Jessy De Smet, whose stage name is Jessy (born 8 July 1976, Zottegem, Belgium), is a Belgian dance music singer of Flemish origin.[1] who had several gold records in the late 1990s and 2000s.

She started her career in 1995 as a member of Belgian dance act The Mackenzie ft. Jessy. They had a number of hits and won a TMF Award for best album in 1998 with Angel. "Innocence", "All I Need" and "Alive" were the biggest hit singles. In 2001, Jessy decided to leave The Mackenzie and go solo.

In 2002, she released her solo record Rain, produced by Regi Penxten, the man behind the popular group Milk Inc. The single "Look at Me Now" became a hit in Belgium and the UK, and launched her solo career. After this success, she worked with international acts, such as Verheyen & Vanvaeck, Sash!, Linda (Milk Inc), DJ Rebel, Michael Beltran and Mickey Modelle. Modelle launched her back into the UK Singles Chart with a reworked version of "Dancing in the Dark".

In 2011, Jessy released a greatest hits compilation, The Ultimate Jessy - Best Of 1995-2012, including the new single "Angel" with the American rapper Kaliq Scott.

In 2012, she released "Innocence '12", a remake of her signature song that launched her career in the 1990s. It featured the Belgian urban artist, Abie Flinstone, and was produced by Penxten.
