Lily Allen Calls John Holt a Friend of Mine

In 2006, a lovely young lady from west London dropped an album that took the world by storm. That young lady was Lily Allen and that album was Alright, Still.

The album was co-written by a long list of great producers and song writers, including Marc Ronson and Jonny Bull. The use of samples leans heavily into reggae on this album, Dawn Penn, Tommy McCook and John Holt to name a few. I particularly love the way she uses this John Holt song...
