Dana International's new single, Love boy, the second one from her new album has stormed the radio stations in Israel. The song reached the first place on the combined airplay chart of all radio stations in the country and has put Dana back in business, for the first time in a long while.

For quite a long while, the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest winner, Dana International, has kept a low profile in the Israeli music scene. She has been recently signed in one of Israel's leading record labels, Hed Arzi, and a new album is scheduled to be released, probablythis August. In the build up to the album's release, Dana has been everywhere in the Israeli media lately: television interviews in all the national channels, magazines and internet websites.

The first single from this upcoming album, Hakol ze letova (Everything is for the better), was released a couple of months ago and gained popularity but nothing compares to the next single, Love boy, which instantly became a massive hit.This summer hitimmediately topped the charts in various radio stations and has conquered the first place in this week's combined airplay chart of all radio stations in Israel. The song's chorus containts two verses from an old song of Avi Toledano's (Israel 1982).

Ofer Menachem, Dana's PR manager at Hed Arzi, told Esctoday.com: "We are proud and happy with Dana's success with us. Dana's fans can expect the album to be out real soon and it will be available for purchasing, even from abroad, in the near future". The new album will also include a special remix of one of the other tracks, You get down on me, by the leading DJ, Junior Vasquez.

The song Love Boy, which turned into a massive summer hit and gained the support of the radio stations and music critics, has certainly put Dana International in the spotlight in Israel, after a long while.
