Just one breath away from the end of 2017, the “Golden Boy” of Israel, Nadav Guedj sees the release of his first single written in Hebrew language. The song Ulay Nedaber (Maybe we’ll talk) was unveiled this Christmas week together with a music video, filmed in a hotel.
Making the surprise with a mid-tempo sound
Lately, Nadav has been away from the spotlight because of his compulsory military service in Israel. However, he is now coming back with a mid-tempo love song which is expected to make sense within his country and beyond, despite the language.
Ulay Nedaber has already reached more than 103,000 views on YouTube. The video’s director is Elad Wiessman, who had also assisted Nadav’s Eurovision 2015 bid. Here you may enjoy the young singer’s new single:
In parallel with his professional footprints, Nadav Guedj hasn’t stopped sharing some highlights from the army on Instagram. He doesn’t seem not to be having a good time there, does he?
Nadav Guedj at Eurovision
The young artist Nadav Guedj was crowned the winner of the The Next Star competition in 2015, which has been the Israeli artist selection mechanism over the last few years. Following his victory, the national broadcaster IBA announced that he would be flying to Vienna with the song Golden boy, written by Doron Medallie.
Quite an up-tempo pop song, Golden boy managed to become a successful hit and receive high positions in the European charts, whereas it later saw a lot of remixes and covers released.
At Eurovision, the Israeli delegation made a spectacular stage appearance, with Nadav accompanied by 3 dancers and 2 backing vocalists, with the 2017 entrant Imri Ziv being among them. They easily qualified to the Grand Final of the contest (3rd with 151 points), where they finally ended up 9th with 97 points.
