Hot New Album - Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You

On February 10th, 2009, the spunky little Brit named Lily Allen released her sophomore album It's Not Me, It's You. Allen, who is the British equivalent to America's Britney Spears, has been eating up the tabloids and saying what most kids in the early twenties do, except cameras follow her every move. From smoking pot to having sex, Allen never leaves the media searching for a quote. On top of that, several pictures of Lily drunk off her ass coming out of award ceremonies or local pubs litter the spreads of magazines. She sure is a wild child.

Luckily for Allen though, her music makes up for her "immature" behavior.

I first heard about Allen a few years back when her first album Alright, Still hit MySpace. Songs like "Smile" and "LDN" were very popular making her an overnight success on both sides of the pond. This Capitol Records artist sold over 3,300,000 copies worldwide. Not too shabby, but hard to follow up.

But so far so good. It's Not You, It's Me begins right where Alright, Still ended and takes it to the next level. "We decided to try and make bigger sounding, more ethereal songs, real songs," says Lily. Songs like "The Fear", "Everyone's At It" and "Fuck You" are the most catchy of the bunch and will help Lily sell millions again.

So go purchase this album!
