It is true that I got a call from the Montenegrins and for me that is a big challenge. Every year I get a lot of calls to write a composition for the song “Eurovision”. So it was this, and I got a call from the three countries. Although I am in the final stages of work on her album, the offer of Montenegro is something that I could not refuse.
Montenegro are being represented by Knez, who is hoping to follow in the footsteps on Sergej Cetkovic and take Montenegro into the final for only the second time.
