At just 19 years of age, Ardit Çuni has already made a name for himself in his native Albania. He hosts the musical programme “Shine”, which is one of the most viewed shows in the country. And now he has a team of Swedish songwriters on his side. For his new single “Let’s Go” he’s teamed up with Swedish songwriters Christian Oscarsson, Linda Sonnvik and Peter Boström, who co-wrote and co-produced the 2012 Eurovision winning song “Euphoria”.
“I’ve always liked the fresh Swedish sound,” Ardit says. “Working with this team is incredible for developing me as an artist and we also had such fun in the process! ‘Euphoria’ is one of my favourite songs. Sometimes I had to pinch myself but this is happening…I fell for ‘Let’s Go’ on the very first listen.”
