Björk Guðmundsdóttir, known professionally as Björk, is an Icelandic singer, songwriter, composer and record producer. Her eclectic musical style has earned her global acclaim in multiple genres, including in alternative rockEDM, Jazz and Avant-Garde.

She first became widely known as the lead singer of The Sugarcubes from 1986-1992 before gaining further fame as a solo artist. While three of Björk's 1990s singles charted in the UK Top 10 ("It's Oh So Quiet" reached number 4, "Army of Me" number 10, and "Hyperballad" number 8), her success with singles in the US has been more limited. Her albums typically see strong sales globally, with estimates of between 20-40 million albums sold worldwide. She has won four BRIT Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, one MOJO Award, three UK Music Video Awards, and, in 2010, the Polar Music Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in recognition of her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice."

Björk has been nominated for 15 Grammy Awards (plus two for art direction on her album sleeves, done by others), one Academy Award, and two Golden Globe Awards. She also won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival for her performance in Dancer in the Dark. She was ranked twenty-ninth in VH1's "The 100 Greatest Women in Music", eighth in MTV's "22 Greatest Voices in Music", and sixtieth in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Singers of All Time".
