After being officially confirmed as Armenia’s representative for the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, we did not have to wait long in order to hear Maléna’s Junior Eurovision 2021 entry “Qami Qami”. The release of her entry takes a different direction than what she would have sent for the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, titled “Why“. To coincide with the release of the song, an official music video was released.
“Several versions of the song in consideration”
Upon the release of the song, Maléna explained that a lot of time and effort went into the song and that herself and her team were satisfied with the choice.
“I am glad that I can already present my song and video to the fans of the contest. We worked for a long time, we had several versions of the song, but in the end both I and our team chose this song.
It is very trendy, dance, but also has a very important message. “Never give up and remember that together we can reach any height.”
“Qami Qami” was composed by tokionine, whilst Maléna co-wrote the lyrics alongside Vahram Petrosyan, tokionine, and David Tserunyan.
