Dutch popstar Jeronimo has unveiled a song from his upcoming album entitled I Want You Baby and it is a fun, Caribbean-infused party track that I envision playing at quite a few barbecues. It continues in the vein of his previous summer hit I Am No Superman. A jolly little song indeed that’ll get your toes tapping for sure. Of course, we are all afire to hear his aspiring Eurovision Song Contest entry Sacrifice (which I wrote about here), but this ought to tide us over until then.
Dutch singer Jeronimo, best known across the low countries for his hit I Am No Superman, has uploaded a preview of the song that has purportedly been submitted to the Dutch selection for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest. It’s called Sacrifice and you can listen to it below:
It’s a very modern, catchy affair that instantly sticks in your head on the first listen. I must have played it about 20 times already. My favourite parts are the ‘uoh-woah-uoh-uoh’s. I really like it and, paired with some slick choreography and a great stage show, it could do wonders. Heck, Jeronimo could be the Dutch Eric Saade! I really do hope that Sacrifice was sent in, because the Netherlands need to wake up and realise that they can’t keep sending old-fashioned songs to the Eurovision Song Contest. They need some fresh blood and a contemporary sound flying the flag and Jeronimo is an ideal candidate.
Yes Jeronimo, you are the superman!
