San Marino’s 2016 representative, Serhat, has entered the US Billboard charts at number 36 with a revised version of his Eurovision entry ‘I Didn’t Know’.
“I Didn’t Know” revived with the help of Martha Wash
Serhat released a new refreshed version of his entry in November last year, in a collaboration with 2 x Grammy nominee Martha Wash.
In 2016, Billboard Magazine ranked her as the 58th most successful dance artist of all-time. She has lended vocals to various successful dance tracks such as Black Box’s “Everybody Everybody” and C+C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat“.
With her notable success in the US, Martha’s inclusion in the song has given it the support it needed. ‘I Didn’t Know’ is currently sitting comfortably in Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart at number 36
Serhat acknowledges Billboard success
Since the chart was revealed earlier this week, Serhat took to twitter to express his appreciation on the news.
