Vinyl LP Record [2LP]
The self-proclaimed 'biggest midget in the game' has gone from the bloggers champ to magazine-cover-vamp on both sides of the pond, having graced the covers of URB, The Fader, and i-D to name a few. The plus-sized hype surrounding this pint-sized 20-year-old hailing from Wembley, England is the subject of her new single, "Love Me Or Hate Me". All punk and grime snot-nosed British attitude over an undeniable 808-fueled electro-pop-n-lock beat courtesy of NYC producer Dr. Luke. For Lady Sovereign, it was a quick leap from bloggers' pet to critic's darling. The press has been voracious, heaping praise on Lady Sov to the tune of "The Queen of U.K. Grime," to "Hip Hop's great white hope," even likening her to a female Eminem. She's already completed a round of successful U.S performances including the Coachella and Intonation festivals as well as a national tour with The Streets. Additional performances included NYC's Central Park Summerstage (Headlined), Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot festival. The double LP version Lady Sovereign's long-awaited U.S. debut album, "Public Warning", is now set for a December 2006 release.
