They’re the Serbian girl group with a habit of singing songs with Spanish titles. But now Hurricane — that’s Sanja Vučić, Ivana Nikolić and Ksenija Knežević — are proving they can work it in English as well, with a special version of “Loco Loco”.
In March, Sanja told us that the song is a call for women to break with tradition and to have the confidence to approach men if they’ve got a crush. The English version of “Loco Loco” continues with that theme, putting women — and in this case Sanja, Ivana and Ksenija — firmly in control of a romantic situation.
The new version comes with a slick music video filmed at RTS studios in Belgrade. It features the three women performing with plenty of social distance on a specially built stage. Behind them we see screens with simple geometric lighting and what appear to be abstractions of blue and purple jellyfish. No matter. The real focus here is on the three gorgeous voices, which come into sharp focus owing to pared-back (and rather laid-back) production.
Loco Loco lyrics — Hurricane (English Version)
“Basically, it’s a love song,” Sanja told us. “It’s something about a girl and a boy.” However, it’s not a typical Disney-style romance where the damsel in distress waits patiently for a prince to come her way. Oh no. As you can read in the English lyrics below, the singers perform from a position of power, showing they are most definitely in control.
Nothing seems to matter when you’re with me,
I can rock your world, easily drive you crazy
It’s clear they enjoy tantalizing and teasing, and they know their Mister feels it too.
I want you real close, want you begging
Are you feeling the burn, feeling the fire?
Hey, hey what’s wrong baby?
You’ve been so sad lately,
Hey, hey what’s wrong
Seems like candy, I can drive you loco
The chorus maintains the cutesy rhythm and flow of the Serbian original, ultimately delivering the message that these women can drive this guy crazy.
I’m acting live a diva,
You better run, run, run,
Give me some, some, some,
I am the one, one, one
I can drive you loco, loco
