Brooke – That’s Rich

Ireland has won the Eurovision Song Contest seven times. Johnny Logan famously triumphed twice (in 1980 and 1987) and there was a real hattrick in 1992, ’93 and ’94. The latest victory however was in 1996. This year, in a new effort to secure the top slot, the country sends 23-year-old Brooke Scullion to Italy.

The singer and songwriter from Derry was a finalist of ‘The Voice UK’ 2020. She won her spot to represent Ireland at Eurovision 2022 in Turin after a show-stopping performance of That’s Rich on RTE’s ‘Late Late Show Eurosong Special’. She beat five other competitors. Following some comments after the broadcast, she tweaked the track a little more, so the version now available on streaming services is ‘final’. Talking of which, I’m sure this tune will at least secure Ireland a placement in the ESC final. I’m even confident it’ll do very well in that second round as well.

Mainly inspired by Blondie and Gossip, That’s Rich is a fiery and empowering single. It’s a modern pop song that narrates how you should never settle for anyone who doesn’t fulfil your needs. Bizarrely, this is the first track Brooke ever wrote. That being said, it’s only the second single she’s ever released.
