Listen to "Europapa" by Joost – Dutch entry for Eurovision 2024

In December it has been revealed by AVROTROS that Joost Klein will be the one to represent The Netherlands at Eurovision Song Contest 2024. Minutes ago the official music video of the Dutch entry has been released.

Joost Klein mononymously known as Joost is a rapper and former YouTuber from Leeuwarden, he expressed his interest to take part at Eurovision as the Dutch representative last summer when a total of 25k of his fans and people signed a petition created by the Dutch radio programme VoorAan on NPO 3FM in order for him to represent the county.  Joost will perform “Europapa” at the Eurovision stage. The song is produced by Teun de Kruif (Tantu Beats), with a contribution from DJ Paul Elstak. The author of lyrics is Joost himself with a bit of influence from his friends Donnie and Tim Haars. Europapa is a tribute to Joost’s father. While performing it, the singer informs the audience which listens to it that there are no limits for making all of your dreams come true and tell your story. The melody mixes melancholy and happiness

Europapa is about an orphan who travels throughout Europe (and beyond) to find himself and tell his story. At first, people don’t recognise him, but he goes on seizing any opportunity he gets to let himself be seen. ‘Europapa’ is a tribute to my father. When bringing me up, he passed on to me an expansive view of the world The Eurovision performance will be a full-circle experience, turning sorrow into elation. When people see my act, their first response should be: “What’s going on here?”, but then only to find themselves moved. An invitation to dive deeper. At first glance it seems a very happy act, but beyond that lie blood, sweat and tears.
