Its title, “P.O.P.”, carries a dual meaning. Not only does it signify the type of music Marina embodies, but it’s also an abbreviation for “Προστατευόμενη Ονομασία Προέλευσης” (Protected Designation of Origin), a nod to renowned Greek products like Feta cheese and Kalamata olives. With two previously released hits, “TUCUTUM” and “ZARI”, alongside five fresh tracks, Marina invites listeners on a musical journey that celebrates her cultural roots while embracing modern sounds.

The EP’s standout track, “MIXTAPE”, stretches over ten minutes, serving as a cultural manifesto of Greek musical heritage and pop culture. Featuring collaborations with luminaries like Greek-French rapper VLOSPA and legendary Greek musician Lefteris Pantazis, “MIXTAPE” delves into Marina’s personal and artistic evolution. Lyrically, it confronts controversies surrounding her Eurovision entry “ZARI” and addresses detractors who have questioned her artistic choices both in the past and present.

Behind the scenes, Marina collaborates with a talented array of producers and songwriters, including Nick Kordonas, OGE, KAY BE, mediopicky, Solmeister, and Anastasios Tsordas, among others. This collaborative spirit infuses “P.O.P.” with a diverse range of sounds and perspectives, reflecting Marina’s commitment to innovation and inclusivity.

Meanwhile, “ZARI”, which was released by Golden Records and Minos EMI, a Universal Music Company, continues its meteoric rise, achieving triple platinum status in Greece and securing a spot on the Spotify Viral Global Chart. Marina’s Eurovision performance catapulted her into international stardom, marking the first time a song with Greek lyrics has made such a significant impact on the global stage. With “ZARI” dominating digital charts across Europe, Marina emerges as a trailblazer for Greek music on the world stage.

Currently boasting over 1.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Marina stands as Greece’s premier musical export. Her infectious charm and distinctive style have captivated audiences worldwide, cementing her status as a multifaceted artist unafraid to challenge conventions. Through her music, she celebrates her heritage, navigating its complexities with grace and authenticity, while paving the way for future generations of Greek artists.

In “P.O.P.”, Marina Satti delivers a potent blend of tradition and innovation, solidifying her position as a global music icon. As she continues to break barriers and defy expectations, Marina’s journey promises to be as exhilarating as her vibrant melodies.
