COMPETES IN THE FIRST SEMI-FINAL OF EUROVISION SONG CONTEST
The Swedish Eurovision Song Contest contestant Tusse releases a French version of his song “Voices.” This is the first time in over 20 years that a Swedish Eurovision entry is released in French. The Congo-Kinshasa born Tusse came to Sweden as an eight-year-old, and French was the first language that he spoke.
“Voices” is written by an impressive list of composers: Anderz Wrethov (Eleni Foureira, John Lundvik, Mohombi), Jimmy Joker (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, Senhit) and former Eurovision Song Contest winners composers Linnea Deb and Joy Deb (Måns Zelmerlöw “Heroes”). The song became the most-streamed track in Sweden, spending multiple weeks at #1 on the Swedish airplay charts and peaking at #1 on Sweden’s Spotify, Apple Music and singles charts.
The Congo-Kinshasa born pop artist came to Sweden as an eight-year-old. He has since managed to reach the semi-finals in Sweden’s Got Talent 2018, win Swedish Idol 2019 and in 2021 win Sweden’s biggest TV-show Melodifestivalen – with the honor of representing Sweden in Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with his song “Voices.” This makes him the only one to ever win both Idol and Melodifestivalen in Sweden, the latter received the most televotes of all time in the show’s history.
