“Valentine” peaked at #1 on the Spotify Jazz Chart when it was released as a single in 2022. That milestone was just the first of many, with Laufey releasing her chart-topping album ‘Bewitched’ the following year in 2023, the biggest debut for a jazz album on Spotify in history. Singles from the album including “From The Start” broke into top and viral charts globally and Laufey celebrated the album on ‘The Bewitched Tour’ where she played for the first time in cities including Manila, Singapore, and Taipei in 2023.
The GRAMMY win culminates a breakout year for Laufey. Apart from winning her first-ever GRAMMY, she performed her viral hit “From The Start” at the Premiere Ceremony, and played cello alongside Billy Joel during the performance of his new single. Laufey is continuing this streak with ‘Bewitched: The Goddess Tour’, her upcoming world tour that sold out within minutes.
