In her Eurovision entry “Sekret”, which she composed and texted by herself, she tells a love story of a secret love:
Come on closer to me, me ya
Cause I love when ya near near
The style of her music is contemporary pop with a touch of Rn’B and Balkan influences. In “Sekret” the melody with a strong chorus is dominating. The song will probably be sung in the Albanian language. It is to be expected that the stage setting will be great again, so that this dramatic entry will shine. This song also attract listeners from other European regions. Albania will also be on starting position one in the first semi-final, which is a very good opener for the 2022 ESC.
