LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- L.A.-based dance artist Frankie's infectious debut track is already going wild and crazy like an "Animal" in the UK, gearing up to rattle even more cages in the dance world upon its impending release in the U.S. in September.
The track, whose original version appeared on pop/R&B singer Kat DeLuna's 2007 album, 9 Lives, and Co-written by RedOne of Lady Gaga fame, has done the unthinkable for a new indie artist, debuting at #12 on Music Week's Commercial Pop Club Chart in the UK.
Co-produced by Frankie and Anthony Mazza (Christina Aguilera, Nate Dogg, Barracuda, Slumber Party Girls) "Animal"—whose package of remixes is spearheaded by the Superstylers Club Mix—is in good company on the charts with Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Mazza has stated, ""Frankie is a complete singer, songwriter and performer. Her attention to detail in her songs is unheard of with most artists nowadays."
"To debut that high and be so well received is a great honor for me," says Frankie. "Even more exciting, I know that this is just the beginning of a career that will include many more successful releases in the future."
Frankie's fascination for all things dance came from her ten years as a runway model, doing shows everywhere from Miami to Milan. While she was classically trained starting at the age of 4, and has sung everything from adult contemporary pop to jazz, it was the energy of the dance/electronica vibe accompanying her on the runway and in the after hour clubs that piqued her ears – and sparked her musical ambitions. She became a huge fan of DJ's John Digweed and Sasha, electronica artist DJ Tiesto and trance artist Armin Van Buuren. Her current inspirations include French house producer David Guetta and Kaskade.
"Animal" is released on Dauman Music, distributed by Republic Digital/Universal.
