, who is a well known folk singer in the Balkan region. She started her music career in 2011 in Greece as a club dancer and master of ceremonies. Nikolija also recorded her first song there, but failed to achieve success. After that, she moved to Serbia to restart her career in 2013 with R&B and rap songs which had attention-grabbing and controversial lyrics. Actually, she brought that kind of music to west Balkans.

The 1970s commercial folk had the buttoned up Lepa Lukić and Silvana Armenulić as its biggest stars - singers who made names because of exceptional, or at the very least above average vocal talents. Then in the 1980s, the places at the top were taken over by Lepa Brena, Vesna
, Zorica Brunclik and Dragana Mirković whose huge popularity was thought to have more to do with their physical than vocal attributes; to some it appeared that their love lives were more important to their popularity than the quality of their music. The fact that the 1990s brought Ceca and Indira Radić, and 2000s Seka Aleksić and Jelena Karleuša to the top of the commercial heap was the next logical step according to this view. It was only natural, they argue, that considering the trend up to that point, the next step in commercial folk would be open disregard for the vocals & music and complete focus on the physical.
In 2005 Vuco cut his long hair short, which he had been growing for many years, in order to be taken more seriously when discussing business in regard to his newly purchased soccer team in Croatia. He did this on advice from a colleague. Media in Croatia reported on his new appearance as going so far as to make Vuco look "sympathetic". Despite having cut his hair, he left his very short beard the way it was. "Volim piti" is one of his greatest hits, also translated in English, Swedish and Ukrainian. One of his newer singles is Volim narodno in which he copied parts from popular song "We will rock you". The song is a duet with popular Serbian Folk singer Mitar Miric. He has also collaborated with other big names in the industry, which include Dzej Ramadanovski and Vesna

, and her father is Vlada Jovanovic, former marketing chief at PGP RTS. Being only 6 years old, she starred in her mother's music video for the song "Kad bih znala kako si". In primary school she evinced an inclination for singing, winning the municipal and town singing competitions. She always wanted to be a performer, but her father wanted her to finish college. She moved to Athens Greece, and got a degree in International Business at the American Deree College. Her parents are divorced and she has a half-sister Teodora Jovanović and a half-brother Luka Jovanović on the father's side.
The so-called "novokomponovana muzika" ('newly composed music') can be seen as a result of the urbanization of folk music. In its early times, it had a professional approach to performance, used accordion and clarinet, and typically included love songs or other simple lyrics (though there have long been royalist and anti-Communist lyrical themes persisting underground). Many of the genre's best performers also play forms imported from even further abroad. These include Šaban Šaulić, Toma Zdravković, and Silvana Armenulić. At a later stage, the popular performers such as Lepa Brena, Vesna
and Dragana Mirković used more influences from pop music, oriental music, and other genres, which led to the emergence of turbo folk.
Dragana Mirković remains the biggest turbo-folk star in the country, with her numerous hits ("Sama, Plači zemljo, Pitaju me u mom kraju, Poslednje veče, Ne vraćam se starim ljubavima, Nisam ni metar od tebe"). With her pink hair and very recognizable screen persona, Zorica Brunclik ("Kada bi me pitali, Košava, Otkopčano jeleče, Ja znam, A tebe nema") could be considered Dragana's follow-up. Vesna
, the previous wife of Zorica's husband, has preserved the fame she had in 80s with hit-songs like "Jorgovani, Ja imam nekog a ti si sam, Malo po malo, Kunem ti se životom, Idem preko zemlje Srbije". Among the others, there are Halid Bešlić ("Miljacka, Prvi poljubac, Put me zove"), Ana Bekuta ("Oluja, Imam jedan život, Kralj ponoći, Zlatiborske zore"), Sinan Sakić ("Ej, otkad sam se rodio, Delija momak, Prvi poljubac"), Stojanka Novaković Stoja ("Moje srce ostariti ne sme, Žena starija, Samo") and Nedeljko Bajić Baja ("Ginem, ginem, Mini suknja, Zapisano u vremenu"). The absolute record in sales of this kind of music is still held by Lepa Brena, who has sold around 40 million records and held concerts all over the Balkans. Next to that, due to her enormous popularity, Brena is considered the symbol of former Yugoslavia, of Yugoslav unity and power, and after the break of federation, of so-called "Yugo-nostalgia".
Serbian folk scene was not homogeneous nor uniformed. On one hand, following Western models, Vesna
was creating a star-image, being sex-symbol, fashionista and gay icon as well. On the other hand, Era Ojdanić ("Pauk, Mercedes, Rado, lepa rado, Oženjen sam, kao momak živim"), Boro Drljača ("Plači mala, plači, Stari vuk") and Vera Matović ("Belu bluzu suza kvasi, Šta ti moja bluza smeta, Hajde, hajde, milovanje moje") have created folk subgenre, sort of rural folk, singing about works in field, domestic animals and themes from Serbian village. Louis was combining Serbian folk music with jazz. Due to her Dalmatian origin, Neda Ukraden ("Zora je svanula, Vrati se s kišom, Ne zovi me u ponoć") was singing pop music, sometimes "enriching" it with folk ornaments. Almost 50 years after her debut, she has re-established her career with electro-dance songs ("Da se nađemo na pola puta"). Since his beginning in 70s, Šaban Šaulić was singing about women ("Još ovu noć, Dođi da ostarimo zajedno, Kraljice moga srca"), and managed to maintain a certain level of popularity next four decades, while as a confirmation of which comes his nickname - "King of Folk Music". One of the best representatives of turbo-folk era would certainly be Mica Trofrtaljka ("Drž' se ćeri čvrstog kursa, I labavi ume da zabavi, Davorike dajke, Uteraj mi kola u garažu") with her extremelly vulgar songs.
