He’s the gothic showman who represented Ukraine at 2018’s Eurovision Song Contest and helped to maintain his country’s perfect qualification record.

This week, Melovin has released his latest single, “That’s Your Role” and it has got Eurovision fans very excited. With a theatrical piano opening, Melovin creates drama and suspense with his new pop number. Mixing cabaret and radio pop, Melovin pulls off another catchy tune whilst adding to his growing pile of musical gems.

His enunciation has improved since “Under the Ladder”. However, the main strength of this track is its infectious melody. Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, Melovin explains:

“My era of the singing Dracula has passed. It’s time for fresh breath in both my music and my character. “That’s Your Role” is the answer to those who are trying to dictate their rules to us. Fortunately through music, the time to fight back has come, and we can live our lives the way we want. It’s your role, it’s your life and you can do whatever you want with it. That’s my message.”

Melovin is currently shooting the music video for “That’s Your Role”. Given the fact that he won our poll for Best Postcard and Best Music Video, fans can be sure that the video for this single will offer a visual treat.

The cover art for the single shows Melovin without his trademark novelty contact lens, suggesting he may have a new look in the work, moving on from his classic porcelain vampire style.

“That’s Your Role” lyrics – Melovin

We’re not just bodies you hide
Under the ground
We’re not the flowers you cut
So you look lovely
You can’t just do what you
Want without the consequence

Never knew, never knew
Never knew, never knew
Never knew, never knew
I’d say hence

If they wanna take your voice
Must take your soul
If they’re gonna take your soul
Well, not today
I’m not the kind of guy
Who’ll handle this alone
If you wanna play
It’s time and that’s your role

That’s your role
That’s your role
That’s your role

Sometimes it’s bigger than us
Sometimes it’s louder
We all have faith in our hearts
We all have power
Our thoughts are oriented
Towards the happiness

Never knew, never knew
Never knew, never knew
Never knew, never knew
I’d say hence

If they wanna take your voice
Must take your soul
If they’re gonna take your soul
Well, not today
I’m not the kind of guy
Who’ll handle this alone
If you wanna play
It’s time and that’s your role

That’s your role
That’s your role
That’s your role

I am surprised there’s such a positive vibe in this comment section. People tend to be negative towards Mélovin and just artists in general who tend to stand out and have a unique styles. I admire Mélovin as a person so much and this new song of his just reminded me of how much I admire his musical skills as well. TYR is simply a bop and a song you’re not able to listen to without moving a body part or two. It’s extremely catchy and me and all other Mélovinators out there cannot wait to see what the future… Read more »

He took cue from “Take it and Run” by Joe Jonas. Doubt it’ll work!

Of course we love it, Deban, honey! It is so uplifting and catchy! And you can understand his English much better. What an improvement! I also think that hiding his contact lens could mean playing a role and covering your real character sometimes in life…

Ups… In the afternoon this comment had 12 Likes and now 0. Funny, how the Mélovin-haters and Bots are disliking. Get a life, gurls 😀 😀 😀

I would like your comment again, if I could 🙂 He’s wearing a black contact lens now. And I love the song.

@Maure: It is not about the Likes 🙂 It’s about the dislikes. I don’t want likes, there could be a 0. But disliking from +12 down to 0 is notable, isn’t it? 😉
