WE GOT LOVE (Signed CD Single)
JESSICA MAUBOY RELEASES AUSTRALIA’S EUROVISION SONG
#WE GOT LOVE
Jessica Mauboy will sing her brand new single, ‘#We Got Love’ at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal this May. ‘#We Got Love’ is available to stream, download and signed physical CD single available to pre-order now through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
For many, music is a saviour. It brings people together, lifts them up and transports them away from – or gets them through – hard times. It’s something Jessica Mauboy holds true, and now she’s now taking this message to the world’s biggest music stage at the Eurovision Song Contest with her new single ‘#We Got Love’.
“I love Eurovision,” says Mauboy, who was the first non-European solo artist to perform during one of the show’s intervals in 2014. “I have since I was a little girl watching it with the family in Darwin.”
Mauboy will be taking her A-game into the May event in Lisbon, Portugal, with ‘#We Got Love’. The emotive, uplifting and powerful anthem will challenge anyone to stay in their seat, and the singer’s message is loud and clear: “I know what you must be thinking / That we’re powerless to change things / But don’t give up, ’cause we got love.”
She delivers a soaring vocal performance over thunderous drums and a pulsating pop beat, on an irresistible tune penned by the singer and DNA SONGS – aka Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci. DNA also worked on Dami Im’s 2016 Eurovision hit ‘Sound Of Silence’, which saw the singer land second place.
2018 will mark Australia’s fourth year officially competing at the Eurovision Song Contest, which directly follows a remarkable record of three top ten finishes. Australia’s first entrant in 2015, Guy Sebastian, placed fifth in the competition, Dami Im claimed second place in 2016, and Australia’s most recent representative, Isaiah Firebrace, came in at ninth position last year in Kyiv, Ukraine. Since being formally invited to compete, Australia’s results have put the nation second overall behind Sweden in the last three years, an outstanding accomplishment as a new competitor. The Eurovision Song Contest has run since 1956 when only seven nations participated; and now, this annual event is watched by 200 million people from all across the globe. Its power to unite artists and fans across its five televised continents is, like the music itself, a powerful force. It’s something not lost on Mauboy.
Meanwhile, Jessica’s own music has been that saviour for many, with five top 10 albums, fifteen top 20 singles, 4 ARIA accredited Platinum selling albums and winning two ARIA Music Awards from 24 nominations to her name since she captured the heart of the nation as a 16-year-old on Australian Idol back in 2006. Since then, her songs have been streamed globally over 159 million times and videos viewed globally over 39 million times. She has toured with Beyonce, collaborated with Ricky Martin, Flo Rida, Snoop Dogg and Pitbull; performed for Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and made history being the first non-European solo artist to represent Australia at Eurovision in 2014. Jessica has also starred in Bran Nue Dae, the acclaimed 2012 musical The Sapphires, and in 2016 & 2017, starred in the 2 x 6 part Australian TV series, The Secret Daughter. In 2016 she made ARIA Chart history being the first indigenous woman to achieve three consecutive weeks at #1 for her release of SONGS FROM THE ORIGINAL TV SERIES – THE SECRET DAUGHTER album. Away from the microphone, Jessica uses her high public profile to support community organisations and promote reconciliation, multiculturalism and healthy living.
Now, she’s set to make yet another piece of history – for her career and the country – as she takes ‘#We Got Love’ global. Watch this space.
