The 2020 and 2021 Eurovision artist for Bulgaria will release her new song and music video “Ugly Cry” on 20 November. The song was written during a songwriting camp for Eurovision in London. The music video of “Ugly Cry” will be premiered on VICTORIA’s YouTube channel and the track is already available for pre-save on all digital music platforms.
‘Ugly Cry’ shows a different side to VICTORIA; a heavier, hard hitting beat underlies tense strings as VICTORIA examines the difference between the public and private persona, imploring the listener to love her ‘better side’. Inspired by the difference in the way she was treated before and after Eurovision success, VICTORIA states that lyrically “my message with ‘Ugly Cry’ is simple – everyone deserves respect”. Co-written by VICTORIA and production duo Billen Ted, the song was created during a Eurovision songwriting session in London and was supported with production by the Swedish-Bulgarian Martin Masarov.
“Ugly Cry” is VICTORIA’s 3rd release for 2020 after her Eurovision 2020 song ”Tears Getting Sober” and her summer track “alright.”. In the first week of November VICTORIA met the Bulgarian Deputy prime Minister and Minister of Tourism Mariyana Nikolova in Sofia. The Ministry of Tourism pledged support for Eurovision Bulgaria and VICTORIA as one of the most suitable artists to represent the country abroad. VICTORIA is also expected to renew her partnership with the fintech company iCard for Eurovision 2021.
