Ruth Koleva is the first Bulgarian artist to sign with a major label. “Superpower” is Ruth’s new song and the symbolic super start to her international career with Warner Music.

Through her incredible talent, charisma and professionalism, Ruth Koleva takes the first step and paves the way for Bulgarian talent to global realization.

On the occasion of the international premiere of “Superpower” Ruth Koleva shared:

“The feeling of being signed to a major label is really amazing and it’s something I’ve dreamed of for many years, but at this stage in my life I feel like it’s important not only for me, but because it can open doors for a lot of people and other young artists to follow. It’s all thanks to the great work of our team at Orpheus Music, who have made this dream of mine come true and are an integral part of everything we have yet to achieve with Warner.”

The exclusive news arrives visually supported with a cover by Ruth Koleva for ELLE magazine and stunning shots by photographer Nikola Borisov between the pages. The contract with Warner Music is the logical step for the Bulgarian, after her success on the world music market as an independent artist. In recent years, Ruth Koleva has gained international fame with sold-out concerts in Asia, her presentation as the only participant from Bulgaria, in the music program of the South by Southwest-conference&festivals or her rotation in the most authoritative music platforms in Europe and the USA. The gorgeous Mark Ronson did not hide his admiration for her, and her multi-thousand-strong army of fans on social networks supports her every step.

Ruth Koleva’s latest single also features international participation.

The song was produced by Dexter Randall, who has worked with Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Fifth Harmony. “Superpower” fully unleashes Ruth’s potential, setting the stage for what is sure to be a long and fruitful career.

The video for “Superpower” is by Georgi Peev, who directed “All The Guys” and “Wassup”.

The song is built around a mesmerizing yet minimalistic production that focuses on Ruth’s irresistible voice. Confident yet vulnerable, she delivers her message of self-love in her deeply affecting way. Ruth invites listeners into the depths of her consciousness and does not hold anything back. Koleva’s trademark raspy whisper lends sweetness to the verses, building anticipation for the impactful chorus “I’ve got the Power!”.
