It was their entry for the Macedonian Eurovision Selection or Skopje Fest 2009. It was presented in the second semifinal night and it qualify for the final where it finished on the 10th place.
The song was specially made for the coming than Skopje Fest 2009. It is sung just by one of the lead singers in the band - Riste as result of the throw operation that the other singer Aleksandar had made. The music of the song is made by the famous Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski and the lyrics were written by his older brother Jovan Trpčeski. The arrangement on the song gave Darko Dimitrov and the song was recorded in his music studio M2 too. The fully made song was sung completely in Macedonian.
The song was first presented in the second semifinal of Skopje Fest performed as 11th. After a lot of thinking how to present this song written by Simon Trpčeski they decided to make a classical performance of it - the band is on the stage and Riste is in front singing on a static microphone. In the semifinal they finished 4th with 15 points (7 from the audience and 8 from the jury) and with that they qualified for the final. In the final night of the contest that was carried on the 21st of February they performed as 4th and finished on the 10th place out of 16 with just 3 points from the audience.
As the name "Devojko" (Girl) is saying, in the song is singing about a girl. The singer starts the song saying that from far away is listening music with a good rhythm. The girl is coming and it shakes her body. She sent views to him and calls him to go to her and with all that he goes crazy. The chorus comes where he says that his heart and mind are fighting and says to the girl to don't play with a fire. He is feeling that easily she is killing him as the rhythm goes. In the second part of the song he says again that without embarrass she is sending views to him. He again says that is going crazy. The song is continuing with the chorus. The lyrics are made by Jovan Trpčeski.
