Ali’s Paris me dit (Yalla) has been one the standouts of the 2021 Eurovision France hopefuls. The singer now releases the track’s studio version and official video before heading to Eurovision France, c’est vous qui décidez’s live show on January 30th.
Ali told us: “For those that don’t speak French the track means ‘Paris tells me’ and Yalla ya helo in Lebanese means ‘come over handsome.’ This is what I felt when I came to Paris – it’s me telling my story – where I came from and what Paris allowed me to do and to be. I was this young boy living in a warzone under bombs and living in rejection, going on and not giving up and having hope. This is the message I really want to give with the song: hope. There is always a way for us to make it and we should not give up.”
A real sense of hopefulness and freedom fully translates in the track’s official video which sees the Lebanese-born talent navigate the streets of Paris in a lavish flowing garment.
