Summer is about to get that much hotter…Posted: July 1, 2011
Over the years, the Eurovision stage has been graced by the heels of some of Europe’s most talented and beautiful female singers. And a trio of them have released new singles in time for summer, making me want to throw a massive party just for an excuse to play them at full blast. But then again, I never really needed much of an excuse anyway….
Kate Ryan (Belgium 2006) – LoveLife
LoveLife sees Kate Ryan doing what she does best: glamorous dance with a tinge of Europop. Even though the message of living one life with one love and that being all you need is a tried, tested and exhausted concept, the song still manages to be a generous slice of euphoric dance pop that will no doubt see a fair share of radio play. LoveLife is the lead single from Kate’s upcoming English-language release ‘Electroshock’, and comes with a glam music video in which we get to see Kate strut her stuff and like nobody’s business.
Kalomira (Greece 2008) – This Is The Time
The Muse that provided the inspiration for Greece’s third place finish at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest is back with a brand new single after a bit of a hiatus. This Is The Time is a sparkly piece of pop in which Kalomira abandons the bouzouki in favour of uplifting synths. Her voice, which is foil-thin a la Janet Jackson, somehow suits this style of music. And wow, how amazing does she look?
AySel (Azerbaijan 2009) – Tonight
AySel has also opted for a change of style. The Azeri beauty is prepping for the release of Tonight which is a combination of Romanian dance music and Jennifer Lopez’s On The Floor. It’s a cool song with the potential to do really well internationally.
