Dakota & Jonas Blue, Fast Car Number 1 single

Over the Christmas holiday, ICMP alumna Sophie Elton, who goes by the stage name Dakota, received a rather impressive gift from the people of Australia, in the form of a number one single. A collaboration between her and London producer Jonas Blue resulted in the reworking of the Tracy Chapman classic ‘Fast Car’, with the song supplanting Justin Bieber at the top of the Aussie charts for Christmas.

The song has now gone certified Gold in Australia, and has hit over 3 million streams on Spotify.
