Production history of "Milioner"

Milioner is a pop song with R&B and hip hop elements. The author of the music is Elena's producer Darko Dimitrov and the lyrics are written by herself. The hip hop text was sang by Leroy Chambers. It was realized with a video clip on 13 May 2007.

Explanation of the lyrics

The title of the song Millionaire is the main theme in the whole song[1]. The author of the lyrics is Elena by herself. She is starting the song and saying that she feels that he is watching her and knows what is he thinking. She exactly knows in which places she is looking her. She says that she is not a materialistic girl and millionaires could not by her, she just wants one thousand kisses. She says to him that he is on the top of the world and he has everything that he wants, but he needs just a good girl, that is what he is missing. For her diamonds, pearls and money are nothing, she just wants one thousand kisses. The chorus is coming where the phrase You are millionaire! (in Macedonian: Ти си милионер!) is repeating on every second word. In the Chorus Elena is saying that she doesn't want any money and love is that that actually she misses. She says that he could not buy her, because with money love is not buying. The song is continuing and Elena asks him why he is still on the top and says to him to come down to her world, he is just missing love. She sings about her eyes comparing with black diamonds, and says that with brilliants her lips are full. She just wants one thousand kisses. The chorus is continuing. Leroy Chambers sings in English the following sentences: "Every time you call me, you only try to change me, and every time you come around we get busy, it's not my regios, but so you like me, no no no is not about my money, and girl you're funny, and if you want me, because you know i am living like a millionaire, because i got what i want, and i take what i need, and I gotta take off with my money" and "Shake it like a million dollar player".
