Hungarian singer Joci Pápai has revealed the music video for his latest single Kirakós, which translates as Puzzle.

Joci Pápai (Eurovision 2017) from Hungary returns to the spotlight with his new song Kirakós (Puzzle), a track inspired by his personal journey and artistic life. Kirakós is a laid-back and groovy tune, venturing away from Joci’s more ethnic influenced songs, yet sung with his distinctive voice and in his native tongue.

The heartfelt lyrics include sentences as:

I finally hear it in my heart. Tell me again and I have faith in my footsteps. It was a good dream I dreamed. The jigsaw was assembled. Part of my world, just waiting for you.

In the accompanying music video, Joci Pápai takes a musical trip down memory lane, looking back at his successful participations in Hungary’s national selection A Dal and the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, performing at sold-out concerts, and becoming an award-winning and popular artist in Hungary, and beyond.

Joci proudly announced the release of Kirakós on his Facebook-page:

With thanks to everyone who has travelled with us! Finally, the puzzle is assembled! Thanks for sharing!

Köszönjük mindazoknak, akik velünk tartottak az úton!Végre a kirakós összeállt! :)A megosztásokat köszönjük! 🙂
