[FIRST LISTEN] Eric Saade "Hotter Than Fire" Featuring Dev


Eric Saade should absolutely be no stranger to the Europop lovers among you. The Swedish singer has been ruling the pop charts in Sweden with his debut album, titled "Saade Vol 1," which includes the hit singles "Popular" and "Hearts In The Air." In fact, Saade is the best-selling singer in Sweden this year who moved over 50,000 albums units to date.

Today, the pop heartthrob unleashed his much-anticipated new single "Hotter Than Fire" that is taken from his forthcoming new LP, aptly-titled "Saade Vol 2." This new pop ditty includes none other than global chart sensation Dev who adds some welcome spunk, sizzle and sex appeal to Saade's polished pop sound.

Internationally, Dev has been an in-demand feature vocalist on other people's songs. The Bay Area songstress sang the hooks on recent tracks by Solveig, Guetta, JLS and now Saade. These high-profile features are a perfect way for Dev to build out has sassy brand of pop while also promoting her own "In The Dark" that is holding steady on the top of the Billboard dance chart and is gaining momentum overseas.

Set to a grinding synth riff that sounds somewhat familiar, "Hotter Than Fire" is a straight up, no frills pop production that is "about dressing up for the night" and "heading straight to the bar" to "dance, dance." It's an instantly catchy number that will undoubtedly fly up the charts in Europe and solidify Saade's promise as one of the brightest new Europop stars.
