Molly Sandén has cemented herself as an icon of Swedish pop music over the years, and whilst things have been quiet from her in the last few months, we’re now faced with a new track – and it comes as no surprise that we’re absolutely loving it.
The song is called Rygg Mot Rygg, which as you may have guessed, is in Swedish language. This is the first time since 2009 that Molly has released a song in Swedish, and it’s working for her. The track has more of a mature style, and although she had the pop sound perfected, Rygg Mot Rygg builds on the foundations she has built over the years, with killer tracks including our personal favourite, Youniverse.
Listen to the song here:
Molly first hit the scene back in 2006, where she represented Sweden at Junior Eurovision, finishing in 3rd place – which still remains as Sweden’s best result in the Junior contest. After working with a number of Swedish stars after her Junior Eurovision participation, she then took on Melodifestivalen in 2009, and although she reached the final, she finished in last. She participated again in 2012 with the song Why Am I Crying, and she finished in 5th place. She tried for a third time in 2016, with the song Youniverse, but fell short once again, finishing in 6th place. A Melfest return in 2018? Let’s hope!
