Amaia experiences ‘El Encuentro’ with Alizzz in her latest single!

| October 25, 2020

One half of Spain’s 2018 Eurovision representative, Amaia Romero, has moved on from Alfred Garcia and experienced a new encounter with Spanish rapper Allizzz in her latest single ‘El encuentro’. Meaning the encounter in English, the song is sung fully in Spanish.

El encuentro is a modern and slick electronic tune. The song speaks about how the duo have not communicated in years with one another. But after they encounter one another again, they rekindle and begin to question the future of their relationship. The accompanying music video shows a more rebellious side to Amaia that we saw from Lisbon in 2018.

The entire song is sung in Spanish, but here are the lyrics translated into English: 

What are we going to do?
What are we going to do?

What a coincidence that I found you
What are you doing here, how long has it been?
A déjà vu, I think I’ve dreamed it
How’s life going?
How much you’ve changed

I’ve been thinking about you more than I should
How good your new haircut looks
Do you remember that last night?
You left your job, but you’re happy

We meet again after a year
Without knowing about each other
What are we going to do?
What are we going to do?
We weren’t looking for it, but it happened
And what do we do now, you and me?

Come outside with me
Let’s smoke, and share our stories
We’re leaving, you’re tired of this place
Better somewhere quieter

Who is Amaia?

Amaia Romero rose to fame in Spain after being crowned champion of the popular Spanish music reality TV show Operación Triunfo in 2018. Amaia won the ticket to represent Spain at Eurovision 2018 with then boyfriend, Alfred Garcia, with the song Tu canción and finished 23rd in the grand final. The poor result has not hindered Amaia’s career in Spain which has gone from strength to strength. 

In September 2019, her debut album Pero No Pasa Nada charted at number 1 of the Spanish album chart. Amaia toured Spain extensively following the release of the album, until shows were cancelled a because of the current Covid-19 pandemic. Most recently, Amaia has been nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in the Best Long Form Music Video category for her documentary Amaia, Una vuelta al Sol.
