MOSCOW, RUSSIA – On the 5th of March the Russian national broadcaster released the video clip of the song “You are the only one” that will represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest.
At that time no one could understand why the video clip was released on the YouTube channel of Sergey Lazarev and not on the official youtube channel of the contest,with a million subscribes and guaranteed views.
A week later we all have the answer: This was just a way for all of us to understand the power of the artist and the song,since in 7 days the video has reached 3 million views!! More views than any other Eurovision entry has ever had on the first days of its release!
