Hugo Helmig, a newcomer from Denmark, has turned the Danish music scene upside down with his single "Please don't lie" – the most-played pop song of 2017 in Denmark can also captivate the public in Germany. He finds inspiration for his texts in real life. Thus "Please don't lie" is about the social-media trend of mailing posts about the apparently perfect life, even if reality often looks different. The twenty year‑old knew early that he would follow in his father's footsteps and aimed to be a musician. Currently this singer-songwriter is working on his debut album, so a concentrated injection of new music is assured.
