The singer who taught us how to cry pretty is now showing off her tears of gold. Multi-platinum country superstar Carrie Underwood has another genre to add to her discography, Latin Pop. The songstress joined Spanish pop powerhouse David Bisbal for his new bilingual single, “Tears of Gold”, available now.
Underwood and Bisbal have something besides their love of music in common – they both emerged from popular fan-voted television competitions, American Idol and Operación Triunfo. The two trade off verses and harmonize on the chorus of the song, and in a surprise to most Underwood fans, the Oklahoma native even sings a few lines in Spanish herself, proving once again that there is absolutely nothing this singer-songwriter, producer, author, entrepreneur, and mom of two can’t do.
The accompanying music video, which premiered on YouTube this morning to their combined 5 million followers, shows the epic duo dressed in gold and singing from different spots in Los Angeles.
The release is the biggest global collaboration ever across the Latin pop and country genres, and with established and devoted fan bases around the world, there is no question that it will expand the already massive international reach of both artists.
“I am very proud of our first collaboration,” said David Bisbal in a press release earlier this month. “It was very special because I love Carrie and truly admire her courage. She has shown a profound admiration for the Spanish language with her wonderful vocals on the track and I am honored to collaborate with Carrie on her first bilingual Spanish song.”
It’s a big week for Underwood, who in addition to the release of “Tears of Gold” is premiering her Christmas special on HBO Max, as well as making appearances on several day-time and late-night talk shows to promote her holiday album, My Gift.
