Era Istrefi Knows You Wanna Taste It Bonbon

"Bonbon, I know what you want", at first listen this voice might sound like a hybrid of Sia and Rihanna paired with a Major Lazer beat but, the voice belongs to Albanian upcoming pop-star Era Istrefi. Bonbon was first released in December of 2015 through Nesër's Youtube and quickly become a favourite racking up +30 million views. The video might have played a big part in getting Era noticed. It saw Istrefi showing off her killer dance moves on an idyllic snow-covered road in Brezovica, Kosovo wrapped up in a green parka jacket with bright pink fur (swoon) and makeup on fleek. After the viral success of the video, Era was noticed by music execs and signed to Sony Music and Ultra Music.

In "Bonbon" Istrefi showcases her remarkable and alluring voice while the Major Lazer inspired reggae beat places this track in a class of its own. Bonbon is a contagious, vibrant track and will have you dancing and singing along in no time. Her songwriting and singing abilities have an edge and her ability to mix Albanian lyrics with English lyrics so effortlessly gives her an advantage over other upcoming pop-stars. 

The song was written by  Istrefi, Ergen Berisha, Cricket, Big Bang, and Toton, and was produced by Big Bang. The original song was recorded in Albanian, with some English lines, but don't fear there is a full English version available as well.

Press play and let Era Istrefi give you a taste of what a Rihanna, Sia and Major Lazer collab would sound like, Bonbon (okay, okay).
