Doko is now based mostly in Sweden and has penned for previous Eurovision winner Mans Zelmerlow.
Her probable Eurovision track was initially pitched to Jennifer Lopez.
“It was near to becoming recorded by J-Lo Baz Luhrmann was searching to it for The Get Down much too. This track has experienced lots of incarnations and life, it was penned 5 yrs in the past, so I have re-penned the lyrics so I relate to it far more now. It is the present that retains on providing. It is hardly ever observed the ideal property. It’s possible I was often the just one that was intended to launch it.”
Hooper stated the entice of Eurovision was much too considerably to resist.

It ticks my ‘Never assumed I…’ checklist.
“Music is intended to be enjoyable, I do not see it as a levels of competition. I believe you can see from the way I have been releasing solo tunes considering that Killing Heidi, I definitely do not do it to be prime of the pops or to have the most streams or what ever.
