Thus far, she has garnered a GRAMMY® Award and achieved seven multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence, she starred on FOX’s hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons. Following 2018 anthems “No Excuses” and “Let You Be Right,” she celebrated Valentine’s Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song Love Train EP and to kick off the summer, she collaborated with dance music titan, Kaskade, for their song “With You,” paving the way for more surprises to come.
