Премьер-Министр aka Premier Ministr is a Russian so-called boy band. The idea behind the band is to form a boyband, not especially for teenagers. Four men came together to form Premier Ministr in 1997. Their first real success came in 2000 with the remake of a very popular Russian tune, "Oriental Song". It became a huge hit in Russia. In 2001 one of the members, Dmitry Lansky, left the group for a solo career and was replaced.
