Hugo Helmig is a Danish singer/songwriter dedicated to writing both catchy and moving songs with role models such as John Mayer, James Bay and Ed Sheeran.
Just before he turned 19, he released his debut single ‘Please Don’t Lie'
The song went no 1 on the Danish airplay chart, and held the position for three weeks straight. Furthermore the song peaked at no 3 on the official German airplay chart. In March 2018, Hugo Helmig released his debut EP 'Promise'.
Several Danish media have drawn comparison to Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes, and Hugo’s debut single is a vigorous pop song about toning down the self-presentation on social media. Hugo explains:
“Everyone’ s so eager to stage this picture perfect life on social media, but of course nobody’ s perfect. It’ s such a shame that it’ s the norm for most people to present themselves in this superhuman way. ‘Please Don’t Lie’ is a kind reminder to everybody – and first and foremost myself.”
