First Single

Caro Emerald started to get known after her debut single Back it up. The single was initially written for a Japanese pop-act, by two Dutch producers and the songwriter Vince Degiorgio (o.a. NSYNC, Atomic Kitten, Aloha from Hell). Van der Leeuw was approached to sing a demo of the song and she added the song to her repertoire. Until 2008, when Caro sang it live on the local Amsterdam TV, AT5, the song was unknown to the general public.

Back It Up was officially released by Grandmono Records on 6 July 2009. It was listed in the Dutch Top 40 for 12 weeks and reached the 12th position in the charts. Kraak & Smaak have released a remix version of the song. Her song A Night like This was chosen for an ad campaign by Martini.

Her album "Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor" will be released 29 January 2010.
