Felix Jaehn first came to prominence in 2015 with his remix of Jamaican artist OMI’s song ‘Cheerleader’. His remix propelled the song to Number One in 68 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, Sweden, the UK and the USA.
He followed this success with ‘Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)’, a rework of the classic Rufus and Chaka Khan song, featuring vocals by British artist Jasmine Thompson, which was another chart topping international hit.
In addition to his popular remixes and covers, Jaehn also writes and releases own songs, including his collaboration with Mike Williams ‘Feel Good’; the BVMI Platinum certified ‘Hot2Touch’ and ‘Like a Riddle’, which recently topped the German airplay chart, as well as his brand new single ‘Cool’ featuring Marc E Bassy and Gucci Mane.
His debut album ‘I’ was released in February 2018 and went straight to Number 5 in the official German albums chart.
Jaehn is also behind the Eff project, a partnership with the singer Mark Forster, which saw the pair top the German charts in 2016 with the single ‘Stimme’.
Over the course of his career to date, Jaehn has been involved with songs that have generated more than 1.5 billion streams on Spotify alone.
