Earlier this month, RTVE revealed that 9-year-old Soleá would be Spain’s representative in November’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The young star has recently recorded her entry for Warsaw and her team of composers have been revealed to have quite the impressive credentials in the global music industry!
“They’ve made a very cool song!”
As revealed by RTVE, the three composers of Soleá’s yet-to-be-revealed Junior Eurovision entry are César G. Ross, ASHA and Bruno Valverde. Regarding her entry, Soleá stated the following (translated from Spanish):
Working with the creators of the song has been a wonderful experience. They have made a very cool song and I felt very comfortable recording it.
A new experience for GRAMMY-winner Valverde
GRAMMY-winning Valverde has also produced the song which, he tells RTVE, is “happy and in Spanish”. He has previously produced tracks for Latin superstars including Ricky Martin, Juan Magán, Becky G, Karol G, and Álvaro Soler. Furthermore, he produced Lola Indigo’s multi-platinum 2018 album “Ya no quiero ná”. In 2015, he won a GRAMMY for Ricky Martin’s hit “La Mordidita”. He had the following to say about working with 9-year-old Soleá:
It is the first time that I record with a boy or a girl and it has been a different experience because it is all the more true, it is more true. She just sings it. It has been very special, I liked it very much and I am very grateful that there this opportunity arose.
The composing team also has hits with Pastora Soler and Becky G
Ross has 23 years of experience in the music industry, working with artists including 2012 Spanish Eurovision representative Pastora Soler. Moroccan-born ASHA, real name Hajar Sbihi, moved to Spain in 2015 and composed the multi-platinum-selling single “Booty” by C. Tangana and Becky G in 2018. The music video for the song has accumulated more than 270 million views on YouTube at the time of writing!
RTVE has yet to reveal when Soleá’s entry will be published, however, a release in early October seems likely as this was the release date for Melani Garcia’s entry “Marte” last year.
