Srbuk, Armenia’s representative, has now released her first single since her ESC entry, as part of the soundtrack for an upcoming film. Na Na Na sees Srbuk return to singing in Armenian, following two English language singles (Half A Goddess and Walking Out).
Over 10 months since the announcement of her participation and the opening of the call for songs, Srbuk is back! The song, called “Na Na Na”, features on the soundtrack for the upcoming Armenian film Anhayt Bajanord. “Na Na Na”, which is accompanied by a music video, is reminiscent of her debut single “Yete Karogh Es”. Both songs are sung entirely in Armenian and have a retro 60s vibe to them sonically.

Srbuk (full name: Srbuhi Sargsyan) was born in Yerevan in 1994. She finished second in Armenia’s X Factor in 2010, but only released her first single “Yete Karogh Es” in 2016. Two years later, she took part in the Ukrainian edition of The Voice. As part of Team Potap, Srbuk went on to finish in fourth place. After the contest, she signed with Factory Production and released her second single “Half a Goddess”.
In November, the broadcaster AMPTV launched a submissions process for songwriters to submit songs for Srbuk. Around 300 songs were submitted for her to perform in Tel Aviv, of which Walking Out was chosen.
Armenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019
Srbuk was the first entrant for the 2019 contest to be revealed. Despite this, her entry, “Walking Out” was the last song to be released. Debuting on March 10, the song was well-received by fans. Despite this reception, the song failed to qualify from the second semi-final, which it opened. It was later revealed that Srbuk placed sixteenth in the semi-final, receiving a total of 49 points: 23 points from the televoting and 26 points from the juries. With the old voting system, Armenia would have ranked 15th with 23 points.
