Mikolas Josef has caused quite a stir in recent months. His first single post-Eurovision was released in October. That was “Me Gusta“, which would go on to win the 2018 OGAE Video Contest. It also clocked in at #2 in Team Wiwi’s Top Tracks of 2018. Mikolas is following up that success with the release of his new single “Abu Dhabi”, as well as the accompanying music video.

“Abu Dhabi” — Mikolas Josef

“Abu Dhabi” is about going somewhere exotic for the night and living the high life. In the chorus, Mikolas asks his lover to “pick somewhere exotic, baby we’ll be there tonight”. She chooses the capital of the United Arab Emirates, leading into a signature pop drop tinged with Middle Eastern elements. You can practically taste the baklava in those bars!

Mikolas is looking sharp as usual. Extravagantly dressed with a number of high fashion looks, the Czech dynamo works the choreography to great effect. He is also sporting a platinum blond hairdo and some signature eyewear — something Eurovision fans will know all about. The man knows how to dress and moves with an undeniable swagger, showcasing his unquestionable charisma.

In addition to his incredible wardrobe choices, Mikolas brings some great dance moves. Flanked by his four boys, they look like a group of men on a mission and Abu Dhabi doesn’t know what’s about to hit it.

“Abu Dhabi” lyrics — Mikolas Josef

Woo!
It’s Miki!

Ooh, mama got me act a fool
No, I can never get enough of getting next to you
Ooh, tell me what you’re trying to do?
You get me hot and floating higher than an air balloon

Now we can do that, do that
Shake and roll that, roll that
Play some roulette, roulette with me
And we can do that, do that
Make a duet, duet
We can rule that, rule that
King, queen

You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do that with a finger snap
You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do it all with a finger snap

We can go there, I can take you anywhere you like
Pick somewhere exotic, baby, we’ll be there tonight
Abu Dhabi

The whole world in the palm of our hands
Let’s spin the globe, let it go and we can see where it lands
Drop top, we’ll be counting the stars
Up on the roof, not the real ones until it gets dark

Now we can do that, do that
Shake and roll that, roll that
Play some roulette, roulette with me
And we can do that, do that
Make a duet, duet
We can rule that, rule that
King, queen

You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do that with a finger snap
You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do it all with a finger snap

We can go there, I can take you anywhere you like
Pick somewhere exotic, baby, we’ll be there tonight
Abu Dhabi

So come and ride with me, fly with me
Lie with me, all night if you wanna
Ride with me, fly with me
Lie with me all night if you wanna
So come and ride with me, fly with me
Lie with me all night if you wanna
So come and ride with me, fly with me
Baby, if you want it like that

You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do that with a finger snap
You want it like that, I got it like that
I can do it all with a finger snap

We can go there, I can take you anywhere you like
Pick somewhere exotic, baby, we’ll be there tonight
Abu Dhabi

I have reservations about “exotic” = “Abu Dhabi” (as an Area Studies major), but otherwise a great bop

Eurovision has made it clear that it’s a perfectly fine length for a pop song

This is good quality, although the instrumental needed much more of a drop, but overall it’s well-produced and catchy. I really hope there’s longevity in his career, it looks like there might be.

Parts of it definitely remind me of Lie to Me but only in the best way. Very talented guy.

Another great track from Mikolas. He even directs the music videos. If he was American he’d have a much better shot at getting the acclaim he deserves. Anyhow, their loss, he’s achieved so much regardless – continued success!

I love Mikolas’ music, it’s so sad that Czechia can’t just send him every year…
