After revealing a short snippet of the song earlier today, Loïc Nottet has now released the full video for the Belgian Eurovision 2015 entry, “Rhythm Inside“. Filmed at the BlitzWork studios in London, the video’s theme focuses on opposites and fighting conceptions, with shots including two young girls: one a beauty queen, the other playing with dinosaurs. And of course, it also features a soaking wet Loïc at numerous points. Which we’re totally not complaining about.

The song itself is also super modern and definitely seems to be influenced by the likes of Lorde. We have to say: we are loving this one, y’all. Could Loïc bring the contest back to Belgium for the first time since 1987? Watch the video below with the Rhythm Inside lyrics also:

Our reactions

Rhythm Inside lyrics – Loïc Nottet

Listen to the sound of thunder
Rolling in the soul down under
Far beneath the skin, it rumbles
Step to the step of the drum that rolls inside

Be you enemy or lover
We are put here to discover
The heart that beats within each other
We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight

And if we die tomorrow
What’ll we have to show?
For the wicked ways down below
The rhythm inside is telling us
We can fly tomorrow
On the beautiful wind that blows
On a cosmic track, love attack
I’m gonna get that rhythm back

Be you enemy or brother
We were put here to discover
The heart that beats within each other
We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight

And if we die tomorrow
What’ll we have to show?
For the wicked ways down below
The rhythm inside is telling us
We can fly tomorrow
On the beautiful wind that blows
On a cosmic track, love attack
I’m gonna get that rhythm back

We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight
We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight
We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight
We’re going to ra-pa-pa, ra-pa-pa
We’re gonna ra-pa-pap tonight

And if we die tomorrow
What’ll we have to show?
For the wicked ways down below
The rhythm inside is telling us
We can fly tomorrow
On the beautiful wind that blows
On a cosmic track, love attack
I’m gonna get that rhythm back

I am positively surprised. Even though I don’t listen to such a genre of music, this song is very unique. I love when some new styles are added to Eurovision. The videclip has been the best of all so far. After so many years of mediocre songs (I have to confess that my only Belgian songs which I like are the ones from 2013 and …1986) such a huge improvement. Well done Belgium! With some many similar songs in terms of style this year “Rhytm inside” can reach even TOP 5.

I’d support him. My bet is that he’ll have no problems in qualifying and that many might appreciate his song (just by seeing the comments/ratings in different websites). I don’t care how he sounds like and how his song sounds like.

Is this a Lorde’s song? … It’s a copy. I don’t like it sorry.

Let’s sum up this years’ comparisons:

Loïc Nottet – Lorde
Elina Born & Stig Rästa – The Common Linnets
Maria Elena Kyriakou – Conchita Wurst
Molly Sterling – Birdy
Aminata – FKA twigs
Ann Sophie – Lena
Måns Zelmerlöw – David Guetta
Isa – Taylor Swift
Ellen Benediktsson – Loreen
Jenny Langlo – Lana Del Rey
Lara Lee – Sia
Tudor Turcu – t.A.T.u.
Bojana Stamenov – Adele (maybe not musical-wise)
Il Volo – Il Divo
Electro Velvet – Waffle advert

Did I miss something? There certainly are a lot.

Lorde’s minimalist production style is inspired by a similar minimalist style that’s been a thing in underground hip hop. Lorde is just the first person to use this sound in a mainstream pop song.

I think the introduction of “Rhythm Inside” sounds very similar to the intro of “Royals”, but the rest of the song could not realistically be directly compared to Lorde, any more than any other modern minimalist pop track.

Actually, we do not have to assume Lorde is wholly original, only the mixture of her inspirations is. And while Loic has a different voice, his style os singing sounds a bit similar to me, but that is not my point. Inspired songs does not contain the same musical elements as the original, nor do they sound vaguely familiar. Inspired songs only create the feelong ‘hey this is as cool as …’

Alex
Guest
Alex

This isn’t a ripoff in any significant sense… keep in mind that we’re assuming that Lorde’s instrumental style is wholly original – who can really be sure of that? And there’s a pretty marked difference between Loic’s vocal style and Lorde’s. If inspiration = ripoff then we’re going down a pretty unsteady path here.

Aron F.
Guest

It’s really not that hard to be original. A lot, and I mean a lot of artists can manage. They are just rarely seen in Eurovision. Then again, there is a difference between mediocre, non-original pop songs (like Unbroken) and rip-offs like this one.

It’ll be really interesting to see how this is staged tho, I can’t really imagine any dance moves for these and I can’t see how this would be pulled off if he just stood at a microphone. And also, why the hell does it even matter if he sounds similar to someone? You people are so annoying with that honestly do you know how hard it is to sound unique and most artists try their best but its never good enough for any of you, like jfc no one has a monopoly of a certain sound/genre so get over it…people… Read more »

Y’all too busy to compare all entry to other popular song, it’s so annoying to see your comment like “this sounds too similar like lorde, etc” just stop please. Enjoy the music or hate it, not every popular artis make a patent of their style, it’ s not their trademark. C*nts

The ESC crowd hates copycats, and this is more than just similar to Lorde’s style. I do not predict much success.

Not bad at all, Belgium… Should make the final since semi 1 is pretty weak anyway.

I love it! I will never argue with modern music making its way into eurovision. I could see it as something that I’d listen to anyway sop that’s always a sign of a good song, also Loic is cute but that’s not important

Loving this song, thank you Belgium, for something distinctive and interesting. I think we’ll be seeing him and Aminata battle it to the death on the final, good thing they’re not in the same semi.

Robyn Gallagher

I could really do without the song’s introduction – it’s uncomfortably and boringly too similar to “Royals”, but everything after 10 seconds is amazing. Despite all the shouty ladies, 2015 is shaping up to be a really good and diverse year.

Wow, wow, wow. I hate the video. I mean HATE the video. But love the song. I mean LOVE the song. I can’t even predict anymore who will do well this year, the lineup is too deep. This song should be in the top ten, although I’m not sure who to displace. If we can expand the final to 27 because Australia wants in can we expand it to 35 because the songs are too incredible this year?
