colleagues and friends!
Very little time is
left till the end of the current year and the beginning of the New Year and
Christmas holidays. It means that the next pre-New Year music competition is
going to start on 3 November on tophit.ru.
The brightest artists
and beginning talents will be demonstrating their absolutely new hits about
winter, fir-trees, needles, sleds, bean-feasts and, surely, romantic New Year
love to the multi-million audience. There might be new cover versions and
remixes for the classical compositions of the Christmas genre – from ‘V Lesu
Rodilas Yolochka’ [the Russian New Year song about the fir-tree] and ‘Jingle
Bells’ to ‘Novogodnyaya’ of the band Diskoteka Avaria. Well, New Year is almost
here! We remind all our colleagues on radio that winter, New Year and Christmas
hits are marked with special signs on tophit.ru, thanks to which one can easily
find and download them.
And for the artist the
grand prize of the struggle for the New Year listener will be a tightly
scheduled December concerts and high holiday fees. The final results of this
winter song contest will be drawn up in the beginning of February within our
traditional Christmas chart – 2015.
And a bit earlier, in the beginning of January, we’ll publish our final annual charts. This time the full list
of our hit parades will also include much-heralded and long-awaited streaming
charts. The detail will be announced within the next few months, but for now we
can say that no new breakthroughs is planned on the Russian stage this year.
The first ten will much possibly include Elka, Nyusha, Grigory Leps, Ani Lorak,
bands Vintage and Serebro. Though, according to 2014 music results, we wait for
some surprises from Top 30 of artists – young fervent newcomers.
In conclusion, we’ll
remind of our modest but brand name jubilee that took place in October: 4 years
later after its launch, the 200th release of Top Hit Chart with
Timur Rodrigez is out. And we sincerely congratulate Timur with this event!
He’s accompanied by Mitya Fomin, Nyusha, Eva Polna, Zaza Napoli, who hosted
this program and its separate releases, as well as the creative team, which
participated in preparation and recording of Top Hit Chart. But new hits are
not far off, what means, our chart will gladden millions of fans of popular
music in Russia and abroad for a long time. Stay with us, friends!
