Following their short musical hiatus, the band released "Brasil", which similarly topped charts in Romania, Russia, Greece, Spain, Moldova, Turkey, the Netherlands, Serbia[4] and Hungary[citation needed]. Furthermore, the single was nominated for "Best Dance Song" at Romanian Music Awards.[6] Their song "Mandala" from 2011, reached for the first time a top-ten peak position in Russia and the later released song "Goodbye" was the most playied song in their native country in that year. It rose up to popularity in more countries and reached the first position in the Romanian Singles Chart and the fourth position in the Romanian End-Year Chart. "Musica" was released in 2013 and became the band's second most successful single. It was a top-ten hit in Italy and Russia and was certified gold by the FIMI.[citation needed]
