What does Beyoncé and Azeri Eurovision singer Arash (2009) have in common? Two words – Sean Paul.  How did we miss this collaboration between 2009 Eurovision singer Arash (Azerbaijan) and Jamaican dance hall super star Sean Paul – we will never know.

Arash has found himself a new singing partner in the form of the newly Mohican haired Sean Pau,l and parted ways with the beautiful Aysel. You will remember that Aysel and Arash brought Azerbaijan to 3rd place at Eurovision in 2009 with the song “Always”.

Last year Arash joined forces with Sean Paul and they wrote the song “She Makes Me Go”. The song did not find its place in the charts at the time last September but thankfully got a re-release in February of this year, along with a spanking (literally) new video. European chart success followed and still climbing in some territories.

The song to date has peaked in the following countries 

Chart (2012–13) Peak
Austria (Ö3 Austria Top 40)
Belgium (Ultratip Flanders)
Belgium (Ultratop 50 Wallonia)
Czech Republic (IFPI)
Finland (Suomen virallinen lista)
France (SNEP)
Germany (Media Control AG)
Greece Digital Songs (Billboard) 8
Italy (FIMI)
Poland (Dance Top 50)
Slovakia (IFPI)
Sweden (Sverigetopplistan)
Switzerland (Schweizer Hitparade)


This is Euro Dance music with the Sean Paul twist – if it is good enough for Beyoncé then it is good enough for Arash. Talking of Beyoncé – the video for the song “She Makes Me Go”, has more “booty” than a Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child video combined? The video has certainly been the x-factor that has pushed the video into the charts following it’s 2013 re-release.

The song was written by  Arash, Robert Uhlmann , Sean Paul and Roberto Zanetti and produced by Arash and Robert Uhlmann. Dance Hall, Rap and Euro Hip Hop bling is the best way to describe this song. Fast Cars, Fast Women and a Thumping Dance Track – then this is for you. Not a hint of  “Always” – sorry. Thumbs up from us!
