Senhit San Marino Eurovision 2021 Adrenalina

The Wiwi Jury — our in-house team of music unprofessionals — is reviewing and rating the 39 competing songs in Eurovision 2021. Next we listen to San Marino’s Senhit and her song “Adrenalina”. Did we feel the rush? Read on to find out!

Senhit – “Adrenalina”

“Adrenalina” reviews

Kristín: The Freaky Queen is back and is more than welcome. “Adrenalina” is a juicy dance number and despite me being sceptical at first about Flo Rida’s participation here, they managed to sell it to me without hassle. This might not be the best Latino infused R’nB song in 21st century Eurovision, but it is by far the most enjoyable. I completely get and support San Marino’s betting odds this year, because both Senhit and “Adrenalina” are a major force to be reckoned with when the competition kicks off for real. There is not a shadow of a doubt that Senhit will be bringing everything she has and she will deliver. Let’s just hope all the wigs will fit into her hand luggage!

Score: 8.5

Calvin: Nothing seems impossible for Senhit. She is the personification of the Eurovision spirit and you can feel the fun she’s having. Knowing which bits and pieces she had to improve from last year, she single-handedly shocked everyone with the drop of “Adrenalina”. A slick uptempo-production with a memorable hook. Gone are the days of entries from San Marino as guilty pleasures. This is an attack for the victory. It’s surely not the most innovative song of the year, but there’s no need to have 39 interpretations of uniqueness. I want to dance, I want to sing along and I want to watch her perform. She ticks all the boxes.

Score: 9

Ron: “Adrenalina” is a great up-tempo pop track with impressive production. I really like its Middle Eastern sounds. Senhit is a great performer that really fits into this song, she has so much charisma and sassiness and she is one of the most likeable artists of this year’s Eurovision. This is such a huge change from her previous Eurovision entry from 2011. “Adrenalina” feels much more Senhit and I love it. Obviously, when we look at San Marino’s entries at Eurovision, this is among its best efforts, yet I feel like it’s a bit overrated this year. It’s a great track that I enjoy listening to when it comes on, however, it is a bit average and generic – we’ve heard those kinds of songs before so many times. It’s good but not amazing, yet maybe amazing staging will make me raise my score at Eurovision.

Score: 5

Renske: If you want to be filled with energy, San Marino’s entry is the one to go to. Somehow, it is a bit of a time machine back to 2011, when performers such as Kesha and Rita Ora were dominating the world charts. “Adrenalina” is very loud. However, the loudest child in the class does not always turn out to be the most loved one or the brightest. At the same time, the amount of attention and time that was invested in this song, including a songwriting team made up of about ten people, says a lot about its production quality.

Score: 8

Sebastian: Like the little engine that could, It’s really hard to not like a Sammarinese entry, as they always add an injection of humility and character to the contest. That said, San Marino and Senhit have pulled out all the stops to show that they can be all class. “Adrenalina” is Latin-pop, by the numbers, delivered in a superior package worthy of any national final. A potential cameo by Flo Rida turns Adrenalina up to 11, and really makes it a force to be reckoned with. The only potential weakness to the song is that, for as much character Senhit possesses and adds to the track, her vocals may not be strong enough to match the song.

Score: 9

Senhit – “Adrenalina” rankings

In the Wiwi Jury we have 24 jurors but only have room for five reviews. The remaining scores are below:

Antranig: 9.5

What I found to be interesting is not only that Tobias gives (almost) only bad scores, but also that the ONLY two reviews he actually wrote are the positive ones for Sweden and Cyprus.

Why ”of course”? Croatia is in my teens this year, and the winner is my second favorite from Dora. In 2019, The Dream was firmly in my bottom 5. Are you saying that people over-hype their own country’s entry by default? If so, that is the definition of a ”biased score” that should be dropped from the overall rating instead of outliers (which just might be by people who honestly love / dislike entry on its own merits).

