Axelle ๐Ÿ”ด Red ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ

๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช singer Axelle Red released the album Con solo pensarlo, which contains ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ versions of some of her ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท songs: the evergreen Sensualitรฉ (Sensualidad) and the ever beautiful Je t’attends (Te esperรฉ) and many more to discover.

Multilingual, my all time favourite, responsible for my best concert ever (Rome, Stadio Olimpico, 2016) but Laura Pausini is also the first ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น female artist to win a Grammy Award ๐Ÿ†, 2021 winner of a Golden Globe and in her home country known as La regina ๐Ÿ‘‘ della musica italiana.

Almost all her songs exist in an Italian and Spanish version, some in Brazilian Portuguese. Too many to mention, but I won’t let you go without a short trilingual overview.

Flag of Italy - OriginalFlag of Spain - OriginalFlag of Brazil - Original
Due innamorati come noiDos enamoradosApaixonados como nรณs
Incancellabile *InolvidableInesquecivel
Invece noEn cambio noAgora nรฃo
Le cose che viviLas cosas que vivesTudo o que eu vivo
Nel primo sguardoA simple vistaNo primeiro olhar
* second song at my wedding

Her latest song Io sรฌ (Seen) is nominated for an Oscar and more importantly a multilingual feat, released in 6 versions, 5 languages ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and the soundtrack of La vita davanti a sรฉ (The Life Ahead) casting Sophia Loren.

Many ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น singers soon followed in her footsteps and released Spanish songs and albums; Nek, Tiziano Ferro and Alessandra Amoroso being the most famous and successful ones. Why stop in the land of ๐Ÿ• and ๐Ÿ if with slightly adapting the song gives you access to the ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ speaking world?

Queen ๐Ÿ‘‘ Cรฉline Dion ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

The woman our Google ๐Ÿก wakes us up with on weekdays, sometimes in ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท, sometimes in ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง. Some songs you available in fish and chips version as well as pain, vin et boursin:

  • If That’s What It Takes – Por Que Tu M’Aimes Encore
  • Have A Heart – Partout Je Te Vois
  • Fly – Vole
  • Let Your Heart Decide – Tous Les Secret
  • I don’t know – Je sais pas
  • Et je t’aime encore (same title for both versions)

She has a similar voice in my opinion and like Cรฉline she has ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ citizenship (next to ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช) and while singing mostly in ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Lara Fabian‘s biggest succes was I Will Love Again ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, also released in ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ as Otro Amor Vendrรก.

Let’s dance with J.Lo ๐Ÿ•บ, Enrique ๐Ÿ’ƒ, Shakira ๐Ÿ‘ฏ and Mika ๐Ÿฉฐ!

Saying that the combination ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง is popular is the understatement of this and the former century.

As a teenager I had Jennifer Lopez‘s first CD (On the 6) and ๐ŸŽค and ๐Ÿ•บto the lyrics of Waiting for Tonight (I did turn of the lights and closed the curtains first), but when I reached the ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ version on the ๐Ÿ’ฟ (Una noche mรกs) I had to limit my lip-sincying to the title (I only started stuyding ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ at the age of 33). But whenever, wherever I hear it now I’m proud to say I know the lyrics. ยกOlรฉ!

Talking about Whenever, Wherever Shakira sang Suerte to the same lyrics and to celebrate the FIFA World Cup 2010 โšฝ Waka Waka (Esto es Africa) became Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).

Enrique Iglesias tried to Escape in ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง y intentรณ Escapar en ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ, but dancing was in both languages Bailamos.

Multilingual Mika turned Staring at the Sun ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง into Tant Que J’ai Le Soleil ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท (or the other way around) and Elle M’a Dit ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท became creatively Emily ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง.

So now, voulez-vous danser ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿฉฐ avec moi?
