In the mad rush to cover last-minute Eurovision song releases last week, we somehow managed to miss the latest winds from Serbia’s Eurovision 2021 act Hurricane. Well let’s correct that wrong right now by having a listen to their acoustic performance of “Loco Loco”, which puts a stirring and emotional spin on their dance floor hit.
Yes, you heard that right. The talented trio of Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević performed their upbeat banger in a more mellow, unplugged form. It happened during a recent episode of the Ami G show. You may recognise the host. Ognjen Amidžić was part of the band Flamingosi, who sang “Ludi Letnji Ples” in Serbia’s Eurovision 2006 national selection.
Hurricane perform “Loco Loco” in acoustic
The three queens perform the song to guitar accompaniment while sitting around a coffee table with their fellow guests. It’s a welcome reminder that despite their wild costumes and fierce choreography, the main attraction here is their collective ability to sing and harmonise.
It’s a totally new spin on “Loco Loco” — a full-force banger that builds on the energy and attitude from their Eurovision 2020 song “Hasta La Vista”.
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.
