MOMENTUM continues to grow for the first music release from budding teenage pop starlet Beckii Cruel, known by her school friends and family as Rebecca Flint.
Her single U Can’t Kiss Me has experienced a steady rise in club charts, and after debuting at number 45 in the Upfront Club Chart in October, the song broke into the top 10 earlier this month, peaking at number 8 on December 22.
The chart is compiled by Music Week, a British music industry magazine and subscription website, and is updated weekly according to chart returns supplied by DJs in nightclubs around the UK.
The 16-year-old from Ramsey has been working to launch a career off the back of her popularity in Japan, where her YouTube videos of dancing to Asian pop hits gained her a large fan base.
U Can’t Kiss Me also clocked at number 15 in Music Week’s Commercial Pop Top 30, compiled in a similar way to the Upfront Club Chart but featuring a wider range of music.
Beckii said: ‘This is now so amazing. U Can’t Kiss Me just seems to be loved by so many people. To think it is going to be making so many Christmas parties go with a bang is great. And I’m still not old enough to go in most clubs.’
The most up to date chart sees the single still sitting pretty, at number 12 on the Upfront Club Chart.
