Named in honor of his Stockholm-suburb hometown, Swedish MC Adam Tensta released his debut album It’s A Tensta Thing late last year. The album’s first single, My Cool, was instantly a huge hip-hop/techno jam in Sweden; and why shouldn’t it have been? Cooked up like a certain Chef overseas (børk, børk- sorry, couldn’t resist), Tensta delivers slick rhymes, coupled with a power-pop, hit-worthy beat. But as the expression goes, at least here in America, “the proof is in the pudding,” or in this case, the music. Who knows, maybe Adam Tensta will be the biggest Swedish-American crossover since meatballs and lingonberries?! Until then, however, Bon Appétit.
