Michela has just released an online teaser on her social media platforms and confirmed that the artist will be releasing her new single entitled 'Say It First' this coming Friday 14th February which coincides with Valentine's Day.

It has been a very busy year for Michela. Right after being crowned X Factor Malta's Season 01's winner in January 2019, Michela embarked on her Eurovision adventure in Tel Aviv, where she represented Malta with the song 'Chameleon'. This original release & BOP has record You Tube views & likes that got a lot of airplay. During this Eurovision adventure, Michela secured Malta's place in the Final & was coincidently also chosen as a show opener. Whilst Michela was trending in 12 countries, it also meant she couldn't work on new music till Eurovision was over.


The Eurovision experience was followed by an intense summer period, with performances in all major local music events.  To top this, Michela was also invited by top local artist & X factor judge Ira Losco, to perform on her new single 'Cannonball' and to maximize this experience, a music video was shot abroad and released soon after.

During this busy period, Michela traveled six times in order to work on her new music together with Universal Music & Jagged House Management. Michela describes this experience as a creative outburst where she got the chance to explore her song-writing capabilities. She also stated that she managed to team up with various co-writers and worked twenty original songs.

Michela was featured on X Factor Global several times even after her X Factor journey had ended. Her mentor and Jagged House Management representative, Howard Keith states that he's always grateful when an international brand with very high standards like X Factor chooses and features a local artist on their Global platforms. He also states that this is the cherry on the cake to get the added visibility, which is needed, in this industry. Howard Keith also thanks Michela and her work ethic who has adapted very fast to how the industry operates. Reaching a total of 50 million streams to date with Michela in such a cutthroat industry is an amazing milestone.
