Spain’s Levi Díaz is nicknamed “the boy with the eternal smile”. The Spanish representative at Junior Eurovision 2021 has translated that positivity into his song “Reír“, with which he wants to start a revolution: making Europe happy again.

Spain in Junior Eurovision 2021: Levi Díaz with “Reír”

Spain has made a 180º turn from the longing and emotion of its Eurovision 2021 entry “Voy a quedarme”. Its Junior Eurovision is all about having fun, dancing, singing and, above all, laughing. That’s what “Reír” means – to laugh or to smile.

Levi Díaz was announced as Spain’s singer for Junior Eurovision 2021 in September. He’s the reigning The Voice Kids champion. During the TV talent show, he was known for his ability to sing heartfelt songs and power-ballads. His winning number was a rendition of The Greatest Showman’sNever Enough“. His version of Sia’s “Alive” was also quite popular.

What do the “Reír” lyrics mean?

“Reír” wants to trigger a revolution across Europe. But fear not, this is not a “Hatrid mun sigra” scenario: Spain’s Junior Eurovision entry is all about making everyone let loose and feel happy.

During the song, Levi sings to the rhythm of many instruments from across the globe. As the song progresses, it adds more and more sounds in a musical “crescendo” that ends with Levi calling everyone to join him in the revolution.

“All together we will create a new world full of colours, a rollercoaster of emotions”, “Let’s go, you and me, we can make it if you believe that dreams will come true”, are some of the lyrics of “Reír”, which you can read below.

“Reír” lyrics — Levi Díaz (Spain JESC 2021)

Spanish text

Ven, vamos hacia aquel lugar
Donde nace un nuevo sol
Y se iluminan nuestros sueños

Ven nuestras voces se unirán
Nuestras manos forjarán
Cristalino un mundo nuevo
¡Hey! ¡Tú!

Ya no sientas miedo
Si aún duele por dentro
Todo pasa y pasará
¡Vamos!
Tómame la mano
Éste el momento
¡Hoy!

Vamos a reír y bailar
Hasta amanecer
Vamos que hoy es hoy
Y no regresa

Volver a empezar
se puede lograr
Deja que suceda
Éste es el momento
Y la revolución

¡Vamos! Tú y yo
Se puede alcanzar
Si tú crees que los sueños
Se hacen realidad
Vamos a brillar
Es hora de empezar
Vamos a gritar ¡Eh!
Esta es la revolución

Ven vamos hacia aquel lugar
Donde crece la amistad
Y se enciende la Esperanza

¡Hey! ¡Tú!

Ya no sientas miedo
Si aún duele por dentro
Todo pasa y pasará
¡Vamos!
Tómame la mano
Éste el momento
¡Hoy!

Vamos a reír y bailar
Hasta amanecer
Vamos que hoy es hoy
Y no regresa
Volver a empezar
Se puede lograr
Vamos a juntos a crear
Un mundo nuevo lleno de colores
Una montaña rusa de emociones

Abre el alma y vuela
El corazón se eleva
Abre las ventanas
A una vida nueva
Éste es el momento
De la revolución

¡Vamos! Tú y yo
Se puede alcanzar
Si tú crees que los sueños
Se hacen realidad
Vamos a brillar
Es hora de empezar
Vamos a gritar ¡Eh!
Esta es la revolución

English translation

Come, let’s go to that place
Where a new Sun is born
And our dreams light up

Come, our voices will join
Our hands will forge
A new and crystalline world
Hey! You!

Fear no more
If it still hurts inside
Everything passes and it will pass
Come on!
Take my hand
This is the moment
Today!

We’re going to laugh and dance
Until the break of day
Come on, today is today
And it won’t come back

To start again
We can make it
Let it happen
This is the moment
And the revolution

Come on! You and me
We can make it
If you believe that dreams
Do come true
Let’s shine
It’s time to start
Let’s shout, eh!
This is the revolution

Let’s go to that place
Where friendship grows
And hope lights up

Hey! You!

Fear no more
If it still hurts inside
Everything passes and it will pass
Come on!
Take my hand
This is the moment
Today!

Let’s laugh and dance
Until the break of day
Come on, today is today
And it won’t be back
To begin again
We can make it
Let’s create together
A new world full of colours
A rollercoaster of emotions

Open your soul and fly
The heart elevates
Open the windows
To a new life
This is the moment
Of the revolution

Come on! You and me
We can make it
If you believe that dreams
Do come true
Let’s shine
It’s time to start
Let’s shout, eh!
This is the revolution

All the songs are good in their own way so far, they have all equal chances cause they are all talented enough for that, that’s why I think there are not better than others, it’s the main thing for children 😉

Don’t be euphemistic. We all know not every single song can win, we know the chances they’ve got and we all can have an opinion as long as it’s respectful and polite, but realistic.

Man we are talking about Jesc, of course every single song can still win, why not? Why some more than others? Jesc is largely more unpredictable than Esc so that’s why they have all their chances and a good staging and/ or a very good vocal perf can change everything the d-day, I’m not euphemistic but realistic on that.

Mate, are you offended because of a stranger’s opinion?

Nope I just think about Levi reading this article about him and seeing that people are saying there’s better than him so clearly that he have less chances than others for ex, it’s pretty discouraging for somebody who has only 13 years old and who is on the point to compete, no? Moreover when it’s wrong, it’s not cool for children that’s all, so yeah I’m offended for that, I’m no more a child so me personally the stranger’s opinions I don’t care, the childs are more vulnerable and can be touched more easily and quickly it’s not so hard… Read more »

Lol, Poland is so overrated. Even Rafal had a better song than this girl.

Great entry as always with Spain in jesc and among my favourites of this year for the trophy.! Good luck Levi, good luck Spain!
I love the fact that you want and try to developp a new festival used for your esc song selection but after all, all you need is just to have the same approach and put heart in the esc as you do for the jesc and you will be successful in the main contest (or we could say in “the adult contest” for Robyn 😉 )

i’ve loved spain’s last entries but this one falls flat for me and sounds generic and like a downgrade considering what spain has sent before. if marte wasn’t able to win, i don’t think this will either

Man, Polish fans really don’t like people suggesting a country other than theirs could win, do they?

Do you get special notifications with locations of people that downvote your comments? Maybe some people do because you’re accusing them of being nasty?

They are potential winners imo too but they are not the only ones. It’s risky to talk about a France victory under an article about Spain in jesc as it would be under an article about Poland in jesc too. There are misplaced rivalries and childishness that shouldn’t exist, moreover when those reactions are due just because Valentina won last year. Look at your downvotes …. sad

Yeah I agree and I’m the first against that but it’s the sad reality, what we can do against these trolls who have such a bad spirit that doesn’t reflect the real esc spirit at all, friendships, respect, fairplay are unknown words for them but hatred and toxicity they know that very well… the positive thing is they are only a very very small minority but more active than the others that’s why we see this toxicity everywhere, even here as you can see… so when you say “guys”, don’t put me with them, I have nothing to do with… Read more »

Spain is definitely a contender this year. It’s remarkable how much more consistent they are than they’ve been at the adult contest.

Wonder if a win would do for them what it did for France in terms of being more successful at the adult contest.
