Valentina Monetta, chosen to represent San Marino for the third year running with Maybe, composed by Ralph Siegel to the lyrics of Mauro Balestri has just released a preview video accompanying the Italian version of the song, Forse. It is worth pointing out that both versions have been made available to listen to through Spotify as they are both being offered on the promotional package.

In a press release, it was also announced that both versions will be included in her forthcoming album Sensibilità, set for release in April 2014. Valentina Monetta will be hoping to become the first artist from San Marino to take the microstate into the final, having finished in eleventh (11th) place last year with Crisalide (Vola). They will be in an extremely difficult first semi-final, an evening which has been termed as a bloodbath by many, and will surely be unpredictable. Stay tuned to for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
