Destiny Chukunyere won this year’s edition of the Maltese X Factor, and thus also won the right to represent her country at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, which was going to be held in the Netherlands. Her Eurovision song was then internally chosen, and it was the song “All Of My Love”, written by Borislav Milanov, Bernarda Brunović, Sebastian Arman, Dag Lundberg and Joacim Persson.
After the song was released, one of the composers Bernarda Brunović revealed that she had submitted this song for Dora – Croatia’s national selection, where the song failed to make it to the top 16. Now in an Instagram live chat, Poli Genova confirmed that this song was created for Eurovision back in 2016, that it was her second choice for her participation in Stockholm, and that she co-wrote the lyrics of the chorus.
In a live chat on Instagram together with the Finnish Eurovision entrant from 2013 and the host of Finnish Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu in the last couple of years, Krista Siegfrids, Poli also spoke about “All Of My Love”. She said:
The chorus was supposed to be my second option for Eurovision 2016, with different verses. I’m actually part of the writing of the lyrics, but I think the authors forgot about it, so cheers for that.

In the end, Poli went for “If Love Was A Crime” for Eurovision 2016 and rejected “All Of My Love”. Her song became a huge fan favorite, and finished in 4th place in the Contest in Stockholm.
