She’s the independent artist who came out of nowhere to win Objetivo Eurovisión 2016. And Spanish sensation Barei hasn’t slowed down since then, as she proved with the release of her latest song and music video “I Don’t Need To Be You”.
The “Say Yay!” singer penned the tune in support of kids who, like her, have had to endure the jokes and disdain of their classmates. “I don’t need to fake, ’cause I’m more than a dummy!”, she says. Preach!
The track delivers a fierce message against bullying: “I don’t need to be the one I’m not”, “I never hurt no one for who they are”, “Just live and let me live”. And thank God she’s no one else, as Barei is just fabulous as she is!
Packed with electro beats, “I Don’t Need To Be You” is both current and danceable. A children’s choir supports the Spanish star, while a male voice helps build the bridge by repeating “Viva la vida”.
In order to tackle such a difficult topic, Barei decided to go big with the music video. She’s teamed up with Kidz On The Block, a teen dance ensemble, and serves us her trademark Eurovision footwork – but this time multiplied by 24!. Review At wiwibloggs.
