Diva is the tenth studio album by Serbian singer Jelena Karleuša. It was released on 11 June 2012 via City Records. It was advertised as the fastest album on the Balkans to be certified gold: allegedly selling 200.000 copies during the first 24 hours, although those figures have never been officially certified by any institution, since in Serbia to this day there has been no serious certification system of units sold. Most of the songs on the album are covers of previously released Turkish, Indian, Israeli, Spanish and Albanian songs, with lyrics added in Serbian language, which has been Karleuša's signature method of work throughout her whole career.

Background[edit]

In early 2010, Karleuša announced that she’s planning to release a new studio album, after releasing "Insomnia", the lead single of the album. The song was downloaded for free over 1.5 million times during the first 24 hours of its release. The music video was released later in that year. She also released singles "Muškarac koji mrzi žene", "Nova religija (Plava Šeherezada)", "So" and her biggest hit "Krimi rad".

On 9 June 2012, two days before the official release of the album, Serbian news portal "Opera 17" posted the preview of all eleven songs from the album.[1]
