He may have flopped at Eurovision, but Tooji’s been on the up ever since – a trajectory which looks set to continue with the release of his latest single, “Money”.

“Stay” was the embodiment of Scandi-pretty-boy pop, but post Baku the Norwegian singer has stood out for his refusal to stick to the formula. His back catalogue is an eclectic mix of genre spanning tracks, covering topics as varied as gang culture and his mother. Saade he ain’t!

“Money” is perhaps his most daring effort to date. A head-spinning mix of the American deep south and Nordic pop sensibilities, it’s effectively a sonic blast direct to the brain. Between the layered vocals, the ringing cash registers, the “money, money” hook and the foot-stomping beat, y’all won’t forget this any time soon. And of course it’s got a message too – the clue is in the title. Now if only he’d hurry up and drop his long awaited album. We’re getting impatient!

Tooji – “Money” Official Audio

Tooji’s First YouTube Vlog (NSFW)

Not content to merely work on new music, Tooji’s now dabbling in the world of YouTube vlogging. He uploaded his first video last week, a cheeky review of “Dragon Age”. Word of warning, you might be best to view this at home… unless your work colleagues are appreciative of computer generated bums and nipples (NSFW).

Tooji – “Money” Lyrics

All we need is money
We slaves are slaves for money

Money, money, money…

I need a new house
I need a new beat

I need to change the colour of my limosine

I need a new face
I need an upgrade
I need a new smile
Matching up my new shade

Be a hot shot
Hit a new scene

Fill my cup, be the cover of a magazine

I need a fresh start
I need a new me
I need to find my way back to reality

Even if I get all the things that I want
Even if I buy all the things that I need

Holler for the dollar (x2)

Even if I get all the things that I want
Even if I buy all the things that I need

Holler for the dollar (x2)

You better work that

Money, money, money…

I need a call out
Shead my heart clean

Break loose want out from this money stream

My happiness but a price tag

Live to work
Work to live
What it all about

Even if I get all the things that I want
Even if I buy all the things that I need

Holler for the dollar (x2)

You better work that

Money, money, money…

You better work that

Money, money, money…

Heya, heya ….

Hey, hey…

All we need is money
We slave

You better work that

Money, money, money…

Yeah we slave
You better work that

Money, yeah

Why was it even necessary to mention Tooji’s “flop” at Eurovision when reviewing his latest song?

Y’all don’t worry about people’s feelings, do y’all? Tooji put in a good performance at Eurovision so he can stand proud. He didn’t get a lot of points but that is no reason for y’all to rub in the salt. Sprinkling compliments amongst the bitching’ doesn’t get y’all of the hook. Try being nice, y’all.
