Career[edit]
Arilena Ara was born in Shkodr. She first participated in Gjeniu i Vogl ("Little Genius"), a talent-
singing contest for children and placed third in the competition.
After her father's death, she took part in season 2 of Albanian X Factor broadcast from 28
October 2012 to 31 March 2013 on TV Klan. She auditioned in Tirana performing an acoustic
version of Ana Johnsson's "We Are". She was mentored by judge Altuna Sejdiu in the "Girls"
category. In the final, she sang Mary J Blige's "No More Drama" and Rihanna's "Man Down" and
"S&M" as a duet with her coach Tuna winning the season. Recently she participated in a TV
Show called "Dance With Me" 2. Her partner was Labi (an Albanian journalist from Kosovo best
known for "Nj kafe me Labin" or "A cup of coffee with Labi").[1] On 26 February 2014 she
released her first video single "Aeroplan",[2] becoming a chart topping hit in Albania. After her
success with "Aeroplan" which had 2 milion views within 12 hours, her new hit "Business Class"
had 1 milion views in its first 9 hours. She later released her third song titled "Vegim" dedicated to
the passing of her father.[3] In 2016 she released another song, Nntori, which gained some
popularity outside Albania as well (e.g. being included on radio rotation in Romania).
