If Taylor Swift’s “22” is a good choice for a 22nd birthday party, then ByeAlex has just given us a reason to celebrate our 30th!

Hungary’s Eurovision 2013 singer has surprised us yet again with his new single “30”. The song melds so many genres — rock, funk, electronic, and, courtesy of a harmonica, a bit of country-folk. The edgy tune is very ByeAlex. The lyrics speak of modern life and it’s mostly about women who, when they reach 30, become more mature and need real men. That in turn forces the guys to grow up.

And by force we mean force. Some may think the video is a bit sick — women morph into larger-than-life heroines and make the men go SPLAT! But ultimately it’s dark comedy, which ByeAlex serves up very, very well indeed.

ByeAlex came 10th in Malmö and has remained in the public eye. As an author, he published his first novel (and he’ll soon start his second). As a musician he has released tune after tune, and usually to a fair amount of buzz.

What do you think about 30? Love it or hate it? Don’t hold it back!

This is a lot to follow. But then again, so was the video for “Kedvesem”, which was spectacular and the biggest reason he finished 10th in 2013.

My hunky baby Kallay Saunders Andras with his *My Baby* was the winner in the juries on the hungarian A Dal 2013 but he lost in televoting to ByeAlex..

Kallay is not only one of the hottest guys i have seen in Vision but one of the most beautiful men in general that my eyes have seen! <3
What a babe! <3
Would love to be his Julio & him my Romeo <3 hehe 🙂

I loved Hungary’s entry this year.. <3 Was my 5th most liked among the 40 of Vienna <3
*Wars 4 Nothing* is one of my most favorite songs of Hungary in the Vision <3
Boggie shined in Vienna's Vision & deserved a better place..
Her song might seemed too ''silly'' for many but i like this kind of sweet ballads that sound so softly to my ears.. <3

It was a very positive year 4 Hungary in the Vision.. <3

His visionary song in Malmo’s Vision was cute & nice..
He did really good with reaching the 10th place..
The music especially of *Kedvensem* was relaxing & beautiful..

Good 4 him that he managed to win the televoting in hungarian NF A Dal & represent Hungary as he was voted just 4th in the juries..
This year Boggie also did not win in the juries in A Dal 2015 & finished 2nd behind Adam’s boring song…Thankfully she managed to beat him in hungarian televoting & be the one that would go to Vienna’s Vision instead..
