She rose to fame after winning the fifth season of the Italian talent show X Factor. Her first single, "Distratto", debuted atop the Italian FIMI Top Digital Downloads chart and was certified double platinum by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry. Michielin's debut studio album, Riflessi di me, was released in October 2012, preceded by the single "Sola".
During the following years, she released the albums di20 (2015) and 2640 (2018), both certified gold by the Federation of the Italian Music Industry, and several hit singles, including "L'amore esiste" (2015), "Nessun grado di separazione" (2016), "Vulcano" (2018), "Io non abito al mare" (2018) and "Cheyenne" (2019).
She recorded three commercially successful singles with Italian rapper Fedez—"Cigno nero" (2013), "Magnifico" (2014) and "Chiamami per nome" (2021)—and she released collaborations with several artists spanning different genres, including rappers Fabri Fibra and Don Joe, indie pop acts Giorgio Poi, Coma Cose, Vasco Brondi and Carl Brave, rock brand Måneskin, and pop singers Elisa and Max Gazzè. Her fourth studio album, Feat (stato di natura), was conceived as a collection of previously unreleased collaborations.
