Just a few weeks after the release of her EP ‘Awake’, Cyprus’ Eurovision star Tamta, released a music video where she collaborated with Israeli singer and dancer Stephane Legar for her new track “Yala”.
Dynamic choreography, summer vibes, and red lipstick. The music video has everything that a summer hit needs. With Tamta’s silken voice, some Middle Eastern sounds and Stephane’s rap in French, the song is a call to enjoy the moment, party and worry about nothing else.
When ‘Awake’ was released, Tamta revealed on her social media that she got the song from Dutch and American songwriters after her participation at Eurovision in Tel Aviv. In addition, Tamta also revealed that the original name of the track was ‘Dollar’, however it was proposed by her manager to change the title to “Yala” because according to the singer it was a word they heard everywhere in Tel Aviv.
“We wanted to somehow translate our experience from Tel Aviv into this party song” she added.
After the release, the song became an instant hit and is currently one of her popular tracks on various streaming platforms.
In 2019, Tamta represented Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Replay”, finishing in 13th place with 109 points.
