In 2015, her rendition of the song "Titanium" by David Guetta and Sia, gained airplay on Virgin Radio in France.[5] This led to a recording contract with PlayOn in France, a label of Warner Music Group.[5] The song charted in France and Belgium as did the follow-up, a cover of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive". In October 2015, Bailey released an album of covers in France, entitled Muse Box, supported by the single "Rude" feat. Flula. A fourth single, a cover of Cher's "Believe" appeared in early 2016.[6]
