Life and career
1982–1999: Early life
Emina grew up in a Bosniak family in Novi Pazar, the most populous city in the Bosniak-majority region of Sandžak in southwest Serbia. Her mother, Senija Jahović is a paediatrician and her father was a cardiothoracic surgeon. She is the youngest of three children and has an elder sister who is a child psychiatrist educated in Prague and living in Belgrade, Sabina Jahović, and an elder brother, Mirsad Türkcan (né Jahović) who is the first Turkish basketball player to play in the NBA.
At the age of seven, she attended primary school "Meša Selimović" in Novi Pazar and started to take classic guitar lessons in Mokranjac Music School. She completed the basic school of music and performed in the choir of her hometown of Novi Pazar and took part in the local folklore section. Following the example of her brother Mirsad, she began her training in basketball when she was in the 6th grade. Regarding this period, it is stated that Emina grew 11 cm in only four months. When she was 13 years old, her father (1951–1995) died at age 44. Two years later, Emina was told by her mother to stop playing basketball because she was quite thin.
Whilst in high school, she participated in several theatre performances, including Antigone. She sang the Ana Sofrenović song "Kaži zašto me ostavi" in the play Galeb during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Similarly, since some of the roles required singing, she realized that singing was her real passion. Prior to this, she always wanted to be an architect.

With her song "Uzalud se budim", Emina also took third place in the Sunčane skale's event called Pjesma ljeta (Song of Summer) among 23 entrants and accepted the Bronzana sirena (Bronze Mermaid).

The song was first presented at the Srpski radijski festival (Serbian Radio Festival) in Vrnjačka Banja. Jahović said that she had written the lyrics for "Još ti se nadam" (I am Still Hoping for You) after she had broken up with Mustafa Sandal for a short time in 2006. However, its music was credited to the influential Greek recording artist Mihalis Hatzigiannis. The single was re-released later on in Emina's 2009 album.
