The announcement of the song's title will mark the launch of a digital campaign called #beMyfriend that has been developed by the Croatian Eurovision representative and his team. On social media he posted a photo with the goal to motivate people to open up, create and renew friendships. "Remember your friends, make them happy by dedicating a photo to them, show them how important they are to you, make new friends. Let this song and the #beMyfriend campaign be a celebration of friendship, the joy of living and a priceless wealth of love, trust and mutual respect", he added.
