Rachel will sing Li Stajt Nagħżel Jien (I have to choose). The song is composed by Rita Pace and Mark Spiteri Lucas. The track is described as a traditional ballad.

Rachel is versatile in that she can sing ballad and upbeat song comfortably. Her song at the  L-Għanja tal-Poplu entitled Minn Kajfas Għal Għand Pilatu was an upbeat song that she composed entirely herself.
