Ahead of Junior Eurovision 2015, Armenia’s AMPTV definitely feels like it has a star on its hands. Today it revealed that its singer Michael Varosyan will go by the name MIKA (yes, like this guy) in Sofia. He’ll reveal his JESC 2015 song “Love” — and its music video — on October 6.
AMPTV says the song will be in the rock ‘n’ roll genre — a first for Armenia. Here’s how they described it in a statement sent to wiwibloggs:
The song carries a message of the importance of love and laugher, and spreads the positive energy with the help of amazing dance rhythms. The song is titled “Love”. Composed by Lilith Navasardyan, lyrics by Avet Barseghyan. Co-composed and co-written by MIKA.
I’m very excited to share this song with everyone! I really enjoyed creating it together with Lilit and Avet. My song carries the message of the importance of love, it is very rhythmic and is filled with positive energy and emotions, my emotions. I think you are going to love it!
Lilit Navasardyan, the composer, says she drew inspiration from MIKA’s charisma and energy.
The song fits MIKA perfectly. Basically, it’s about him. I was very excited when I first heard him singing it, as the song explores his talent in a completely new way. I’m very happy with what we have now. I think our team has done an amazing job.
The lyrics are based on a wordplay of two words: the English “Love” and the Armenian “Lav” meaning good. This song is filled with joy, positive emotions and catchy rhythms, so good luck not dancing in your seats when you hear him sing it!
