Easton's 1980 debut singles, "Modern Girl" and "9 to 5"," entered into the UK top ten, making her the first UK female artist to appear twice in the same top ten. In 1981, "9 to 5", topped the US Hot 100, making her the third UK female solo artist to achieve this, following Petula Clark and Lulu. In the US, the song was released as "Morning Train (9 to 5)".
A six-time Grammy nominee in the US, Easton is a two-time Grammy Award winner, winning Best New Artist in 1981 and Best Mexican-American Performance in 1985, for her duet with Luis Miguel on the song "Me Gustas Tal Como Eres".
