The Real Thing (2016)


Highway is a Montenegrin band. They were founded in 2013 by Petar Tošić, Marko Pešić and Luka Vojdović. They enjoyed listening to pop, rock, blues and jazz, and their Idol was Ed Sheeran.
The band rose to fame when they participated in the 2nd season of X Factor Adria and ended in 4th place. Their audition song in The X Factor, “Bar na kratko”, also became their first hit. They participated in another contest, Sunčane Skale, with that song. They reached the 3rd place in the newcomer section of the contest.
In October 2015, it was announced that they would represent Montenegro in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.  On 23 November they presented their first song, “Sam”. A month later, Bojan Jovović, former member of No Name, joined the group. The song they brought in Eurovision,  entitled “The real thing”, was presented in March 2016. At the Eurovision Song Contest itself, the band unfortunately didn’t manage to reach the final.
The follow up of the Eurovision song, “Lud”, was released in October of 2016. On July 28, 2017, their video of the song “Što dalje” was published.
In 2018, the band signed with Croatia Records. Their first successes were “Navika” and “Salt Lake City”. In 2019, they performed at the Miss Montenegro ceremony.

In 2020, the journal CDM declared that the music video for the song “Navika” is one of the most beautiful Montenegrin music videos. In 2021, they were nominated at the Adria Muzzik Video Awards 2020 in the category of Best Rock Music Video for the song “Svijetlija Strana Ulice”. They lost to the music video for the song “Ti Si Taj” by the Serbian band Goblini.

Also in 2021, they released their first album, “Skica Za Portret,” which includes 10 tracks, including 2 unreleased songs.
