Dami Im is shaping up to be a very promising pop star. The 25-year-old won X Factor Australia in 2013 and released a pleasant (if somewhat underwhelming) winner’s single called “Alive”. It didn’t really do her voice or kooky personality justice but she got it just right on second single “Super Love” and now keeps that momentum going with another soaring pop anthem.
“Not in it for the glory, I just hope you’re waiting for me,” sings the Korean-born diva sweetly on “Gladiator” before pulling the trigger in the atomic-powered chorus: “Never gonna give up, I won’t let nobody harm ya. I will fight for your love like a gladiator!” Produced by Swedish trio Trinity, Dami’s latest single is pure-pop delight that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Katy Perry album. Listen to a preview after the jump.
