He rose to fame as a contestant on Zvezde Granda in 2007, finishing in fourth place. He instantly attracted popularity because of his appearance, for which he would often be compered to G Dragon, his attitude, but also for his relationship with another contestant, Rada Manojlović. His debut album, Solo, was released in May 2009 for Grand Production and was a commercial success. In 2010 Milan was chosen by the national election to represent Serbia on Eurovision Song Contest 2010.