Look, I’m a Stan Marino through and through. And I’m happy that for once they’re among the favourites (wasn’t that also the case in 2013, though?). But I gotta be honest here, “Adrenalina” doesn’t get my adrenaline going. For a Freaky Queen’s offering, this song isn’t freaky at all, it unrelentingly discards her radiant extravagance and pop art fascinations for the sake of a flashy semi-ethnic drop and ice-cold half-hearted lyrics. There’s nothing wrong with Senhit’s entry per se, I has a decent flow and it has a rapping Flo as well (whose appearance, while polarising, at least shakes things… Read more »

I never caught myself listening to this song. The verses, the chorus, the rap bit, everything just feels one note and a bit outdated to me, I love the ethnic drop though. It should qualify and I want her to get a better result than Serhat, but that’s it tbh, it’s excited that San Marino, for once, doesn’t suck, but when you separate the song from the country, it’s just an average outdated pop song from the late 2000s. If we were talking Eurovision 2010, then yes, it would’ve been an outstanding song, and even then it wouldn’t have aged… Read more »

When I first heard this song I enjoyed it, but later on I realized my enjoyment came only from the fact that it was San Marino, the microstate amongst giants that I tend to root for no matter what, and not from the actual song. To me this actually sounds outdated as is and adding Flo-rida just made it sound like it came straight out of 2011.
I’ll give it a 5.. for effort.

SAN MARINO – It is satisfying to see an underdog succeeding. San Marino and Senhit came back much stronger, and the result of their effort is being appreciated by fans. Adrenalina still kept their signature camp, but polished it to the point where it feels like a contender. After the 2018 fiasco, San Marino learned its lesson on how to incorporate rap verses, and inviting Flo Rida was a great idea. In a way, this is an ethnic pop wall of sound, turned up to 11 throughout the 3 minutes. It also contains some previously seen ideas, but the Eritrean… Read more »

From the pure pop entries, it’s the most cohesive. Not inventive, but has its charms like t
he Eritrean touch and how Senhit sings “adrenalina”. I’m normally someone that rejects when a rapper invades a pop track, but Flo Rida merges well and keeps the flow intact. In fact, the studio version runs so smoothly, that the challenge is to translate the same vibe to the stage. In case Flo Rida can’t show up, I hope they replace him and avoid using him as a pre-recorded “name-dropping” accessory. 7.25

The Eritrean touch is the instrumental hook. To me, it sounds almost Middle Eastern, but I guess that’s just my lack of Eritrean music knowledge. If you can’t hear the Eritrean components, listen to the instrumental version!

Reply to  Apollo

Don’t get me wrong guys, I wouldn’t be able to say it’s Eritrean if my life depended on it, because I’m far from an expert and don’t know a thing about their culture. But I read Senhit mentioning it in a few interviews. Here’s something that was published in Eurovision’s official site:

Roots are important to Senhit, which is why she made sure that two instruments from her parent’s home country of Eritrea were blended into the song’s mix: a krar (a bowl-shaped lyre) and the kebero (double-headed, conical hand drum) can be heard throughout the track.

Reply to  Sabrina

I’m actually with Vanilla Bean on this one, I think the drop is from the same extension pack we already know from the Azeri song. 😉
I can hear a very prominent drum that could be the one she describes, the kebero, but if there’s the sound of a lyre somewhere, it’s buried indistinguishably in the backing track. The hook in the drop is not played by a lyre, I’d say it’s some kind of woodwind, like an oboe or something.

Reply to  Tibor

Well, I’m just trusting Senhit’s words and intentions. But in this track I don’t see any intention whatsoever of selling it as ethno-pop. It’s just a nice touch, but they go full pop with this one.

And to keep it all in the same reply: I agree that a feat shouldn’t count as backing vocals. At the same time I’m curious to find out what EBU would rule about it, I insist that I hope Flo Rida shows up so we can avoid the drama. But I’m a rare Eurovision fan that don’t like drama. 😛

Well, I guess even the biggest fans of the song will admit that Flo Rida was brought to the track so people would talk about it. It wouldn’t work with me, because I’m not into rap and I only knew him by name, but based on what I’ve seen on Twitter and Youtube, some people see it as a huge thing. As long he’ll be there on the stage, I’m OK with that (though I hope this doesn’t start an Eurovision trend). But if he can’t be there, he would be just a bait. And there’s the elephant in the… Read more »

I’ll always defend anyone’s right to rate entries however they please. That is the only way to assure democracy. However, it would be nice to hear from Tobias himself why he systematically gives poor ratings to majority of entries every year. Does he really think that the majority of all ESC entries are bad? It’s perhaps not my business to know, but I am curious.

