Albania: Besa's revamped song for Eurovision 2024 released: "Titan"

Besa Kokëdhima has released the song "Titan," the song she'll be taking to the Eurovision 2024 stage. It's a revamp of her Festivali i Këngës 62 song, "Zemrën n'dorë"

Back in December, Besa Kokëdhima was given the honor of heading to Eurovision 2024 after taking part in Festivali i Këngës 62. After all four nights of shows took place, on the final night the Albanian public voted for Besa and her song "Zemrën n'dorë" to go to Eurovision.

Besa confirmed at a later date she would be revamping "Zemrën n'dorë." After months of Besa teasing the revamp on her social media accounts, it's finally been released and is titled "Titan."

Listen to "Titan" – the song Besa will be taking to the Eurovision 2024 stage.
