The internet has been abuzz all week with speculation about the song that will be performed by our most recognisable, multi-platinum, all round entertainer, Jessica Mauboy, when she takes the stage at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal in May.

But the wait is over… we got Jessica's 2018 Eurovision song right here, right now, and that means only one thing: 'We Got Love.'

An uplifting power anthem written by Australian hit makers DNA SONGS (David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii) in collaboration with Jessica, '#We Got Love' is a song we can all get behind, and offers Jessica a chance to showcase her powerhouse vocals on the world stage.

Watch the music video for We Got Love:

The song, released globally today, will be performed at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, which will be broadcast exclusively on SBS from 9 to 13 May.

“I love the Eurovision Song Contest. I have since I was a little girl watching it with the family in Darwin,” Jessica says. “I wanted to write a song that captured that instinctive sense of joy of how a great song can change the darkest of moods into happiness. We Got Love is also about how music can lift the human spirit. You can always rise above in the hardest times with something as simple as a great song.

“Eurovision, to me, is people brought together through a real love of music and all the joy that music can bring. I can’t wait to perform this song live in Portugal and see it connect with a global audience at such a special time.” 

DNA are no strangers to Eurovision, having also worked on Dami Im’s 2016 Eurovision hit ‘Sound Of Silence’, which saw the singer land second place and Isaiah’s ‘Don’t Come Easy’ placing him in the top 10 at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017.

David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii explain the story behind their song, as “a reminder that love, acceptance and the power of inclusivity can overcome all obstacles or hardships that arise”.

“Especially in times like these where the world can be a very confusing and lonely place, it’s important to remember when we feel disarmed of empowerment that we still hold the greatest chance for change with love.”

'We Got Love' is released globally and is now available to stream and download, it will also be available as a physical CD single on May 11 through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
