She has been around since the 80s as the lead singer of her eponymous band, and is a hugely successful solo artist until today. She constantly reinvents herself, and writes her own songs. Musically, she is something like the German Madonna, just less of a diva. "99 Luftballons" may be her most well known song, but it is certainly not her best.

The entire album "Nena" is full of catchy 80's pop songs, most of which were hits, but but actually, most of the albums that followed this debut album are more innovative.
I really like her "Nena feat. Nena" album, on which she completely reworks her older music. - Martin_Canine
