Pretty Poison with Jade Starling
A Return To Billboard’s Top 5
Jade is back with the Official Anthem to the Summer of ‘19. “FIRED UP” was released to DJs only on February 13th and since then it has literally exploded in the clubs. “This record was on Fire from the moment we released it” says Jade.
In a matter of 7 weeks, “Fired Up” exploded up the chart to the #3 position on the highly politicized Billboard Club Play Chart Top 50 where it duked it out with Ariana Grande for #1.
“I Feel So Blessed to have the Billboard Panel’s support on this record. We actually played with Funky Green Dogs back when we were working “Let Freedom Ring”. We had heard “Fired Up” a few years ago and my long time Co-Writer/Producer Whey Cooler suggested we cover it.
While in production Whey was diagnosed with Tonsil Cancer and fought a long, hard battle. Two years later he is Cancer free so we decided to finish the record and get remixes done. We sent the record to famed record promoter Loren Chaidez and he Loved it! To have “Fired Up “be so widely received is truly a full circlemoment”
As “FIRED UP” approached the top of the Billboard Club Chart, it also topped the highly influential ZIP DJ chart representing over 1000 DJs worldwide and the equally important MUSIC WORX North American chart as well as their House Music Chart. In addition to this, it impacted radio both on-line and terrestrial making it one of the anthems of the Summer of 2019. As its popularity continued to grow, Jade has introduced the “FIRED UP CHALLENGE”.
In addition to this, Jade has had several hi-profile events and appearances during the Summer of’19 kicking off with the 80s convention in Las Vegas known simply as
Hosted by Alan Hunter best known as one of the 5 original MTV VJs. This event featured performances by “When In Rome”, “Patty Smyth and Scandal”, “Mr. Mister”, “A Flock of Seagulls”, the “Outfield”, “Missing Persons”, “The Romantics”, “Thomas Dolby”, “Expose”, and the “Reflex”.
This Vegas event was the precursor to its big brother, the Ultimate 80s event of the year, “80s In The Sand” held in Punta Cana Dominican Republic. This is a 9 day all inclusive trip is to the beautiful 5 star BREATHLESS Hotel & Resort.
In addition to Jade and Pretty Poison, this year’s line-up includes Sammy Hagar, Erasure’s AndyBell, Debbie Gibson, Lita Ford, Modern English, Saga, Glass Tiger, Greg Kihn Band, Paul Young, Tone Loc, Midge Ure of Ultavox, Shannon, Expose and Company B.
