Ever since guiding Czech Republic to its best ever result at Eurovision, Mikolas Josef has gone from strength to strength. His follow up single “Me Gusta” won the OGAE Video Contest and placed second in Team Wiwi’s Top Tracks of 2018. He then flew us first class from Prague to “Abu Dhabi” and now the next leg of his journey takes us to “Colorado”.

“Colorado” — Mikolas Josef

“Colorado” packs serious western vibes as Mikolas sings about racing through the state with his special lady. He wants to run away with her and live life while they’re “young and free”. Thematically, “Colorado” is a perfect fit in Mikolas’ discography, feeling like the ideal continuation to “Abu Dhabi”. Mikolas continues his global adventure with his lover and we also want some tickets to wherever they’re going next.

Musically, the evolution is apparent — his post-Eurovision singles have all had unique sounds. Nonetheless, Mikolas does what he does best, nailing slick choreography and oozing major sex appeal. Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model knows what he wants and he will cross any Colorado desert to get it.

The music video also complements the song flawlessly, bringing the western vibes to life. Our deadly duo blaze down a highway, dance through the desert and even find time to hang out in a laundromat in the Centennial State. The product is laced with all shades of Americana, culminating with a group of gospel singers joining Mikolas in the desert.

The strength of “Colorado” lies in its authenticity. It feels very true to what we expect from Mikolas and the whole package is executed smoothly. Between releasing new music and underwear modelling, we don’t know how he has the time to jet off around the world.

“Colorado” — Mikolas Josef lyrics

What if you run away with me?
You know the world is ours to see
Tell me your wildest fantasies, yeah
And come and run away with me

[Pre-Chorus]
So let’s get drunk in Colorado
Taking shots out of the bottle
Just dancing on the tables, young and free, young and free
Feeling like we hit the lotto
Living life without tomorrow
Breaking rules and doing things we shouldn’t be

[Chorus]
I be like
Hey mama, hey mama
Let’s hit that road, mama
We don’t need no money
No you’re all that I need
So what you say mama, say mama?
Let’s set this bed on fire
I just got you and you just got me (x2)

We don’t need no reason why
(Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah)
We don’t need a plane to fly
(No no no)
We already up so high
(We already high)
Here with your body next to mine

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Break it down now
I got you (I got you)
I know I got you baby
And you got me (you got me)
You know you got me I said
I got you (I got you)
And that’s all I need know, yeah
I just got you and you just got me

I got you (I got you, yeah)
And you got me (hey)
You know you got me
What you say mama say mama?
Let’s set this bed on fire
I just got you and you just got me (x2)

My favourite song of him along with “Hands Bloody” and ” Me Gusta”. He deserves all the success he has.

When did he get that signature tattoo on his neck?

Thanks! At least he won’t have to worry about getting them removed one day.

We are so proud of him here in Czech Republic. In my opinion Colorado is better than Acapella. I love Colorado and especially the gospel in the end. And I think he sings higher than in previous songs. I’m looking forward to be at his concert in Prague on 16.12. 😉
