She’s the Croatian stunner who is saying goodbye to toxic relationships in her Eurovision 2021 number “Tick-Tock”.

And now Albina is adding more fire to her message with a glossy music video that sees her transition from off-duty model to queen of the ball, all in three minutes.

The video opens with the Dora 2021 winner walking down the middle of a road in a hoodie, thigh-skimming plaid skirt and a pair of knee-high platform boots. She soon enters a yellow door which helps her leave her troubles behind as she morphs into a high-fashion diva.

The centrepiece of that transformation is a floor-sweeping black gown with a very deep thigh split, through which Albina shows off an embellished piece of footwear, whose straps snake from her perfectly pedicured toes all the way up her leg.

In an Instagram post, she nodded to the sparkly shoe with the simple caption: “Diamond of the season.”

The diamond theme continues with her rather large ring — worn above long black gloves — and her ornate headpiece, which rests on top of her blonde tresses and matches her oversized earrings. There is so much metal on our girl she may well be picking up TV signals!

A post shared by ALBINA (@albina.music)

“Tick-Tock” — a song about letting go of toxic relationships and people — requires major attitude. And that isn’t always best served in a ball gown.

So, during the horn-heavy sections of the song, Albina reprises her look from the Croatian national final, re-purposing those parachute pants with black fasteners. But this time she pairs them with a leather top and a whole lot of fringe, giving her the look of an avant-garde raven on the dance floor.

This sequence seems to take place in an underground parking lot. The cars may have stopped, but Miss A is kicking it up to third gear.

As Albina moves past the negativity of her troublesome relations, she steps out into the light in a chic pantsuit. We see her duplicated in mirror form — she’s got double the power now that she’s set herself free.

By the end of the video, though, we realise it was all but a dream. As Albina walks away with a teddy bear — a memento of her fantasy of freedom — we can only hope it encourages her to make the changes she’s just imagined.

Of the bops this is the one that I think will do very well in Rotterdam. It’s in the same semi as Cyprus and Israel and I think a lot of people will vote for this song over the other catchier songs. This entry will surprise all its haters.

She bears the same name as my father’s mistress. Just realised that. I don’t like her anymore. 😛

What’s with that part where racial minorities are separated from the rest of the video. Wtf.

As a croatian I can’t emphasize enough how embarassing and racist that part is. Like using them as props to show europe how diverse we are while croatia is 99,9% white. It would be great if you had one of minorities as a dancer throughout the video and not like this.

The weirdest part was actually the facial expression of these models. They looked very ‘unbothered’…as if they weren’t paid much for his job, so they couldn’t even force a smile.

Still sounds like a Melodifestivalen leftover. Generic, to say the least.

So is this t0he version she will perform in Rotterdam or will they create a revamp first?
I read somewhere else that they’re busy creating a revamp, but I don’t know if that’s true.
Is there anyone who can confirm this?

The audio here doesn’t have the Croatian bit in it, that’s a shame. Is it staying for the performance?

The video was made before Dora (national selection) so it is video with english version. In May she will sing english and croatian.
