Carrie Underwood shows off a bit of Spanish-language skill in a heart pounding new collaboration with Latin star David Bisbal.
Teaming up with the Spanish-born Latin Grammy winner for the newly released “Tears of Gold,” Underwood flashes a passionate flair of romantic energy on the track, tapping into something fans may not have seen before. It’s a meteoric pop anthem with a hip-shaking rhythm and a broken-hearted theme, all about a relationship coming apart at the seams — and it’s got a sleek, sparkling video to go with it.
The clip locks Underwood and Bisbal in an emotional dance as they circle around the black hole of a breakup, doing everything they can to resist the fallout. And it finds Underwood looking comfortable with a few lines sung in a second language.
“Pero si tú te vas / Mi vida no es vida si tú no estás / Mi último aliento te llevarás / Si tú no estás será imposible continuar,” she sings, which loosely translates to “But if you go
/ My life will be over / You’ll take my last breath / If you are not there, it will be impossible to go on.”
“Tears of Gold” was written by Paul Harris, Matt Schwartz and Cameron Forbes, and is expected to appear on Bisbal’s upcoming En Tus Planes deluxe album. For her part, Carrie Underwood has been in Christmas mode lately, having recently released her first holiday album, My Gift. Her HBO Max special My Gift: A Christmas Special from Carrie Underwood debuted on Thursday (December 3).
