A particularly eye-catching feature of this week’s update is the huge leap by Norway’s Ina Wroldsen & Broiler, who climb from their previous position in spot no. 8 all the way to the 2nd position with their song ‘Lay it on Me’ on the Norwegian Trenda: Nordic Chart. The duo has been lingering around the bottom of the charts, but have finally gained some wind under their wings. So what happened?
Well, a couple of weeks ago Ina performed an acoustic version of ‘Lay it on Me’ on Norwegian TV as part of the Norwegian version of the Idol show. This seems to have boosted the track’s popularity significantly, and now the song is climbing ever closer to the top spot, currently occupied by newcomers Katastrofe and ‘Sangen du hater’.
Even though Ina Wroldsen might be an unfamiliar name to many ears, she’s no rookie when it comes to creating hit songs. She’s previously written for artists such as The Pussycat Dolls, Leona Lewis, Adelén, Shakira, Demi Lovato and Calvin Harris. She’s also one half of Ask Embla, a duo consisting of her and Icelandic producer Arnthor Birgisson.
