Having worked with some of the most exciting names in pop – from Wayne Hector to Two Inch Punch to Steve Mac to Fraser T Smith to Jean Baptiste to Rudimental – Anne-Marie's debut album is already shaping up to be one of next year's best. It's rare in pop to find a proper character who knows exactly what they want, who they want to be and will work to achieve it. Anne-Marie is that pop star. “I see myself on some multiple album vibe,” she cackles when asked where she'd like to be in five years' time. “No, hopefully travelling around the whole world singing. I want a few number ones in there too.” That smile appears again. “I just want everyone to know the songs and love them.” That shouldn't be a problem.
