ira losco one in a million 2018

She’s the queen of Maltese pop music who was Eurovision runner-up in 2002. Her return to Eurovision in 2016 resulted in her winning the jury vote in her semi-final. Since then, she has become a mother and collaborated with a rap star.

More recently, the two-time Eurovision veteran Ira Losco is marking her 15 years in the music industry with a double album scheduled for release in May 2018.  “One In A Million” — the first single from the forthcoming LP — dropped this week.

It’s a poignant piano-led ballad that pulsates with an EDM beat. Produced by her longtime collaborator Howard Keith, the modern production is pared back and allows Ira’s vocals to take centre stage. A raspy spoken word segment signifies the bridge of the song. Beneath the subtle touches there is drama!

Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, Ira explains:

‘My 15 year journey has been an exciting one. I love rediscovering myself, writing about and living experiences  with fresh eyes, an open mind and above all, with new found knowledge and maturity. My Eurovision experience in 2016 was different in many ways, and I wanted to reinvent myself another time after that. This double album has giving me the opportunity to bring an all new Ira Losco onto the airwaves.’ 

ONE IN A MILLION ( Lyrics ) –Ira Losco

I would’ve loved you so much longer if you never took me home
I would’ve liked you so much better if you didn’t pick up your phone
And I would’ve sworn that we’d be the ones on those newsfeed walls
But I ran away, I didn’t wanna stay, and now ima start over again

You’re one in a million, Am I dreaming ?
I’ve never felt this before way before
Send me an angel (to watch over)
Like a night star I adore
You’re one in a million, so priceless

You’re Like a diamond in the rough
Skipping a heartbeat
Starting over
And it’s beating to the drum

You didn’t flirt with all my friends….. I didn’t like you even more
Serenaded me, pulled out a chair
And then you held the door
Cause I would’ve sworn that you’d be the one who kept it together now that’s gone
But I ran away, I didn’t wanna stay, and now ima start over again

You’re one in a million,
Am I just dreaming ?
I’ve never felt this way before
So Send me an angel to watch over
Like a night star I adore
You’re one in a million, you’re so priceless
You’re Like a diamond in the rough
You skipping a heartbeat
Starting over
And it’s beating to the drum

Should I stand here right beside you … Waiting for the stars to align ?
Should I go on, forget, leave without a sign…
I’m addicted to the dysfunctional unit that is “us”
We are an army our hearts beating as one

You’re one in a million,
Am I dreaming ?
You’re like a diamond in the rough
Skipping a heartbeat
Starting over
And it’s beating to the drum

Cute song. Her intentions on ‘the’ pronounciation are a bit distracting but it won’t stop me from checking that big-mac of release for pearls.
