In a few days, Eurovision Song Contest in Kiew, Ukraine will be held on 9th, 11th and 13th of May. First two semi-finals and then the grand final on Saturday 13th of May. Loreen is one of those artists that got known thru Eurovision Song Contest worldwide and if there is an artist that deserves more honour than any other Eurovision artists out there, then it must be Loreen. A Swedish pop singer and music producer. She managed to win at Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan with her entry “Euphoria”. But that wasn’t just that! Here we want to give you some interesting info about one of Europe’s angels singing excellent in everyway. She didn’t only changed Eurovision forever, but also manages to turn music to art for many new artists after she managed to win! Read on…
She was born in Stockholm, Sweden with parents from Morocco, Africa
Before her worldwide hit “Euphoria”, Loreen managed to change her life completely by release lot’s of nice songs already. Loreen became known to the public, thru the Swedish IDOL, which she almost lost in 2004. Loreen or Lorine Zineb Nora Talhaoui, which is her beautiful name was raised in a liberal Muslim household. She is however a non-practising as an adult, and try to move boundaries of what women can show at the stage.
Early in her life, Loreen moved to Västerås. There she grew up, and because of that she calls Västerås her hometown. So, we can all say that she is Swedish as she was born in Sweden. Her Morocco parents gave her amazing skin and together with her Scandinavian living. She have become what she is today. An amazing artist that knows how to combine music and art on the stage.
“The Snake” and “My Heart Is Refusing Me” moved her beats by beats!
At first, she got to be known thru her song “The Snake” after her IDOL performance, which she did in co-operation with Rob’n Raz. This was a quite different music genre from what the new Loreen music genre would become. However! It wasn’t until Melodifestivalen 2011, that Loreen actually became quite known worldwide. Here she appeared with her song “My Heart Is Refusing Me”. A very powerful song that hurts and heals at the same time.
The song was released on 11th of March 2011, and managed to became a hit on the Swedish Singles Chart, after she didn’t manage to enter the final in Melodifestivalen 2011. Here is this song, with some memories from her childhood? The musicvideo is really nicely done etc!:
In 2011, she also released a song called Sober that had much more beats into it than before. Many people still loves it and same with us.
Media Never Forgets Loreen – This artist changed Eurovision forever!
Most of the Eurovision artists that wins the contest, usually manages to get only one or two days of fame, and then the media forgets them for some unknown reason. But for Loreen, this is not the case. Even now in 2017, I manage to hear her song “Euphoria” played on local radio stations here in Oslo, Norway. And that’s pretty strong, because our Rybak which won Eurovision with his Fairytale isn’t played at all and he got like record high points ever in Eurovision Song Contest?
Here you have Loreen performing her song Euphoria Live in Baku 2012
This trance pop song moved Europe so much! What a fantastic performance by her, which will be remembered by generations to come. But in this article, I want to focus further on some of her songs after Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan also! Because they were many and excellent. Also, this years song by her named Statements should have won, but once you deliver something more “artistic” feel to it. Then something happens, or the voting system in Swedish Melodifestivalen program on TV failed totally. Who knows???
Amazing performance with her song We Got The Power at Eurovision 2013
A queen within many types of Music genre
At Eurovision Final 2013 in Malmö, she did this extension performance with songs “We Got The Power” and “Euphoria”. However, she also managed to release a song called Heal in 2013 that is still a very nice song. It is much slower and intense than her previous songs. Then we have “Jupiter Drive” from 2014 is quite different. The instruments are powerful and it’s just amazing. Loreen manages to heal everyone with her voice either on stage or from albums that is something totally different in style.
This song is a perfect example on how much power her voice and tones are. This song above is so much different from Euphoria it can get. So, she manages to show that she can do lot’s of genres and not only be “that trance and pop” singer. And this is the reason why we call her for a queen, because she handles so many different tones and music genres. She can also be Very emotional at the stage, which shows that her songs means something to her and that she isn’t just another pop artist.
There are so many songs made by this queen, that digging every song up is problematic in such article like this. However, we need to address some more songs forr you!
Loreen – Fire Blue is yet another powerful song with her powerful Voice
She manages to nail everything perfectly here also. This is just yet another powerful song by her that proofs that she doesn’t need to be on Eurovision to proove that she is a amazing angel spirit giving her voice to the world. Thru our article about her, I want to address how much power her music got. This is an amazing artist from Sweden! We LOVE you LOREEN! Because of your voice, your looks, your style, your way of healing souls worldwide and your fight for giving female artists a bigger freedom at the stage.
