The 2005 Eurovision winner and one of the best-selling artists in Greece, Helena Paparizou is at her best with the release of her brand new single, the ballad Kati skotino. The song is now available and is probably expected to become one more smash hit!

Something dark…

It was worth the wait! Through an atmospheric video clip, Helena Paparizou presents her latest recording work, composed and produced by the ARCADE team, which consists of Anastasios Rammos, Pavlos Manolis, Diveno and Gabriel Russel.

The video clip was shot two weeks ago in Athens, with the guest appearance of the Israeli model Shahar Kaikov and under the directing instructions of Alex Konstantinidis.

Kati skotino has been airing on all Greek radio stations since 8 October, while today saw its release on all online platforms, like YouTube, Spotify and iTunes. Here is Minos EMI / Universal (Paparizou’s record label) press release regarding the song’s lyrics:

Every person has a dark side in his life.

But a relationship can not work when there is “Something dark” between the couple, and so there will forever be the danger of total wear on that bridge that unites their love…

But now words are enough; time to listen to the song and enjoy the video! Which are your impressions?

At the same time, Helena’s successful career on TV continues with her 3rd consecutive participation as a jury member on The Voice of Greece show, together with Sakis Rouvas, Panos Mouzourakis and Kostis Maraveyas. The show airs from Tuesday to Thursday at 21:00 local time on SKAI TV.

Helena Paparizou at Eurovision

Helena Paparizou has appeared on the Eurovision stage twice. Her very first participation took place back in 2001, as part of the duo Antique, which represented Greece with the song Die for you. Having been one of the favourites for the victory in Copenhagen, they finally came 3rd behind Estonia and Denmark, achieving the best Eurovision result for the Balkan country at that time.

But Helena was meant to go on and reach the top! 4 years later, she was internally selected by the Greek broadcaster ERT to represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, this time as a solo artist. Following a national final with 3 candidate entries, Helena flew to Kyiv with the song My number one, composed by Christos Dantis and Natalia Germanou.

With a total of 230 points, she brought the Eurovision trophy to Greek soil, for the first time in the country’s history. So far, this has been the only Eurovision victory for Greece.
