Greece’s Helena Paparizou, the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest winner, released her first international solo album recently.

“The game of love” will not only be published all over Europe but also in Australia, Japan, Canada and possibly world-wide. The CD contains 14 tracks, six of them are English versions of songs the singer has already published on her Greek album “Iparchi logos”.

Helena’s international album is confirmed as “The game of love” and not as previously reported elsewhere “Mambo”. The front cover image show’s Helena sitting in a beige room, leaning towards a wall. Some of the songs have already become hits. “Heroes” was the official song for the 2006 European Athletics Championships, held in Gothenburg, Sweden in August. “Mambo” is the song Helena Paparizou performed  as interval act during this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Athens. Song number 14, the bonus track, is sung in Greek. The original version of the song, recorded by Manos Hadjidakis, was a big hit in France back in 1962.

Helena Paparizou won the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with “My number one” for Greece. The single topped the charts both in Greece and Sweden and was overall a big hit. A remix version is currently achieving success in the United States dance charts, where it has reached the Top 10.
