Who would have thought that Love Island could be a stepping stone for upcoming musicians?
The popular dating show featured RuthAnne's song 'The Vow' on its season final on monday and catapulted the Dublin singer to the number 1 spot on the Irish iTunes Chart in the process. The song also entered the Top 40 of the U.K. iTunes Chart and has been searched on Shazam over 12,000 times.
The stunning ballad from 2018 soared in full-length at an emotional moment in the show as the Islanders all came together for the Love Island Summer Ball, including Irish contestant Greg O'Shea who was crowned winner of the show.
Speaking about the amazing news, RuthAnne said: "I cannot believe that I have hit #1 in the Irish iTunes chart! I haven't stopped shaking since I heard the song on Love Island on Monday night. It means so much to me as an Irish female artist... We have so much talent in Ireland and I am just over the moon to have achieved the #1 spot and I hope now that even more of my fellow Irish girls will get the same opportunity."
Love Island also previously featured fellow Irish singer Áine's new song 'Dislocated' on the show before it was even released.
After releasing 'Superman' in May, RuthAnne's next record 'Unrequited' will be out on August 9. Her debut album is set to come out in October.
