About Romania and Her People: Alexander Rybak
Everything Paula Seling does musically is very natural. […] I just love her voice and when I wanted to write a song about jelousy – about a powerfull feeling – I pictured only one woman to do that [sing the song with him], and that was Paula. […] She is a successful artist, but instead of being ‘a star’, she is more like a [normal] person all the way through. […] I feel like I have a little family in Romania!
