WATCH: “Oh My God!” Ira Losco releases her new music video!

After weeks of teasing, the moment is finally here! In the last few moments, Ira Losco has released the official music video for her new single “Oh My God”. It is also the first time we get to hear the song itself too! This track is the fourth single from her upcoming album, due for release later this year.

“”OMG” brings back my fun side!”

“Oh My God” is a track about heartbreak and revenge, featuring a contribution from upcoming rap sensation Shyli. Talking about the single, Ira says:

“In 15 years of my career I don’t think I’ve ever slowed down, so taking a hiatus was the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long while. “We Are The Soldiers” seemed the right track to go for following Eurovision and “OMG” brings back my fun side with a fair share of attitude. I wanted to release a single which reflected my current frame of mind”.

“I wasn’t having it any other way!”

The brightly-coloured summery video was filmed at Hardrocks Business Park. It was directed by “Take 2” who are Abigail Mallia and Carlos Debattista. Ira explains her relationship with the duo:

“Abi, Carlos and I go back a long way. They were instrumental in the success of the first video from “The Fire”, “What I’d Give”. I love script writing for my projects with them, I love Abi directing me and the energy is positively infectious. I wanted them on board for this video and I wasn’t having it any other way!”

In addition, Annalise Ellul is responsible for the choreography the video has to offer!

Malta’s 7th wonder

Of course, Ira Losco rose to fame internationally after finishing in 2nd place in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest. As a result, “7th Wonder” is Malta’s highest placing entry ever alongside Chiara’s “Angel”, which also placed 2nd for Malta in 2005. A long time fan-favourite, Ira finally returned to Eurovision last year. “Walk On Water” brought Malta back to the final with a very respectable 12th place finish!
In fact, this single release is quite a unique moment for me as I’m currently in Malta visiting this beautiful island for the first time. Now, in a lovely coincidence, Malta’s biggest superstar has released a brand new song, and what an amazing song it is! It is sure to be the soundtrack to the rest of my trip here and for my future summer holidays too!
What do you think of Ira’s brand new tune? Plus, with just a couple of days left of my time here in Malta, where must I visit before I leave? Let me know your answers by commenting below!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
