One year after finishing 14th in the Grand Final of Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, Sweden’s Tusse has released a new, uplifting pop song. “Happiness Before Love” is the title track to his upcoming EP of the same name!
The 20 year old was born and raised in Congo-Kinshasa and moved to Sweden at age 8. His career really took off when he won Swedish Idol in 2019 where he gave an absolutely incredible live performance. He has been busy ever since writing music and developing his sound in the studio.
In 2021, of course, all Eurofans know Tusse won Melodifestivalen with nearly 3 million votes from the Swedish public – a record number that even Cornelia Jackobs was unable to beat this year – and went on to represent Sweden in Rotterdam. This made Tusse the only artist so far to ever to win both Idol and Melodifestivalen in Sweden!
When asked about the song, here is what Tusse had to say:
“Love has always been a complicated plan in my life. I’ve never been in a relationship and the times when I’ve been close it has always ended with me being hurt. I wrote “Happiness Before Love” for myself, as a motivation song, to once and for all choose to be happy rather than chase after love. I’ll take a break from being unhappily in love and choose to create my own happiness. It’s a pop song with a message about selflove and I hope that lots of people will dance and celebrate the single life to this song.”
