Throughout 2018, Iveta Mukuchyan took us on “The Journey of a Woman”. The series of songs took us on a tour of Iveta’s inner emotions. From “Margo” to “Rich Bitch“, we were treated to a diverse and experimental tasting menu. Now, the songstress from Armenia has served us the third course in the form of “United”.

“United” — Iveta Mukuchyan

While “Margo” and “Rich Bitch” were very experimental in nature, there is a clear narrative and structure to “United”. The chorus summarises the story, as Iveta sings, “United is how we come back home.” The song is deep, asking important questions. Iveta states that “life is like an endless floor” before asking “who’s the winner of all these wars, if we only exist as one”. “United” is a call for unity and joining forces, “instead of breaking each other”.

The music video continues where “Rich Bitch” left off. There are many Armenian elements weaved throughout the package but the video has a predominantly tribal feel. Iveta is surrounded by a group of fire spinners at one stage, illuminating our goddess in the dark.

Paying tribute to the opening bars of “LoveWave”, Iveta delivers a spoken word second verse. The change is marked as the sun sets and darkness descends around her. Iveta declares that “we need to be united as sisters and strong brothers”, emphasising her message. Through unity, whether or not we are rich bitches, we can shine bright.

“United” was released in late April, right before Eurovision 2019 kicked into full swing. Iveta marked the release with some sizzling photos from the shoot on social media. She is spreading lovewaves right to our hearts.

“The Journey of a Woman” hasn’t been Iveta’s only work of late. She also released the extremely catchy “Armenian Girls” in 2018. The song was voted by Team Wiwi as the number one track of 2018.

What do you think of Iveta Mukuchyan’s “United” and “The Journey of a Woman”? Do you want to see Iveta back at Eurovision? Let us know in the comments below.

In the meantime it has been confirmed that Slovakia won’t return next year. Such a pity! :/

That’s a shame. I think we all hoped that the recent Czech glow-up would spur them back into competing- at this rate it’ll take the contest being in Prague for them to rejoin. I thought they might’ve joined in 2015 for Vienna

Let’s hope for a Czech victory then! 😉

If they continue at the rate they’re going a Czech victory in the next 5-10 years is very likely

Greetings from Slovakia 🙂 Thank you for your support. Our broadcaster every year says that ESC is not our priority agenda… See you maybe in 2021, I wish all the best to all participants.

I really hope they will internally select her for next year. She’s the only one who can save Armenia from flopping.

Not really. There are some very promising names in Armenia that can do very very well. I hope Armenia internally selects Lilit Hovannisyan, give her a BOP with ethnic instruments and hire Sacha Jean-Baptiste to do the staging, because the current stage director of Armenia is the reason why Armenia failed this year.

Yeah i agree and i’m Armenian btw. Lilit Hovannisyan could be a great option actually, but i don’t think she’s interested in competing at Eurovision anymore (she WAS couple years age), as she’s on a 65 city worldwide tour right now and is on the top of her career. Another reason why we’re not doing well is because they’re always too busy trying to showcase the vocal ability of the artist instead of writing something catchy. Srbuk set the bar too high for herself and couldn’t even pull it off live but the staging was the main reason why she… Read more »

No, please. Lilit’s video clips are interesting but the majority of her music (not the song) and singing…. I don’t like it. There are other options like Sona Rubenyan or even Juice and other artists that deserve more attention.

Iveta needs to come back to Eurovision.

Totally agree, but I hope she comes back with a song from her roots. She knows how to mix tradition with modern sounds, and this is the way to not sound like anybody else.
