Amir is bringing the party with his new release, “La fête”. The twice MTV European Music Award winner, and sixth-placed finisher at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, wants to make everyone dance this summer with this new single which has already been performed on French television.
In a ‘making of’ video, Amir describes the construction of the song as the song where everyone will “lose it” when it comes on!
“I want it to become the song where at each party with friends, in your house or in a bar or on vacation, you will put it on and that’s when everyone will lose it, throw towels in the air, raise their glasses and dance like crazy.”Amir talking about the creation of “La fête”
Speaking to The Parisien, Amir said he had written this song well before the lockdown to protect against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In fact, last December he had started work on his next album, which is due to be released in the autumn. Amir chose “La fête” to be the perfect song for post-lockdown life as it fits perfectly with everyone’s anticipation to party this summer and to encourage people to still enjoy life despite everything.
Amir returned to La chanson de l’année to première the song on French television, having won the 2019 edition of the competition with “Longtemps”. You can watch him performing at the Final of the competition on the TF1 website until the 20th June.
This year’s competition was won by Vitaa & Slimane with their heartwarming ballad “Avant toi”. Bilal Hassani, who represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, came second with his song “Je danse encore”
