On the song, called “You and Me”, Amy is featured as the singer and songwriter, which is currently placed on many major Radio station charts as a very fresh, upbeat and “heavyweight” song within the EDM genre. Despite this being new territory for Amy and with a different genre, she totally nailed it with the amount of downloads and shazams having reached an all time high and milestone and as Amy becomes more and more popular and known amongst her fans and the listeners her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers increase daily.
