Her next album was Feniks ("Fenix").

"Ostatnia Szansa" ("Last Chance") was her second single from "Feniks" reaching #1 on MTV Poland. She released "Potrafię kochać" ("I can love") as her third single.
Kasia Cerekwicka's second album Feniks catapulted her career to superstar status. While her two big hits "Na Kolana" and "Potrafię kochać" were hummed throughout Poland, her studio album quickly achieved prestigious platinum status. She won the Superjedynka Award for the Record of The Year and 2006 Opole Festival and next won the Karslschamn Baltic States Festival 2006 award in Sweden on July 22 with her song "Na Kolana".
She took part in "Taniec z Gwiazdami" ("Dancing with the stars") on TVN, placing 4th place (episode 7) out of ten stars. Her latest single "S.O.S" gained popularity on all radio stations and was a candidate to represent Poland in the Sopot International Song Festival 2007 but did not win.
On October 8, 2007 Cerekwicka released her third new album Pokój 203 ("Room 203"). The second single (after "S.O.S.") was a song called "Zostań" ("Stay").
