Meet WRS, Romania representative in Eurovision 2022

This year Romania has chosen WRS as its representative on Eurovision 2022 that will take place in Turin this month with the song “Llámame”. But who is WRS? In this article you will have the opportunity to know more about Romania’s singer for Eurovision 2022.

About WRS

Andrei Ionuț Ursu (Buzău, 16 January 1993), professionally known as WRS is a dancer, who started dancing at the age of 12, encouraged by his parents, folk dancers, and is also a singer and songwriter.

Before starting his career as an artist, he worked as a dancer for famous artists and was part of the corps de ballet in TV shows. In 2015, he started his musical career in the boy band Shot. After two years, he left the project, moved to London and started composing music. In January 2020, he signed with Global Records and started his electropop music project under the stage name WRS.

He debuted with the song “Why”, which garnered over one million views on YouTube and four hundred thousand plays on Spotify. The singles “Amore” featuring İlkan Günüç and “Tsunami” were successful both digitally and on the radio, topping the music charts in Romania and Bulgaria.

TVR held its national pre-selection where the jury and the televote unanimously decided that WRS should represent the country at Eurovision with “Call Me”.

WRS was the main favourite since their qualification for the final, and after the big favourites were knocked out of the competition in the previous rounds, it seems that WRS took over, and his rendition of “Call me” went viral on social media from that moment on.

Romania has been participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since 1994. Their best result has been two third places with “Let Me Try” in 2005 and in 2010 with the song “Playing With Fire” performed by Paula Seling and Ovi.

Lyrics

Knew that I was different than the others
They never liked you
Try to keep my head above the water
But you’re makin’ it so hard to

What if they’re gonna find out?
Nobody’s gonna like it
We get away
Need you to stay
What if they’re gonna find out?
Nobody’s gonna like it
We get away

Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame
Llámame, llámame
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame
Llámame, llámame
(Hola, mi bebé)

Love cannot be stopped by anybody
‘Cause it’s so true
I show it to the world, ‘cause I won’t hide it
Are you down to believe intenser?

What if they’re gonna find out?
Nobody’s gonna like it
We get away
Need you to stay
What if they’re gonna find out?
Nobody’s gonna like it
We get away
Need you to stay

Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame
Llámame, llámame
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame

And when you say my name
My world’s crumbling
I feel complete, all I need is your mystic touch
And what about it now?
I’ll keep you safe and sound
We’re so in love

Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame
Llámame, llámame
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Hola, mi bebé-bé
Llámame, llámame
Llámame, llámame
(Hola, mi bebé)
