After song release a few days ago on Spotify, the music-video for Aisel’s Azerbaijani Eurovision entry has already published

Earlier today, users could enjoy the release of the music video which Aisel from Azerbaijan has filmed for her Lisbon entry “X My Heart”.

The song has been written by some successful Eurovision composers: legend and Dream Team member Dimitris Kontopoulos and 2011 Eurovision winning entry songwriter Sandra Bjurman. We also remind you that Fokas Evangelinos, who was in charge of several memorable performances at the contest (“Shady Lady”; “This Is Our Night”; “Hold Me”; “You Are The Only One”) will also work on the staging for Aisel’s track in Portugal.

Greek Dance theater performer and director Roula Koutroubeli directed the music-video. “When I first heard the song I felt optimism, happiness, innocence and excitement. I knew from the very beginning that I had to use a child in this video-clip, this figure represents the inner child of Aisel and truly helped me to depict all the feelings that I had when I listened to the song.”, she revealed.
