Last May, Lisandro Cuxi, one of the favourite of Destination Eurovision 2018, annouced that he was working on a second album. While much is still unknown about this future production, Lisandro has given us some hints.
On May 13th, the day after the Eurovision Final, Lisandro Cuxi tweeted a video where he revealed his intention to release a second album “very quickly”. His first album, Ma bonne étoile, was released in September 2017. But now, he has signed with Monstre Marin Corporation, a label created by Maître Gims, one of the most successful French artist and rapper nowadays.

In the video, you can see him with big names of the French musical scene like Vianney and Kendji Girac (winner of The Voice in 2014), as well as Maître Gims himself.
More recently, Lisandro tweetd a picture of him with other music producers, including Vitaa, hinting at some solid collaborations for this second album. But even though Lisandro uses the hashtag #soon, no date has yet been revealed for the commercial release of this album. Neither do we know the title of the album, or of any song. One can however assume his Destination Eurovision entry “Eva” will be in it.

Destination Eurovision 2018
Eurovision fans know Lisandro because of his participation in Destination Eurovision. Despite being a favorite, with his song “Eva”, and despite wining the jury vote in the Final, he only received 17% of the televote and finished second.
Interestingly, both Maître Gims and Vitaa also took part in the new French national selection, as composers-writers of “Mamma Mia”, Louka’s song. Unfortunately, Louka ended up last in the Final.
Lisandro Cuxi was born in Cape-Verde, off the African coast, an lived in Portugal for a few years, before moving to France with his single mother when he was a child. Since then, he’s lived near Cannes and has started a singing career. He finished second in The Voice Kids 2015 and he won The Voice: La Plus Belle Voix in 2017.
A few days ago, he revealed that he graduated from high-school, obtaining his Baccalauréat diploma with a “Very Good” mention (meaning his average mark was at least 16/20). In two days, he’ll turn 19.
