The most popular band in Russia's history, tATu, has left indelible traces in the local people's mind that they have dreamed of their return ever since. But internet is full of lies!
YouTube is full of tATu songs that are not really tATu songs, but since it's difficult to recognize Julija Volkova or Jelena Katyina's voice singing together, a lot of fans can not understand Russian and Cyrillic characters, so can be credible. It's been a couple of days ago that a song called Follow Me was added to the tATu Official channel, which is mainly due to the fact that it was not the band. Secondly, there is a problem with it, despite all the official tones, it is not really the official channel of tATu, but a fan who wants their favorite band to join the 2018 Russian football fever.
As sound- minded people bring a lot of clicks, the only Russian page on Onlytrends.info has been translated into two languages, so the girlband has released a new song. The inserted video is no longer the same as the enthusiast, but it is exactly the same lie.
Of course, from the Russian girl's career, the simple lies were far too far apart, as all of their career was built by the huge chamber that they were lesbians and lovers in each other. Lena Katyina did not stop singing, in 2011, for example, his Russian song MTV gave her the title of the video of the year, while she gave birth to a baby, and she also started acting.
Listen the supposed new song here:

Refering to the official EBU statement RUSS IS OUT of eurovision 2017!
There have been ideas of the EBU how to make it possible that Russia still would be able to participate at the contest this year in Kiev.
One solution was a participation via satelite and the other was to nominate an other artist.
Both options were no option for the russian broadcaster. That means, RUSSIA is out 2017!
The broadcaster further informed that they are not going to broadcast the eurovision this year. By the rules of EBU it would mean that it would be dificult to participate at eurovision next year.
But we will see, if the book of Russia at Eurovision 2017 is written or if it just was one more chapter.

Autumn is a great time for releases since the Euphoria of all the Summer Hits that surrounded our ears are just memories.
Since taking part in Eurovision is more or less a synonimous of success, at least in Russia and in Ukraine, we can find new songs from several artists from the former Soviet countries.
And if you are asking why we put russian and ukrainian artists in the same post, just check the charts of both countries and you will be surprised!
Elena Teknikova (former Serebro)
Lena Katina (former TATU)
