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 EUROVISON! The Year Flanders Saved Itself

May 30, 2010

Well, we did it!

Tom Dice came sixth in the final of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest.

He may have lost out to Lena’s ‘Satellite‘ and he may have slipped down a couple of places after being in the top three throughout most of the voting, but Tom proved that Belgium can be a contender for Eurovision victory.

More specifically, Tom proved that a Flemish entry can do well.

Credit where it’s due, even though their output since ‘Sanomi‘ has been disappointing, it’s our friends from Wallonia who have given us Urban Trad, Melanie Cohl and even a win with Sandra Kim.

Next year may not be our turn to select an entry, but I’m already curious to see who will follow up Tom for Flanders in 2012.

Maybe Ellektra? Her ‘Do You Really Wanna Be With Me‘ would have made for a great entry, wouldn’t it? Maybe someone like Nelson, who competed in Eurosong 2008, but has since settled for a great pop/dance sound? Maybe an artist we don’t even know yet, like someone who might come out of Idool 2010 later this year?

I for one can’t wait to see what’s next.

Oh and you may have noticed that the song above is not ‘Me And My Guitar‘, but let’s not forget that just a couple of months ago Laura sang Belgium to a fourth place at Junior Eurovision! If you’re not familiar with ‘Zo Verliefd (Yodelo)‘ yet, you can hear her bubblegum pop yodel anthem above.
