Interview: Malta's Destiny on Eurovision 2021 entry "Je Me Casse"

“When I start singing, I’m a different person.” Those were the words of a 13-year-old Destiny Chukunyere, fresh off of her Junior Eurovision 2015 victory. And more than five years later, as she gears up to sing “Je Me Casse” for Malta at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, that feeling still rings true for Malta’s shining star.

Indeed, it would be difficult to detect Destiny’s timid nature beneath the powerful pop persona we see on stage and in her music videos. But in a recent interview with wiwibloggs, the 18-year-old songstress revealed that she’s shyer than she seems. “When I’m off stage, I’m quite shy, actually. I’m shy but no-one knows it”, Destiny told our William. “When I’m on stage, it’s my time to shine.”

And shine she will. At Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, Destiny is set to sing “Je Me Casse”.  An electro-swing pop jam, Destiny says it was love at first listen. “I started believing in the song from day one. I was like, ‘I need to have this song.’ It literally describes me as a person, everything about me, it fits perfectly to Destiny,” she said. “If there’s true love in music, I fell in love once again.”

Many others are loving it, too. “Je Me Casse” is currently the bookmakers favourite to win the song contest and bring Malta its first Eurovision victory. But Destiny isn’t letting that pressure get to her. In fact, the buzz inspires her give it her all. “These things keep me going. Knowing that I have a nation supporting me and waiting for the day to arrive, I can’t wait to perform,” Destiny explained. “The positive reactions are helping me to work harder and deliver the best performance ever.”

Malta’s Destiny on “Je Me Casse”

Though it’s certainly a dance floor filler, “Je Me Casse” has a deeper meaning. Its lyrics channel female empowerment and encourage women to pursue their dreams. “It’s not about the fact that men aren’t important in our lives,” she says. “I want to put it out there as a fact — men are important in our lives because they help us a lot. It’s more about women not needing men to be successful, to be strong, to be powerful and to be legendary. We can be powerful and we can be independent without a man.”

And, of course, Destiny is looking to bring a strong, powerful and legendary performance to Rotterdam. The singer recently revealed that she’s working with Swedish choreographer Sacha Jean-Baptise on the “Je Me Casse” staging — and also shared some snaps from inside the Stockholm dance studio, working hard at perfecting her performance. “Stockholm was all about making sure that my moves are perfect”, Destiny said in our interview. “There’s still a lot of work to do. But I really enjoyed it with Sacha and her team. They are amazing, and I’m so happy to have this amazing team behind me.”

As for the staging itself? Well, Destiny’s keeping her cards close to her chest. “Secrets are made to be secrets,” she said, gesturing to seal her lips as William quizzed her about her live-on-tape recording.

A post shared by Destiny (@destinyofficial_x)

At Eurovision 2019, Destiny provided backing vocals for Malta’s Michela on “Chameleon”. In our interview, she dished about her experience in Tel Aviv and how it compares to the junior edition. “It’s the same as Junior Eurovision because you meet a lot of new people,” she said. “Obviously, it’s a bit more stressful and harsh, I think.” But she’s ready to hit the stage and slay no matter what. “I really enjoyed being Michela’s backing vocalist. It taught me a lot because I saw what happened at Eurovision, so I think I’m more prepared now.”

Before our interview ended, Destiny also taught us a very important Maltese phrase — the local equivalent of her song title, “Mur Ħalini!”, which means “leave me alone!”

So now, as Destiny gears up for Rotterdam, many fans have their sights set on Valletta 2022. But no matter the result at Eurovision, one thing is certain — Destiny is #DestinedForGreatness and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Malta’s new queen.

What do you think? Are you loving her laugh and smile as much as we are? What staging concept do you envision? Let us know in the comments below.

My worry that this song will be hard to pull off live. I have every faith that Destiny can sing, I just find it uneasy on the ear when she slips from vocal diva to tesco value rap and then into that vocoder for the key line in the chorus. I think the whole thing could come across as cringe tv if she’s not careful.

The way she acts in the video and the lyrical content of the song is so mature. But when you listen her interviews you realized she is still a child, which is totally fine. I have never liked mismatches between the song and the artist, but okay, my views on this particular case might be wrong.

