Having spent the last couple of weeks at home here in Australia promoting her #6 ARIA chart debuting album‘Flashing Lights’, Havana Brown is preparing for her return to the US where the title track from her album has just hit#1 on the Billboard Dance charts.
Havana has been well and truly embraced by the US market since making LA her home. She has already had two#1 singles on the Billboard Dance Charts for ‘We Run The Night’ and ‘Big Banana’, with ‘Flashing Lights’ making it her third single to hit the top spot, placing her ahead of Rihanna, Britney Spears and Katy Perry on the chart and showing no sign of slowing down. Havana is the first Australian female artist to sell a million copies of a single in the US since Olivia Newton-John
Havana has worked tirelessly over the past year writing and producing her debut album in between shows, collaborating with hit artists and super-star producers, Pitbull, RedOne, Afrojack, R3hab, Luciana, Nick Clow, Cave Kings and Grammy winning producer Rodney Jerkins (who produced 2 songs on the album and has previously produced hits for Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber & Britney Spears). Her current single ‘Warrior’ was rush released to radio due to popular demand and Havana chose to film the video whilst she was here in Australia. The video was directed by Einar Egilsson & Styled/Art Directed by Svana Bjorg, a husband/wife creative duo from Iceland now based in LA. Choreographed by Australian duo The Square Division, who choreographed Britney Spears video for ‘Work B**ch’, the video was shot in abandoned silos near Sydney.
With Over 40 million YouTube views of her videos and having already toured the world with the likes of Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Britney Spears and Rihanna, Havana will wrap up her promo visit to Australia with one more very special TV performance on Channel 7’s Dancing With The Stars before she heads back to the US. She will then be back in Australia for not one, but two special New Year’s Eve performances in Melbourne & Sydney.
