Brequette didn’t end up catching a flight to Denmark but the Spanish MQVAE runner up hasn’t been taking it easy. She was the only artist to score a Wiwi Jury rating above 9 in 2014, so we’re thrilled to hear that she has been working hard on her debut album. The first single from the collection, “Puzzle Together”, has just been released. Close your eyes and take it all in.
Complete with a 90’s rhythm-and-blues melody and elements of funk and soul, this is a major departure from “Más”, the big ballad she sang at MQVAE. She keeps it completely in English (her native language), and ditches the afro in favour of a Mariya Yaremchuk style hat. You can hear a Gaitana-like growl in her voice, and although the chorus is repetitive, it doesn’t take away from the song too much. We can just imagine this being used as a soundtrack to a movie montage. LOVE!
