Eleni Foureira collaborates with Israel’s Doron Medalie for new song “Caramela”

Doron Medalie, the man who wrote this year’s winning song “Toy”, has announced he’ll be collaborating with this year’s Eurovision runner-up Eleni Foureira for a new single called “Caramela”.

Despite being rivals in this years’ contest, Eleni have a history of being linked together. In 2015, Eleni recorded her version of Medalie’s “Golden Boy”, Israel’s entry for Eurovision that year. Her cover has gained almost 20 million views on YouTube, and reached number 9 in the Greek charts

Speaking about his latest collaboration with Eleni, Medalie says:

“Eleni Foureira and I are good friends and really enjoy working together. She really wanted to come to the Gay Pride parade in Tel Aviv but did not make it because of a tight schedule. Eleni is aware of the Israeli audience love, and has seen many people dancing to “Fuego”. Now that we (Israel) have won the Eurovision and the Cyprus threat is gone, I believe that an exciting reunion will soon be formed between Eleni and the Israeli audience.”

“Caramela”, written by Doron, Moshe Peretz and Avi Ohayon, was released in Israel last year by Moshe, gaining over 25 million views, which you can see below
