Remember Lolly? The pint-sized popstar with hits such as ‘Viva La Radio’, ‘Hey Mickey’, and ‘Per Sempre Amore (Forever in Love)’?
Well, it’s been (dare we say it) almost twenty years since Lolly was first launched onto the music scene and now fans can celebrate in true style with the release of her two studio albums onto digital and streaming services thanks to a campaign with the singer herself and Pop Activism.
We caught up with Lolly to find out just what it meant to release her albums on digital platforms for the first time, and she said:
I’m overwhelmed by the love and support from all my fans that without them demanding for my music to be out there on digital, none of this would have happened! So thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Now let’s party! I love it, I love it!
Lolly, also known to those closest to her as Anna Kumblé, hasn’t last released music since 2000 but it seems like fans on social media have been excitedly awaiting the release of her hits and have already been putting her music on heavy rotation.
