Albania in Eurovision 2022: Ronela Hajati “Sekret”

Born and raised in Tirana, Albania, Ronela Hajati began singing and dancing as a child. Her passion only grew and Ronela began to pursue a career in the business. It’s a career that has led to much success, with the Albanian songstress becoming one of the country’s brightest stars and achieving a number of top-charting songs.

At the end of December 2021, Ronela won Festivali i Këngës 60. This gave her the right to represent Albania at Eurovision 2022 in Turin. The version of “Sekret” we’ll hear on the Eurovision stage is not the exact same as that from FiK, as it’s gone through a revamp in the months since – adding in the English and Spanish lyrics.

“Sekret” was composed and written by Ronela herself. She gained some assistance from songwriter Caro for the English lyrics of the revamped version. These English lyrics are not translated directly from the Albanian lyrics of the original.

What do the “Sekret” lyrics mean?

Through “Sekret”, Ronela reminisces about the nights she spent with her secret lover. She lets us into the secret and shares all the juicy details of what went down.

This lover seemingly travelled a long distance to reach Ronela, but they found just what they were looking for. In fact, Ronela very much encourages their pursuit and succumbs to the desire: “Come babe, come put my hands on your body / Come on closer to me, me ya / Cause I love when ya near near”.

Ronela does not regret anything that happened between the two of them, and she is confident that her lover will keep the relationship a secret.

However, this passion is now over. Ronela opens the song by asking “do you remember those nights?”, and later notes that her lover is no longer around, “I do not know how else you left me”. And so she is left with only a memory, but also a desire for it to happen again: “Even today I want to say it […] You know I want it, give it to me / Give it to me, give it to me”.

Original text

Hey a kujton ato net?

Hajde çohu (x8)

Po vjen djali nga malet
And he came here to find it
Goin‘ mad when I whine it
Come babe, come put my hands on your body
Come on closer to me, me ya
Cause I love when ya near near
Xhamadanin me vija vija
Come baby put it on me ya

Hey, I will never regret
You will be my secret
Baby feel my body, toca, tocalo, I like it
Hey, I will never regret
You will keep my secret
Po un nuk e di, nuk e di si kam me u ni

Nuk e di si per tjeter m‘ke lon
Edhe sot un po du me ta thon
Edhe 1 edhe 2

Ta Marrsha!

Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey
Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey

You know I want it, damelo!
Ma ka lon, ma ka lon

Hey, I will never regret
You will be my secret
Baby feel my body, toca, tocalo, I like it
Hey, I will never regret
You will keep my secret
Po un nuk e di, nuk e di si kam me u ni

Nuk e di si per tjeter m‘ke lon
Edhe sot un po du me ta thon
Edhe 1 edhe 2

Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey
Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey

English translation

Hey, do you remember those nights?
They remain a secret….

Come on up x8

The boy is coming from the mountains
And he came here to find it
Goin‘ mad when I whine it
Come babe, come put my hands on your body
Come on closer to me, me ya
Cause I love when ya near near
“Xhamadanin me vija vija”
Come baby put it on me ya

Hey, I will never regret
You will be my secret
Baby feel my body, touch, touch it, I like it
Hey, I will never regret
You will keep my secret
But I do not know, I do not know how I got there

I do not know how else you left me
Even today I want to say it
Even 1 and 2
1, 2, 3
Take it!

Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey
Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey

You made my life like a game
Plane! You got it, you got it
You know I want it, give it to me
Give it to me, give it to me

Hey, I will never regret
You will be my secret
Baby feel my body, touch, touch it, I like it
Hey, I will never regret
You will keep my secret
But I do not know, I do not know how I got there

I do not know how else you left me
Even today I want to say it
Even 1 and 2
1, 2, 3
Take it!

Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey
Ma kadalë, ma kadalë, hey

I find this a bit outdated, and it’s quite obvious that this type of song might have it’s moment in the Eurovision bubble, but not outside of it.

You need to find an Albanian to translate the lyrics. Very inaccurate in some parts.

It’s not in the translated lyrics but Wiwibloggs writes that a woman “succumbs to the desire”. How sexist and old fashioned to talk about a woman’t sexuality in that way. You can do better Wiwibloggs!

Agreed! She is seducing him, not the other way around.

Ma kadalë means more slowly.
Ta marrsha is not “take it”, it’s more like “i wish to take it from you”

Xhamadani is a traditional albanian jacket. Xhamadani me vija vija means striped xhamadan. It is a reference to a veru popular albanian follk song called “xhamadani vija vija”
