Since Spotify launched in 2012, an Irish female artist has never reached the top spot on the chart.
Currently sitting at No.2 in the Irish Singles Charts, DJ Jazzy's debut solo single 'Giving Me' has made the Dubliner the first Irish female artist to hit No.1 on the Spotify Ireland Top 50.
Achieving this incredible milestone, Jazzy knocked Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s 'Miracle' off the top spot this week. Thumping dance banger 'Giving Me' was released in March and has already been streamed 1.7 million times in Ireland and been certified platinum.
Arriving on the solo stage with a bold statement, the Irish-Jamaican newcomer Jazzy’s debut is soaring in the Irish and International Charts, with Jazzy earning the No.1 spot on the Homegrown Irish charts.
'Giving Me' is a club-ready slice of Irish house with lyrics that see Jazzy relinquishing the responsibility for the hurt experienced from a past relationship and getting back out on the town after having healed from all “the sunshine in the rain”.
On writing the track, Jazzy shares “my solo debut has been a really long time coming, so we made sure that we edited and tweaked the track until it felt perfect. I’ve been anticipating this moment for some time now and am buzzing to share 'Giving Me' with you all”.
Jazzy is no stranger to the dance music scene, having already graced massive collaborations with the likes of Irish dance duo Belters Only on their hit singles ‘Make Me Feel Good’ and ‘Don’t Stop Just Yet’. Her entrance into the music world has turned heads and connected internationally.
With over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, as well as a Top 5 Platinum certified single in the UK, it looks as though this will be the year that see’s Jazzy bring Irish house music to the masses. Having already built a community around her sound through consistent releases of her ‘GEWAH’ DJ mixes on Soundcloud, the release of ‘Giving Me’ see’s Jazzy entering a new sonic chapter; one that will see her create a musical legacy of her own.
