Gustaph’s single “Because of You” is totally hot ‘n happening in his home country, and it is all because of his national fans; his single came in hot at #3 in its debut week. Gustaph is no stranger to the Belgian charts though, because in the year 2000 he was in it as well with the song “Gonna Lose You”, which debuted at #22 in the Belgian Ultratop 50, back then Gustaph’s artist name was “Steffen”.

This year it was time for the Flemish-speaking part of Belgium to choose an entrant, because Belgium switches every year, one year the Flemish-speaking part can choose an entrant, and the other year the French-speaking part. The winner of the Belgian national final was a huge surprise, but Gustaph took the crown, and will fly the Belgian flag with his song “Because of You” in Liverpool upcoming May.
