As she accumulated tens of thousands of My Space friends, The Observer Music Monthly (OMM), a magazine published in The Observer, took interest in March 2006.It spawned the hit singles "The Fear" and "Fuck You".This success saw her receive the Brit Award for British Female Solo Artist at the 2010 Brit Awards.This led to Allen singing "Baby Mine" from Disney's Dumbo at a school concert.Allen told Loveline that the audience was "brought to tears at the sight of a troubled young girl doing something good".Her second studio album, It's Not Me, It's You, saw a genre shift, having more of an electropop feel, rather than the ska and reggae influences of the first one.

The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and the Australian ARIA Charts and was well received by critics, noting the singer's musical evolution and maturity.

Her debut record, Alright, Still, was well received, selling over 2.6 million copies worldwide and brought Allen a nomination at the Grammy Awards, the Brit Awards, and the MTV Video Music Awards.

She began hosting her own talk show, Lily Allen and Friends, on BBC Three.

Allen also played violin, guitar and trumpet and was a member of a chamber choir. She appeared as a lady-in-waiting in the 1998 film Elizabeth, which was co-produced by her mother.

That same year, Allen appeared in the music video to the Fat Les song "Vindaloo".

Allen eventually returned to Greg Kurstin who had written three songs for Alright, Still.
