In The Spotlight

Barei – “You Number One”

This Spanish singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist was born as Bárbara Reyzábal González-Aller in Madrid. She released her debut album “Billete Para No Volver” in 2011 but, influenced by British and American pop, switched to singing in English on her second album “Throw The Dice”. She went on to open for Lenny Kravitz and representing Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016.

The title-track of her recently released third album is a cheerful and uplifting single radiating confidence and self-belief. It’s contemporary pop with a Mediterranean edge, supplied by airy, playful guitar plucks and cheeky finger snaps. A modern rhythm accompanies her unique talk-sing style vocals and the choral harmonies, making it a catchy and encouraging song with summer-hit potential.
