Erika Jayne is Billboard Hot Dance Airplay's champ one more time as her new single "Give You Everything" secures the hot spot on the U.S. dance tracks chart. The song wins over hit singles from the likes of The Pussycat Dolls, Katy Perry, Sean Kingston and Lady GaGa. This is the third time Erika reigns the chart as she also sat at number 1 with her two previous singles, "Rollercoaster" (2007) and "Star" (2008).

"Give You Everything" has been released for digital download since April alongside its remixes which come from music's hottest talents including DJ Escape & Johnny Vicious, Moto Blanco, Mike Rizzo and Dave Aude. The song is the third single from Erika's forthcoming debut album "Pretty Mess" which will hit U.S. market on August 11.

A music video for the track has been debuted since March. Pairing her up with Grammy-nominated music video director Marty Thomas and choreographer Mikey Minden, the video showcases Jayne not only as a singer, but also as a true dancer and fashion icon.

"I've had such a wonderful time with this song," Erika commented on the chart topper single. "From conceiving it with co-writer and producer Peter Rafelson, to creating its video with Marty Thomas highlighting a really great dance sequence from Mikey Minden, plus having the honor of performing it at Gay Pride celebrations in both LA and San Francisco, I'm just tickled to see it go #1!"

"Pretty Mess" itself is a collection of rhythmic pop, dance tracks and chill electronic ballads. It is produced by acclaimed producers, including Peter Rafelson (Madonna, Britney Spears, Stevie Nicks), Eric Kupper (Shakira, Destiny's Child, Kylie Minogue), Esthero a.k.a Pinklake, Jahi Lake (Chris Brown) and Ike Dirty (Lil Scrappy, Ying Yang Twins).

On top of that, Erika also contributed on the songwriting table for several songs in this studio project. To help her, she tagged Prince's protege Sheila E. to play percussion on "Time to Realize", one of the four songs she co-wrote.

In celebration of the album's release, Erika will perform at Los Angeles' Avalon on August 6. Then, she will sing at House of Blues in Atlantic City, New Jersey on the day the record arrives in stores. After that, she will head up to Las Vegas for a one-off gig at Krave on September 5.
