2006 and her first music video one month later. In March 2008 Andrea released her first album, Ogan v kravta. In August of
the same year she sang a duet Samo moi with the Romanian star Costi Ionita and the song became a summer hit. Then they
started to work together and released many hits, including the duets Izbiram teb, Upotrebena, Neblagodaren, Lazha go s teb,
and Lyubovnik. Also, Costi is the composer of Andrea’s other best hits like "Men si tarsil", "Day mi vsichko, Hayde, Opa",
"Izlazhi me" and many others included on her albums Men si tarsil (released in October 2009) and Andrea (released in
December 2010). Андреа & Costi are working together in a project called Sahara and make modern dance music for
European and International audiences. Some of their tracks are in collaboration with great world music stars including Bob
Sinclar, Shaggy, and Mario Winans.

At the start of her career, Andrea was offered a solo recording contract, but declined.
In 2011 she expanded some of her music to America such as Mine ft. Mario Winas, and Champagne ft. Shaggy. Now she is
working on several new songs, some that are released this year is "Na eks" featuring "Kristal". She is preparing to release her
