Marika Lejon is back with a new song, “Forbidden Love”,  after 12 years away. This song is special because it’s about real events and the power of love. It’s not just a song, but a love story that never gives up. “Forbidden Love” is a song about the attack on a gay pub in Oslo. It’s about how, in some places, love between two people is not allowed because of their religion, gender, nationality, skin color, or social class. The song is about loving despite these barriers, and listeners can relate to it in their way. You can listen to “Forbidden Love” on music streaming services starting May 31st, 2024.

Marika’s unique voice and South European-inspired sound make the song special. The lyrics, written by Chris Abram, are about the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community, including those faced during the World Cup in Qatar. The song is important today because many people are separated by war, conflict, or societal expectations. It’s a story about two lovers who are apart, and many people can understand how that feels. Marika Lejon and Robert Vendetta worked together to create “Forbidden Love”. Robert wrote, arranged, and produced the music, and Marika was involved in the creative process. Chris Sansom made sure the song sounded great and stayed true to its message.

Marika Lejon is returning to music with “Forbidden Love”,  a song that shows her love for music and her commitment to expressing herself freely. Many people will connect with this song, which is a pure expression of love.
