Aisel had internally been chosen to represent Azerbaijan at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. Her song X My Heart was leaked yesterday, and was meant to be released today.

I expected way more from Azerbaijan. It’s decent but a bit boring. I would have to see a live performance of this song to really form my opinion. The vocals in the studio version are good, but I hope that she will sing loud enough to top the music. Since Azerbaijan qualifies to the final every year, I think this year will be no different. For now, I don’t really like the song yet because it’s so ordinary. I expected an original song, and not a regular pop song. 4/10
