Hot New Talen Alert: Listen to Beldina 'What Can I Say' [Exclusive First-Listen]


Sweden continues to be a fertile breeding for incredibly brilliant pop and newcomer Beldina is solid proof of that. Smooth, sensual and incredibly soulful, the 22 year-old Stockholm impresses with her new single "What Can I Say" that firmly puts her in pole position for international success. Beldina is most certainly not a stranger to pop aficionados among you. She first rose to fame covering other people's tracks on YouTube, and toured with artists like Faith Evans in Sweden. More recently, she sang the hook on the Childish Gambino "Not Going Back."

Beldina is now writing and recording new music in Los Angeles, and "What Can I Say" is the first result of her California studio sessions. The song is stirring tale of love and heartbreak that is peppered with a downbeat hip hop groove that adds just the right amount of grit to her story. "I hate that I can't love, I hate that I can't touch you any more," she aches. "Don't come to close, I will push you away." It's a fantastic new effort by a very promising new talent that will have you anxious to hear more. Five out of five stars.
