ADRIAN GAXHA – NGJYRA E KUQE
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
A video that is just exploding in Albania at the moment with nearly 500,000 views in just a few days. Adrian Gaxha’s “Ngjyra e Kuqe” is notable for two reasons. First, the production value is high for an Albanian clip. Second, the song features on the hook a male child instead of a vampy vixen. Yes, Floriani is a child! Is this a future music trend? Not sure, but at least it’s different.
