Portugal is out of Eurovision 2016 and we’re already dreaming of potential acts for their promised return in 2017. And ya know who springs to mind first? Bruno Correia.
Unkown by almost everyone in the Euro-sphere, he is actually a veteran of Festival da Canção, Portugal’s national selection for Eurovision. Back in 2009 he served as a backing vocalist there, before going on to join RTP’s talent show “Operação Triunfo”. He later took part in broadcaster TVI’s talent show “Rising Star”, slaying the competition and winning a contract with music distributor “Farol Música”.
And now we can see the fruits of his labour. Correia’s first single “Tudo o que eu quero és tu” (All I want is you) recently dropped and it’s a powerful, uptempo tune with surprising depth for the genre. God bless him. And lesbihonest: he’s pretty easy on the eyes. This is one of those rare songs that will make you want to make love on a piano.
His album has a few English-language tracks for all y’all non-Portuguese speakers. We have to give a shout out to his collab with Goran Kay called “My All”. It’s a nice power ballad with a gentle melody and some piano bar realness. His voice is as smooth as sex — listen to THAT VOICE — and will surely give you goosebumps.
Do you think Bruno has what it takes to bring gold to Lisbon in 2017?
