Amassing over 3 million Spotify streams with just three released singles and quickly racking in 10 million TikTok views, UK-based pop artist Allegra is blossoming into a superstar-in-the-making.
A musician since childhood, Allegra was classically trained in choir and violin but secretly dreamed of growing up to be a pop star. “I was always in my room, listening to Rihanna and Beyoncé and just signing to my mirror,” she tells Rollacoaster. Signed at 14, she spent a good chunk of her teen years honing her sound and training her voice. Now, at 19, she’s tackling the mainstream.
Her debut single “All About Us” was a sleeper hit, hitting #7 on Billboard’s Dance Chart with #1 positions on iTunes Italy, Canada, and #2 in Music Week’s Top 100 Club Chart. Produced by Audiofreak’s Scott Stodart (DASCO, Namie Amuro, Monsta X), the single propelled Allegra into the UK’s mainstream earning plaudits from DJ Times who called the song “bold and dynamic that highlights the modernity of this young artist.”
In 2020 Allegra released her second single with “Do What I Want” an unequivocal hit that landing her the cover of Rollacoaster’s Autumn/Winter issue, as well as coverage in Wonderland and Spindle Magazines. Produced again by Scott Stoddart and mixed/mastered by Grammy Award winning engineer Wez Clarke, the single is an irresistibly catchy and impassioned statement of defiance, from a young woman forging her own path in the cutthroat music industry.
Allegra made her return with her third single, the self-empowerment anthem “Used to Miss You”. Picking up early support with premieres on Wonderland and Noctis, the single was backed by an official remix and collaboration with one of the hottest names in dance and pop music, R3HAB.
Currently ranked at #12 on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs, R3HAB is one of the most renowned producers today, previously collaborating and remixing a wide variety of mega stars in music including Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, 5 Seconds of Summer, Katy Perry, Steve Aoki, The Chainsmokers and many more.
Her collaboration with R3HAB highlight’s Allegra’s potential to win over tastemakers and music makers alike, with big things coming her way as she enters the next stage of her career. Look for more chart-topping singles from the young pop singer next year, as she continues to prove why she’s an artist to watch in the UK and worldwide.
