Rayden - Crying Street
the rapper Rayden He has been one of the most committed with his candidacy for Eurovision and that seems to have been transferred to the figures of 'Calle de la llorería', a happy song, with a folkloric sound and with lyrics loaded with darts and humour.

Sabela Maneiro, Olaia Maneiro and Aida Tarrío attend the Benidorm Fest with a proposal that mixes Galician folklore with an electronic and dark production, although closer to a movie soundtrack than to an avant-garde theme.

'Ay mama' begins as an almost ecclesiastical song that builds up until it reaches a final "Mamá!" epic, very Eurovision.
Rigoberta vindicates mothers and tits in a song that has almost 3 million views in Spotify and whose letter has been censored in Instagram for including the word "tit", a complete paradox that only reinforces its message
