Charley says VIDEO! Jeronimo ft. Stay-C – I Am No Superman

July 6, 2011

If you’ve ever found yourself hoping for a Dutch Eric Saade doing a Mohombi sounding song then you’re in luck!

Jeronimo van Ballegoijen is a Dutch actor and tv host. For his first release since singing the theme to his movie Timboektoe he’s enlisted the help of Stay-C, David Vervoort and Patrick Renier.

Stay-C, who you may remember from 90’s eurodance group Twenty4Seven, is there to drop some rhymes, while former Lasgo member David Vervoort and Patrick Renier are the co-writers of ‘I Am No Superman‘. Patrick was behind a truckload of Belle Perez songs, which explains why Jeronimo’s summer hit has a slight resemblance to ‘Me & You‘ by Belgium’s favourite Latina.

Album track ‘Renaissance Man’, for which Jeronimo made a test video,  and the song playing throughout this vlog suggest that Holland’s next teen idol might be heading for a more R&B influenced pop direction in the future.

So far, however, the tropical beats of ‘I Am No Superman‘ seem to be doing the business just fine. The single is steadily climbing the Dutch charts and has been signed for release in the States, Canada and the UK.

Ralf Mackenbach better watch his back!

Charley says WEEK! 2010.26

July 6, 2010

Things have been a little crazy here, so what better way to get this site back into swing than with Katerine Avgoustakis making a great song even more amazing?

The Charley says POP! favourite joined French singer Grégoire Boissenot on stage at the Greek MAD Awards for a special Greek and French (Grench? Freek?) version of his hit ‘Toi + Moi’.

Grégoire is an artist who got to release music through My Major Company, a website which lets fans invest in the making of their favourite artists’ music. You can compare it to Sellaband, the site through which Dutch singer Hind collected funds for her new CD.

Charley says ARTIST! Jo Hens

June 30, 2010

Jo Hens is the new VJ on Belgian TMF.

Most of the articles on this subject do mention how he’s an actor on soap opera ‘Familie’. He plays Niko, a member of fictional band The Project. (Not to be confused with the TMF talent show of the same name)

Some of the stuff that’s written also say how he’s into music and playing in some bands, but what none of them seem to remember is how only last year he had a solo single out. ‘Anne‘ was a pleasant breasy summer tune and the theme to new digital tv channel Anne. The song was an adaptation of Dutch ‘So You Wannabe A Popstar’ heartthrob Tim Douwsma’s ‘Ga‘.

Oh, and rewatching the video just now, I’m pretty sure the love interest in it is model and former LibertyTV host An Jaspers!
