But now dance music is coming back again, and the world is getting smaller and smaller because of the internet – that now sometimes you don’t even have to do much promotion, although obviously it is still very important. But I think that a hit song will always find a way “.

A lot of people write to me and say ‘It’s really emotional and I feel so much for the song because my boyfriend la la la’, which is really nice for me, even though I didn’t write the lyrics. I’ve had a lot of experiences like that so that’s what gives me the nerve to sing it “.
