The song is a dance banger of the type that Cyprus do so well nowadays, with a bit of Spanish flavour. It was written by Jimmy Thornfeldt, Laurell Barker, Oxa and Thomas Stengaard.

Elena Tsagkrinou was born in Athens, Greece on November 16, 1994. She first appeared on television in the Greek version of “Got Talent”, having attended musical school as a youngster. In 2013, Elena became the lead singer of the band, Otherview. Their first two songs, “What You Want” and  “O Giros tou Kosmou” were released as video singles. In 2018, Elena left the band. Later in the year, she released her first solo song, “Pame Ap’ Tin Arhi” and an English version, “Summer Romance”. She followed up with a string of single releases the following year, trying to build up her career.

In 2020, she released the video, “Pare Me Agkalia” with the Greek rapper, Mike, who also happens to be her boyfriend.
