This title refers to at least four recording artists:
1) Sophie Xeon, mononymously known by her stage name SOPHIE, is a Los Angeles-based electronic music producer. She came to prominence in 2013 with her single "Bipp"/"Elle" and released "Lemonade"/"Hard" the following year. She has worked closely with artists from the PC Music label and produced for acts including Charli XCX, Liz, Le1f, QT, Madonna, Namie Amuro and Vince Staples. Sophie's music has been described as a "hyperkinetic" take on pop music and typically features high-pitched female vocals and an attention to synthesized electronic textures. Her debut compilation album Product was released in 2015. Her debut studio album Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides was released on June 15th, 2018.
2) Elena Ferretti stands behind the alias Sophie, an Italo-Disco/Eurobeat project set in the late 80's and early 90's. Sophie released several albums such as My World, Tales To Tell, or My Name Is… Sophie.
3) Sophie (real name Arlette Hecket, born 9 October, 1944) was a girlfriend of one of the members of the group Les Champions, Sophie and sang with them in December 1962 in Olympia under the name Jenny Hahn. Olympia director Bruno Coquatrix was impressed, and presented her to Johnny Stark. She signed a contract with Decca and released her first disc Quand un air vous possède / Tout ça pour le locomotion followed by a participation in the film Cherchez l'idole. In 1967 she changed her career to a radio DJ and on Télé Assembles-Carlo (tv channel) as a producer. But in 1975 she returned for a period to participate as Monaco's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, finishing 13th (22 points) with 'Une chanson c'est une lettre'.
'L'integrale', a CD compilation of 25 tracks was issued by Magic Records in 1999.
4) Sophie Choudry (born 8 February 1981) is an Indian film actress, singer, former MTV India VJ and occasional model and anchor.
In 2000, she started her career as a pop singer with her all-girl band "Sansara" with a song which Sophie herself wrote ("Yeh Dil Sun Raha Hai"). Very soon the band separated and Choudry started her solo singing career, donning the videos "Habibi" and "Le Le Mera Dil" in 2001
She then moved to Mumbai in 2002, becoming a VJ for MTV India and hosting the popular show MTV Loveline, which eventually gained her popularity. In November 2003, she released her first remix album Sophie & Dr. Love. The album was a chart-topper for six months in India and broke records in the U.K Asian Pop Charts by holding the number 1 spot for 12 weeks. The album contained old classics by Runa Laila, Nazia Hassan and Salma Agha. The video was directed by Rao and Sapru of Kaanta Laga fame and music remixed by Harry Anand.
Less than one year on, Sophie returned with her newest offering Baby Love. According to Sophie, she listened to over 400 songs in order to come up with her perfect 12. Songs on this album include Dil Ke Armaan, Ghar aaya Mera Pardesi, Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Legaya.
In December 2009, she launched her album Sound of Sophie, which had no remixes, but only original numbers. The launch of this album marked her association with the Indian fashion brand MADAME, who sponsored the album and also hired her as their first brand ambassador. She worked with well known music composers such as Rishi Rich, Bappi Lahiri, Biddu and Gaurav Das Gupta in the album.
