Blossoming superstar-in-the-making, Allegra, drops her latest self-empowerment anthem "Used to Miss U" just in time for summer.
Allegra’s newest track, written over the first lockdown, is all about letting go of the past and looking forward to a brighter future. Set over a disco-influenced house beat with an addictive hook, Allegra’s smooth and sassy vocals belt relatable lyrics that bubble with attitude – “Used to Miss U” is sure to become a massive hit amongst Gen Z-ers on TikTok and beyond.
With two singles under her belt, over 1M Spotify streams, 10 million Tik Tok views on her hit “All About Us”, and the ability to hold her own in the charts against industry heavyweights, Allegra’s inevitable rise to stardom has been a long time coming. Honing her talent from a young age and writing songs throughout her childhood, Allegra, at the age of 15, even caught the attention of Leona Lewis, who, after inviting her on stage, told her she was destined to become ‘a huge star someday’.
Judging by her collaborator on “Used to Miss U”, mainstream star and dance legend R3HAB, and the calibre of those he has worked with in the past – Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna, just to name a few – it looks as though Leona Lewis will surely be proven right. Perhaps this gives you a taste of where Allegra is heading.
