I have been a fan of Lao Ra ever since the release of her pop anthem “Jesus Made Me Bad” back in 2016, since then Lao Ra has gone on to release a varied array of interesting tracks, from the likes of “Wild at Heart”, “Bala“, “Me Gusta“, “Patrona“, “White Boi” with Dillon Francis; and many others.
Today brings us to the release of her brand new single “Picaflor”, a bouncy, pop anthem 95% sang in Spanish between Lao Ra and her co-star C Tangana. Following on from the release of “White Boi”, “Picaflor” sees Lao Ra share a sultrier and more melancholic version of herself than ever before.
On the single, Lao Ra revealed that “Picaflor” is a song about a hunter and a prey, and where a “hunter is hunted” and “where hummingbirds fly” and where “flowers grow in the foreground of chaos.” The song is essentially just a metaphor for a toxic relationship, as shown graphically with the climax of the music video.
Whether you don’t understand Spanish or not, the lyrics have been provided for you so you can read along to the song, and enjoy the fantastic portrayal of a back-and-forth struggle for a romantic relationship.
Lao Ra’s “Picaflor” is now out through Sony Music Latin.
