The two Maltese superstars, who both achieved great results for Malta in Eurovision, have teamed up in the latest music video for “Cannonball”.
A long awaited collaboration
After being a juror to Michela during her time on X Factor Malta, fans were eager to hear a collaboration between Ira Losco and Michela. Of course, Eurovision was first but the wait is finally over. For her new music video, Ira Losco re-recorded “Cannonball”, a song previously appearing on her 2018 album “No Sinner No Saint”, together with Michela.
“Cannonball” talks about the struggles of getting out of a toxic relationship and how people should break out “like a cannonball”. It’s a song that starts slow but gets more and more uptempo as it progresses. Give it a listen down below!
Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest
Malta first entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1971 when they sent ‘Marija I-Maltija’ by Joe Grech, finishing in last place. After a fifteen year hiatus, Malta experienced a long stretch of success in the 1990s and early 2000s. Their best placing to date is 2nd, achieved in 2002 by Ira Losco with ‘7th Wonder’ and by Chiara with ‘Angel’ in 2005. In 2016, Ira Losco returned and placed 12th with 153 points. Back in January Michela Pace wowed audiences across Malta and won the first series of X Factor Malta. Thus it was on her young shoulders to represent the tiny nation in Tel Aviv. Following work with the Symphonix team, she settled on the tropical banger ‘Chameleon’. During the contest Michela opened the Grand Final and finished in 14th with 107 points.
