Cappuccini made her acting debut at age 7 in 1995 in the British television show, New Voices and at the age of fourteen she moved to London to pursue a career as an actress. The teenager managed to get herself had a regular role as Sima between 2002-04 in the sitcom All About Me and also played Amy Franks in the BBC's long-running radio drama The Archers. Having started to write songs during this period, she signed to the UK record company "Adventures in Music", and released her debut single "Don't Play Nice" under the name of Verbalicious in March 2005. The song charted at #11 in the UK singles chart but her record label later filed for bankruptcy and little was heard from her for a few years.

Her debut studio album, Perfectionist was released in German-speaking Europe on April 1, 2011, and in the United Kingdom on July 18.
  • Redfu discussed the song with Digital Spy: "It's the ultimate party song. It's going to change the way that people view champagne. At the moment it's quite a dignified drink, but we want people to start spraying bottles of the stuff. It's not even about the alcohol, it's about the physical act of spraying it."
