Dima Bilan—winner of Eurovision 2008, Russian-language music icon, and Kristina Pelakova’s boyfriend—has dropped some new music. But this time he isn’t delivering it on his own. He has joined forces with Andrey Cherny to form a new electric music duo called Alien24.

Apparently Dima has been working on this for two years. He actually loves electro music, despite performing an R&B-influenced ballad in 2008. Alien24’s debut single “Music Is In My Soul” is full of digi-accents and electro backing.

I’m a fan of Dima’s work, but this song just doesn’t hit the spot for me. I think it’s left some of his other fans a bit cold too. The song has just 60,000 views on YouTube (at the time of writing) despite the fact Dima has over 750k followers on Twitter.

Should Dima continue his work with Alien24, or is this making him more of an alien to the R&B fans he’s already courted? Comment below and let us know.

Music Is In My Soul lyrics — Alien24

Yes, I choose no way they say that they do
Yes, I’ll do it myself you won’t move me off
Off my way, no you can’t move cause I am
Wait, oh, wait, baby

I can do my best if you ask me to
I can do my best for you
So look at me made of it,
It’s just the way I am

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

My feet lose the ground look, I run to you
Like the speed of sound you want to hide from me
It’s no way, no you
Can’t hide cause it makes us closer

Listen to the beat like a heartbeat
Just Listen to the beat in you
You Begin to move to the groove like it’s
Just the way you are

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

You want to hide from me
Just a part of me

Listen to the beat

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

Music is in my soul
No one can’t change it all
Can’t deny it’s my life
Just a part of me

Dima Bilan is a great singer and he is my favourite Eurovision winner since 2004. Believe it or not, when I told my Dad’s tenant Yevgeny from Daugavpils about my new show I actually made reference to Dima Bilan and he was surprised that I knew Dima Bilan and he also told me that Dima and Sergei Lazarev are the biggest stars in Russia and the Former USSR.

The song reminds me of “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities.
