The team at WiwiBloggs.Com loves a hot couple: it’s a matter of double our pleasure, double our fun! So you know we were excited to learn that Anggun, our favorite contestant of Asian descent at ESC 2012, has teamed up with Danish hottie and 2009 Eurovision contestant Niels Brinck to release a special duet of her song “Echo (You and I).”
We applaud Anggun’s marketing flare. She’s moved beyond her lip-synching tour of Europe, and is now expanding her brand through Scandinavia by connecting herself to a Danish artist. Perhaps Niels is trying to make in-roads in France, too. The naughty part of us hopes they shared a few memorable flares with Niels during recording sessions. That may or may not have happened. But as an added bonus Anggun’s team have supplied us with some new English-language lyrics: “Losing you/ Losing I/ In the night/ We’re falling apart/ Someday beyond this path/ Someday I’l get you back.”
Anyway, we’re not sure if their voices actually blend that well. He’s got a very folksy-country sound. It sounds extra gritty paired with Anggun’s smoky voice. What do you think? Is the duet better than the original??
