ALBANIA – The official music video for “Skret,” Ronela Hajati’s Turin song, was published a few minutes ago by Albanian national television RTSH. Last December, the musician won Festivali I Kenges, allowing her to represent her nation at Eurovision 2022.
The video clip also features a new version of the song, which will be the final version with which Albania will compete in the competition. You may listen to the song and view the video clip by clicking on the links below:

Ronela Hajati is the artist that Albania are sending to represent them at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest. She’ll compete with the song ‘Sekret’.
She makes her way to Turin via a winning turn at the 60th Festivali i Këngës. The song contest is a beloved annual tradition in Albania, and has more recently been used to select the country’s Eurovision entries. Ronela triumphed over 19 other competing acts, with some of Albania’s brightest names in pop music amongst them.
Ronela herself is no stranger to standing out and making an impression on the stages of Albania’s most prestigious shows. A veritable industry stalwart at the age of 32, a large part of Ronela’s success can be attributed to her drive and commitment towards putting herself out there, appearing on a whole host of festivals, contests and TV talent shows in the past decade. Kënga Magjike, Poleposition, Star Academy Albania, Kerkohet Një Yll and Ethet e Së Premtes Mbrëma are just some of the platforms that Ronela has graced with her star-power presence, and she’s even popped up competing on a series of Dancing With The Stars Albania.
But even if you missed that particular season of Dancing With The Stars Albania, you’ll already be familiar with Ronela’s skills in the choreography department should you have had the foresight to have checked out her Festivali i Këngës performance of Sekret. It’s a song that the multi-talented Ronela wrote herself (with production by Marko Polo). The triple-threat Ronela has had her compositions sought after by other artists, too – twice by Albania’s 2021 Eurovision Song Contest representative Anxhela Peristeri, for example.
Sekret is one surefire hit that Ronela Hajati was smart enough to save for herself, however. The latest in a lengthy run of Albanian chart smashes for the artist, it’s a ‘sekret’ that the whole of Europe will be fortunate enough to be let in on, when they tune in to Turin in May.
