Her YouTube videos have collected more than 340 million views and she is the most-listened to musician in the Balkans.
And on Monday Croatian pop princess Severina reminded the world why when she released the music video for her latest single “Sekunde” (Seconds).
The infectious club number stays true to Severina’s pop-folk sound and pumps it up with Rihanna-esque production, proving once again that she can bridge local and global like no other.

The Split-born stunner, who was the most Googled person in both Croatia and Slovenia last year, looks high-glam as she works a series of on-trend looks.
In one scene she’s wearing a sexy pair of black panties teamed with a low-cut white tank top, and in another she’s giving life to a Little Black Dress paired with a black leather jacket.
In all instances the clothes cling to every contour, hugging her in all the right places and showing off her stunning décolletage.
The lyrics move beyond disposable pop and tell the story of a woman counting the seconds since her boyfriend left her, and resolving to go out and have some fun.
But that isn’t easy and, as she searches for solace at the bar, she downs “a cocktail with tears”.
“I’ll call the doctor to give me a shot that makes me immune to you,” she says. “And yet all around me kissing, no one is breathing and I’m still counting the seconds…”