I don’t think Destiny is Netta wannabe…it’s just similar story but there is huge difference between both…I don’t see Destiny flying high on scoreboard as much as Netta though..but somewhere on the left hand side of scoreboard why not..that depends on the night as this is competition…I wouldn’t want to say about Destiny but the song as this is song contest not contestant contest

Why is Destiny a Netta-wannabe because her song is about female empowerment that is a cheap argument there has been female empowerment songs in ESC before Netta.Then is Tamara North Macedonia 2019 also a Netta-wannabe because her song is also about female empowerment.Also she did not write en produce the song.

If you are wondering why greece is going up the betting odds slowly… Greece’s performance of “Last Dance” will feature “something impressive if successful”, states De Telegraaf. Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has revealed that Greece’s performance in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest will feature “something never seen” at the contest. Reports state that there are “several risks” to the performance, but if they succeed it “will be something impressive”. Some rumours state that the performance could feature elements related to Greek mythology, as Pegasus features in the music video, but nothing has been confirmed. The Greek delegation is currently continuing… Read more »

I’m pretty sure many views are fake but also I calculated the likes/view for all songs on 1st April and Malta had 2.38 million views then . Maybe you misread a 2.8 as 1.8 ?

Still , the number of likes to views ratio is another “proof” that Malta is back to shady ways of PR.

Like it or not, Malta is coming in the top 2 this year. Everything about the entry seems ‘perfect’, and thankfully Destiny’s charisma and personality is enough to offset any qualms that the song or the performance seems to ‘plastic’. As much as eurofans hate it, the audience will love it, and it really just comes down to whose opinion ends up meaning more.

This is a credible song with an empowering message sung by an incredibly capable vocalist. This is the type of entry than an average viewer and juror will really respond to.

‘Arcade’ theme was love in general, same with ‘Amar Pelos Dois’ and ‘Running Scared’. They had the same theme, yet, they won the contest. Many previous winners had songs that dealt with love too like ‘Fairytale’ or ‘Fly On The Wings Of Love’. We can’t have winners winning with unique concept all the time. There aren’t a lot of subjects to deal with in music.

Oh god, another one here. I’m gonna start a counter of every eurofan that are uselessly criticizing Malta in order to make their favourite entries — which are also contenders to win ESC, what a coincidence — sound better.

If you’re loving original entries,what about the fact that ‘Tout L’Univers’ has been written or composed — i dont really remember — by one of the same artist that collab on Duncan winning song ? Isn’t a proof that there’s a lack of originality with Swiss entry to use the same songwriter/producer than the one of ‘Arcade’ ?

That’s what happens with recycled songs. And that’s why the song doesn’t suit her personality !

Unpopular opinion: I think the quote “Mur ?alini” would have worked better as a verse in the song and as title than “Je me casse”.

First of all, it’s always Destiny’s time to shine. She’s a natural born star. But what I’d like to know is if the broadcaster gave her the demo and told her it’s her song and she decided to love it, or if she really loved and decided for herself to sing this song, among other choices. To me, it sounds like playing the PR game and playing it hard. Of course, I can only assume and I’m biased because I was hoping for a better song.

I have the exact same feeling but I want to believe what she says and to think that she fell in love without being forced to 😛
The song is not the best but she succeeds to make it enjoyable.

A better song? Why all the negativity? When I heard the song I instantly sad this can be a winner…

Stop bullying people for expressing their opinion. Calling someone’s opinion “pointless” is straight up bullying.

If pointless comments are written as a response to my comments which are also just opinions, I will point out how pointless they are. If you think that’s bullying, go find a safe space. You are not telling me what to stop doing, Mr Pointless 2. Was that bullying? Careful: rhetorical question.

Hoping for a better song when this is the favorite to win? The fact that you like Norway’s song better than this one shows that you are out of touch with the majority of people. You are entitled to your opinions and to be out of touch of course, but your taste doesn’t reflect how things will go in the contest.

