Sometimes good things take time to be appreciated, but finally it happens.
That could be the bigger recap of what happened in the last hours: with a very big satisfaction, SERHAT reached the Billboard Dance Club Songs Charts in USA with his legendary song “I Didn’t Know”, in the version featuring the iconic Martha Wash.
With the original version of “I Didn’t Know”, Serhat represented San Marino at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm. Listening to the new version of the song it’s evident the empathy between the two singers, the audience can feel that Serhat and Martha are enjoying performing together.
Being high in the Billboard USA Dance Club Songs Charts is an amazing goal for a European artist. “I Didn’t Know” reached the position number #30 today, and it is still running in USA, that is maybe surprising for a song finished 12th at the Semi Final of ESC 2016, but surely expected in case of “I Didn’t Know” which was unfortunately underrated especially by the jury voting.
In Eurovision history, this Billboard Charts success never happened since 2006 with Helena Paparizou’s “My Number One”.
“I’ve always believed in that song, I can say a special love from the beginning. I was living the experience at Eurovision as a big responsibility, representing San Marino. Honestly, I was surprised about the results at ESC 2016, but I was totally sure that “I Didn’t Know” will rise , as BBC commentator Mel Giedroyc said when the semi final qualifiers have been announced. I’ve welcomed this good news from Billboard USA. Gladly I’ve made an awareness of Eurovision in USA, which is the biggest music industry in the world.”
Serhat is nowadays working on his new album and lot of surprises are to come.
