Global superstar Becky G released her cover of “Bella Ciao” along with a music video honoring the Netflix show Money Heist, which recently reached its finale.
Becky Gives “Bella Ciao” Her Own Twist
“Bella Ciao” is an Italian protest folk song from the late 19th century, and the song’s connection to the Spanish heist series (originally titled La Casa de Papel) is because “the Professor’s whole life revolved around one idea… resistance,” according to an official statement. In a new extended version, released under Kemosabe/RCA Records, Becky G not only gives the song an uptempo reggaeton beat; but also flaunts her Italian singing skills.
As a fan of the show, Becky was super excited to partner with Netflix on her cover of “Bella Ciao,” and even shared on social media how honored she was to be a part of the iconic show. The music video, which is directed by Megan Gamez; pays tribute to the series by featuring its iconic red jumpsuit, Salvador Dali mask, and bars of gold from the Bank of Spain.
Becky shared, “I have always loved ‘La Casa de Papel’ (‘Money Heist’); and the way this show connected with millions of people across the world. “Bella Ciao” is an iconic song and marks an important moment in the series; so being asked to reimagine it and be a part of the Casa de Papel world is truly an honor. From recording the song to shooting the video, I hope everyone enjoys this cover as much as I do!”
