We can now say that Montenegro is officially back to Eurovision!

After holding an open call for songs, the Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG internally selected Vladana Vučinić as their Eurovision 2022 representative and has since then been teasing "Breathe", the song that she will perform in Turin.

Two months after the announcement, "Breathe" is here alongside its music video.
