She’s one of Spain’s biggest music stars and a proper Eurovision diva. She finished fifth on the UK’s X Factor, tenth at Eurovision 2014 and first on Tu Cara Me Suena. Now firmly established and with an increasingly global fan base, Ruth Lorenzo is ready for a new chapter. Her latest single “Good Girls Don’t Lie” is pure Lorenzo – from rock to pop, it brings the house down!
Ruth Lorenzo – “Good Girls Don’t Lie”
“I always told you that the good girls don’t lie…” and, again, Ruth doesn’t disappoint either.
The Spanish songstress’ latest offering is an absolute banger. From the first note to the last, she plays with folk, pop and rock, all layered over a strong up-tempo beat that builds to seventh heaven. As ever her voice — part grit, part soul, pure power — is the anchor of it all.
Ruth attracted attention in late September when she teased her upcoming music. She explained the meaning behind “Good Girls Don’t Lie” on social media:
“Oh honey, you can’t break a broken heart. You can’t steal a stolen soul. You know, my daddy took it with him when he left. So now it can’t be yours. And I will do as mamma said ‘be a good girl, always tell the truth’ so baby you should run. Don’t dare to stay cause I’m not good to you”
Forewarned is forearmed
She sings about love — but not a happy one. With an empowering but dark message, Ruth follows a famous Spanish refrain ” el que avisa no es traidor” (forewarned is forearmed), and she’s warning him: “I thought I told you, so don’t say I didn’t warn you”.
Ruth Lorenzo’s new album, Loveaholic
#GGDL is the official first single off Ruth’s upcoming studio album, Loveaholic. And it’s already a hit. Less than 40 minutes after it was released, “Good Girls Don’t Lie” went to #1 on iTunes Spain — bravísima!
#GGDL is a great tease of Ruth’s next album, but it looks like we will have to wait until 2018 for it to drop. However, some lucky people have already had the pleasure of hearing it in its entirety.
Xavi Martínez — one of the jurors during Objetivo Eurovision 2017 — has amazing words. “Her new project is going to bring more rock, more stunning productions,” he said. “I listened to it and it’s wonderful.”
Xavi also gave Ruth’s fans a nice treat by premiering Ruth’s new single on his radio station — Los 40 principales — a day before the official release. He described her new hit as an “acceptance and a leap”.
Ruth Lorenzo on the special performance on Tu Cara Me Suena
After winning Tu Cara Me Suena (Your Face Sounds Familiar), Ruth has been busy working on Loveaholic. But she could not miss the invitation to appear in the opening show for this year’s series.
This performance was special as it reunited the winners of all the editions of Tu Cara Me Suena. Ruth performed as Janis Joplin and delivered a stellar performance!
