Since then, she's been working on her fourth album.

A large part of her popularity comes from the presence of "Let Go", FrouFrou's SignatureSong, in the movie ''Garden State'', and the use of "Hide and Seek"- first in the season 2 finale of ''TheOC'', then in the 'Dear Sister' skit on SaturdayNightLive, and finally in Jason Derulo's song 'Whatcha Say'. Unfortunately, the latter has led to many people only knowing her for "Hide and Seek". Given her worldwide popularity, this is sure to change.

* {{Hypocrite}}: "Aha!"'s first two verses- one is about a man who, while saying he couldn't eat wheat, or meat, or dairy (because of his own choices, not because of allergies), later ate a chocolate biscuit containing wheat and dairy, knowing its contents. Imogen wasn't amused (especially since she'd just taken a huge amount of care to make him a dinner he could eat). The second verse is about one of her neighbours, who, despite being an environmental activist, wanted to cut down a tree so he could see his car. Imogen really wasn't amused. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick The third verse is about a murderer.]]
