Anne Marie has won fans all over the world with her powerful voice and charismatic personality. It was in 2003 that she came to the spotlight following the release of her demo, ‘Summer Girl’. The singer has gone ahead to release many hit singles that have topped music charts across the globe. Releasing her first studio album in 2018, Annie transitioned into a hitmaker as the album peaked at No. 3 on the UK Album Chart and Scottish Album Chart with multiple top ten charting singles.
Having endeared herself to many with her catchy songs that explored both the good and bad sides of love, the English crooner has piqued people’s interest in her love life with many wondering if she’s into males or ladies.
Annie Marie Believes Love Is Gender-Free
Anne Marie Rose Nicholson fervently believes in love, this does not come as a surprise as her parents have been together since they were 14.
For the singer, gender does not determine who she loves. She revealed in a 2018 interview with Line of Best Fit that she is attracted to both men and women, stressing that she gets attracted to whomever she likes irrespective of the gender.
That sentiment was expressed in her single, ‘Perfect’. It has a line that says: “…And I’ll love who I want to love, ’cause this love is gender-free.”
Despite admitting she’s open to dating both male and female, the music sensation wouldn’t describe herself as bisexual because she believes every human can be attracted to both men and women.
The Gifted Music Artist Is Seemingly Single
Anne Marie has successfully kept her dating life under wraps. Surprisingly, she has not been linked to any romantic partner in recent years despite constantly being in the spotlight.
As a result, she is believed to be single at the moment. Giving a hint on how she would like to meet a potential partner, the ‘Alarm’ singer cited that she prefers face to face meeting to actually know if there’s a connection rather than online dating.
But She Once Dated a Popular Musician
The ‘Rockabye’ crooner has been quite private about her love life and is not one to name names. She had previously disclosed in 2016 that she had a boyfriend and that he was into music as well. The singer claimed she couldn’t name him as he was well-known.
Also, she revealed that they had been in the relationship for two years and he inspired her single ‘Do It Right’, which was released in 2015. However, it is most likely that the relationship is over as Annie referenced a cheating ex in her 2017 single, ‘Ciao Adios’.
Annie Rose to Prominence Working With Several Bands
At the age of 17, Anne Marie commenced musical theatre studies at college and also sang in talent shows. She eventually landed a studio session at Elton John’s Rocket Studios and was impressive enough to land a record deal with John’s management company.
Anne Marie immediately got to work and dropped her first demo, ‘Summer Girl’, in 2013. The electro-pop effort garnered some positive reviews but disclosed that she still had work to do. She thus spent the next two years working with other musicians and bands like Gorgon City, Magnetic Man, and Rudimental.
In 2014, she was featured by Gorgon City in his singles, ‘Elevate’ and ‘Try Me Out’. After collaborating with Magnetic Man for the song ‘Is It Love’, Annie caught the interest of Rudimental as the group asked her to replace one of their singers. In the next year, she worked on four singles from their album, ‘We the Generation’. They include ‘Rumor Mill’ which peaked at No. 67 on the UK Singles Chart and was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI); ‘Love Ain’t Just a Word’, ‘Foreign World’, and ‘All That Love’.
The Essex native eventually dropped her debut Extended Play, ‘Karate’, in June 2015. She followed it up with hit songs such as ‘Do It Right’ and ‘Alarm’.The latter clinched the No. 16 spot on UK Singles Chart and was certified platinum by BPI and Gold by the Recording Industry of America Association (RIAA).
‘Speak Your Mind’ Took Her Career to The Next Level
Anne Marie rose to international stardom after being featured in Clean Bandit’s song, ‘Rockabye’, alongside the legendary Sean Paul. ‘Rockabye’ topped the charts in many countries such as UK, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Sweden. It also broke into the top ten in the US Billboard 200. The song attained triple platinum certification from BPI and platinum from RIAA.
Later in 2018, Marie became a music star following the release of her debut studio album, ‘Speak Your Mind’, which has since gained platinum certification in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. It spawned hits such as ‘Ciao Adios’, ‘Perfect to me’, ‘Bad Girlfriend’, and ‘Machine’. Ciao Adios peaked at No. 9 on the UK Singles Chart and was certified platinum by BPI while her collaboration with Marshmello, ‘Friends’, clinched the No. 4 spot on UK Singles Chart and No. 11 on US Billboard 200. The single was certified double platinum by BPI and RIAA.
She recently dropped several singles including ‘Birthday’, ‘Her’, and ‘To be Young’ feat Doja Cat from her upcoming studio album.
