‘I don’t have much’

Janice teased a song on TikTok last month, where she said that“cancer has won” after a difficult battle. She requested her fans to pre-save her final song, adding that all proceeds from it would go to her son, 7.

“I’m crawling to my radiation so I can buy myself some time so I can see this song released,” she wrote in another TikTok update days before the release. “I changed all the rights of my songs to my son so I can leave him behind something. I don’t have much.” “I changed all the rights of my songs to my son so I can leave him behind something. I don’t have much.”

Dance You Outta My Head, a song by Janice, reached No. 1 on the TikTok Billboard Top 50 after being released on January 19. It then reached the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. The song has been streamed over 12.8 million times worldwide on Spotify.

Last month, the singer told TODAY.com in an interview that the song is about “feeling yourself, you’re at the top of your mood.” She added that she was overwhelmed by the support. “I really wasn’t expecting to be here,” she said. “I really do believe it’s a miracle to be able to witness this. I’m just very happy to be here.”
