hurricane loco loco

The wind is blowing, and Serbia is calling! Hurricane have revealed a little snippet of their Eurovision 2021 entry “Loco Loco”, which will drop on Friday March 5.

The Serbian group — that’s Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević — are sticking to the “Hasta La Vista” formula. The snippet is less than 20 seconds long, but it’s already a rush.

Serbian broadcaster RTS shared the sneak peak of the video on their Twitter account. Balloons, bold colours, disco balls and an attractive man in a bathtub come together to serve fierce gale force winds!

Sanja, Ivana and Ksenija sport matching curly haridos while they show a little bit of the choreography. They also twist around the microphone and sing from a bathtub filled with discoballs – who wouldn’t like to do that?

Beyond the Spanish title, the language choice for “Loco Loco” has not been confirmed. Its title means crazy x2 in Spanish, but the snippet reveals a line in Serbian.

Hurricane’s path to Eurovision 2021

We’ve known the name of Hurricane’s song since last week. On Monday, a video on the group’s Instagram Stories showed them working in the studio. A brief frame showed the singers reading from a lyric sheet with the title “Loco Loco” written clearly across the top.

The new song is produced by Nemanja Antonić and Darko Dimitrov, with lyrics from Hurricane member and Eurovision veteran Sanja Vučić. Antonić is one of the writers behind Hurricane’s Eurovision 2020 entry “Hasta la Vista” — which they were set to sing in Rotterdam before the contest’s cancellation. Now the trio will return to take the world by storm with another Spanish-titled track.

Girl group Hurricane were originally selected to represent Serbia at Eurovision 2020 when they won national final Beovizija 2020 with the song “Hasta la vista”. But sadly, with the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, their dream was put on hold.

Two members of the group have already been to Eurovision. Sanja Vučić represented Serbia at Eurovision 2016 with her song “Goodbye (Shelter)”. The year before, Ksenija Knežević sang backing vocals for her father, the popular Montenegrin singer Knez.

The cancellation has not slowed the ladies down. At the end of November, they released three new songs and music videos all in one day – “Čaje Šukarije”, “Lopove” and “Want Ya”.

“Čaje Šukarije” (“Pretty Girl”) is a fast paced, pop banger with Middle Eastern flavours that could grace any club in Belgrade. It’s a cover of the song from Roma icon and “Queen of the Gypsies”, the late Esma Redžepova. Esma also has Eurovision links after she represented North Macedonia at Eurovision back in 2013 together with Vlatko Lozanoski.

Their second release, “Lopove” which means “Thieves” in English, is another dance club hit with Asian influences.

“Want Ya” was the only song sung in English. Although it’s the shortest song of the three at only two minutes and fourteen seconds, “Want Ya” still got us moving!

What’s your first take on “Loco Loco”? Will this match “Hasta La Vista”? Did you like the music video snippet? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

This gives me chaotic energy … and not in a good way? I don’t know how to explain it. I am really excited to see them but the teaser was “too much noise” for my taste 🙁

This is gonna hit like a trainwreck but not in a good way. Powerful but overprduced, shouty and sexualized; smells like that to me. Some people will love it for sure, though. Let’s see if it is that way when it’s released but I don’t think I’ll like it.

Not a huge fan of teasers or snippets. I mean, you could just release the song. However, I loved Hurricane last year and am sure that with a year to work on a song that this is going to be really good.
Guess the teaser worked and I’m pumped for Friday. Ugh. They got me.

The truth is regular women don’t want to look like that. Having curves in the right spot, yes, we want it, but not like that and certainly not if needed to spent loads of money to be so.

Exactly. The “regular women” do not want to look like that. Instead they cover all their body parts, cook for their kids, obey to their husbands, and in general do everything to please their husband. If they earn any money (which should not happen, since their place is in the kitchen or the bedroom), they are obliged by the traditional laws of patriarchal society to give all earnings to males.

Dressing up is great, never said anything about it. Making yourself look beautiful is great, we all agree on that. But you’re the ones that are projecting on what I haven’t even said! I’m clearly talking about the fake plastic look, not the “glam” look! Why are you even thinking being hypersexulized is fighting the patriarchy? That’s the opposite, really.

You have mentioned “regular women” without actually defining the term. Not everyone can become a scientist or politician. Those people are in most instances above the average. Your comment refers to an ordinary woman, who is not by default a scientist or politician. However, you are making serious generalizations which shows how uneducated you are. It is not a bad thing to be uneducated, but to be proud of it is something else. Furthermore, you impose yourself as a representative from a particular group (in this case you are speaking on behalf of every “regular woman”) only to make your… Read more »

I’m like the only person who wasn’t convinced Serbia would qualify last year (I also wasn’t convinced in 2018 or 2019, so clearly I just don’t know how people will respond to Serbia’s entries), so let’s just wait and see. It could go either way.

Now I’m really scared! The fact that Dmitrov worked on the song is reassuring but I just worry about the taste level. Hasta la Vista was extremely chaotic and not necessarily in a good way. We always knew Sanja was super energetic and that made us fall in love with her. But when we have her not toned down and coupled with 2 more girls that are equally attention seeking it gets too much. I really like them but I’m still waiting for a moment when they start looking like a cohesive group rather than 3 soloists fighting for best… Read more »

The styling would suggest that their banger will have an 80s/early 90s theme which seems to be a common thing this year.

I don’t think so, the video producer that created the music video used to be the most popular in 90s and early 00s, and now still produces old fashioned and cheap videos even for modern music.

This is definitely the year of lots of fun female bangers and I don’t think they will all make it through…I think the winners will ultimately be the song that bridge juries and fans…so Serbia will have to compete against Moldova, Greece, Albania and Latvia just in their semi alone…and when you add Iceland and Czech bringing something fun–it seems like there will be limited space for these songs to all advance…and that’s not even considering what Armenia, Poland and Denmark will bring

Is Albania going to be a fun banger? The revamp packs a punch, but it’s not a bop (it’s a quality song, but the tempo and composition is not that of a fun club hit). Latvia is probably just going to be a wall of noise like 2020 and while that could be fun I don’t see it being a traditional bop.

Also, Hurricane will be one of the biggest acts going into Rotterdam and that would count for something.

To be clear–in my post I wasn’t making the case that Serbia WOULD NOT qualify–just that so many of these female-centric pop songs will likely have some casualties…it’s typical as fans of genres spread their votes around…I think when Salvador won, Blackbird was in the same final and it was an equally admirable ballad with a wallop of emotion and it didn’t make it through as Salvador sucked up some of the votes

It sounds like a “cheap Bulgarian turbofolk song”? What specific Bulgarian song(s) are you referring to, because I see that you’ve listened to some of those (so it can’t be that bad, or otherwise your music taste and this comment are questionable xD) I think we can’t really say anything about the song yet, because they only released a super short teaser! 🙂

Are they really? Because being super popular in Sebia doesn’t equal being popular in the Balkans 😀 Coming from the Balkans and knowing my fair share of the music scene I really can’t say they would come to my mind as popular – in fact, haven’t heard of them before the song contest. But interesting, will defo have a look into this.

they are a relatively new group, but they are certainly one of the most popular acts in former yugoslavia for the last couple of years, just look at their youtube and spotify figures! but of course ex-yu is not the only part of the balkans (even though local ppl often think so:)
