escflashmalta.com in collaboration with Jagged House has been presenting a montly blog written by Ira Losco, a former representative of Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest and one of the most recognised female vocalists in the country. Around a year ago, following an extended period of time off, Ira Losco returned to the local music scene with the track What I'd Give which won her several accolades. Soon after, the launch of both the album entitled The Fire and the second single, bearing the name The Person I Am featuring guest vocals by David Leguesse.

I’m currently writing this amidst crazy prep work for my next video for my Hot Summer Single Me Luv u Long Time. I’m obviously excited and slightly nervous about it there are a LOT of people on board this time…. The Bigger Picture taking care of all Direction/Production for the video of the third single off The Fire. I just can’t wait!!! Here go my Top 5 Tracks for the month. It's quite intriguing to denote that Ira Losco listens to tracks from all over the world including Europe, America and Australia. It is unknown whether she will be listening to anything Asian sometime soon.

Goin’ Crazy - Dizzie Rascal Feat. Robbie Williams (UK)

When I’d heard the Ghanaian British rapper first I hated that whole cockney thing. Don’t get me wrong…. I LOVE the cockney accent with a passion, I secretly do imitations, they crack me up, however I didn’t really warm up to the idea at first. Then I started to like ‘The Streets,’ cause of their unbelievable lyrical content, Lilly Allen’s wit and I slowly but surely started to watch out for Dizzie. He’s one hell of a writer!!! I love this collaboration with bad boy Robbie Williams, who is a great showman and vocalist, hands down!

Wild - Jessie J (UK)

This girl is on fire, she is inspiring, her strength is something, which I aspire to. Her voice…let’s not even go there…I haven’t heard a vocalist like her in years!!! Her range is  every singer’s  dream! She’s beautiful and talented. Plus I’m so chuffed I got to see her live on our island, she stole the show!

La La La - Naughty Boy (Feat. Sam Smith) (UK)

It seems my top 5 is all about the Brits! Naughty Boy, born Shahid Khan is a British writer/musician/producer/rapper. He is well known for producing two top-ten records for UK rappers Chipmunk and Wiley, with guest vocals featuring singer-songwriter Emeli Sande’ besides a strong writing and production partnership with the latter. He has worked with Cheryl Cole, Jennfier Hudson and Leona Lewis. This is one of those songs you sing along to endlessly….. all day long!!

Attracting Flies - Aluna George (UK)

I LOVE the chavved up version of fairytales we all know  so well in the video. Aluna’s voice is soothing and sexy at the same time. This is a pop song for sur,e but so sleek I just had to put it into my top5. I love her cheekiness and she is definitely an artist to look out for in future.

Acapella - Karmin (USA)

The first time I heard this track I was intrigued by how sexy this girl’s voice is. I love that little playful squeak in her voice and the raunchy lyrics.  The dynamic duo have really made their presence felt with their latest single, they were already quite significant in the US, but this single has really gotten people talking about them!!! I’ve posted the acoustic version because I think there’s so much to savour from this raw version.  It’s my number 1 for this week…best line in the song?? “never mind….bring the beat back!” 

As always stay tuned to my facebook Fanpage for status/picture/video/music updates and BRAND NEW VIDEO updates THIS weekend!!! For those of you who STILL haven’t purchased The Fire …you can do so by clicking here!! The band and I had an awesome performance at Hondoq Ir-Rummien. Last Friday, the vibe was something out of this world.  We are now getting ready for The Beer festival on Sunday 28th July…dust dust go away!!!

Hehehe and also The Great Hal-Ghaxaq Festival on Tuesday 6th August in aid of Puttinu Cares. Both concerts are FREE entrance and I will be holding Meet & Greet sessions after each performance. Looking forward to meeting all of you!!!
