"Loreen will compete in the fourth round. The song "Statements" she has written together with Anton Hard af Segerstad, Joy Deb and Linnea Deb - the trio behind Måns Zelmerlöw winning song 2015.
- I will not hide the fact that I'm nervous. I'm always nervous. But I have a little voice inside of me that says, "Do this! Inspire! Do your job!". But yes, I'm funky, that set me on the stage, says Loreen to SVT.
- I have no advantage at all, as I see it. People certainly have expectations, but it has happened a lot and it will be very different. I've got a little tougher skin as a woman." | SVT.se
"The song is called "Statements", what do you want to say with it? - What should I say, I say like this. There is much happening in the world right now, I want to try to inspire and unite, and everyone including myself to focus on the right things. The music is a good way to do it. It's very important for me to be able to get it out." | Aftonbladet.se
