Artiestinformatie

Land   Noorwegen

Yosef Wolde-Mariam en Tschawe Baqua maken al sinds 1992 samen muziek. In 2000 krijgen ze de kans hun eerste track, God Forgive Me, uit te brengen. De populariteit van het duo groeit snel in Noorwegen. Op tv-zender The Voice krijgen ze hun eigen programma.

De groep breekt door in 2008 met een remake van Beggin’, origineel een nummer van The Four Seasons uit 1967. Het nummer staat 12 weken op nummer 1 in Noorwegen en staat in de Top 40 twee weken op 1.

Vooralsnog zijn de heren een 'one hit wonder' want opvolgers als Freaky Like Me (met Ameerah) en One Life (met Kelly Rowland) blijven steken in de Tipparade. In 2015 werkt Madcon samen met Ray Dalton op de track Don’t Worry en daarmee scoren ze na bijna zes jaar hun tweede hit in de Top 40. In het najaar wordt Keep My Cool de opvolger.


Songtekst

Oeoeoeoeoh
Put your loving hand out, baby
I'm beggin

Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, darling

Ridin high, when I was king
Played it hard and fast, cause I had everything
Walked away, wonderin' then
But easy come and easy go
And it would end

So ah, any time I need ya, let me go
Any time I feed ya, get me low
Any time I see ya, let me know
But I planted that seed, just let me go

I'm on my knees when I'm (beggin)
'Cause I don't want to lose (you)
I got my arms so spread
And I hope that my heart gets fed
Matter of fact, gonna beg

Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, darling

I need you, (yeeah) to understand
Tried so hard
To be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell
I used to be
Shadow of my life
Was hangin over me

A broken man
Without a throne
Won't even stand the devils dance
To win my soul

What we doin'? What we chasin'?
What about 'em, why da basement?
Why me got good shit, don't embrace it?
Why to feel for da need to replacement?

Ya' on a runway track from the good
I want to paint in the pictures any way we could, react
Like the heart in a trash where you should
You done gave it away, ya' had it till you took it back

But I keep walkin' on
Keep rockin' dawns
Keep walking forward
Now the court is yours
Keep browsin' halls
'Cause I don't wanna live in a broken home girl I'm beggin

Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, darling

I'm fighting hard
To hold my own
No, I just can't make it
All alone

I'm holdin' on
I can't fall back
I'm just a con
'Bout to fade to black

Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, darling

Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin, beggin you
Put your loving hand out, darling
