For months Sergey Lazarev was looking for his only one among the millions of fans around the globe who loved his explosive track “You Are the Only One”. It placed first place in the Eurovision 2016 televote. Now, just hours before his performance at Stockholm Pride, he has gone back to his roots and dropped a Russian version of his entry. Sergey works in every tongue.
The new title of the song is “Let the Whole World Wait”. We had a listen and the lyrics tell the following story. Sergey needs his one and only and without this love his heart will stop. He’s been searching for it for so long and now that he has it, he wants the whole world to wait while he lives this magical moment to the fullest.
You may ask “What happened to the infamous thunder and lightening?” — well… It’s not THAT exciting, but it still has that superhero vibe. In the Russian version Sergey emphasizes that no matter what disaster happens — if all the volcanos erupt or the entire earth is flooded with rain — he will still hold the hand of his love.
What do you think of the Russian version of the song? Would it have made the same impact at Eurovision? Let us know in the comments below!
