While we’re waiting for the release of their official music video, Romania‘s Eurovision 2017 entrants Ilinca and Alex Florea have dropped the official remix for “Yodel It!” Made by songwriter Al Mike, the remix stretches the song to 3:41 minutes, just in case you wanted more than three minutes of yodeling and rapping. Count us in!
Al Mike (Real name: Mihai Alexandru), the Romanian songwriter, was happy to share this remix with us. The song, initially meant for Timebelle in Switzerland, eventually landed in the laps of Ilinca Bacila and Alex Florea, and on 5 March the duo won Selectia Nationala 2017 in a landslide.
Meanwhile the duo have been busy touring. We have seen them in London, Israel and Amsterdam, and the next stop is going to be Madrid. They have been consistently good live, and the crowds have been very welcoming, which is a good sign for Romania ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv.

Ilinca and Alex have also made a three-day stop in Ilinca’s home city Cluj Napoca in the heart of Trasylvania, where they filmed the official video for the song.
We can’t wait to watch it, which should be any day now.
Judging from the making of footage, Ilinca is going to wear a flowy yellow dress with a plunging neckline (thankfully the green leprechaun dress from the NF is gone) and… that’s all we know for now!
What do you think about the official remix? Do you think it’s got what it takes for a Romanian Eurovision song to finally make it to the radio? Let us know in the comments!
