Greek Australian producer, songwriter and singer VASSY (Vassy Karagiorgos) has hit the number #1 spot on the US Dance Charts, once again proving she is a global dance music superstar.
Her track, Pieces was the most added dance track in the US alongside Bingo Players and Disco Fries and also the third most played song at dance radio in the US as of last week.
“It's so amazing to see that ‘Pieces’ is the most added record at dance radio across the US. It was exciting news for us all when notified by Media-Base that the song was placed right next to Drake and Megan Trainor as most added songs at Radio nationally in the U.S. Now to see it climbing the charts & holding the #3 position (following David Guetta and Armin Van Buuren), as the most played song at dance radio across America is unreal," said VASSY.
The track is an uplifting house track that utilises slick production from Bingo Players and pop textures by Disco Fries. It reflects the power of love and the ability it has to lift any mood.
"We have all been in a place in our lives where we have felt lost, alone and incomplete. The song's intention is to empower you and inspire you to conquer all your fears."
VASSY is a contemporary dance music icon, known widely for her hits Bad and Secrets with David Guetta and Tiesto and has earned multiple number 1 records in over 30 countries, 17 platinum certifications and billions of streams.
She relocated to LA a decade ago after being born and raised in Darwin. In 2013 she became the first Australian artist to hit #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with a solo track We Are Young and has since topped the chart many times.
On moving to the States VASSY stated that "It was really tough, a lot of us artists suffered during that time and unfortunately, we had to leave our own country – me and several other artists I know who were going through this – to succeed.
"It’s sad [I had to leave Australia to pursue a sustainable career in music] but, you know, the cool thing now is that – having had all the history, and the calibre of iconic, A-list music artists that I’ve worked with – I’m now able to bring that narrative back home and I can start to interlace the narrative with more of a local story."
