Charley says SONG! Nelson Moraïs – She’s So Lonely

March 23, 2011

Charley says POP! favourite Nelson Moraïs is back with another great dance track!

I told you earlier how Nelson went from being his sister’s background singer to Eurosong hopeful to Belgium’s smoothest voiced male dance star.

Last I heard an album was in the works for release in 2011, but at the rate he’s going he might have released himself an entire Best Of before you know it. Not that we’re complaining!

As far as I can tell from the writing credits, his latest gem sees Nelson stepping out of his Daniel Bovie produced comfort zone.

Instead, ‘She’s So Lonely‘ was co-written by Yves Gaillard.

The two previously worked together on ‘She’s Gone‘ and with a track record to Yves’ name that includes Hadise, Kate Ryan and Katerine Avgoustakis I’m not even sure why you’re still reading this instead of clicking the play button above like a mad man!

Charley says VIDEO! Daniel Bovie & Roy Rox vs. Ricky Rivaro ft. Nelson – My Destiny

November 21, 2010

So this is the confusing new Nelson Moraïs single!

Not confusing in its quality, as it’s quite clearly on the amazing side of things, but as to exactly what project this new release belongs.

I introduced you earlier to Nelson, brother of Elsie Moraïs and Eurosong 2008 participant.

Now last Friday he was on Peter Live, singing a medley of ‘Love Me‘, ‘She’s Gone‘ and ‘Stop Playing With My Mind‘. This was the first Nelson surprise of the weekend for me. I’d never realised that it was him doing vocals on that last song!

As I was doing a bit of digging around on the Ultratop site, I stumbled upon ‘My Destiny‘. I assumed it was another old track, but as it turns out it’s a brand new single! Once again it’s produced by Daniel Bovie & Roy Rox, but this time with the help of Ricky Rivaro.

Now here’s where it  gets confusing. Nelson had mentioned after this week’s tv performance that he’s working an album for early next year and that a new single was coming up soon. Would that be ‘My Destiny’ then? One would assume so, but then why doesn’t Nelson get a mention on the single sleeve?

In fact, the credits for Nelson’s entire discography since signing with Mostiko are all over the place!

It’s an OCD iTunes tagger’s ultimate nightmare!

And that’s not even including the two tracks he did for ‘Registrated 2’. ‘Imagination‘ and ‘Now You’re Gone‘ are credited as Regi & Nelson and I can definitely see them popping up on the album. Be it the original versions or, as was the case with Katerine’s ‘Back Off‘, in remixed form.

I guess only time will tell, so as for now let’s just enjoy this rather enjoyable new single and the fact that Nelson’s recording an album. No matter what songs will or will not be included and how they might have to be tagged!

Charley says VIDEO! Gina – X Man (To The Next Man)

June 2, 2010

Look what I stumbled upon on YouTube!

In the late 90’s and early 00’s Gina Brondeel was one half of X-Session. Together with Gene Thomas she turned the group into one of the most popular in Belgium.

Before she was with the band, early singles like ‘Bang Bang’ were full on eurodance. When Gina joined and X-Session started getting a bigger profile, their sound evolved into something a little more pop. With their second album the scales even tipped towards bubblegum pop with cartoonish videos full of dressing up and wacky storylines.

In 2003, after X-Session had split up, Gina released her first solo single. ‘X Man (To The Next Man)‘ fitted perfectly in the commercial female R&B sound of the time, but didn’t manage to storm the charts.

Apparently there’s a second single, but I for one have never heard ‘If U Want My Love’. I’m not sure if it ever got beyond promos being sent out, but it definitely didn’t chart.

Gina went on to acting, landing among other things a role on Sara, the Flemish adaptation of Ugly Betty.

These days she’s busy with the X-Session comeback. A brand new single from Gene and Gina is on the way.
