Montenegro’s Eurovision 2022 representative, Vladana, has released the Italian version of her entry.
Accompanied with an orchestra
‘Respira’ was released earlier this week alongside a music video, which included a full orchestra. Natasa Latkovic provided the Italian lyrics, and one of the backing vocalists is Ivana Popović Martinović. Ivana is a familiar name on the national final scene, as she took part in Montevizija 2019 with ‘Nevinost’.

Born in Podgorica, Vladana Vučinić grew up in a musical family. Vladana studied music at both primary and secondary level, before graduating in journalism from Montenegro’s State Faculty of Political Science.
She made her television debut in 2003 on a national karaoke show, before performing at the Budva Mediterranean Festival. She took part in Montevizija in both 2005 and 2006, as well as competing in the Sunčane Skale festival.
Releasing music under the mononym VLADANA, she has had singles including “Kao Miris Kokosa”, “Bad Girls Need Love Too” and “Sinner City”. Though she has not been on the music scene for several years, she has edited online fashion magazine Čiviluk.
2022 will mark Montenegro’s return to the Eurovision Song Contest. They had decided to sit out in 2020 and 2021 due to financial reasons.
