Srbuk is an Armenian pop & soul singer.
Influenced by Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Michael Jackson, she debuted in 2011 competing in season one of the Armenian version of The X Factor where she placed as the runner-up.
After the show, Srbuk decided to form a band, which gathered a following and began to sell out shows around Yerevan and Armenia, becoming one of the most influential and popular artists in Armenia currently.
This success allowed her to featured on Papoyan’s single “Boat”. The track is taken from the soundtrack of Russian movie “Лёгок на поми́не”.
In 2016, Srbuk released her first official solo single titled “Yete karogh es”. It became a national hit and two years later, the young star participated in season eight of The Voice of Ukraine, placing fourth.
“Walking out” is her Eurovision entry. Written By Lost Capital, ​tokionine & Garik Papoyan, the song fuses emotional lyrics with experimental beats.
The black and white music video was shot by Arthur Manukyan.
About the clip, Srbuk said: “We wanted to visually portray the emotions within a loving but betrayed heart. When you think you will be filled with joy, but instead there is not enough air to breathe. When you want to share your happiness, but instead you start losing yourself: your hands are tied, your emotions are overwhelming, you keep pretending just to keep your love alive. But what are you waiting for? How long can you play by these rules? These are the questions and emotions visualized in the music video”.

Lyrics:

Who are you?
What you really do?
When you have to fight the agony that’s aiming back at you?
Who are you?
Who you run to?
Depend, defend, hope on
Can you function on your own?

Are you from those who will swallow down
The pain, disgrace, the sadness? Yeah
When the one you love so much
Can take your soul and break it, no

Wait for, oh, wait for
What I waited for?
Wait for, oh, wait for
Oh, no, I’m done

Walking out, ooh-ooh
Whatever I’ve built I’m gonna burn down
I’m walking out, ooh-ooh
You’re no more a king ’cause I was your crown

First you said you would die for me
But in the end I was the one bleeding all alone
First you said, you kneeled, you swore
You loved, you lived for me
How could you forget it all?

Are you from those who can take a loving heart
And squeeze it out of love?
Then prepare to slowly get
Not loved but hated instead

Walking out, ooh-ooh
Whatever I’ve built I’m gonna burn down
I’m walking out, ooh-ooh
You’re no more a king ’cause I was your crown
Walking out, walking out (Walking out, walking out)
No crying now
Walking out, walking out (Walking out, walking out)
No begging
Walking out, ooh-ooh
At last, I feel proud
I’m walking out

You knew that my heart wasn’t small
But somehow you came and filled it all

(Walking out, ooh-ooh)
(Whatever I’ve built I’m gonna burn down) Yeah
(I’m walking out, ooh-ooh) Yeah
(You’re no more a king ’cause I was your crown)
(Walking out, walking out) Walking out, walking out
Crying now
(Walking out, walking out) Walking out, walking out
Begging, yeah
(Walking out, ooh-ooh)
(At last, I feel proud)
I’m walking out
