Dear All, I can’t believe how many of you have written to me to say they loved the Beland Concert in Aid of Puttinu Cares!!! I was overjoyed to meet a lot of you at the FIRST “meet and Greet” session I’ve had since the release of The Fire and many came over to sign their copies and take pictures. It is always so heart-warming to meet the people who are fundamental towards the success story of an album….and you were all there to say hello and tell me how much you love this album!! Watch this space for more information about upcoming gigs.

I’m also still impressed that for 7 …yes 7 weeks The Person I Am held the number one spot on 89.7 Bay’s Top 10, with the cherry on the cake being the entry of The Person I Am  at Number 1 on Bay’s Top 30, and staying there for 3 weeks. It’s always amazing to be amidst the international acts! Well enough talk, let’s get down to the nitty gritty!! Apart from succeeding on the local charts on 89.7 Bay, consistency was also key through the iTunes charts and for this, I would like to thank, ALL of you who support me throughout my endeavours!

Only Teardrops - Emmelie De Forest (Denmark)

One of the most well written songs I spotted in last Tuesday’s Eurovision Semi-Final. I like Emmelie’s execution of the song. It has its similarities to other songs in the international market right now, which makes it a good contender for the top spot in this year’s contest.

Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines ft. T.I., Pharrell (USA)

You may ask why Pharrell Williams features TWICE in my top 5 as you will see….well the reason is plain and simple, the man knows how to hit all the ‘sexy/naughty/funky’ buttons while writing/producing a record. This song’s video was no stranger to controversy after youtube removed it for sexual content woopsy heheh Robin Thicke however sure as hell didn’t need the unrated video to push this song, because it screams radio all the way!!!!

Giorgio Moroder: Racer (ITALY)

Giorgio, Giorgio, Giorgio…you are the reason why I ADORE Electronica/synth pop. I still remember my parents playing their LPs or the tracks blaring out of our radio those days. What I love about this 73 year old songwriter/record producer is that he has always moved with the times, yet holding on to that very unique sound which accompanied many through the 70/80s and which people, Like ME, still gag for till this present day. He is after all a person who has influenced many… besides giving us sound tracks to some of the most colossal movies during the time, “Midnight Express” and “Scarface.” Giorgio we bow down and salute you!!

Daft Punk: Get Lucky Feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers (France/USA)

Where do I begin? The Ultimate French Dance duo to have ever graced the face of this galaxy? CHECK…..the sexiest coloured Rapper/producer/vocalist to hail from the US of A….CHECK……one of the coolest most influential Producer/song writer/musician/arranger/musician from the 70s till the present day who enlists Madonna, Diana Ross, Sister Sledge, Duran Duran and David Bowie…as people he has worked for…CHECK…Can the collaboration BE more amazing than this??? This is ONE track, which is going to be hot on our airwaves throughout Summer. 

Gianluca Bezzina – Tomorrow (Malta)

Gianluca gets on Malmo’s Stage in Sweden tonight to represent us!!! I have no shadow of a doubt that his charm and charisma and above all his talent will make us all proud. The song written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat is a very sweet and sing along song, which I’m sure will capture the hearts of many. Following last Tuesday’s Semi-Finals, I’m sure the song stands a pretty good chance. As a sign of solidarity it is my Number 1 for this month yet again!!!

More information about The Fire concert dates will be available shortly right here!!! On my Facebook Fanpage and on my official website. Till then keep in touch with me by following me on Twitter/Facebook and Youtube. Tata!!! It is important to note that The Fire, the fifth studio album by Ira Losco has managed was the first by a local artist to be available on preorder and performed extremely well with sales rocketing it up to the pole position prior to being over taken for a brief period by Gianluca whom Ira has just ranked as number #1 in her respective list above. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for another blog next month!
