ROUND 1, MATCH 3: Aqua – ‘Barbie Girl’ vs N-Trance – ‘Set You Free’


Two very different Eurodance hits go head-to-head in the next matchup, with Barbie Girl, a 1997 smash for Danish/Norwegian pop outfit Aqua, taking on N-Trance’s Set You Free, a 1995 hit for the UK group.

Reportedly inspired by a Danish exhibition on kitsch culture that featured Barbie dolls, Barbie Girl was a bona fide chart smash, while Set You Free, featuring singer Kelly Llorena, was initially released as a white label in 1992, before a re-release three years later saw it go top-ten across Europe. But which one gets your vote?

You can listen to both tracks below, and cast your vote – remember the poll closes in 24 hours, so get voting, and get sharing. More information on the competition, as well as the match schedule, can be found here.

Let’s get ready to rumble… 🙂 #eurodance2021
