Queen Letizia’s rap is more like spoken word

The new ‘Leti Rap’ is not from Leticia Sabater, but from the second most important Leti in Spain. Queen Letizia has decided to perform a rap – no joke – during her speech in Madrid for World Mental Health Day, which is commemorated today, October 10.

Using some verses from El Chojín, belonging to her song ‘No es egoísimo’, a collaboration with Rozalén published just a month ago, the queen of Spain (with forgiveness from Amaia Romero) has asked for more investment in mental health and has indicated So, if your attempt at rap causes people to talk about the importance of taking care of your mental health, welcome. What some do is imagine a collaboration with Bizarrapclear.

«It occurs to me that if this afternoon or morning some media headlines “the queen raps for mental health”, it would be good if we once again tried to draw attention to something so important. And so serious,” declared the number 1 fan of La Bien Querida. Affecting the tone, Letizia has “rapped” rhymes like “I do what I can, I get to what I get to and it’s not healthy that I demand so much of myself; The anger and bad faces hurt when I fail at something, although her rap, somewhat restrained, self-conscious, shy, has leaned more towards the spoken word. Queen Letizia may be a fan of Kae Tempest, like Pedro Sánchez.

Of course, it would make more sense for Letizia to be a follower of one of the most relevant recited verse projects of the moment in Spain, Laura Sam and Juan Escribano, first because in fact their lyrics are written in Spanish, and second because they are also involved with the cause of mental health. Just today, the duo releases ‘Esmog’. The song, citing the official press release, “was born from discontent and doubts about the situation of public health in relation to mental health, and specifically was inspired by a wave of news that showed a very harsh reality: the number of people “who had committed suicide because they had not been able to access a quality public therapeutic service.”

The authors of ‘The Voice Against’ deliver a turbulent song, which talks about “a suicidal mental state”, “loneliness in psychiatric hospitals” or living a “life on pills”. The title ‘Smog’ has “a meaning directly related to the reality being described; “It is that cloud of fog and dust that covers everything, and that in this case represents all those thoughts that are sometimes difficult to get rid of in order to think clearly.”
