Dominates Dance Club Music Scene In 2008; Poised For Pop Success In 2009

I'm thrilled and honored that my music continues to resonate with fans all over the world

Los Angeles (PRWEB) January 8, 2009 -- International singing and dance sensation Erika Jayne (http://www.erikajayne.com) continues to dominate the dance club music scene skyrocketing on to the Billboard Year-End Charts for the second consecutive year. Jayne, who took the dance world by storm in 2007 with the smash hit "Roller Coaster," a number one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, has once again captivated the hearts and feet of dance music fans worldwide with "Stars," which topped out at number one on both the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play and Billboard Hot Dance Airplay charts.

"I'm thrilled and honored that my music continues to resonate with fans all over the world," stated Jayne. "2009 is going to be quite an exciting year with the launch of my debut album, Pretty Mess. Fans who have anxiously awaited its release will not be disappointed."

"Stars," along with "Roller Coaster," will be included on Jayne's highly anticipated debut album Pretty Mess. Scheduled for release in early 2009, the album features production by Peter Rafelson and Eric Kupper and shows the many sides of Erika Jayne in a fusion of Dance, Pop and Electronica. Guest production includes Esthero and Jahi Lake (Chris Brown), under the production name Pinklake, as well as Ike Dirty (Lil' Scrappy, Ying Yang Twinz), son of legendary artist Isaac Hayes. In addition, Jayne's debut effort will feature guest percussion from the multi-talented Shiela E on "Time to Realize" and a cover of the hit single "Sex Shooter," originally released in 1984 by Prince protégé Apollonia.

Tracks from Pretty Mess are also bringing Jayne to the big screen with music from the forthcoming album being featured in both current and upcoming films. "I Lose Myself" and "Just a Phase" make an appearance in the romantic comedy The Neighbor, starring Matthew Modine and Michelle Laroque, while "Rollercoaster" can be heard in Deal, starring Burt Reynolds, as well as the upcoming thriller Bumper. The hit single "Stars" will also be heard in American Summer, an upcoming comedy from the director of American Pie 2.

The video for "Stars," directed by Scott Speer (Will.I.Am, The Veronicas, Paris Hilton, Brandi Carlisle), debuted on LOGO's music video show, The Click List, where it remained ranked for months amongst the program's most popular videos.

In addition to the recent success of the "Stars" single and video in the US, Jayne is making a name for herself internationally, including massive club exposure in the UK and the recent debut of "Roller Coaster" on Germany's DDC charts.

About Erika Jayne
The rise of budding pop star Erika Jayne (http://www.erikajayne.com) continues to unfold with the debut of her new video for "Stars," the smash hit that's already reached number one on both the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart and the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart. The provocative clip, directed by video auteur Scott Speer (Will.I.am, The Veronicas, Paris Hilton, Brandi Carlile), shows off the magnetic presence Jayne has become known for during her recent spate of live shows around the U.S.

"Stars" has taken Jayne's career to a whole new level. The song's overwhelming success signals that the singer, having conquered the clubs and dance radio, is ready to infiltrate pop radio.

"Stars" is the smash hit follow-up to "Roller Coaster," also a number one hit on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Both tracks were written and produced by Peter Rafelson and Eric Kupper. "Stars" and "Roller Coaster" are included on Jayne's eagerly awaited debut album Pretty Mess, slated for release in early 2009.

With the upcoming Pretty Mess, the Atlanta-born Jayne has created a distinctive fusion of rhythmic pop, dance, and chill electronica ballads that is thoroughly modern yet ear-catchingly familiar. The album is produced by Peter Rafelson and mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Tony Maserati. Kupper also contributes mixes for album Tracks "Pretty Mess" and "Beautiful."

Internationally, already a sensation in the UK after enormous club exposure and electric live performances, Jayne has earned support from a variety of circles. The Guardian says, "Erika Jayne is Madonna trapped in the moment when she recorded the Erotica album. She's Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge goes trance with a dash of debauchery, or Gwen Stefani goes burlesque. She's equal parts Hollywood glamour and S&M chic, the spawn of Sapphic union between Rita Hayworth and Traci Lords."

High praise indeed for a performer whose ascent into the stratosphere has only just begun. Jayne fans can look forward to an early 2009 release for Pretty Mess.
