The teaser video opens with pink tight-clad legs popping out of boxes that look like dice. Then, donned in a blue leotard dance costume, Natalia is accompanied by four dancers and some intense hand-ography. We then see a frame of the singer’s sugar-coated lips that feature on the song’s official artwork. Finally, the video ends with Natalia and her dancers dropping to the floor.
“I wish your spring to be full of… SUGAR!”, Natalia says. “Happy month and happy spring everyone!”

This song marks a departure from the dramatic sounds of Natalia’s Eurovision 2020 entry. Her new destination? The dancefloor. Judging by the snippet, “Sugar” is a dance-pop anthem that is bound to get everybody up and moving. Get ready for the biggest sugar rush of your life…intensified with some MARUV-style horns.

“Sugar” is a product of the Eurovision Dream Team — Philipp Kirkorov and Dimitris Kontopoulos. They’ve began working with Natalia on her Eurovision 2021 song shortly after the cancellation of the 2020 contest. Between them, the Dream Team have written and produced a number of Eurovision songs over the years, including Sergey Lazarev’s “You Are The Only One”, Ani Lorak’s “Shady Lady” and DoReDos’ “My Lucky Day”.
Also, in lieu of the Moldovan national final O Melodie Pentru Europa, Natalia is headed to Russia to premier “Sugar” at a glitzy red carpet event in Moscow. Our sources tell us it’s going to be a star-studded affair with several Eurovision alums in attendance. So, expect an appearance from the ever-flamboyant king of Eurovision, Dream Team member and “Sugar” songwriter himself, Philipp Kirkorov. The show will be available to watch on Natalia’s YouTube channel.
The “Sugar” music video will premier on YouTube on Thursday 4 March at 7 PM CET. At Eurovision, Natalia will perform in the first half of the second semi-final.
