Junior Eurovision 2018 winner and Junior Eurovision 2019 host Roxie Węgiel, has just turned 18 today, January 11, 2023 and to celebrate her 18th birthday, she has dropped her new single “Ciche Szepty” (Silent Whispers) on major online music streaming platforms.
Roxie also took to her Instagram account to announce the release of her single, as well as provide some behind the scenes details about the single before finally inviting fans to listen to the song:
“Ciche Szepty” is another look into Roxie Węgiel’s musical evolution as the song has her try out the genre of synthwave, a genre that grew out of the nostalgia for 80s pop music. Her vocals are clear as usual and the production of the entire song keeps up with the quality of Roxie’s past releases. This single also marks her transfer to Unity Records, a label founded by Kevin Mglej and Jeremi Skorski which currently signs TEAM X’s Julia Żugaj and soloists Marcelina Szlachcic and Nicole Trębacz. Prior to Unity Records, Roxie was initially signed to Universal Music Polska and briefly self-released her music.
Roxie Węgiel has already gone far since becoming a huge hit in Europe after making Poland win for the first time at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Ever since winning Junior Eurovision 2018, Roxie has gone on to lend her voice to the soundtrack of the animated movie Manou the Swift which came out in 2019. Also on the same year, she became one of the hosts of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest when Poland hosted it.
She also went on to release an eponymous full-length album (Roksana Węgiel) and eighteen more singles since winning Junior Eurovision 2018 (which included four collaborations with Małe TGD, PawBeats, Ekipa and Komodo). Prior to winning Junior Eurovision 2018, she released three singles (Żyj, Obiecuję and Zatrzymać Chwilę from the Polish soundtrack of Hotel Transylvania 3).
We have now entered a new era with Roxie Węgiel and who knows? Eurovision Song Contest may be in the cards for her in the future. Until then, let us enjoy Roxie’s new single and celebrate her birthday with her.
Wszystkiego najlepszego, Roxie!
