A young Irish dance music group called Belters Only are heading for number one in the British charts with their smash hit, Make Me Feel Good.

Dublin DJs Bissett and Robbie G and their friend Jazzy, from local group Powerful Creative Minds, have already topped the Irish singles chart - making them the first home grown dance act to hit number one in the national charts since DJ Mark McCabe's Maniac 2000 a staggering 22 years ago.

They're also the first Irish act to score number one in the Irish charts as a lead artist since Dermot Kennedy with Giants in December 2020.

The track exploded on TikTok after being embraced by influencers and TikTok-ers alike. In total, the top five videos using this sound accumulated an impressive 2.5 million views, over 13,000 creations and more than 13 million global views within the past six days.

This week Make Me Feel Good, which has already clocked up 15 million streams on Spotify alone, got a major boost in Britain with the release of a new remix of the track featuring leading UK rappers Tion Wayne and Bru-C.

The group have enjoyed a spot in the top five in the British chart over the last number of weeks.

"My God, what a moment, what a feeling," Bissett said on social media. All the hard work, all the dedication, the sacrifices, all for moments like this, I cannot thank you all enough. I mean it from the bottom of my heart, I love you all for this, the support has been crazy."

Make Me Feel Good was originally released in 2021.

Belters Only reveal that they met through a Dublin club.

"We knew each other from years ago," Robbie explains. "We stem from the same club in Dublin, [then] we kind of went our separate ways and pushed on with our careers. Belters Only started off as a weekly residency in Dublin.

"Obviously, throughout the pandemic the clubs were closed, so we started focusing on making music and building Belters Only as a brand, rather than just this weekly thing."

The track features vocals from singer Jazzy, who has a close connection with the boys. "We've known Jazzy for years now," Bissett reveals.

"But we never really knew she had a great voice [until] she stepped in the studio. We knew we could smash this track and she was perfect for it."
