Gianluca and friends may have given us cause to swoon in Vienna, but Marco Mengoni will always be the original Italian stallion. Ever since his Eurovision 2013 appearance, the suave singer has proven to be a dependable source of heart-felt, Mediterranean ballads – until now!
“Io Ti Aspetto (I’m Waiting For You)” is a marked change in direction for Marco. While not quite in Calvin Harris or Avicii territory, there are definitely enough beats here to tempt you onto the dancefloor – “L’essenziale” this is not. And no need to worry that he’s sold out. The vocals are still trademark Mengoni. We should probably view this as a welcome summer-time break, rather than a permanent shift.

The music video contains some surprises too – for once Marco actually cracks us a smile, making us love him all the more. There’s lots of kissing and partying and sunshine. Marco gets wet. All his beautiful friends get wet. We get wet… ok, time to stop and let y’all check it out for yourselves. Do you like his new sound? Let us know below.
