After scoring a top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 as a guest vocalist on Gym Class Heroes' "Ass Back Home" (which has climbed as high as No. 12 and is now No. 16), British singer/songwriter Neon Hitch notched her first No. 1 as a solo artist last week when her debut single, "Fuck U Betta," hit the top of the Dance Club Songs chart in its sixth week. (The song drops to No. 10 this week.) The propulsive club track, which has sold 28,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, previews the singer's debut album, "Beg, Borrow and Steal," due in late summer on Warner Bros.
Before the success of the two singles, the 25-year-old London native was best-known to U.S. audiences for her writing credits on Ke$ha's top 10 2010 hit "Blah Blah Blah" and 3OH!3's "Follow Me Down." Benny Blanco, the producer behind such chart-toppers as Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" and Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," pulled Hitch onto "Ass Back Home" as a guest vocalist after working with her on "Blah Blah Blah." Blanco also helmed "Fuck U Betta."
