Malta: November's Favourite Tunes by Ira Losco

Rate this item
(2 votes)

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. On the other hand, nothing beats the response towards the third single; Me Luv You Long Time, so much so that Ira is calling on her fans for the selection of her fourth single as stated below.

The BMAs are just around the corner. THE PERSON I AM has been nominated in the BEST SONG category  and with it having held the number 1 spot for 6 consecutive weeks it stands a pretty good chance. You can contribute to its success at this year’s BMAs by sending IRA LOSCO to 50615300. You may cast your vote 3 times. I’ve also just launched a BRAND NEW competition in collaboration with Coca Cola on Bay Radio. YOU are going to get to choose my FOURTH single from my latest album THE FIRE. Vote for YOUR favourite song from the 3 choices on my FANPAGE. Click on the Coca Cola Application and be in the chance to win some great prizes as well as choose my Next single!! ... and of course, here are my TOP FIVE (5) for November!

Robbie Williams - Go Gentle (UK)

It’s not one of his best singles ever, however this sing-along single will definitely grow on you. His charisma and tongue in cheek attitude really makes him appealing to many. I preferred his Summer single with Dizzie Rascal, but this is a nice change too.  

Lady Gaga Feat. R.Kelly - Do What You Want (USA)

I really like the 80s sample. I dislike Lady Gaga in general, I think she tries to shove the “Pop Art” image down people’s throat way too much, THAT said, she has an incredible voice and gives a good show. I’m not always keen on the song-writing, but this track I like. 

Foxes - Youth (UK)

Make way for this 24 year old South Hampton lass. She is THAT voice behind Zedd’s ‘Clarity.’  With the melancholy of Lama, the electro pop feel of Ellie and her own little original touch she really is someone to look out for. She has also worked with Fall Out Boy and her hot debut album is scheduled to be released in March!!!

Rihanna - What Now (USA)

The Barbadian beauty keeps re-confirming her relevance in the music scene. A very strong verse and a smashing chorus line makes this tune a definite prized pop song. There are many saying that this is her cry for help, against the dark force which lured her into the Illuminati trap….who knows whether that story is true for the many artists out there… maybe it’s just hype to get everyone to listen to their music…that said, she’s never released anything bad! IMHO.

Rudimental Ft Emeli Sande’ – FREE (UK/Scotland)

When Emeli sings on a track she makes it her own. Her voice gives uniqueness to this powerful single. I love the urban sounds and gospel feel Rudimental bring to FREE. What a great collaboration!!! And as if the fantastic fifth single off Rudimental’s HOME isn’t enough, it is accompanied by a video which’ll have any extreme sport fanatic sitting at the edge of his/her chair.  The video features real life wing suit flier and extreme sports athlete Jokke Sommer gliding through the air around the Eiger mountain in the Alps. The video was directed by Stu Thomson and required no post-production for the stunts, with Sommer displaying his real ability on film.

Well, it has been quite a difficult selection this time round. In the meantime, I would like to let everyone know that this New Years Eve, I will be playing at the La Soiree' Chic. More details are available through the link. You could also win some astonishing prizes in another competition set-up on the page, including a couple of The Fire albums for measure :)
