Ovi and Paula are back in the public spotlight with a new project called 'OPS' as well as with a sound that is different from what their fans were used to. After a succesful 5 year collaboration, the two launch 'S.A.M.P. (She's After My Piano)'.

The project 'OPS' is a natural progression of a 5 year collaboration between Paula and Ovi. It appeared out of the desire to move forward under one name, so that the solo projects, Paula Seling and Ovi would be more distinctive. "The next songs that are to be launched in the duet formula will be under a new brand", Ovi stated.

"Projects with Ovi challenge me to explore new characters every time. 'S.A.M.P.' is no exception. Just like "Playing with Fire", there is a funny dialogue between us, a sort of play. Because this project is different from what we do on our own, we thought it would be better if it had an alternative name. "So, this is how 'OPS' came out”, said Paula Seling.

Music, lyrics and production belong to Ovi Jacobsen, Simen Eriksrud, Brynjard Buvarp Misvaer, Halloun Philip Paridon/ Harboe. Ovi and Paula have successfully represented Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest twice; in 2010 with "Playing with Fire" finishing in 3rd place and in 2014 with "Miracle" finishing in 12th place. We urge you to stay tuned to even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from Eurostars across the world.
