Early life[edit]

Currently based in Los Angeles, Jayne arrived on the club music scene in 2007 with the electro-hued track "Rollercoaster", which went to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. In 2008 her follow-up single "Stars" reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart. Both tracks appeared on her debut album Pretty Mess, released August 2009, and produced by veterans Peter Rafelson and Eric Kupper.[1] Her "Give You Everything" single and "GYE ReMix": topped Billboard's top ten lists again for another six weeks. Erika's "Give You Everything" hit MTV multi-hit videos were again directed by MTV director legend Marty Thomas. Then Jayne released her single "Party People (Ignite the World)" in November 2011.[2] "Party People" reached number 1 on the dance/club chart in January 2012 becoming her 6th consecutive number #1 hit.[3] Having landed six number one slots on the Billboard Dance Chart, Erika Jayne ranks with the Pussycat Dolls and Rihanna for the most number ones on a debut release.[4] Her latest single "Get it Tonight" is also the most successful garnering over three million views on YouTube before it was removed for content violation. "Get it Tonight" is also her first single not to chart to number one on the US Dance charts or to even make the top thirty. In September, 2014, Jayne had her seventh number one dance chart in the US, with "PAINKILLR".[5]
