Lena Katina and Julia Volkova
Yesterday 36-year-old Lena Katina announced the reunion of the Tatu group, in which she sang with Yulia Volkova. The singer made the announcement on her Instagram by recording a short video. Katina said that next spring it is planned to release a tribute to the cult group of the early 2000s, in which she and Yulia will also take part.
So far, Katina urged fans to suggest which other popular artists they want to see in this project. Lena intrigued fans with another piece of news. On one of the major streaming sites, a series about the group with the participation of Katina and Volkova is being prepared for release.
Recall that the Tatu group was formed in 1999, the producer of the group was Ivan Shapovalov. The incredible success of the duo was immediately brought by the first video for the song “I'm out of my mind”, which was dedicated to the theme of lesbian love. The group adhered to this image on stage as well. Tatu quickly became one of the most popular and scandalous groups in the domestic show business. In addition, they managed to gain incredible popularity abroad – Tatu assembled stadiums in Japan, Germany and other countries.

In 2003, the group represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest, where, as a result, Yulia and Lena managed to take third place.
Since 2008, Tatu's active creative activities have ceased, and the soloists have begun to pursue solo careers. The group's performances happen occasionally at some major events. For example, they performed as guest artists at the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow in 2009, as well as at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. In the press, there were reports of strained relations between the ex-soloists. In rare interviews, Katina also noted that she does not communicate with Volkova and does not plan to work with her. Volkova herself, however, said that she did not rule out a new reunion of the group someday.
This year, Julia and Lena also gave an interview to Ksenia Sobchak, however, they starred in the issue separately. Volkova herself has not yet commented on the news about the tribute and the new performance of Tatu.
