Loïc Nottet, Belgium’s Eurovision 2015 singer, has revealed his Eurovision song “Rhythm Inside”. According to RTBF, Loic will reveal the song in its entirity this evening just before the The Voice Belgique airs at 2010 CET. It’s a bit of a homecoming: he finished as runner-up on the show’s last edition.

Philippe Coppens of Sony Music Entertainment, Loïc’s record label, said they sought to distance Loïc from Eurovision stereotypes. “Our first objective was to choose a song that definitely does not sound like a typical Eurovision Song Contest song,” he said. “The world of Loïc Nottet is very far from the contest”.
They’ve certainly done that. Loïc didn’t try to copy his Australian friend SIA, but rather a Kiwi: This has magnficient shades of Lorde! The lyrics suggest he’ll philosophise on good and evil: “We were put here together to discover, the heart that beats within each other, we’re gonna rap-bop-bop-tonight, and if we die tomorrow, what do we have to show for the wicked ways down below?”
Hopefully tonight we will see Loïc sing his song live in The Voice Belgique, but so far: Do you like the song? Or will this different taste of music not work for Loic?
