∙ The 2015 hit single “Lost on You” sparked LP’s international success, topping the charts in Italy, France, and Switzerland, while earning Platinum certification in four countries.
∙ “Muddy Waters” was her first single to crack Billboard’s Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, after it was spotlighted on the 2016 season finale of the series Orange Is the New Black.
