2012 is shaping up to be a huge year for Brazil. A few months ago we’ve already mentioned Michel Teló who’s currently scoring a massive hit with ‘Ai Se Eu Te Pego’ worldwide. (For the review check here).
Following in his footsteps is 23 year old Brazilian singer Gusttavo Lima, who’s single ‘Balada’ is slowly starting to appear in several charts worldwide, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he does a Teló. The singer rose to fame in 2010 when he signed with Brazilian record company Som Livre and has since released 3 albums, of which two live, and 7 singles including ‘Balada’.
It’s a busy time for the young singer. Since January 2012, he embarked on a first international tour with shows in US Latin markets in Florida, and later on in Atlanta (Georgia), Newark (New Jersey) and and Revere (Massachusetts).
Expect a fun, joyful, latin song which we personally find a tad better than the offering made by Michel Teló. The intro is a very poppy 90ies riddle which lasts about 10 seconds before it bursts into its latin feel good rythm. Perhaps a tad more difficult to sing along, although the ‘che che re reche che che re reche che che’ bits help the song massively stand out.
Enjoy the song
No details yet on a UK release but we’ll follow it up and let you know as soon as we hear more.
