We all knew Ronela Hajati was a figurative queen. Now, in the official music video for her song “Sekret”, we see her getting literal as she portrays an ancient Albanian queen with a very storied past. The music video includes her revamped version of the song, which she’ll compete with at Eurovision 2022 in Torino.
The video, which goes heavy on the hair extensions, shows us everything from lovers getting down to Ronela’s man being chained up in a dungeon. But we aren’t talking kink — we’re talking torment. Can she save him in time? Watch the video to see if our girl breathes fire…
Ronela, who had the Festivali i Kenges jury say bye to ballads, has collaborated with well-known producer and songwriter Raoul Lionel Chen, better known as Diztortion. He’s famous for his work with Stylo G, Lethal Bizzle, Tinnie Timpah and more.
The revamped version is mostly in English. But it also contains Albanian portions, which fans adored at FiK, and also some Spanish to celebrate her Spanish fans, who have been super supportive from the very first day Sekret was released. We should point out that Ronela Hajati is also a good Spanish speaker.
For the video of the song, Ronela worked with famous Albanian producer and TV host, Ledion Lico, and stylist Niko Komani. In the video, Ronela portrays an Albanian queen who suffers and fights for love after her secret is revealed. During the video, Albanian actor, Florim Agalliu, joins her as her love interest.
In her recent interviews Ronela has revealed that her Eurovision performance will go in a different direction to her music video and earlier stage show. While she performed in Festivali i Kenges as a warrior, in her video she is the Queen of Albania, so who knows what she will bring in the stage in Turin.
