FEW female singers defined the early 1990s quite like pop-rap sensation Betty Boo.
The star’s iconic track Doin’ The Do was a Top 10 hit not just in the UK but around the world – with Boomania, the debut album she produced in her bedroom, going platinum.
The 52-year-old star, whose real name is Alison Moira Clarkson, is still making music.
And while she’s a little less recognizable now — especially with glasses — she’s stuck with the iconic hairstyle.
Betty Boo may not be as famous as it was back in the ’90s, but it’s still at the heart of some of the world’s biggest pop tracks.
She helped create the Hear’Say classic Pure & Simple, which she once called her favorite karaoke track “because I wrote it, so I know it really well”.
Betty, known as Alison, has also written tracks for everyone from Girls Aloud and Dannii Minogue to pre-school act The Tweenies.
Their first album in three decades, Boomerang, was released in October this year and received critical acclaim from pop fans.
It was described by Classic Pop Magazine as a collection of “bangers as gloriously floor-filling as anything in their hip-hop heyday”.
She recently wrote to fans on Instagram: “A quick message to say thank you! 🙌💗 It’s such a dream for me to know that you guys love the album and I’m sorry it took so long! 😘💕.”
