Ingrid Alberini (born 11 September 1978 in Guastalla) is an Italian dancer and singer-songwriter. She is best known for her 2003 international club smash "Tu es foutu", also known as "You Promised Me". The song was a big hit in Europe, Russia, Australia, Latin America and in the United States, where it reached #4 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2004. In-Grid (whose parents named her after Ingrid Bergman) began singing in her native Northern Italy. In 1994 she won the regional competition The Voice of San Remo. In 2002, record producers Larry Pignagnoli and Marco Soncini invited her to sing on a couple of ideas they were working on in the studio. She laid down the vocals of "Tu es foutu" in one go. The track reached number 16 in her native Italy and made the Top 10 in no less than 8 countries, including Germany, where it spent 39 weeks in sales chart. The second single, "In-Tango", entered the sales charts in Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands. In-Grid's debut album Rendez-Vous made a modest performance in Sweden and German speaking countries. Her third single became "Shock", while "I'm folle de toi" received a massive airplay in Poland.
