With the release of their first album also called Next Time in only 8 months, they gained popularity and are now an important part of the national music scene. Next Time formed in early 2008 after signing with Plan B Production. Discovered by composer and songwriter Jovan Jovanov, the duo released their first single "Ne Veruvam Vo Tebe" ("I Don't Trust You") in May, 2008. The song's lyrics were written by Next Time with Jovanov as the producer. "Ne Veruvam Vo Tebe" immediately topped multiple national charts and was quickly a hit which shot Next Time through the roof of Macedonia's music scene.
The band also released their first music video for the song. Soon followed Next Time's first festival appearance at the First Radio Music Festival "Zvezdena Nok" (Ѕвездена Ноќ) in June, 2008. At "Zvezdena Nok", the duo won the "Summer Hit of the Year" award with their second song "Me Mislish Li?" ("Am I In Your Thoughts?"). Two months later at Ohrid Fest, Next Time were voted "Best New Artist" with their third single "Me Ostavi Sam Da Zhiveam" ("You Left Me All Alone").
However, Next Time's biggest festival success came in October when they won the second semi-final evening at MakFest (MакФест) - perhaps the most renowned Music Festival from Macedonia. With their fourth single "Bez Tebe Tivko Umiram" ("I'm Slowly Dying Without You") they went on to finish second in the final of the festival, only three points behind the winner. On the 16th of December, 2008 Next Time released their debut album which was also called "Next Time". The album featured 13 songs, two of which were bonus songs sung in a foreign language. One of the bonus songs was in English and was named "Why Did You Go".
The other was a cover of an Italian pop-opera song called "Caruso". Four music videos for the first four singles were already circulating the media when the album was released, with a few more videos to come. Read more on Last.fm.
