Within about 30 seconds of meeting Dutch-born singer/songwriter Eva Simons, it's apparent that she has something different to offer. First of all, there's her hair sometimes mohawked, sometimes side-swept, and a shimmering shade of ember. But what really stands out is Simons' spark, which is almost as evident in conversation as in her tap-your-feet songs.
We're hardly alone in our fascination with Simons. She's built tons of buzz for her collaborations with will.i.am, Afrojack and LFMAO with whom shes touring this summer. "Take Over Control," on which the electro-dance artist is featured, topped the iTunes dance charts globally, has sold nearly a million downloads in the U.S., and its video has ranked up nearly 12 million views on YouTube.
In a video interview with MC's Sergio Kletnoy, Simons describes herself as "very happy, very positive, very alive, and very honest." With her killer Tasmanian Devil impression, humanitarian dream superpower, and a karaoke-driven allegiance to the Backstreet Boys, Simons is most definitely all of those things.
Check out the video for "I Don't Like You," the first single off of her soon-to-come debut album. That way, you'll be in-the-know when it starts playing in every hotspot you frequent.