As if the bets are to decide our taste of the song. We are free to dislike a song and hope that the much talented singer got a much better song than something that was manufactured for a different singer and passed on to her. The betting odds at best are dubious.Look at the pattern of the bets. And the Excessive PR game that the delegation is playing , making my favourite ESC site appear prejudiced which i know they are not doing out of free will is something that I’m absolutely allowed to “hate “. The song I don’t… Read more »

I think they got it wrong with Michela last year. They deliberately avoided all the preview shows which would have given her much-needed experience. The boy from Belgium also looked all over the shop even though he had a good song.

Yup , she had a better song but she lacked in confidence. You’re absolutely right in both your assessments of young artists not being given the opportunity to overcome their nerves.

It must also have been intimidating to be told Destiny is your backing vocalist. I would feel like I was being told to mark Cristiano Ronaldo. And who can forget poor Blanche who looked petrified.

You are free to like or dislike whatever you want. But this is a song competition and these songs are competing against each other. The purpose of entering a song is to do as well as possible in the competition.

Exactly . So if we want a country to win or an artist to do good , we would definitely hope they had a “better” song . When someone will get all 12 points from all televotes and Jury , only then they would have run out of scope to have done better.

Even if a country wins , Portugal 2017 , I am allowed to wish that they had a better song for my taste so that I could enjoy the winner. That doesn’t diminish their win , that doesn’t diminish my opinion.

@Vanilla since you are apparently the expert here – where do you project Destiny’s song that you don’t like to finish in the final. And where you do project your favorite Tix to finish in the final (assuming you project it to qualify)? Serious question.

I’m not projecting anything, I’m just expressing my personal taste. I love Destiny, I find her song disappointing. So what if she is number 1 in the odds? Does that mean I have to love the song? I’d be super happy for her personally if she wins Eurovision. And yet I still find the song weak. She elevates it a lot for sure. I’m not predicting anybody to win. I don’t see a winner. Someone has to win and it might as well be Destiny but I don’t think so and it’s definitely not a sure thing. I don’t claim… Read more »

Last time I checked this is a song competition. Malta is competing against Norway directly. I asked a simple question – where do you think these songs will place and do you believe Malta will place higher than Norway?
You criticize Destiny’s song, but the point of the entry is to do well at the competition. This isn’t a song she’s releasing on some album. You are so opinionated, posting on every article, but you’re afraid to provide an opinion on the actual competition part of Eurovision. That says it all.

I’m supposed to predict the outcome without having watched a single performance or rehearsal? Your ignorant comment says it all. You are the epitome of being opinionated. According to you, I need to adjust personal opinions to the odds. I don’t think I can have a fruitful discussion with you.

For sure the song is weak and I’m pretty certain it has been passed around other countries. Agree Top 10 finish for Norway. Ana will more than likely be my number one (when I submit my votes). I really hope Belgium qualify. Sweden likely to occupy my 39th position. Looks like we are roughly on the same page!

I agree with everything you said. How opinionated we are, disagreeing with the almighty odds.

I don’t disagree with the odds as they are based on what is likely to happen. They are no reflection of merit or quality. I backed Malta to win before the song came out but it does not make me feel any better. I won quite a lot of money on “Running Scared” though I really disliked it. But that’s what betting is all about! I’m starting to think Switzerland is the most likely winner will keep eye on odds as it may be game over when the rehearsals start.

I think it’s pretty hilarious that the person who poses as the biggest expert here, voices his opinion 100x a day, puts down other opinions, calls people names who disagree with him – then is a big scaredy cat to make a simple projection of how a song will do in the actual competition. Ohhh you are such an expert but you are unable to make any projections unless you see all the rehearsals? You are too scared to be proven wrong, that’s the real reason.

I literally said I have no clue who will win. I don’t know and I don’t wanna know. Did it ever occur to you that not everyone likes to make predictions? That not knowing is part of the fun? The only one calling me an expert is you, in case you haven’t noticed. The only one pretending to know the future is you. The only thing I would be scared about is if I had such low intelligence as you, obviously unable to grasp the simplest meanings of my comments. Talking to you is pointless, so I’m going to stop… Read more »
