Carlson was born in Skælskør, Denmark. She spent several years in Africa as a child before returning to her native country.
Her single “Another Day” also managed to peak at number-three in Italy as well.
“Saturday Night” went straight to number one in the UK Singles Chart – dethroning Wet Wet Wet’s 15-week chart-topper “Love Is All Around”, despite that single increasing its sales from 65,000 the previous week to 104,000. As of October 2015, it has sold a total of 1.18 million copies in the UK.
The singles “Another Day” and “Think of You” also charted in a number of other markets, entering the top ten in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, and her native Denmark.
She competed in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2018 with the song “Boys on Girls” but didn’t qualify for the superfinal.
