Malta has only placed second twice since first competing in the Eurovision back in 1971. The first time was Ira Losco with her song 7th Wonder in 2002 and the second time with Chiara and her song Angel. Mary Spiteri and Chiara placed third in 1992 and 1998 respectively.

Destiny’s song is about women’s empowerment in society, with the music video featuring home videos of the singer’s time as a young girl.

The 2021 Maltese entry is composed and penned by Malin Christin, Amanuel Dermont, Nicklas Eklund and Pete Barringer.

The singer was due to represent the country at last year’s Eurovision festival, which had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The location and participants of last year’s festival have been retained for this year’s edition. This year’s contest will begin on Tuesday 18 May, and the final will be held on Saturday 22 May.
