In 2011, Rossinelli was chosen to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf, Germany, with the song “In Love for a While.” This song was her debut single, and the positive, upbeat track caught the attention of Eurovision viewers. Rossinelli and her band managed to qualify for the final round of the competition, marking Switzerland’s first entry into the Eurovision finals since 2006.

The album was successful in Switzerland and led to several successful follow-up albums, including “Marylou” in 2013, which reached number one on the Swiss Albums Chart, and “Marylou Two” in 2014.

One of the songs she sang was Peter Reber’s “Djambo Djambo“.

On February 1st 2023 Rossinelli signed a contract with Sony Music Switzerland. In the same month, their first single at their new label, “Mother” was released, followed by the album with the same name, released in September. “The World Is Yours” was the 2nd single, “I Used To Be Young” the third, followed by “Backstabber”.
