Back in 2014, she promised to come back in the lyrics of her song “Más (Run)”.
And on Saturday Spanish-South African starlet Brequette Cassie reminded us of that fact by publicly revealing “No Enemy” — one of the three entries she submitted to RTVE for Objetivo Eurovisión, Spain’s national selection.
Brequette Cassie – “No enemy”
“No Enemy” begins with a xylophone, creating a seriously mysterious and inviting opening. The song gives Brequette plenty of space to show off her fierce vocals. And her unique sound works well with the fierce lyrics about about self-empowerment and rising above adversities.
Unfortunately the rest of the song fails to live up to the opening, and the repetition of Ayo! isn’t really working for us. Our wiwibloggers Deban and William listened to the song once and reacted immediately. As you can see below, the “Más” hype and adulation doesn’t carry through to this…
Brequette’s entry for 2017 has a fantastic team behind it. Barei and her boyfriend Rubén Villanueva composed the track, and it’s definitely modern and on-trend. You can feel some strong “Say yay!” vibes. But that’s the problem — it’s just vibes of a banger, rather than an actual banger. We expected “más, más, más” from them. Lounge music is for lounging, and it puts us to sleep.
Submission period ends tomorrow
Brequette is a one of the many singers who is taking part in Spain’s Eurocasting. As of November 17, the broadcaster had received 135 songs. We anticipate that the number has swelled significantly since then.
After the submission period closes tomorrow, the broadcaster will cut the entries to just 30, and these songs will then take part in an internet selection. It is not clear yet when the entries will be out, but many artists have already confirmed their participation.
What’s your take on the song? Do you think that Brequette’s song is better than “Más”? Do you think Brequette will qualify for the live final? Tell us in the comment section below!
