Belgium’s Jérémie Makiese has released his Eurovision song “Miss You” for the year 2022
He was the first ACT confirmed for Eurovision 2022 in September last year. But after a six-month wait, Belgium’s Jérémie Makiese has now revealed his song “Miss You”.
Big disclosures happened on many platforms.
Jérémie Makiese was a guest on the VivaCité radio show Le 8/9, which gave the song its premiere play. Meanwhile, the music video for the entry was shown on the TV channel La Une and shortly thereafter on the Eurovision YouTube channel.
Jérémie Makiese – “Miss You” (Belgian Eurovision 2022)
“Miss You” starts off as a Bond-esque ballad with lots of drama. It then transitions into an R&B offering with a soul melody, especially thanks to the addition of a gospel choir in the background of the final chorus.
The music video shows Jérémie Makiese sitting in a car with a built-in confession booth. We also see him behind the microphone, in the car depot and in the church dressed in white.
Who is Jérémie Makiese?
Jérémie Makiese rose to fame through his participation in the 2020-2021 series The Voice Belgic.
He auditioned with Labyrinth’s performance of “Jealousy”, which prompted all four judges to take turns. Jérémie was coached by American-born singer BJ Scott. He previously coached Loïc Nottet during his time on the show and co-wrote the lyrics for his Eurovision 2015 song “Rhythm Inside”.
Jérémie made several impressive appearances on the show and easily won over the voting public. He won the Grand Final in April 2021.
Jérémie was born in Antwerp to Congolese parents. He grew up in the municipality of Ukele in Brussels and speaks both French and Dutch.
