Tragic Loss: Singer Cat Janice Dies at 31 After Battle With Cancer


Cat Janice, the beloved singer-songwriter who touched hearts with her viral sensation “Dance You Outta My Head,” bid farewell to the world on February 28, leaving behind a poignant legacy of resilience and artistry.

Her final composition, “Dance You Outta My Head,” released on her birthday that month, embodied her spirit of resilience and positivity in the face of adversity.

The response was overwhelming. “Dance You Outta My Head” soared to the pinnacle of TikTok charts, captivating audiences with its infectious rhythm and empowering lyrics. Beyond social media, the track ascended the ranks of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, lauded for its digital sales and streaming figures.

Janice’s determination to share her artistry and provide for her son resonated deeply with fans worldwide. Though her time on earth was cut short, her music and message of self-love and fortitude continue to inspire and uplift countless souls.

In accordance with Janice’s wishes, her family plans to release new music posthumously, ensuring her creative spirit endures.