I dont dislike this song and im certain its going to qualify but i feel like it might be that one song that on final night everyone thinks is going to score well but then it flops. Really high score on this jury and high in the OGAE poll but on the EuroJury poll about 27 countries have voted so far and only 2 have given San Marino any points at all.

I actually think most of San Marino’s entries are beautiful, it’s just the fact that their BAD entries (take 2017 for example) seem more likeable to the audience than the same song but presented by e.g. Slovenia (in 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 San Marino was in my top10)

It’s funny how Senhit went from having a 2 song national final where both songs were average at best in 2020 to delivering an absolute banger in 2021. I don’t know if that energy will translate to the stage but I hope San Marino will qualify again. After the travesty that was Crisalide not qualifying, I’m not 100% sure.

The best pop song that the contest serves this year.
But lets be honest. The song is going to flop during the lives in May.
Unfortunately, Senhit does not suffice to perform a song like this.
I still hope though it will remain in top10.

For me personally, San Marino’s most impressive accomplishment is to go from Jenny B. to Flo Rida in just three years – although I will admit that I had to google the latter, when everybody started getting excited because of his participation. No wonder did I not know who he was, because apparently he hasn’t published anything noteworthy since 2014 – and in 2014 I was following the charts even less thoroughly than I do today (so not at all). But I keep asking myself: What if Flo Rida won’t be travelling to Rotterdam? Will Senhit do the rap? Will… Read more »

I see he only gives a high score to songs with Swedish production, so I’m expecting a 8-9 for Malta

Bias for EBU president !
Sweden is so underrated…9 ? Why ?

Think in his try to be objective, he diminished the well deserved 17…to the humble 9.

You can’t spell Tobias without bias.

I must say it is slightly overrated in my honest opinion. Although it sounds pleasant, it is as Ron said quite “generic” and “average” despite the amazing team of producers behind it, that’s quite unnerving to see this result. Also, many people who will watch Eurovision wouldn’t even know whats the story behind Sammarinese entries before…so for them it would be just another song to listen and judge. So, besides the very classical structure of the song as well as musicality and lyricism, my worries concern about the vocal power of it, and the visuals that we will be offered.… Read more »

A lot of people complained about Efendi recycling Cleopatra this year, so I think it is fair to also complain about Senhit recycling another 2020 song – Moves, by Suzi P.

If only the real world were as eco-friendly as more and more Eurovision delegations. Climate change would be no problem at all.

Yes, of Moves, which was then recycled into Adrenalina.

Ron wrote all the things I’d say about this, so no need for me to say anything more.

Although the studio version of this song is undoubtedly catchy and very likeable, I do worry about how this will do at eurovision. I worry about the staging and possibly the vocals because if they are not excellent, I could see jurors not rewarding this in the semi. I think it deserves to qualify but it’s also not a certain qualifier. Studio version, this is a 9/10 for me it’s excellent, I’m very worried about the live performance though.

Well, I like the song, and Senhit deserves a good result in the final, but I have a strong feeling that Adrenalina is only a eurofan favorite, like Valentine in 2013, and could be a big failure
7/10

Could be. I genuinely adored “Crisalide”. I thought it was one of the best songs in its year and still the best entry of the country to date. (I still don’t get why Ralph Siegel keeps peddling rubbish to various countries when he can obviously write very good songs.) But the live performance completely fell apart, in my opinion. It looked cheap, not grand. To make things worse, the producers did a horrible job catching the performance at all behind the sea of flags.

Agree, Crisalide is the best Sammarinese entry so far, Valentina deserved more on the stage.

With or without Flo-Rida, I think this is definitely the bop of the year. It’s my guilty pleasure anyway and while it’s not reinventing the wheel or anything, it’s just a fun guilt free rush of sugar and I definitely love it. One of my favourites too. The fact that this is from San Marino is remarkable too. Every year people don’t really pay them much attention, then bam they give us the best bop of the year and guest vocals by the likes of Flo Rida. Nobody was expecting it. First ever San Marinese song in my playlist and… Read more »
