Blas Cantó has previously revealed that he has selected the song he wishes to perform at Eurovision 2020. The singer described the song saying:
It is not a ballad or up-tempo, it is a very interesting mix, a new record.
It does not sound like any of my songs, it is something new for me … it is a very exciting song, very intimate in the stanzas but the choruses are epic. We are working on a type of song like that, and whatever it is, I want it to be this way
