With March around the corner, the Eurovision 2022 participants are getting to release their entries. In some cases, the final version will be released ahead of the Head of Delegations meeting; which is the case for Albania’s representative Ronela Hajati, who will release the revamped version of “Sekret” on March 4. With the confirmation, a teaser of the video was released on social media.
Revamp of “Sekret” was done in London

Before the reveal of the date, Ronela had to take to social media, as she has been asked why her Eurovision entry is in English, to which she responded:
Ronela on the Pre-Party circuit

Albania’s Eurovision Journey
Albania made their debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 with Anheza Shahini with “Image of You” which managed to place 7th in the final. Since their debut, Albania has participated 17 times and qualified the final 10 times; their best result came in 2012 when Rona Nishliu placed 5th with “Suus”.
In 2021, Anxhela Peristeri represented Albania with “Karma”, which gave the country its third straight grand final qualification and finished in 21st place with 57 points. Coincidentally, it was also their third song in a row to be sung in Albanian.
