Petya Koleva Ivanova (Bulgarian: Петя Колева Иванова) (born June 26, 1984), best known by her stage name Preslava (Преслава), is a Bulgarian pop-folk singer. She was born in Dobrich, Bulgaria where she completed her musical education with the specialty ‘folk singing’. Since 2006, Preslava has been one of the most successful Bulgarian pop-folk singers.
Preslava's first performance was with Milko Kalaydzhiev (her discoverer) and the song “Нежен рекет”. Her first solo song was called “Тази нощ". Her first album was “Preslava”, of which songs like “Нямаш сърце”, “Горчиви спомени”, “Мили мой” and “Дума за вярност”, as well as her first song, stood out.
The following year, 2005, she won the award ‘Début of 2004’ at the “4th Annual Awards of Planeta TV’. Preslava made her biggest hit – “Дяволско желание” which made thousands of people her fans. She was invited to participate in “Planeta Prima 2005”, Planeta Payner’s summer tour. A new album was released, this time called “Дяволско желание”. The hit songs from this album were: “Финални думи”, “Нямам право”, “Безразлична”, as well as the main song. Later, in 2006, Preslava won the awards “Most Prosperous Performer of 2005" and "Song of 2005" ( for "Дяволско желание")at the “5th Annual Awards of Planeta TV”. She released the song “И когато съмне”, which again became another big hit. Preslava became advertising face of mastic “Карнобатска” and released the advertising song – “Предай се на желанието”. She enjoyed great success and it was no surprise she again participated in the summer tour. The summer of 2006 was also the time in which her duet with Boris Dali appeared. It was called “Първи в сърцето”. After hits like “Заклевам те” and “Уморих се”, she again hit the top with her new album – “Интрига”. Its pilot song – “Лъжа е”, a rock entry, remains one of the most emblematic songs in her career.
Preslava started the new year with a song from her last album. The song was called “Нищо друго”. At the ceremony of “5th Annual Awards of Planeta TV”, she won the following prizes: ‘Female Singer of 2006’ and ‘Song of 2006’ (И когато съмне). A bit after that, she again took part in commercial for mastic “Карнобатска” and released a continuation of the first advertising song. Predictably, the new song was called “Предай се на желанието 2”. Preslava again participated in the summer tour. That was the reason to release a new song – “Предай се на желанието 2” 2007 can be considered as the most successful year for Preslava. Another proof for that are the mega hit “Моят нов любовник” as well as her new album “Не съм ангел” which was ranked gold. Every song in it became hit. A videos for the main song and the song “Последен адрес” were also made.
As every year, 2008 began with new awards for Preslava. She received the awards for ‘Female Singer of 2007’ as well as ‘Song of 2007’ (Лъжа е). Preslava released the song “Остави ми” which was thought to be the song of Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 but, unfortunately, this didn’t come to reality. She was again one of the stars of the tour “Planeta Derby Plus 2008” and this can be proved by the fact she closed the show. Until the end of the year, She released two songs which were accompanied by videos -“Новата ти” and “От добрите момичета”.
Preslava won the following awards at the “7th Annual Awards of Planeta TV” – ‘Female Singer of 2008’, ‘Album of 2008’ (Не съм ангел; although it appeared in 2007, it was still the most sold in 2008) and ‘Most Artistic Presence in Video’ (Новата ти). She was also invited to the festival “Montefolk” in Montenegro where she got the following award “Biggest Bulgarian Star” getting 90% of the votes. Along with the ceremony, she released the song “Червена точка”. Preslava also appears for a week in “VIP Brother 3”. Two new songs appear – her second duet with Boris Dali – “Бързо ли говоря” as well as “Зле разпределени”. During the summer tour, Preslava presents her new hits – “Пази се от приятелки” and “Феномен” which reminds of her mega hit “Лъжа е”. After two years, Preslava presents her new album - “Пази се от приятелки”. Until the end of the year, she releases two duets with Konstantin – “Усещане за жена” and “Не ми пречи”.
2010 Preslava won for 4th time in a row the award ‘Female Singer of 2009”. Other awards for her on the “8th Annual Awards of Planeta TV” were: ‘Album of 2009’ as well as ‘Duet song of 2009’ (Не ми пречи). She released her new song – “Дишай” who became big hit. Preslava announced she will not release any songs this year except songs with big potential to become hits. That’s why she had only 3 songs that year: “Пия за тебе”, a duet song, this time with Elena. That was one of the biggest hits of the summer. Other song which became big hit, was “Жените след мен”, as well as “Мръсно и полека”.
The first song of 2011 in Bulgaria was Preslava’s new song – “Как ти стои” which first air was in 01:11 AM. It was written by Costi who made most of the 2010 hits. Then Preslava recorded the song “Хайде, откажи ме” with Galena.
In 2015 at the “13th Annual Awards of Planeta TV” Preslava won - 'Ballad of the Year (2014)' for her song 'Ако утре ме губиш' (If you lose me tomorrow) and 'Female Singer of the Year (2014)'.
In 2016 at the “14th Annual Awards of Planeta TV” Preslava won 'Female Singer of the Year (2015)'.
