Netta to release follow-up to ‘Toy’ next month!
Originally stated for release “late summer” 2018, the long-awaited follow-up to Netta’s Eurovision-winning anthem will be released February 1st! A relatively-unknown singer prior to her appearance on ‘Rising Star’, “Toy” made quite the splash for a debut. After months of teasing and waiting, her second single, titled “Basasa Sababa”, will be released next month. According to Israel Hayom, “Basasa Sababa” has been co-composed by Netta alongside Stav Beger, Avshalom Ariel, both of whom worked on “Toy”. Despite the title, the single is in English, most likely to capitalise on Netta’s growing international fanbase. As such, February 1st is penned as the global release date for the song. It is unknown if it is the “real party song” she teased in an earlier interview. Israel Hayom also confirmed that the music video has already been filmed, in Kyiv, Ukraine. The video was directed by Roy Raz, who allegedly makes a cameo in the video itself alongside his directorial role. Netta’s post-contest achievements As if Netta’s Eurovision victory didn’t build enough pressure, “Basasa Sababa” will be following-up from one of the most successful Eurovision-winning songs ever. To date, the video has achieved over 100 million views on YouTube, breaking the pre-existing record. Since snatching …

The Queen of Spain has arrived!

A stunning debut “Un Nuevo Lugar” has been released as a taster of her debut album, which is still a work in progress according to a recent interview. It was written by herself and Raül Refree.
