The late Julie-Anne Dineen was the last female Irish act to hit No 1 in Ireland when her charity single Do You Believe reached the top of in Irish Singles Chart in March 2009.

Jazzy’s success marks her second major achievement in just a week – Giving Me topped the Spotify Ireland Top 50 a week ago, making her the first Irish female artist to do so since the streaming platform launched in Ireland in 2012.

Jazzy shot to fame last year as the vocalist on the dance duo Belters Only smash hit, Make Me Feel Good, which made it to No 1 in Ireland and No 4 the UK.

Jazzy credits her start in music to the music programme at St Agnes’ Primary School, Crumlin, where she learned violin.
