Kerli Kõiv is an Estonian Pop singer-songwriter who records under her first name, Kerli. In 2004, she was the runner-up in a televised competition that determined the song to represent Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest. Kerli continued to perform and write songs, and after scoring an audition with L.A. Reid, she signed to Island Def Jam Music Group in 2006. Her debut album, Love Is Dead peaked at #126 on the Billboard 200 in the summer of 2008.
In 2010 Kerli recorded this tune, which she co-wrote with Brian Ziff for Almost Alice, a collection of songs inspired by the Tim Burton directed Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. The track was released as the third single from the album and Kerli also contributed to another song on the record, collaborating with German band Tokio Hotel on "Strange."
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
