Nina Zilli

“Today I write what I sing. And my name is Nina Zilli”. Nina Zilli is a real tornado, a volcano. She is so besotted with music that her passion wins you over before you have even had the chance to listen to one of her songs. Nina comes from a small town in Val Trebbia which she left early on for Ireland, the US, anywhere her dreams would take her. She will sing L'Amore È Femmina / Out Of Love in the Final of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku.

Starting as a multi-faceted artist, with many musical ventures behind, Nina Zilli found time and passion to write songs about everything and to present herself as a solo singer. From her magical hat of wonders, Nina pulled out six songs and released an EP in 2009. It included 50mila, the debut single with Giuliano Palma picked by Ferzan Ozpetek for his film Mine Vaganti, and cult cover You Can’t Hurry Love by the Supremes in Italian– L’Amore Verrà



Nina Zilli debuted in Sanremo in 2010 with L’Uomo Che Amava Le Donne and won the ‘Mia Martini’ Critics’ Award and the Press, Radio & TV Award as well as the Best Live Performance at the Newcomer's category. This latter award was assigned to Nina by "Assomusica" for her distinctive act, her excellent stage presence, her remarkable flair for performing live and a brilliant talent for interacting with the audience; all features that are crucial to transform live music into pure emotion.

She then released her album Sempre Lontano, which was certified gold, and following a guest performance at the 2011 Sanremo Festival for a duet with La Crus, the new edition of the album went Platinum.

After a sold-out tour, Nina participated in the 2012 Sanremo Festival with the song Per Sempre and released her new studio album L’Amore È Femmina. Now the title track, mixed with English lyrics– Out Of Love, will be the Italian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku.

Lyrics of L'Amore È Femmina (Out Of Love)

L’AMORE E’ FEMMINA (OUT OF LOVE):

Unbelievable
I can't wait to go
But like a rolling stone
You hit me BoomBoomBoom

If you were my king
Would i be your queen?
Stop breaking up my heart
You kill me BoomBoomBoom

(Day & night it's a fight)
Don't know where you are
When I'm close you're far
Oh, no no

(Day & night, it's a lie)
I waste my tears and you shoot pool

L’amore è femmina
Se non riceve non si da
This is the mess u left
I'm out of love and it's a fact (u left, out of love and it's a fact)
I'm sure you'll smile
You have to go
You're an independent grown man after all
Out of love
Must have been sent from up above
La la la

Have you turned to stone?
King without a throne
You're great but not impressive
Lots of up and low

It's so tipical
When it's time to go
You knock me on the floor
My heart goes BoomBoomBoom

(Day & night it's a fight)
Don't know where to start
When you're close i'm far
Oh, no no
(Day & night it's a lie)
I dried my tears but you want more

L’amore è femmina
Se non riceve non si da
Clean up the mess you left
I'm out of love and it's a fact
I'm sure you'll smile
Ready to go
You're an independent grown man after all
Out of love
Must have been sent from up above
La la la

Ma che caldo fa uh uh
I'll let you think twice
I don't wanna cause any pressure
But have you asked yourself why
I bought a brand new gun shot

L'amore è femmina
Se non riceve non si da (tic tac non riceve non si da)
La prendo comoda
Calcolo le possibilità (tic tac una possibilità)
Quello che vuoi
Se non ce l'hai
Siamo tutti insoddisfatti come mai
Femmina se non riceve non si da
La la la
LOVE IS FEMALE (OUT OF LOVE)

unbelievable
i can't wait to go
but like a rolling stone
you hit me BoomBoomBoom

if you were my king
would i be your queen?
stop breaking up my heart
you kill me BoomBoomBoom

(day&night it's a fight)
don't know where you are
when i'm close you're far

(day&night, it's a lie)
i waste my tears and you shoot pool

LOVE IS FEMALE
UNLESS PLEASED IT WILL NOT PLEASE
this is the mess u left
i'm out of love and it's a fact (u left, out of love and it's a fact)

WHAT YOU WANT
UNLESS YOU DO NOT HAVE IT
WE ARE ALL MORE UNSATISFIED THAN EVER
FEMALE, UNLESS PLEASED IT WILL NOT PLEASE
