Unlikely Eurovision star and one of the biggest surprises this year, ByeAlex, who brought Hungary to top 10 in Malmö with “Kedvesem”, released his new song and video today, entitled “Nekemte”.
Upon its release on Facebook, ByeAlex acknowledges that he is considered to be a hipster, but claims that he is not one, adding, “but actually it doesn’t even matter what I am”. I tend to agree. Who cares about labels? “Kedvesem” was slow to get under our skin, but the song eventually delivered a sweet punch that no one, probably not even the singer, saw coming. In its turn, “Nemkete” sounds like a mature electropop song made by one of the most sought after Western hip bands, and I for one like it. A lot. Plus, the video does the song justice and looks very “now”.
Speaking of likes, ByeAlex ends his Facebook message saying, “You can share it, like it, love it… or hate it. Because haters gonna ‘ hate.” This one’s got a dry sense of humor, eh?
So do you like it or hate it? And… any guesses as to what the song might be about?

This is really interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
I have joined your feed and look forward to in quest of more of your fantastic
post. Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks
I personally think 10th place wasn’t undeserved – he performed well in the final. However, with his semifinal performance, there’s no way he deserved to be in the final in the first place!
Now this is deserving of the tenth spot he achieved.
ByeAlex is my ultimate takeaway artist of 2013, so I’m super happy he’s keeping the musical momentum going. I really like this song and the video clip is awesome in a way that should be pretentious but somehow isn’t.
I am wondering if he’ll ever release a song with a multiple-word title. Not that fussed though – Kedvesem, Csokolom, Nekemte….Hungarian is magic.
