Montenegro this year chose its Eurovision 2019 entry via “Montevizija 2019”, the Montenegrin national final organised by RTCG. Among 5 contestants  the group D-Moll won the national final with their entry “Heaven”  and will be flying the Montenegrin flag at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv.

A few words about D-Moll

They are all young between 16 and 21 years old.

The entry “Heaven”

The musicians behind Montenegro’s entry, Heaven, are Adis Eminić and Dejan Božović, while the song is written entirely in English, which is something that is happening for the 5th time in the country’w Eurovision history. The other four times the country was represented by a song entirely in English were in  2009 (Andrea Demirovic – Just Get Out of My Life), in 2012 (Rambo Amadeus – Euro Neuro), in 2016 (Highway – The Real Thing) and in 2017 (Slavko Kalezić – Space). Neither of these past participants managed to qualify to the final. 

D mol‘s winning entry of Montevizija 2019 “Heaven” has been revamped and now features also violinist Vili Ferdinandi. The accompanying music video was filmed at various locations throughout Montenegro including Podgorica, the old and small town of Stari Bar and Ulcinj, a town on the southern coast of Montenegro famous for its Long Beach, Ada Bojana Island and its ancient castle. The music video also features violinist Vili Ferdinandi and pupils from Žabljaka, a small town in northern Montenegro in the centre of the Durmitor mountain region. It is the highest situated town of the Balkans.

Lyrics of “Heaven”

Life
Life was once so lonely
Heartbreak was the only
Thing you left for me
 
My life
My life was so empty
And love was the furthest
Furthest thing from me
 
I got used to starting overs
Being good, but not good enough
I was ready to give up, but
Now you came into my life
 
Fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
Straight into your heart
 
Fallin’
I’ll catch you while you’re falling
I hear your heart callin’
Into my arms
 
Fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
Straight into your heart
 
Fallin’
I’ll catch you while you’re falling
I hear your heart callin’
Into my arms
 
Now I have you here beside me
Caressing my body
I need nothing more
Nothing more
 
There’s no place
I’d rather be
As the kindle glow flees
But with you right here
 
I got used to feeling naked
Walking blind with hanging heart
I was ready to give up, but
Now you came into my life
 
Fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
Straight into your heart
 
Fallin’
I’ll catch you while you’re falling
I hear your heart callin’
Into my arms
 
Fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
I’m in heaven fallin’
Straight into your heart
 
Fallin’
I’ll catch you while you’re falling
I hear your heart callin’
Into my arms
 
Fallin’
