South African singer Louise Carver sees her single ‘Sunrise’ with US DJ Joe Bermudez take the #3 spot on the Billboard ‘Dance/Club Play’ chart.
An incredible achievement for a South African artist as the chart celebrates the week’s most popular songs played in dance clubs, compiled from reports from a national sample of club DJs, with Joe Bermudez and Louise Carver getting more plays than singles from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Calvin Harris, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. They’re sitting just between Rihanna at #2 and Zayn at #4.

‘Joe and I worked on the track ‘Sunrise’ in Boston and spent many long hours in studio getting it right. Just knowing that people are enjoying it makes us so happy. I love working with Joe because we both are all about the music and the journey it takes us on,’ comments an ecstatic Louise Carver.
The single is released to South African radio this week and Louise is eager for her SA fans to hear the track.
How did these two meet and create a Billboard charting single?
Joe Bermudez was the opening act for the David Guetta/Akon tour in South Africa a few years back. On his way to a 5FM interview he heard the Pascal & Pearce track for ‘Days Go By’ featuring Louise Carver on vocals. Loving the sound of Louise’s voice, Joe wanted to work with her and tracked Louise down. She initially recorded the vocals for ‘Sunrise’ in South Africa, but Joe invited her to Boston where they worked together on making an incredible dance track. And the rest, as they say is history.
