Desert Rain Guides Edward Maya

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Almost a year has passed since Edward Maya seduced dance floors across the globe with the infectious “Stereo Love.” The Romanian musician has since managed to crack the US market, peaking at No.16 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is the biggest Romanian hit ever in the US.

Fans surely welcomes the comeback of “Desert Rain,” where Maya reunites with vocalist Vika Jigulina. 2011 also takes Edward Maya on a world tour, including stops in the US, Brazil, South Africa and Dubai. WelcheMusic is particularly pleased with the upcoming album The Stereo Love Show, slated for release later this year.

We’re yet to track any chart peaks for “Desert Rain” (yet) apart from getting its breakthrough on the user generated Last.FM chart. The track holds the No.6 position for last week’s most played tracks. Despite “Stereo Love” considered a much larger hit, the follow-up hit “This Is My Life” was the most played track over the last six months.
