by Christopher Smith

The Belarusian song is called “Like It and is performed by Zinaida Kupriyanovich.

ARTIST:

16 year old Zinaida Alexandrovna Kupriyanovich, sometimes known professionally as Zina Kupriyanovich or Zena, is a Belarusian singer, actress and television presenter. She has been chosen to represent Belarus in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with the song “Like It”.

Kupriyanovich competed in the Belarusian national final for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest twice; she placed fourth in 2015 with the song “Mir” and third in 2016 with the song “Kosmos”. In 2017, she placed third in the tenth season of Fabrika Zvyozd, the Russian version of Operación Triunfo. Afterwards, Kupriyanovich began a career in television presenting, and co-hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Minsk alongside Evgeny Perlin and Helena Meraai.

“Like It” is written by Yulia Kireeva who also co-produces the track with Russian composer and producer Viktor Drobysh.

LIVE PERFORMANCE:

OPINION:

“Like It” is fun stuff with a catchy, repetitive chorus and sung with fire and strength by Zena. It has grooves and moves all the way to the end with a good electro-synth backing track.

PREDICTION:

Zena should be applauded for her bravery at 16 years of age in performing to her biggest audience so far, but the song I fear will win no big points on the night.

LYRICS:

“I guess I forgotten to turn my phone
Off I’m outside my comfort zone
I’m tired of being lonely, tam-tara-ram
Nobody gonna like this, no
Okay, I don’t like these empty words
I’ll go even if it really hurts
It’s making me stronger, tam-tara-ram
I know it’s gonna be

Oh, what should I do?
It’s up to you, karma
Oh, I wish I knew
Give me a sign, karma
Just to remind you
I don’t give up (Give up)
I won’t give up, no
I’ll always try

Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let me in your heart)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let’s break the rules)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (I’ll share what I’ve got)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Baby, repeat my moves)

It feels crazy and a little wild
I know what is wrong and what is right
It’s making me wiser, tam-tara-ram
The universe is ours now
Okay, put your favourite sneakers on
And show your emotions on the floor
Add hashtag to find ya, tam-tara-ram
I know it’s gonna be

Oh, what should I do?
It’s up to you, karma
Oh, I wish I knew
Give me a sign, karma
Just to remind you
I don’t give up
I won’t give up, no
I’ll always try

Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let me in your heart)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let’s break the rules)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (I’ll share what I’ve got)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Baby, repeat my moves)

Heya, give me fly, give me fly, give me fly
Heya, like it too, like it too, like it too, baby

I feel the flow of energy
I should let go mistakes of me
I feel the flow of energy, yeah
And you go with me, baby

Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let me in your heart)
Yes, you gonna like it
Yes, you gonna like it (Let’s break the rules)
Yes, you gonna like it
