Sabrina Carpenter

Actress, recording artist, and songwriter Sabrina Carpenter emerged in 2014 as the star of the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World and has since embarked on a successful pop career, releasing albums including 2016's Top 30-charting EVOLution. In the meantime, she continued to act, appearing in movies such as 2019's Tall Girl and the next year's Clouds. After signing with Island Records, Carpenter issued her fifth LP, 2022's emails i can't send, which became her highest-charting album yet. It reached 23 on the Billboard 200 and was followed by the 2023 holiday EP Fruitcake. The following year she landed a global hit with the single "Espresso."

Born Sabrina Annlyne Carpenter in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, on May 11, 1999, she became interested in performing at a young age. By age ten, she was going to auditions with her parents and won her first part playing a guest role on the hit NBC drama Law & Order: SVU. Two years later, she was cast as the best friend of Rowan Blanchard on the Disney Channel's coming-of-age sitcom Girl Meets World, the sequel to the immensely popular '90s sitcom Boy Meets World. Carpenter inked a deal with Hollywood Records and issued the single "Can't Blame a Girl for Trying" in March 2014, which was followed by her debut EP of the same name a month later. In 2015, she delivered her full-length debut, Eyes Wide Open. It peaked at number 43 on the Billboard 200. She returned the following year with her sophomore album, EVOLution, and embarked on a sold-out headlining tour. Next up was a starring role in the Disney Channel's version of Adventures in Babysitting, a few months before EVOLution peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200.

In 2017, Carpenter teamed up with social media star Jasmine Thompson for a soulful cover of Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times." That same year, she worked with the Vamps and Mike Perry on the track "Hands," released the solo single "Why," headlined her own The De-Tour concert tour, and was featured on Lost Kings' "First Love." The latter landed in the Top 30 of Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. "Alien," Carpenter's first release of 2018, was a collaboration with British producer and DJ Jonas Blue that climbed to number 12 on the same chart. It was followed by an appearance in the film The Hate U Give, based on the Angie Thomas young adult novel. That November, Carpenter issued her third solo long-player, Singular: Act I. A companion piece, Act II, arrived in 2019, as did "On My Way," a collaboration with Alan Walker and Farruko that cracked the Top Ten of the dance/electronic chart. Before the end of 2019, Carpenter also appeared in the Netflix original film Tall Girl.

In 2020, the singer issued the Valentine's Day single "Honeymoon Fades" just before making her Broadway debut as Cady Heron in the musical Mean Girls. Her run only lasted a couple days, though, as theaters closed their doors on March 12 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. (The production officially closed during the shutdown.) Later in the year, however, Carpenter could be seen in the Netflix musical film Work It and in the Disney+ musical film Clouds, which she starred in alongside Fin Argus.

Meanwhile, she headed to the studio with Captain Cuts' Ryan McMahon, returning with the single "Skin" in January 2021. It marked her debut for Island Records. Another track, "Skinny Dipping," arrived that September as the first single off her fifth studio album, emails i can't send. Released in July 2022, the record peaked at number 23 on the Billboard 200 and spawned several more popular singles, including the John Ryan-produced "Fast Times" and the Jason Evigan-produced "Vicious." A cover of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" arrived in October 2023. A month later, Carpenter delivered the holiday-themed EP Fruitcake, which featured originals including the single "A Nonsense Christmas," as well as a pop-infused rendition of the Irving Berlin classic "White Christmas." Released in April 2024, her single "Espresso" became a global smash, topping several charts around the world and making the Top Five in the U.S. She followed it a couple months later with "Please Please Please." ~ James Christopher Monger & Marcy Donelson
