Born in Lebanon and raised in both France and England, MIKA first burst onto the music scene with his irresistibly catchy ‘Relax, Take it Easy’ in 2006. With an upbringing shaped by opera influences, choirs and time at the Royal College of Music, it was no surprise when MIKA’s single caught the attention of Radio 1, with Scott Mills naming it as his Record of the Week. He followed this up with his first EP, titled ‘Dodgy Holiday’. With his foot firmly in the door, MIKA was named in BBC’s Sound of 2007 Poll which identified promising talent for the upcoming year. He cemented this promise with his next single, ‘Grace Kelly, which was released at the start of January and stormed straight to the top of the UK Singles Chart.
Taking to the Road
MIKA’s star was on the rise after the success of his breakthrough singles and it was not long before his debut album ‘Life in Cartoon Motion’ hit the airwaves. The record topped the charts in the UK, selling almost 8 million copies globally and at the end of the year was credited as the ninth best-selling album in the world in 2007. MIKA continued his whirlwind year with a triumphant promotional tour spanning from the UK to North America.
After taking time to work on new material MIKA released his second studio album, ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ in 2009. He refers to it as the second part to his first album and reflects his teenage years, where you come to terms with reality slightly more. The lead single from the record, ‘We Are Golden’ was another hit and climbed to no. 4 on the charts. MIKA also wrote the soundtrack to the hit comic-book film Kick-Ass, titled ‘Kick Ass (We Are Young)’. He has since released two more albums, ‘The Origin of Love’ in 2012 and ‘No Place in Heaven’ in 2015.
Other Work and Awards
His illustrious career has led MIKA to a variety of other projects, even acting as a judge on the seventh season of The X Factor Italy to share some of his musical wisdom. He stayed on the show for a further two years before leaving to pursue other ventures, one which was a live album he recorded with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
