Armenia’s Emmy may have missed out on the Eurovision Grand Final in 2011 but that has not slowed this sista down. And if anything it’s given her more fuel for her eternally hot fire.

In 2014, she tackled domestic violence in the powerful single “Sirelov Heranum Em“. And she followed that up with the majestic track “Sari Aghjik“. Now — in a nod to her 2011 entry “Boom Boom” — she’s back on the dance floor with her latest single “LA Yerevan”, which mixes traditional folk sounds with hip-hop. From Los Angeles to Yerevan, she gets it…

“LA Yerevan” — Emmy

Whether or not you were a fan of “Boom Boom“, the song was undeniably catchy.

The same can be said for “LA Yerevan”, which packs memorable lyrics…even if you don’t understand all of them (you won’t). Emmy sings about traveling from LA to Yerevan via Paris, Moscow and Dubai. Clearly she gets around, and she wants you to know that you can too — all the while keeping the spirit of Hollywood with you. She even throws hey ho into the backing to make us nostalgic for the 90s.

The music video sees Emmy flashing a variety of styles — mixing Los Angeles skater chic with a healthy dose of Armenian princess realness. This girl would not look out of place in the clubs of either city…though her sky-high platforms with the oversized gold letters L.A. emblazoned on the side might just give her away as a tourist in California.

“LA Yerevan” lyrics translation — Emmy

From LA, the road to Yerevan
Is so familiar to me
Friends that I know and like
From LA, let’s fly to Yerevan

From LA, Paris to Yerevan
From LA, Moscow to Yerevan
From LA, Dubai to Yerevan
From LA, come to Yerevan

The pink city, Yerevan
There are many roads to faraway places
But to me every time
I need to remain with you

From LA, Paris to Yerevan
From LA, Moscow to Yerevan
From LA, Dubai to Yerevan
From LA, come to Yerevan

Come to Yerevan (x4)

From LA, come to Yerevan (x2)

I’m sorry, “you can’t deny that it was extremely catchy”. Well, I can. That song was ridiculous and one of the worst ever to perform in the Eurovision. It wasn’t catchy, it wasn’t well sung, it wasn’t a good performance, it was just nothing. No idea why Armenia selected that, normally they have very good songs, especially last year.
