Inspired by Lily Allen

Sweet and vicious in equal measure, Lily Allen's early demos and debut LP, Alright, Still, set the stage for modern pop's most celebrated Trojan horses. M.I.A.'s weaponized mash-up pop channels Allen's aptitude for barbed-wire lyricism, and in Charli XCX's party-till-your-eyes-bleed excess you'll hear Allen's gift for loaded, soaring hooks.
