Singing Sensation Holly Valance
Holly Rachel Vukadinović (Serbian Cyrillic : Вукадиновић) (born 11 May 1983), who is better known by her stage name of Holly Valance, is an Australian actress and ARIA nominated singer.
Holly's first single as a recording artist was a cover of American singer Stella Soleil's "Kiss Kiss", released in 2002. The song debuted at #1 in both the Australian ARIA and UK Singles Charts charts in April/May 2002. "Kiss Kiss" is, in turn, an English interpretation of the song Şımarık by Turkish superstar Tarkan. The director's cut version of the music video was notable in that Valance appeared to be dancing naked, but in fact she was wearing flesh colored panties but no top. The footage was then digitally retouched adding strategically placed lighting effects. The song was nominated for 4 ARIA awards.
Her next single, "Down Boy" peaked at #2 in the UK and at #3 in Australia. Her début album Footprints was released on October 14, 2002. It debuted and peaked at #9 in the UK and #15 in Australia. The album's third and final single "Naughty Girl" peaked at #3 in Australia and at #16 in the UK.
