UK, Ireland and US.

She released five singles from the album including UK Top 10 hit Nothing’s Real But Love, and also toured the record in 2012.

She cites Aretha Franklin, Kings of Leon, Christina Aguilera and Amy Winehouse among her influences.

In 2012, she was nominated for two MOBO Awards and one MTV Europe Music Award.
