United Kingdom: Michael Rice releases new single Somebody as his follow up to Bigger Than Us

United Kingdom: Michael Rice releases new single Somebody as his follow up to Bigger Than Us

Michael Rice

It’s been six months since Michael Rice was awarded last place at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel but that result hasn’t squashed his ambition. Now he returns with his new release, Somebody.

For quite some time now Michael has been teasing on his Facebook page that a new song was on its way. Finally today, the song gets its full debut and the initial reactions on social media are very positive.

There is no doubt that Michael is an excellent singer, having already proven his vocal abilities by winning the All Together Now competition in the United Kingdom, which led to him being selected as the United Kingdom’s Eurovision entrant in 2019 with the song Bigger Than Us.

Michael describes Somebody as being a very personal song to him. In the simple lyric video he performs in a white polo top, while grey and red smoke bellow around him. The song is a powerful ballad which starts quiet and simple before bursting out into an anthemic ballad.

Take a listen to the song in the video below and see what you think.

The video for the new song Sex With Your Ex was directed by Renata Raksha while the sultry R&B style song was written by Roel Henricus Rats, Marcia Thadea, Angele Sondeijker, Ben Cassorla and Alexandra Veltri.

In the video Tamta is joined by four female dancers gyrating along to the music in the rain in a studio.Up to that point Tamta poses for the camera in a variety of costumes showcasing the fashion icon that she is. The video starts with a red background and Tamta and her dancers are all in white ready to go.

In a silver coat it looks as if Tamta is enjoying the streets of Miami. Depending on your opinion the song is way too short at just over 2 minutes long.

Take a look below and see if this video will be on Replay for you for a while.

Urban Symphony broke the unlucky streak in 2009 when Randajad placed 6th. Ott Le[land equalled that position in 2012 with Kuula.

In the last seven years Estonia have failed to qualify three times, yet has also ended up in the Top 10 twice with Elina Born and Stig Rasta with Goodbye To Yesterday in 2015 and Elina Nechayeva with La Forza in 2018.

Last year Victor Crone placed 20th with the song Storm.
