CareerEdit

They sung mostly in their native language Serbian and have also sung songs in English on some occasions. Hurricane aimed to be recognized globally; they had two planned songs for Universal (as of November 2019),[2][3][4] and in September 2018 collaborated with Hollywood producer Stephen Belafonte.[5]

Following their participation in the 2020 edition of Beovizija (second semi-final night, 29 February; final night, 1 March), they were to represent Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, with the song "Hasta la vista".[6] However, on 18 March 2020, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[7] On 23 November 2020 it was confirmed that they would remain as the Serbian representatives in the 2021 contest, and their song "Loco Loco", was presented in March 2021.[8] They performed in the second semi-final of the contest on 18 May, where they qualified to the final. In the final, they finished in 15th place, receiving 102 points.

On 4 May 2022, it was announced that the current line-up of the group would part ways after a farewell tour, after which the members would embark on solo careers. It was also announced that the casting process for new members would begin shortly, while retaining the Hurricane name.[9][10] The group's last single as Vučić, Nikolić and Knežević, "Wow", was released on 19 June 2022.[11]
