Introducing: Eric Saade
Eric Saade may not be new to the pop block, but he’s new around these parts. So bare with us as we’re late to the party on this one. We just can’t help but become enamored with the Swedish pop singer thanks to his new single ‘Wide Awake’ featuring Gustaf Noren.
In his short twenty five years, Saade has accomplished quite a bit for himself. Getting his start with the boy band What’s Up!, he began to pursue a solo career in 2009. From there, he won prestigious award after prestigious award and managed to compete in Melodifestivalen, the Swedish qualifier for Eurovision, twice. It was the second time in 2011 that really brought him to another level and brought him all the way to Eurovision where he finished third.
Since then, he’s released three albums and is looking to set up a fourth record later this year with ‘Wide Awake’ setting the tone for everything. No doubt that this breezy anthem that captures the feeling of a summer crush will garner Eric more fans before his next album drops.
