This weekend, Serbia chooses its entrant for Eurovision 2020.
And ahead of the Beovizija semi-finals, girl group Hurricane – who are among the frontrunners – have revamped their entry “Hasta la vista”. The girls have also released a fiery music video.
Hurricane – “Hasta la vista” music video
Directed by Đorđe Obradović, Hurricane’s music video brings the fire and energy the group served in their promo images.
The video shows the three ladies in a variety of different settings, styles, and outfits ranging from vibrant hues of neon pink and yellow, to dark and more sultry leather looks.
Aside from the stunning visuals, the Serbian trio have also strengthened the melody of their number. The subtle revamp gives the song an almost anthemic feel and the heightened bass provides a more solid structure to tie the whole project together.
Who are Hurricane?
Aside from Eurovision 2016 alum, Sanja Vučić, Hurricane is a trio which also includes Ksenija Knežević and Ivana Nikolić. If Ksenija’s name looks familiar — there’s a reason. She’s the daughter of another Eurovision alumni, Montenegro’s 2015 singer Knez.
The story of the group’s formation is explained by their founder, Zoran Milinković. After Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the Carribean in 2017, Milinković participated in the cleanup efforts on the island of Sint Maarten.
After returning to Serbia, he then formed the group to send a message of support. Hurricane’s first single, fittingly, was named “Irma, Maria”. The music video showed cleanup efforts, whilst the song preached about the strength and will to rebuild after tragedy.
The ladies have released three non-Beovizija related singles since September 2019: “Favorito”, “Avantura”, and “Brzi prsti”. “Favorito” has already amassed over 45 million views.
