After the sudden announcement by the Macedonian Broadcaster, MRTV, that Tamara Todevska will be representing the small Balkan nation, we are getting the next hint in the puzzle and that is the song title – Proud!
As previously stated, the opened call for song closed on the 5th of February. A panel of music professionals had the hard task of narrowing down a few hundreds of potential entries sent their way.
However, Tamara decided to continue her collaboration with a team of familiar faces to the general public in the country and the Eurovision community.
The Macedonian Eurovision entry is being written and produced by three authors. Robert Bilbilov, Darko Dimitrov and Lazar Cvetkovski will all sign their name to Tamara’s Eurovision entry this year.
Robert Bilbilov is no stranger to the Macedonian public, his work has previously been featured on the Eurovision stage and yes, it was Tamara’s entry “Let Me Love You”.
Darko Dimitrov has a long list of Eurovision experiences, his latest being both Eye Cue and Serbia’s Balkanika and Sanja Ilic last year. However, his most memorable work features Elena Risteska and her Eurovision 2006 entry “Ninanajna” which gave the country its best result to date.
Last but not least, Lazar Cvetkovski, he’s best known for being directly involved in Esma and Lozano’s “Pred Da Se Razdeni” and Tijana’s “To The Sky”.The release date of “Proud” is still not revealed or confirmed
The team is working hard on putting in their final touches to the song in the studio as we speak. However, MRTV is yet to reveal the date in which we will get to hear the final product.
