Britain has a highly successful export sector these days and, yes, it’s pop. Our UK friends know a little something about this of course. Of late, it’s been a long line of exceptional female singers: Adele, Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Joss Stone, Emil Sande, Lily Allen among many others and now comes Lianne La Havas, who is already getting big-time critical praise for her new album Is Your Love Big Enough?.  Today is her 23rd b-day and to celebrate she just premiered the video for new single “Forget”. As ever, British pop reigns supreme.
