Charley says SONG! Dan Balan ft. Eleni Foureira – Chica Bomb

July 14, 2010

Former O-Zone singer Dan Balan has been keeping himself busy since the ‘Dragostea Din Tei‘ band split.

He released an album as Crazy Loop fronted by the eponymous lead single, which was rather ridiculous and a whole lot of amazing at once.

Dan, who keeps getting hotter with every video, is currently promoting his European hit ‘Chica Bomb‘. There’s one country who’s getting some extra attention though…

For the Greek release Dan is joined by Eleni Foureira who does the verses in the local language. I’m not familiar with Eleni, but judging by her MAD Video Music Awards performance she looks like a brilliant popstar. It’s probably just the hair, but she reminds me of DanceX winner and Britannia High star Rana Roy.

I wonder if more artists will follow suit? Maybe Greece will follow France’s tested formula of having international stars feature local singers for a translated verse or two?

Charley says WEEK! 2010.24

Emmène-Moi‘ is one of those songs that I must have listened to so much as a kid, that today I can still sing along to every word of it. And to be honest, I still think it is completely amazing.

Allan Théo is a French singer who hit it big in 1998 with this Frenglish song. He had another French top 10 hit from his debut album with ‘Lola‘. There’s a bit of a depressing tale on Wikipedia of self-financed follow-up projects which had him sell his house, only for it all to go wrong. However, all’s well that ends well, as these days Allan is said to be a banker who is still doing music on the side. His website promises a new album very soon.
