“We are deeply grateful for the overwhelming love and support Catherine and our family have received during these challenging times,” the statement read. “Cat's music touched lives beyond her imagination, and she rests knowing that her legacy will continue to support her son through her art. We are indebted to all of you for making this possible.”

Janice’s hit song, “Dance You Outta My Head,” released on January 19, skyrocketed to the top of the TikTok Billboard Top 50 and reached the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. The song garnered over 12.8 million streams on Spotify worldwide.

The widespread support for Janice's final song began when she shared the news of her cancer battle in early January through a TikTok video. She urged viewers to pre-save her last song, revealing that all proceeds would benefit her 7-year-old son.

“I’m fighting to make it to my radiation appointments so I can have a little more time to see this song come to life,” she wrote in another TikTok update days before the release. “I've entrusted all the rights of my music to my son so he has something to remember me by. It's not much.”

“Dance You Outta My Head” became a viral sensation on TikTok, inspiring nearly 200,000 dance videos set to its catchy beat. Influencers like Charli D’Amelio also joined the movement, encouraging their followers to stream the song to support Janice's legacy.
