Charley says VIDEO! Jeronimo – One Kiss

April 25, 2012

You may remember Jeronimo from when I described his “I Am No Superman” as a Dutch Eric Saade doing a Mohombi sounding song.

Since I last wrote about him Jeronimo tried to represent The Netherlands at Eurovision with “Sacrifice“, but sadly failed to make the live show. He did release two more singles. “Somebody Who Loves Me” saw the Dutch singer slow things down a bit, while his most recent effort, “I Want You Baby“, was a cover of the inescapable “Ai Se Eu Te Pego“. Be sure to check it out, as it’s waaay better than Michel Telo’s own English translation!

For “One Kiss“, the brand new single from his debut album set for May 25th,  Jeronimo sticks to those Brazilian influences with some Romanian dance elements thrown in for good measure. The result is as effortlessly catchy as Jeronimo’s earlier output, so be prepared to have it stuck in your head from the moment you click play on the sunny music video below!

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.
