Isa was beyond fierce at Melodifestivalen 2015, blasting out of her Semi-Final direkt til final with ‘Don’t Stop‘ and landing in seventh place with 56 points at the final. 

Now, Isa is back and turning it out tribal style. “Drum & Bass” fizzes with attitude, thumping militaristic beats and stuttering synths fused together into a much stronger R&B sound than ultra bubblegum ‘Don’t Stop’.

“Why should I play it safe, when I want insane, I’ll let you break my heart just to feel the ache,” she flirts over the bouncy strings before synths thump in for the triumphant chorus. The message is uplifting, strong and showcased with serious originality.

It’s difficult to imagine ‘Drum & Bass’ of any other recent Melodifestivalen alum. In Isa Sweden might have found its own hybrid Ariana Grande  / Jessie J.

The track just oozes swagger. Homegirl is far more than those blinged out trainers, y’all!

With this single out and her new EP, the only other thing we want from Isa is her back at Melodifestivalen next year to slay the pack.

Score: 4/5

I should start copying Mario’s fantic-ness…

Sadly I can’t hear the song but yall make it song so good and she should definitely do Melfest 2016. Maybe something by Thomas G:son. I think ABBA is still secretly a group and they write songs and give them to Thomas G:son.

The videoclip was bertter than the song itself…
Much energy & sparkles to have vivid choreography from Isa & the dancers..
She is very pretty..
Now she is 17…She has many years/decades ahead of her..
Who knows what the future will offer her & how her future career will be like..
She is still so much young…12 years younger than me..
If she changes her mind & leaves from music she can do modelling or become an actress..

She should tone down the makeup a bit, makes her look 27 instead of 16.
The track is just a hot mess that screams cultural appropriation to me.

Björn Kristian of ABBA was born the same date with Isa’s birthday coicidentally… Hmm…. Bjorn is making a restaurant tavern that will open next year in January in Stockholm.. It will have live music.. I think that it would be ideal if ABBA decided to make their GreAtY comeback next year now that Sweden will be the host home of our Vision.. 🙂 Its their last chance to reunite even only for the gold celebration of Sweden’s hosting the contest.. They should record at least one brand new song together! <3 🙂 Bjorn is 70, Agnetha is 65, Anni-Frid is… Read more »

Oh….Her rainbow coloured fur is GreAtY <3
I loved her pinky fur too <3

Ellen Benediktson must not really liked Isa….These girls are exactly the same type…
If we put them together into a room & then lock them inside they would fight like wild tigers cats & only one of them would survive to tell the story… 😛 hehe

Oh our one & only fabulous ISA! <3 😀
I just adore her <3

I can see her taking part in this upcoming next Melodifestivalen 2016..
Who knows…Maybe she will find her way up to the top & will win and YES she will represent Sweden in her country's home Vision 🙂
Bravo to her if she does this..

Diamonds are girl's best friend but Isa is a diamond herself <3

P.S. And NOOOO….Her *Don't Stop* bubblegum pop anthem was not at all rip off plagiarism case of Taylor Swift' *Shake It Off*… 🙂
