In 2016, Ramūnas Zilnys, a permanent jury member of Eurovizijos atranka, mentioned her album in one of his articles as a 'complete new entertainment world'. He also describes her music as 'Gentle sadness, dreamy poetic songs about solitude, silence and light, with a jolly voice'.
Today, she released her entry for Eurovizijos atranka, which is called 'Butterfly'. This spicy entry is performed by Ofelija in collaboration with Phil Phauler, a DJ and producer from Slovakia. The song is an edgy mixture of pop and deep house. Talking about Ofelija, she highlighted the meaning of her entry: 'The song is about freedom. That we must be more free in our lives. And about the decisions. And we must be butterflies, flying.'
