Biography

Frans Jeppson Wall was born on December 19, 1998 in Ystad. He first gained recognition during the World Cup of 2006 when he released his now famed tribute track paying homage to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, all at the tender age of seven years old. The song, named  ‘Who’s Da Man’ became a phenomenon and Frans was soon crowned  “Zlatan- Frans ” with and by the Swedish people.

This year, 10 years post his original epic homage to Zlatan, Frans is now making an explosive comeback in the Swedish Song Contest “Melodifestivalen” with his new track ’If I Were Sorry’. The track is co-written by Fredrik Andersson, Michael Saxell, Oscar Fogelström and Frans himself.

Frans performed the song in Gävle during the fourth and last semi-final making it directly to the big final at the Friends Arena, Stockholm on March 12th.

The single was released immediately after the performance and ascended quickly on the charts. The song is currently # 1 on the Swedish Spotify charts, number 1 on the Swedish National single sales chart and the track has since release streamed more than 7,8 Million – this despite stiff competition from other strong Eurovision contributions as well as world famous tracks signed Zayn and Rihanna.

Lyrics:

English

I’d crawl thru the desert on my hands and knees
Rehearsin my pretty please
Climb the highest mountain
If I were sorry

Shout it from the top
Swim under water until my lungs exploded
Walk into the fire
If I were sorry

I’d run a thousand mile
Wouldn’t stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take a break to breathe until I got close
enough

Then Id do it all again
If I really had the chance
But I know deep inside for you its just another
dance

If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry

If I were sorry
It would be a different story

If I were sorry
If I were sorry oh

I’d hold my breath until my face turned blue
I’d rob a bank and the post office too
Swim across the ocean
If I were sorry

I’d take wow of silence
I wouldn’t say a single word
Until you really heard
If I were sorry

I’d run a thousand miles
Wouldn’t stop until I dropped
Wouldn’t take the break to breathe
Until I I got close enough

If I were sorry
I’d give you all the glory
If I were sorry

If I were sorry
It would be a different story
If I were sorry oh

Now did you ever realize
That your mistake had a prize
Oh you threw it all away
Cuz youre the devil in disguise

Now would you ever realize
The consequences of your lies
And would you save the falling tear or act as if
There’s nothing there

If I were sorry
If I were sorry

If I were sorry
If I were sorry

If I were sorry

I’d take a vow of silence
I wouldn’t say a single word
If I were sorry

If I were sorry

I’d be on my hands and knees
Beggin pretty please
If I were sorry
But I’m not sorry no
