    • Share

Kiesza has shot straight to the top of the Official Singles Chart with her debut release, Hideaway.

The Canadian singer/songwriter has knocked last week's chart-topper, Nobody To Love by Sigma (Number 2 today), off the summit to claim her first ever UK Number 1.

"Being Number 1 is the most amazing feeling ever," Kiesza told OfficialCharts.com. "I just want to say thank you to everybody who's supported it. I never expected this at all when I created Hideaway; it's amazing to see people come out of the woodwork and fall in love with it, so thank you!"

The 25-year-old, who is also a classically trained ballerina, first realised she wanted a career in music while working as a code breaker for the Royal Canadian Navy.

"Music was always a part of my life, but it was more of a hobby," she explains. "When I started sailing on large vessels, people would bring instruments onto the ship and start jamming, and that led me to start song writing. That was the first time that I realised I had a natural instinct for it, and it just led me down this whole musical road that I'm on."
