Verka Serduchka, one of the brightest Eurovision stars, has launched a four-track EP “Sexy”. With the new album, Verka is celebrating life, individuality and diversity through partying, dancing and drinking a lot of champagne.
Forget everything about nowadays problems and worries, open a glass of cold champagne, put a smile on your face and get ready to party. Those are the headlines for Verka Serduchka new EP, which was released today. The album is called Sexy and consists of four tracks which all together try to bring some happiness and positivity in 2020 – a year that hasn’t been too kind to the humankind so far.
The first track, Swedish Lullyby, is a contemporary pop song that addresses people who are dealing with self-doubt, trying to encourage them to stop to hate themselves and celebrate life through all the ups and downs.
The second track, Sexy, includes champagne too. It is a sensual, heavy dance song with the oriental vibes that persuades you to lose control and enjoy the life.
You’re feeling sexy, you’re feeling hot, bring in the champagne, let’s make it pop, we need no haters, we’re born to dance, all the way from Tokyo and back to Amsterdam.
Lyrics to ‘Sexy’ – Verka Serduchka
The third track, Disco Kicks has obviously been inspired by the 80’s disco music. The song celebrates all genders and every person’s right to be what they want to be no matter what other people may think or say.
The fourth track, Make It Rain Champagne, is, just like Sexy, a mix of the modern pop og and oriental music. It is a song about living in the moment and making each moment of your life memorable, even when you for instance “are sitting in the bath tub, riding on the train or waiting at the bus.
