Gabrielle – Vekk Meg Opp

Gabrielle – not to be confused with the British 90’s singer that wore an eye patch – is a Norwegian pop singer, although she started her career flipping burgers, cleaning and hosting a radio show (now that’s what I call progression 😉 ). In 2011, her very first single Ring Meg reached number 1 in her home country, was certified 10 times platinum and became the most streamed single in Norwegian history at that point. That track and five more singles appeared on her debut album Mildt Sagt.

On her new single Vekk Meg Opp she still sings in her own language and it sounds like Gabrielle is destined for a high chart position in Norway once again. Although translating songs isn’t always a good idea artistically, I could imagine a version in English would make this song a true border breaker. But for now, sing hum along with the original!
