That same whirlwind year she performs it on the popular Italian music show Festivalbar and flies to Japan to promote the single. The Game also becomes the title of her first album, whose ten tracks let Neja expand her repertoire to include pop music Fairytale and Mum’s Day. But The Game doesn’t say goodbye to dance music: January 2000 sees a dance remix of Fairytale circulating around Europe. She travels to Germany to shoot a video to be distributed by Universal. Later that summer Neja releases the new single Singin Nanana and appears a second time on Festivalbar.
In 2001 Neja releases Time Flies and Back 4 The Morning, the latter of which launches her for the first time into American consciousness. She flies to New York, Boston, and San Antonio for successful performances. In 2002 Neja signs with Universal to sharpen her focus on pop music. Looking For Something is the summer hit that brings her for a third time to Festivalbar and opens the way to her second album Hot Stuff, including the single To The Music. From 2003 to 2005, Neja performs for her devoted fans in Italy and other parts of Europe, as well as in India as a representative of an Italian clothing company. In 2005 she signs with the label Melodica which releases her 11th single "Who’s gonna be?", a pop-ish song with several remixes (raggae, dance, rock...) and a video. In 2007 with a new team production composed by Ivan Russo (Atollo records) and the french dj Benjamin Braxton (Sound4label) Neja returns to the dance music with the new single Catwalk, released at first in France.
She’s now writing her third album. 2008 is the year of sperimentation for her, she returns to her old "root": jazz , recording Acousticlub, an album of cover hits rearranged in an acoustic, jazzy way (as Sweet dreams, Papa don't preach, man in the mirror, hit me baby one more time...) and a new version of her songs (Destiny and The game). She likes this project so much that she records another album of this kind called 133 Sushiclub in collaboration with two excellent musicians (guitarist cristian Montgnani and Bass player Larry Mancini). 2009 is dedicated to dance music again... Loving you is the new single in collaboration with two deejays from Turin, Peter Damir and Gianluca Argante. The song is in promotion in Uk and rising the club charts...
