After 3 years away from the contest, Montenegro finally have a Eurovision entry again as Vladana has released her Eurovision 2022 entry 'Breathe'.

The singer presented her emotional ballad in a special programme on Montenegrin television, which featured a panel of guests that included North Macedonia’s Eurovision 2022 entrant Andrea.

The song was produced by Darko Dimitrov, who is no stranger to Balkan entries at Eurovision, previously working on 11 entries for Albania, North Macedonia and Serbia.  

'Breathe' lyrics:

Breathe 

The pain will go away they say
And the clouds fall
You’ll keep the things to feel their smell
Just to make you warm

No, nothing feels the same
The fear won’t leave you anyway

The battle for the life
Is bigger than you know
To act so selfishly is unforgivable
The air is what they need
Air is what they breathe
They’ll die without it
It’s unforgivable

Breathe, breathe
Fight for your life
Breathe, breathe

Go to sleep and dream that we
We will be reborn
Our souls will find themselves again
In the sweat of the storm

No, nothing feels the same
The fear won’t leave you anyway

The battle for the life
Is bigger than you know
To act so selfishly is unforgivable
The air is what they need
The air is what they breathe
They’ll die without it
It’s unforgivable
The air is what they need
The air is what they breathe
They’ll die without it
It’s unforgivable

Unforgivable, forgivable
Nothing would feel the same
Unforgivable, forgivable
We can’t lose them
Have to save them
It’s unforgivable
Breathe, breathe
Fight for your life
You better breathe

The air is what they need
The air is what they breathe
They’ll die without it
It’s unforgivable

Breathe

Montenegro at Eurovision

Montenegro made their Eurovision debut as an independent country in 2007 with Stevan Faddy and his song ‘Ajde, kroči’ (Come on, step forward). Since then, the Balkan country has taken part 11 times, only qualifying for the final twice (2014 and 2015). 

Before this year, Montenegro last took part in 2019 with D mol and their song ‘Heaven’. The song finished 16th in semi final 1, failing to make it to the final. On November 7th 2019, Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG confirmed that the country was withdrawing from the contest due to financial issues and “modest results”. Montenegro’s return for the 2022 contest was announced when the list of participating countries was revealed in October last year. 

One statistic that could be worrying for Montenegro is that they’ve never qualified for the final when sending a song in English. Can Vladana change that?

What do you think of Montenegro’s entry? Will we see them back in the final this year? Let us know the comments below!
