A spectacular new entry in the Flemish single charts this week: Xandee hits the number 1 spot with 1 Life! The international interest for the Belgian Eurovision song keeps growing and a video will be shot soon.
For the first time ever, a Eurosong hits the number 1 spot of the Flemish single charts in its first week! Entering the Flemish single charts at nr. 1 is a unique prestation which has only been done before by Elton John (Candle in the wind) and Flemish Idol, Peter Evrard (For you). Almost 25.000 copies of 1 Life were sold in just one week. A first golden record for Xandee will be awarded soon.
The success of 1 Life among the Eurovision fans hasn't stayed unnoticed. Russia, the Netherlands, Germany and several other European countries already showed interest in releasing the song.
Xandee's recordcompany ARS is about to shoot a video for 1 Life for the international market. Flemish broadcaster VRT already announced they are willing to make the video the official Eurovision Song Contest preview video instead of the usual national final live performance.
Belgium is directly qualified for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest on 15th May.
