CHART SPOTLIGHT. Last night, Danny Saucedo gave out Swedish points in the Eurovision Song Contest. The singer, who was the runner-up in the Swedish Melodifestivalen is on his way to get his breakthrough in the UK this summer. As reported by the fantastic music blog Scandipop, his debut single will be a new version of his 2007 hit “If Only You.”
Co-written by Michael Zitron, one of Swedish House Mafia’s song-writers originally included Therese in the originally version. She is replaced by Freja in this new version. Quite odd as Therese actually had had a string of hits in the UK and still release music in that territory.

The track was originally included on Danny Saucedo’s debut album Heart Beats and was later re-recorded as a duet with Therese. It was subsequently included a bonus track on the sophomore album Set Your Body Free.
