After revealing Vladana will represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, the Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG has today revealed that the song is called “Breathe”. The song will get its release in February.
“Emotional, powerful and melancholic”
Montenegro’s Eurovision 2022 entry is composed by Darko Dimitrov, who has composed many songs to the contest in the past years. Recently he has been among the songwriters for Hurricane’s “Loco Loco” and Tamara Todevska‘s “Proud”. Vladana Vučinić has written the lyrics for the song herself. The song is said to be “powerful, anthemic ballad with a clear message”.
Vladana said that she expects the song to have its premiere at the end of February. In three words, she described it as emotional, powerful and melancholic. The song was written in English and will be performed in that language in Turin.
I think the message should be heard beyond the Balkans, so we decided to use the English language. We were also thinking about the song being recorded in Italian because of the host country, but we have not yet decided on the Montenegrin version.Vladana Vučinić
Smallest budget for a delegation
Today it was also revealed that Montenegro will have the smallest budget of all the delegations. The budget is also smaller than in previous years. The participation will cost 28 thousand euros. Vladana told, that sponsors have come forward to help with the costs for taking part.
Montenegro withdrew from the competition in 2020 and 2021. Last time they took part in 2019, when the group D-mol represented the country with the song “Heaven”. The country failed to qualify to the final after receiving 46 points in the semifinal. Montenegro hasn’t qualified to the final since 2015, when Knez represented the country with the song “Adio“.
