lindita halimi now

Lindita Halimi will sing “World” — a ballad with a subtle rock edge — at the Eurovision Song Contest. But this Kosovar beauty has more tricks up her always turned-out sleeve.

As she prepares for promotional gigs all over Europe, she’s managed to write, record and release “NOW” — a follow-up to her 2017 Eurovision entry….before Eurovision 2017 even starts!

Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, the US-based Albanian beauty explained the origins of the song.

“It all started with me being playful in the studio. We were supposed to work on something else — then I pop outside for a phone call. During the chat, I hear all these bumping beats in different studio rooms, and I asked the producer  to create that party vibe. He said, ‘Oh, is that what you want now?’ Right there on the spot he created the beat and moments later I wrote the hook, ‘OKAY, OKAY, YOU REALLY REALLY DIDN’T KNOW ME BUT YOU KNOW ME NOW.'”

“It was a little flavor, an experiment in another direction, but in one day it registered over 30,000 YouTube hits. So now I have decided to create a music video for it, but that will be shot after Eurovision. I am thankful to all those who have played the song and enjoyed it. A lot of people imagine me as their little village girl, but I am all grown-up now.”
As humble as ever, sweet Lindita made sure to praise producer Blame Ronnie and the song’s co-author G Mula. They gave to her and she is giving back, explaining that the track wouldn’t have been possible without them.

The track may be adult, but it connects with younger audiences. The video concept remains a secret at this stage, but we’ll be sure to tease some more information out of Lindita when we catch up with her during her promo tour.

“NOW” LYRICS — Lindita

Lindita can blow her own trumpet, toot her own horn, sing her praises, play the nymphet or the hoe from the hood in the name of the art of self-promotion, but ‘World’ is not a game changer for Albania.

I’m sorry, but this song is too monotone and boring. Her beautiful voice is lost in autotune. I don’t like this. I get her point, but she deserves better production.

@ mocosuburbian – wut? Ain’t nothing wrong with urban music, I just said this song is urban music done badly. It sounds like they gave her a track at some rap battle and she has to sing over it.

I love Lindita. This track cracks me up laughing; I see what she did there. 😀 I’m sure Nicki would be honoured! 😛
I hope Lindita finds her way – she’s a great singer and personality. 🙂

alol @polegend godgarina using ‘urban’
does it make u uncomfortable because it’s not a melodramatic european ballad bc there are songs well worse than this on the radio in DC

Okay that’s lowkey tragic… what kind of cheap imitation of the American urban radio hits from 2014. Summer smash? I think not – and the same applies for all seasons.
