The Norwegian Eurodance music industry was never big. But a few ones made better tracks than others. KEiiNO now in 2019 is providing quality Eurodance music. But they don’t sing in Norwegian.
Dina with Besatt Went Mainstream
Dina which is the nickname of Caroline Lillian Kongerud released a song in Norwegian named Besatt is a very powerfull Eurodance. It is about being obsessed and to be free. She had a very nice profile and she deserves much more attention than she got.
Caroline as an artist released one album and seven singles in the early 2000s. Together with the Swedish Eurodance queen Drömhus, she made Scandinavians dance. She filled the dancefloors with joy and powerful beats.
Besatt by Dina was released in the middle of 2000s
This song by Caroline was released in 2004. It is a nice tune. Many in Norway thinks of it as a Norwegian trance song but it is wrong. It is Eurodance but not the same type that was made in the 1990s.
Besatt is way too much singing and the beat is really true to Eurodance we think.
Here we have some popularity figures
- 2003 — Dina # 18 – VG-lista
- 2003 — “Bli hos meg” # 1 – VG-lista
- 2003 — “For evig min” # 4 – VG-lista
- 2005 — “Hvis” # 5 – VG-lista
- 2005 — “En sommernatts drøm” # 17 – VG-lista
So she did pretty well in the Norwegians hit lists which is very good we think. But outside of Norway, she isn’t that known at all. So we at Muuuzic decide to put some focus on the Norwegian Eurodance groups too. This is good music that more people around the globe should know about.
Eurodance is a music genre that many artists in Norway did make but the audience didn’t appreciate as much as in other countries.
Some of the Norwegian Eurodance bands such as Infinity got deserved popularity outside of Norway though. Also, Norway never had a Eurodance group that did it well that was pure Norwegian. Aqua had a humongous hit with their Barbie Girl song with Lene being Norwegian but the rest were Danish.
