Spanish singer-songwriter and emerging new artist Alvaro Soler has impacted the music world with his infectious and good feeling pop anthem “El mismo sol” (English: “The Same Sun“).
The track is confirmed as the lead single from Soler’s debut studio album “Eterno Agosto” (English: Eternal August), which was released on June 12th, only in Italy, via Triebel & Zuckowski, Airforce1 Records and Universal Music.
The unexpected success has come when after the official release of the single on digital retailers on May 8, the song is No. 1 on iTunes Italy and has become one of the most added tracks this week in Italia.
The Barcelona-based artist debuted the music video directed by Daniel Eceolaza on April 24th. What is the secret of this success? Easy. It’s a catchy song, with a Mediterranean air and influence of Latino-Spanish folk rhythms. The infectious and interesting percussion make it a true anthem for this summer.
During her 46th B’Day party on July 25th at 1 OAK Southampton club, American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez premiered a special new version of the song with her vocals. This Spanglish remix serves as the international version to launch the song into the American and British market.
“El mismo sol” with the extra vocals of Jennifer Lopez was released on iTunes on August 21st.
