Senida Hajdarpašić (Slovene pronunciation: [seˈnìːda ˈxàːjdarpaʃitʃ]; born 9 April 1985), known by her stage name Senidah (/sɛˈndɑː/ sen-EE-dah), is a Slovenian singer-songwriter. Born in Ljubljana, Slovenia, she rose to prominence as a lead singer of the Slovenian band MUFF. She is often dubbed "the Balkan Trap Diva" by media.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

Senidah attracted regional fame with the release of her debut studio album, Bez tebe, in March 2019 for the Belgrade based label Bassivity Music. The record was preceded by Senidah's first mainstream successful single "Slađana" in March 2018.

Career[edit]

She debuted with the solo single "Pustinjom" (Through a Desert) in 2010, but soon joined electro soul-pop band MUFF. Their debut single "Naj sije v očeh" (Keep the Glow in the Eye) was awarded the song of the year in Slovenia.[8] MUFF were the runners-up in the preselection of Slovenia's entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest and their eponymous debut album was later declared the album of the year.

Senidah rose to regional fame in March 2018 upon the release of her debut single in Serbian "Slađana" for the Belgrade based hip-hop label Bassivity Digital.[9] In June, she released her second solo single "Belo" (White), whilst in August, she was featured on the soundtrack single for the Serbian movie Južni Vetar, titled "4 strane sveta" (4 Sides of the World) by Serbian rapper Coby.[10][11] At the end of the year Senidah released "Bez tebe" (Without You) and "Nisi bio tu" (You Weren't There). She then won Hip-hop Song of the Year award for "Slađana" at 2019 Music Awards Ceremony.[12] In March 2019, Senidah released her debut solo single in English, titled "Ride", for Universal Serbia, which had been recorded a couple of years prior. Her debut album Bez tebe was released on 25 March, entirely in Serbian.[13] On 21 April she performed at the Bassivity Showcase event in Belgrade Sports Hall, alongside Bassivity Digital collective.[14]

Senidah released "Mišići" (Muscles) and "Sve bih" ([I] Would Like Everything) featuring Atlas Erotika for FCKN A! in April and May, respectively. The former one saw great success, counting more than fifty million[a] views on YouTube. She also performed at Exit Gang and Sea Dance Festival.[15][16] On 9 August, she released "202", again in English.[17] Six days later, a new single "Kamikaza" (Kamikaze) by Bosnian rappers Jala Brat and Buba Corelli was released, featuring Senidah.[18] The single was great commercial success. On 26 September, Austrian rapper RAF Camora posted a snippet of his upcoming collaboration with Senidah on his Instagram story. The song, titled "100%", was released on 28 November, alongside the music video that was shot in Barcelona, Spain.[19] It debuted at 28 on Official German Charts on 6 December, becoming the first song in Serbo-Croatian to achieve that.[20][21]

Personal life[edit]

Senidah was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Her parents are from Montenegro[1] and she lives on Ljubljana–Belgrade route.[22]

When she was a guest in a show Nešto Drugačije and was answering fans' questions, she was asked about her sexuality to which she replied:

I love people. I don't look at who they are or what they are. It is only important that I find you okay and that's it. I love good people. Uncorrupted people.

The response sparked debates about the singer's possible bisexuality.[23] In an interview with the Serbian edition of Hello! she said that rumours about her sexuality do not bother her and that "she's in a [emotional] relationship with music".[24]
