“Quite simply, I love music,” reads the bio for Allegra’s YouTube channel. This has been evidenced time and again through her brave choices of cover songs, all of which betray not only a quiet and well-placed confidence in her own talents, but also an ambition and determination to match.
Following her collaborative cover of Selena Gomez’s number one smash hit, ‘Lose You to Love Me’ with Kurt Hugo Schneider and Sam Tsui, Allegra’s next move to cover Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Someone You Loved’ is another excellent choice for this superstar on the rise. Never one to be intimidated by having big boots to fill, Allegra took to the Scottish singer-songwriter’s worldwide number one track with an ease and self-conviction, commanding the space around her in the impeccably-produced music video.
This cover follows in the footsteps of Loud Luxury’s ‘Body’, and shows off a softer, more acoustic side of Allegra – the likes of which we have yet to see. The ‘All About Us’ star takes us through the stages of heartbreak and romance in this gorgeous cover, with her vocals taking their rightful place at centre stage.
This cover rounds off a cracking year in style. 2019 has seen Allegra’s debut single ‘All About Us’ climb up multiple Billboard and iTunes charts, reaching #1 in Italy. It’s a fresh song which works perfectly with the carefree youthfulness Allegra exudes, a slice of dance-pop perfection which sees Allegra setting aside trivialities to prioritise what’s important in life – love.
With this unprecedented success under her belt, and a steady stream of covers keeping us ticking over and keeping Allegra’s vocal chords well-oiled, here’s to 2020 being the year of more stunning original tracks from Allegra.
