Composer Matetsky about the rivalry between Pugacheva and Rotaru: “It was beneficial and necessary for people around”

The two Russian pop stars have always been credited with tacit rivalry. Sofia Rotaru and Alla Pugacheva almost simultaneously began to conquer the scene in the 70s. Each of them had their own hits that the public loved. The artists rarely participated even in the same group concerts, but in the early 2000s they unexpectedly sang the song of the Tatu group – “They Won’t Catch Us” as a duet. The fans were delighted, they say, did they really reconcile or was there no enmity?

Composer Vladimir Matetsky, who wrote many hits, including for Sofia Mikhailovna, spoke about the rivalry between the two divas of the national stage. Among them are “Lavender”, “Only this is not enough”, “Farmer”.

“If there was a rivalry between these completely different artists, it was more speculative. But very profitable and necessary people around, primarily journalists. Music journalism all over the world lives on such oppositions. Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger still play this game. There was and is an element of rivalry even among these two completely different musicians, who have two different destinies, different careers. Almost like Pugacheva and Rotaru, ”Matetsky explained.

The composer’s most successful songs are associated with Sofia Mikhailovna. They have been on friendly terms for many years.
