The song has grown very fast ”, he celebrated. “I think it’s the song of mine that has risen the fastest in the global charts. At the moment it is already at number 52 of the world Spotify and God grant we can get into the top 50.

If the situation improves and the optimistic forecasts about the arrival of a vaccine are fulfilled, the Colombian will go on stages such as those of the Rocío Jurado Auditorium in Seville, the Wizink Center in Madrid or the Starlite Catalana Occidente in Marbella. But the promise also includes the Canary Islands, where he has the certainty to pass once the concerts begin. “I’ll be there, count on me,” he promised.
The calendar will extend mainly between the months of June and July 2021. “I’m very happy because that’s where I finally return to the stage. I am a live concert musician and I will be on stage in the Canary Islands as well.

I saw him perform at a Lo Nuestro awards showcase earlier this year and I loved what he was broadcasting on stage. I quickly said that I wanted to sing with him. He had this song, I sent it to him and he liked it too. It is being one of those issues that people make their own, “he recalled.
Ideal Girl is a happy and optimistic project that is based on a success of 20 years ago: I want a girl from Latin Dreams. “It is one of my favorite songs and of many people in Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and in all these Andean countries. It was a very big hit on them. It is obvious that if this song had come out in the days of Spotify it would be huge globally, “the Colombian qualified. “Thank God the song continues to connect and a hit is a hit even if 20 or 50 years pass,” added the interpreter.

It gives me a lot of vitality to be here and to realize that there are still ways to move and move on if you try and do your best. Obviously, it is still a risk every time you leave your home in these times but it is for culture, for the love of art and the love of being able to share with other people everything that we carry in our hearts and that we convert in music ”, he confided. In addition, he has also just released a song in which he collaborates with two of his idols, Michael Bublé and Gary Barlow, leader of Take That, Elita. “We have not been able to meet in person because everything has been by Facetime but I already feel like we’ve been friends for a long time, “he lamented.
