by Stratos Agadellis 394 views

There’s no escape from Karma… This is what Yianna Terzi says with her new single that saw its official release earlier today. The Greek 2018 hopeful is now back to the spotlight, with a brand new song, the lyrics of which contain messages against the inhuman phenomenon of bullying, which continues to be one of the most serious problems of our time.

“In this life, everything is Karma!”

This is Yianna Terzi‘s first release after her participation at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, where she represented Greece with Oniro mou. This song is a work that was being prepared for long and is marked by the start of her collaboration with her new record label, Minos EMI/Universal.

Excited about her new recording work, Yianna posted a part of her music video on Instagram, while writing the following about Karma, bullying and her song’s meaning:

Karma is not some magical force that punishes or rewards us. It’s simply the result of our actions. The song is inspired by the behavior of people who are Bullies. Temporary imposition won’t let them realize that in time what will matter most is the intention and energy behind the action. What you put in, is eventually what you’ll receive. Released by @minosemi_official
Thank you to all the people that helped me create Karma!

Στη ζωή αυτή.. “ΟΛΑ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΚΑΡΜΑ” Written by me & @teo_arkitekt Link in my bio Το Karma δεν είναι μια μαγική δύναμη που μας τιμωρεί ή μας επιβραβεύει. Είναι απλά το αποτέλεσμα των πράξεών μας. Το τραγούδι είναι εμπνευσμένο από την συμπεριφορά αυτών που κάνουν Bullying. Η προσωρινή επιβολή τους δεν τους αφήνει να συνειδητοποιήσουνε πως σημασία σε βάθος χρόνου έχει η ενέργεια που βάζουν πίσω από κάθε πράξη τους. Ότι πραγματικά δίνεις, αργά ή γρήγορα αυτό θα πάρεις πίσω. Released by @minosemi_official #CreateGoodKarma #AgainstBullying #Karma Karma is not some magical force that punishes or rewards us.

Karma was penned by Yianna herself, as well as Teo Arkitekt, who is no other than the young artist and music producer Theofilos Pouzmpouris, who represented Greece at Eurovision 2014, as part of the duo Freaky Fortune. The track has been released with both Greek and English lyrics, with its video clip featuring the Greek version. The video was directed by Angel Saft, while Tasos Xiarcho served as the art director and choreographer.

Here’s Karma’s music video, while below you may enjoy the song’s English version on Spotify:
