Billboard Latin Artist to Watch, PJ SIN SUELA, collaborates with multiple Latin GRAMMY, GRAMMY and Academy Award winner, renowned singer-songwriter Jorge Drexler, on the first single “Loco Loquito” from his debut album. The release of the single is accompanied by an animated video created by Polidélico, which tells a story that can have different meanings and that leaves to the imagination if what is happening is real or a dream. “Loco Loquito” PJ SIN SUELA x Jorge Drexler available on all digital and streaming platforms now.
About the single, PJ SIN SUELA, explained that while he studied medicine his classmates would question him on why someone who performed in front of thousands still used the crutch “eee,eeee.” Always finding inspiration in the everyday, the doctor turned rapper decided to make a song inspired on just that.
In essence “Loco Loquito” is a love story between two people who are crazy for each other but neither of them knows it. As they start the conversation their nerves get the best of them, evident by the use of the crutch “ee,eee”- “Eres ese elogio escaso en espinas” (You are that compliment, lacking thorns). Where PJ shines as a singer-songwriter is in his play on words. On this single PJ created a conversation using over 100 words all starting with the letter “E,” emulating the use of the crutch as nerves, anxiety and love take over emotions at the beginning of a relationship.
To this brilliant song comes in the incomparable Jorge Drexler, who has been an inspiration to PJ SIN SUELA. The parallels between the two are evident, both studied medicine before deciding to pursue a career in music, both singer- songwriters with a unique point of view and style, they come together for their first collaboration to create “Loco Loquito.” About their collaboration, PJ explained: “For me it was a dream come true, Jorge Drexler, is one of the artists I admire the most. His albums are my favorites. I will always be grateful to have been able to work with him on this track.”
About working with PJ on the single Jorge Drexler expressed, “My brother and colleague, the great PJ SIN SUELA, invited me to be a part of this great song. I am there as always in the clouds being a part of this beautiful audiovisual song.”
“The new single “Loco Loquito” took weeks to write, searching in my mind for words that started with the letter “E””- explained PJ SIN SUELA– “I did not want to look for words in the dictionary or make an overly complicated song. I fought against doing a single that was complex, and not simple to understand for everyone. I wanted the ear to not be aware that everything started with “E”.”
Pedro Juan Vazquez better known as PJ SIN SUELA, reveals that his favorite phrase in the song is in the first verse: “Estaría encadenado eternamente esa estructura: eLe, eMe, eNe, eÑe” (I would be chained to that structure: eLe, eMe, eNe, eÑe). He found inspiration in the fascinating comparison between love and the alphabet as something that will never change. The crutch in the song’s lyrics ceases to exists with the phrase, “la bese y al oído le dije” (I kissed her and whispered in her ear), as Jorge Drexler comes in on the chorus singing:
“Estoy Loco Loquito con tu sonrisa
es hoy mi día de suerte no lo pienses más
pues soy el loco loquito en tu sonrisa
y doy todo porque dure una eternidad.”
On the chorus violins, violas, cellos, clarinets and flutes take center stage as they accompany the unmistakable voice of Jorge Drexler, as a woman’s voice joins in, the same voice we hear at the beginning of the song. The second verse continues with the evolution of the relationship with lyrics filled with nostalgia that evoke falling in love, as PJ promises fairytales and says “Pero cierra los ojos y te llevo a Disney” (Close your eyes and I will take you to Disney).
PJ SIN SUELA continues making leaps in his career and was named by the prestigious Billboard Magazine as one of their 10 Latin Artist to Watch in 2019. PJ’s honest and sharp lyrics have made him the voice of a new generation of rappers that is breaking down stereotypes in today’s music scene. PJ SIN SUELA will perform for the first time on March 29, 2020 at Lollapalooza Chile and on April 26, 2020 at Jazz Fest in New Orleans, Louisiana. The doctor turned rapper is working on his debut album to be release later this year.
