Earlier this year, Giggs paired with Lily Allen to release the confessional “Trigger Bang”, thus receiving a public show of validation from UK rap’s most influential and relevant voice. Representative of the mature and honest mood on her fourth, 14-track album, No Shame is undeniably compelling. Brutally honest and transparent, the laid bare approach Lily takes with this LP awakens deep and heartfelt compassion for the reformed wild-child. Where once stood a defiant and provocative girl, now bows down a more humble and experienced mother of two. Lily has unashamedly guided her millennial contemporaries through the Brit-pop year, speaking freely about her love of class A’s and casual sex. Always repping reality as opposed to airbrushed, censored pop-packaged perfection, Lily Allen’s aesthetic remains as candid as ever, only now she’s more aware of herself and in control of her decisions—both in music and in life. —Milly McMahon
