One of the most successful German Dance groups is taking the next stepThe Royal Gigolos restart with a new singer and the smash hit "Girls Just Wanna Dance".It was more than a fluke that a party in december 2003 was the birth of the Royal Gigolos, because out of a funny jamsession arises "California Dreaming", which evolved to a mega-selling track in january 2004.Two weeks after the release of "California Dreamin" the production hit the number one spot in almost every German dance chart and after only four weeks labels for the Royal Gigolos' debut single had been found in each country of the world where music is being published. The track became number one in the national dance and club charts in more than twenty countries (for example Russia, the Ukraine, Hungary, all of Scandinavia, the Netherlands, France and Canada) and even reached the radio and sales charts. In France and Belgium "California Dreaming" climbed to number two in the single charts and only O-Zone's smash hit of the year, "Dragostea Din Tei", kept it from reaching the top position.Countless shows took place in 2004 and 2005, the Royal Gigolos went to Eastern Europe for several times, to France and Belgium and even in Mexico-City three thousand enthused fans partied to the sound of the Royal Gigolos.The success story continued with the second single "No milk today". It entered the Top Five in various dance and sales charts worldwide.And with the third single release, the double A-side "Self control / Somebody's watching me" the next rocket was about to launch. Based on Laura Branigan's and Rockwell's numbers the Royal Gigolos produced another high quality club number. Within a few weeks after the vinyl-promotion the title has become number one in almost every German dance chart and had big international success. And the additional album release "Musique Deluxe" evolved to a success story in many countries. At this time the producer Mike Tyson left the group to concentrate on his solo project DJ TYSON. But this didn`t stop the success of the "Gigolos".After their last hit single "Tell It To My Heart", which is the first out of the upcoming second album, the Royal Gigolos are presenting a new face, the singer Layla. Melanie, the former singer, wants to pursue new opportunities.The English Lalya especially satisfies live performances with her fantastic voice, her fresh charisma and her energy, which truly fascinates everyone, who sees her on stage.The actual single "Girls Just Wanna Dance" is a Mash-Up out of the two world-hits "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" from Whitney Houston and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" from Cyndi Lauper. Previous to the release the song has cause quite a stir and is handled as one of the biggest tracks of the year 2008. This track will definitely tie up with "California Dreamin", "Self Control" and "Tell It To My Heart".This is the continuation of a unique success story, and the Royal Gigolos will provide some great surprises for sure.
