A Media Luz: The Carola penned album track!
Beautiful Night: The disco anthem supreme!
Rosa Lopez, Eurovision singer, Pop Idol winner and now disco diva. A star in Spain where she broke records for sell out shows and album sales. So much so that she had a nervous breakdown after the initial burst of musical fanfare. Now shes back with a huge disco album that has wiped the nay from the sayers.
If theres one country that has taken Swedish talent it has be Spain. Every pop act coming out of Spain at the moment is working with Swedish producers and writers with sublime results. The album by Rosa Lopez is proof of that interesting relationship. Nearly every track has been written in Sweden with the pop maestros Bobby Ljunggren, Anders Wikstrom, Tobias Lundgren, Fredrik Thomander and Mats Ymell. In other words her Me Siento Viva album is a discopop frenzy that is punctuated by her stunning cover Diane Ross’s Upside Down.
Now, one of the songs I’ve selected today was written by Swedish legend Carola. Yes her of Framling, Invincible and Genom Alt fame. If you still don’t know who I’m talking about she represented Sweden at this years Eurovision in Greece. It sounds a bit like Cher's Strong Enough.
For your added enjoyment I’ve added the brilliant sort-of-Spanglish track by Rosa titled Beautiful Night. It includes waves of electro keyboards, disco slicks and is that a sitar I detect? To me this song wouldn’t go amiss on the first BwO album and has shades of A Teens but then again it was written by Fredrik Thomander; the guy behind Firefly and Sugar Rush.
Words: Disco, Carola, Divas, Eurovision. A-Teens, Scandipop, Spainpop!
Wondered what Anders Wollbeck, of Alcazar & Negotiate With Love fame, did with Rosa's rival? No? Yes? Well wonder no more as shes the next DSTP feature!
