She’s among the most talked-about Eurovision 2021 acts who is riding a wave of momentum with a series of fab releases from “Tears Getting Sober” to “alright” to “Ugly Cry”. And now VICTORIA is giving fans even more to talk about with the news her first EP will come out sometime in February.
Titled a little dramatic, her first extended play will include five songs. One of them will be her entry for Bulgaria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.
“Every young artist dreams about their first album,” VICTORIA says. “I am proud I will finally be able to share my EP with the world. The title a little dramatic best describes the overall arc of the songs on the album. I think I grew a lot in 2020, which was quite a dramatic year.”
And while you’ll have to wait for confirmation of which song will be going to Eurovision, the Bulgarian team will be teasing you with lyric videos and details about each and every song in the coming weeks. You’ll want to subscribe to VICTORIA’s YouTube channel so you don’t miss out.
On Saturday, 30 January, VICTORIA will appear on the BNT 1 morning show “Denyat zapochava s Georgi Lubenov”. During her interview she will reveal more details about the selection process of the Bulgarian song for Eurovision 2021.
Bulgaria’s efforts at Eurovision 2020 and 2021 is a public–private partnership between the Bulgarian National Television and Ligna Group, the company behind VICTORIA. The official sponsor of the project is the fintech company iCard.
What’s she got cooking for her upcoming album? Well VICTORIA has said that on one track she’ll sample the popular Internet meme “The Screaming Sheep”.
The screaming sheep video dates back to at least 2012. Reading in the comments section of YouTube, people familiar with sheep say the animals are known to make a variety of strange noises that can vary by weather conditions. At the same time, plenty of people online have questioned whether the video is authentic and if the sheep is actually making the noise.
Regardless, we know that VICTORIA’s take — and her chances of success at Eurovision — are very real indeed.
