International Love For Eva Simons


A couple of months ago I wrote a post about Eva Simons and predicted that 2012 would be her year. And, as usual, I was right! This week, the Dutch diva scores her first UK number one hit courtesy of her fabulous feature on will.i.am's "This Is Love" and tops the US club chart with solo single "I Don't Like You". A pretty good week by anyone's standards! Australia has also succumbed to the "Silly Boy" singer. "This Is Love" jumped into the top 10 on Sunday and looks set to climb even further. I'm ecstatic for Eva. She copped a lot of flack at the beginning of her career for perceived similarities to Rihanna and Lady Gaga but Holland's best export since Elise had the last laugh. While I prefer "I Don't Like You" to "This Is Love" (below), they are both great pop songs with booming choruses that instantly command your attention. I hope that her long-promised debut album finally emerges now. She already a bunch of hits to fill it with and the new songs that are starting to appear online ("Renegade" and "Ohh Na Na") all sound fantastic. Bow down.

As will.i.am songs go, this one's kind of harmless in its trend-chasing sound. I do agree she's a powerhouse just waiting for the right track to break things wide open.

And whats with the wierd pointing thing in the video in which she makes dick.less.cunt seem the normal one? Though for the two who cared, the hairdon't explains why Smelly La Puke hasn't been polluting the airwaves with her whinging shitefests as this [i]thing[/i] is wearing her scalp!

Good for her! To be honest I was a little scared she's fade into obscurity after singing a song that literally EVERYONE thought was a Lady Gaga/Rihanna demo, but she's getting her own back, thank God.
