I would like to just note a time-when-I-discovered-them-progression of my favorite women in music that happen to be British.
Ms Dynamite – R&B signer, favorite song “DY-NA-MI-TEE”
Lady Sovereign – Grime rapper, favorite song “Random 2”
Lily Allen – favorite song “LDN”
Amy Winehouse – favorite song “Tears Dry on Their Own”
Kate Nash – sounds an awful lot like Lily Allen*, favorite song “Foundations”
Adele – sounds an awful lot like Amy Winehouse*, favorite song “My Same”
