♬ Dance You Outta My Head – Cat Janice

Cat Janice had previously spoken about where the inspiration for her viral TikTok hit Dance You Outta My Head came from. She said she and her son were in the car when “inspiration struck.” Janice continued: ‘We came up with some fun lyrics and a little ditty. I song banked it and made a little voice note of it and as time went on, we would bounce around in the car to it every now and then.”

Cat Janice didn’t finish the song until she decided to enter a songwriting competition, where she met Max Vernon and the two decided to collaborate on the song and won the competition.
