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! 2010.26

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.
