Anton Ewald’s latest track “This Could Be Something” premiered on the expressen.se website last week. All these days later, I am still cooling down: This imagery is hot. For this autotune dance track, Anton enlisted the help of Danish superstar Medina.With seven Danish number ones to her name, she knows the score—and, as this video shows, she also knows how to get a response from Anton. At 02.35, he whispers, ‘..Baby, let me f**k you’. Fortunately, Anton delivers the lyric innocently enough to avoid a parental advisory label. Medina smoulders on the screen next to Anton, who butches it up in leather. Their interaction is believable, and as a duo, they work well together.

Sadly, the track is too lightweight to make an impact on its own. It’s full of overcooked coos and generic EDM beats. It doesn’t stand out from the bargain bin of dance-pop offerings that currently flood the market. And I’m sorry: these lyrics need to go: “This could be something, ooh ohh, Baby close up and lay here, Let me watch your naked body up against mine.” Cheap and predictable.

It’s unfortunate that Anton, an amazing dancer, continues to rely on his movement rather than his voice or fresh material. In the last two years, he has made a mark on the Swedish national pre-selection with “Begging” and “Natural“, advancing to the finals both times. Prior to this, he featured as a backup dancer in the 2009 and 2012 editions of the contest. But to properly take centre stage he needs to combine music with all the motion.

Anton doesn’t take kindly to criticism. However, I hope that this review helps steer him in the right direction. With his killer looks and his badass dance steps, he could have a bright future ahead of him. He just needs to start choosing his material more carefully.

Rating: 2/5

“This could be something lyrics” — Anton Ewald

Let the tip of my fingers
run down your body like a rose petal falling off
softly as your moan lingers
I can hear you’re lovin every touch, you want it all

I don’t know you, but I’m so attached
I’m free fallin, yes I’m fallin and I’m fallin fast
Let this moment be, just let it last
I could do this with you forever

This could be nothing
(All I want is you)
This could be something
Oooh oooh
Just tonight baby
(All I want is you)
Something just maybe
ooohh oooh

whoaa whoa whoa ohhh x3

(All I want is you)
This could be something, ooh ohh
Baby close up and lay here
let me watch your naked body up against mine
softly as your …. lingers
In this silent room I see the screaming in your eyes
I don’t know you, but I’m so attached
I’m free falling, yes I’m fallen and I’m fallin fast
Let this moment be, just let it last
I could do this with you forever

This could be nothing
(All I want is you)
This could be something
Oooh oooh
Just tonight baby
(All I want is you)
Something just maybe
ooohh oooh
whoaa whoa whoa ohhh
all I want is you
This could be something
ooh ohh

Baby let me touch you
Baby let me touch you
Baby let me hold you
Baby let me hold you
Baby let me love you
Baby let me f.. you
ooohh

This could be nothing
(All I want is you, all I want is you)
Just tonight baby
(All I want is you)

This could be nothing
(All I want is you)?
This could be something
Oooh oooh
Just tonight baby
(All I want is you)
Something just maybe
ooohh oooh
whoaa whoa whoa ohhh
all I want is you
This could be something
ooh ohh
