Open the windows and let Hurricane sweep you away. Serbia’s Eurovision 2021 trio have now released their song “Loco Loco” – and it is indeed crazy crazy!
After months of speculation and a few weeks of teasing, we finally know what Hurricane will be performing at the contest this year in Rotterdam. Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević – the three queens that make up the group – bring a colourful music video with lots of glitter and disco balls.
Hurricane – “Loco Loco” (Serbia Eurovision 2021)
“Loco Loco” is a full-force banger. Hurricane take the energy and attitude from their Eurovision 2020 song “Hasta La Vista” and manage to build on it ten-fold.
The song is sung 99% in Serbian – the exceptions being the Spanish title lyrics and one English phrase from Sanja in the bridge.
The music video for “Loco Loco” features the girls of Hurricane bringing the dynamism that fans love them for. Sanja, Ivana and Ksenija each rock an 8os-inspired curly perm hairstyle that contrasts from the straight hair we usually see from them. They all serve face to the camera and bring the party atmosphere.
There’s also balls aplenty in the video, with bathtubs that are filled with disco balls and smaller multi-coloured ones.
“Loco Loco” is produced by Nemanja Antonić and Darko Dimitrov, with lyrics from Hurricane member and Eurovision veteran Sanja Vučić. Antonić was also 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.
Hurricane’s path to Eurovision 2021
Girl group Hurricane originally earned the right to represent Serbia at Eurovision 2020 after winning national final Beovizija 2020 with the song “Hasta la vista”. But sadly, with the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, their dream was put on hold.
After a few months of waiting, it was eventually confirmed that Hurricane had been internally selected to represent Serbia at Eurovision 2021. They’re song “Loco Loco” was also internally selected.
The name of Hurricane’s Eurovision 2021 entry was initially revealed last week. 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.
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.
Despite the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, the trio have not slowed down. At the end of November last year, they released three new songs and music videos all in one day – “Čaje Šukarije”, “Lopove” and “Want Ya”.
