ROXEN

Team Romania describe ROXEN as ‘a labyrinth of an artist, with a dreamy sound and mesmerising voice that creates an entirely new universe with every release’ - and it’s hard to disagree given the breadth of material the Cluj-Napoca chanteuse has released in recent times.

In the time since May 2020, the Romanian singer scored her second Airplay 100 chart-topper with Spune-mi, and collaborated with Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak on the track Wonderland.

ROXEN also spent a lot of her days working on 2021 entry, Amnesia, as she revealed to Eurovision.tv:

"The last year was a bit of a rollercoaster, filled with really good moments and some low points also. In the end, what kept me going the most was that I had some really great projects. Amnesia somehow manages to give a voice to all repressed feelings and to the people whose voices haven't been heard, in a way that for me is incredibly pure.”

In advance of the cancelled Contest, ROXEN was the 3rd most-played artist on Romanian radio. Her most popular hits at the time were: You Don’t Love Me (with 8 million views on YouTube) and her first number one single Ce-ți Cântă Dragostea (a further 9 million views and the most ‘Shazamed’ Romanian song of 2020).

Lyrics of Amnesia

Once upon a time
I used to know a girl
Ripped jeans messy hair
Shining like a pearl
Like a summer day
She could push the night so far away

If you feel what I feel
See what I see
Don't bring yourself down
You are not alone, not alone now


Oh, I lost myself tryna to have it all
This world feels in rush and they say they know it all
Oh I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if it got ya
Cuz you're not alone , not alone
I tried to fight it but it's getting strong , getting strong
Oh I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don't worry if you got it cuz you're not alone


Giving all they want might make you lose control
They keep preaching words like I should know
People always say be careful what you're wishing for


If you feel what I feel,
See what I see
Don't bring yourself down
You are not alone, not alone now


Oh, I lost myself tryna to have it all
This world feels in rush and they say they know it all
Oh I lost myself, tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don t worry if it got ya
Cuz you're not alone , not alone
I tried to fight it but it's getting strong, getting strong
Oh I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don t worry if you got it cuz you re not alone


Self love, self love, it's never gone
Self love, self love, put it back on
Self love, self love, you're not alone
Not alone, not alone
self love amnesia


I lost myself tryna to have it all
This world feels in rush and they say they know it all
Oh I lost myself , tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don t worry if it got ya
Cuz you're not alone, not alone
I tried to fight it but it's getting strong, getting strong
Oh I lost myself tryna have it all
Self love amnesia, don t worry if you got it cuz you're not alone
