Moment of Arrival Her folk-tronica debut, No Angel, made little impact upon its June 1999 release. But when Eminem sampled her melancholy ”Thank You” on his latest album, Dido’s career took off.
When She Knew It Was A Hit ”After the video (for ”Here With Me”) started being played on VH1, this girl came up to me and said, ‘Are you Dido?’ I was, like, gobsmacked that anyone could possibly know who the f— I was. That was definitely a sort of seminal moment.”
What Fame Has Brought A spot in the new video for ”Stan,” Eminem’s latest single.
What’s Next ”I’m touring all over the world until next summer. Then I’m going to record the second album.”
Will Eminem Be Involved? ”Yeah, he could sing a ballad,” she jokes. ”Maybe I’ll suggest it to him.”
