Having notched up more than 400 Million streams on Spotify alone, she is quickly becoming one of the UK’s leading female artists. In full lockdown in 2020, Karen recorded a beautiful, sublime, and stripped back, cover version of the Roxette classic “It Must Have Been Love” in her bedroom, with her then-boyfriend (now husband) accompanying her on piano and decided to release it independently on her own label Purple Coco.

Fast forward a year and the track is sitting comfortably in the iTunes Top 40, following a play on the TV show Love Island. It has had a huge response, gaining more than 11,000  Shazam’s from a 30-second clip. As it stands, this looks like being the runaway hit, used in this year’s series.

This gorgeous version of the song actually got a big thumbs up from Per Gessle from Roxette, when it was sent to him to clear the publishing. Guaranteed to give you goose-bumps. Please check out this beautiful rendition.

Listen to this song and more emerging artists just like this one on “Discover”, playing Sundays at 1.30 pm PT/4.30 pm ET on Channel R – Today’s Hits & Your All-Time Favorites.
