Ana Mena Massiel

Un tuit de improviso: Spanish hit maker Ana Mena has published a tweet with a photograph of Massiel’s winning performance at Eurovision and has the Spanish fandom spinning.

 

From Málaga to the world, Ana Mena has been breaking the charts in both Spain and Italy for several years. She gained momentum this summer thanks to “Un beso de improviso”, her latest single with Italian rapper Rocco Hunt. 

 

Given that she’s popular in Italy, Ana Mena has become a full-on wet dream for many Spanish Eurovision fans. Ever since Benidorm Fest was announced, she has been on everybody’s wishlist.

However, Ana has kept quiet about Eurovision… until now. For months, she has been teasing a new “age”, and earlier this week, she erased everything from her social media. Her Twitter and Instagram accounts went blank, with just a black banner as the image.

First, she uploaded a photo of an old microphone. That already made some speculate whether it was related to Eurovision, since the winner is given a glass microphone.

“Something important is coming”, reads the caption. Then it was Massiel’s photograph. Does anybody know if Miss Mena is planning something in late January?

Who is Ana Mena?

Ana Mena is a Spanish singer born in Málaga. She’s 24 and started her career early, portraying child singer Marisol in ‘Marisol, la película’ in 2006. She also won Disney Channel’s My Camp Rock 2 in 2010.

She may be mostly known as a singer now, but when she was younger, she was mainly an actress. In fact, she took part in Pedro Almodóvar’s “The Skin I live In”, portraying Antonio Banderas’ daughter. We’re talking Spanish royalty here.

Her acting career was thriving, and then Ana also started making music. However, it wasn’t until 2021 that she became massively popular in Spain. Surprisingly, fame came to her in Italy earlier than in her home country, to the point that many people believe she’s an Italo-Spaniard.

Since 2018, she has been releasing a yearly summer hit in Italian and Spanish. She even took part in one of the guest nights of Sanremo 2020.

Do Ana’s tweets mean she is taking part in Benidorm Fest? Is it just a publicity stunt? May she be doing Sanremo? Will we see her in Turin – for Spain or Italy? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Looks like it might have been a false alarm, guys… She has continued to publish retro-themed posts leading to the announcement of a new single (or album, I’m not entirely sure) coming out this Thursday, which seems to be a throwback tune of sorts. Massiel and the vintage mic just happened to fit the theme, I guess.

Buuuuuuut… there has been a Benidorm Fest-related confirmation today: OT 2018 alumna Marta Sango has confirmed that she has applied.

Nobody knows her in Spain. Rare case of “success” without fame but with money… All fake marketing

Like 75% of chart hits these days are colabs or feats.

I’ve always thought she was the feature artist more for how good she looks in the music video than any real vocal ability.

“We’re talking Spanish royalty here.”

Spain literally has a royal family, and she isn’t in it.

Reading the text I think the comment was about Banderas, and more in a metaphorical sense of “royalty” as a superstar actor.

I love “a un paso de la luna” this song was played on radio in many european countries.
It would be a good move from Spain to send an artist like this in Turin. It seems she is already well known in Italy moreover if she does a duet with a famous Italian rapper, it could get many televote and jury points from the host country. Her sound is current and radio friendly and it’s always cool to see established artists already famous giving interest to Eurovision, it gives me hope, so let’s see.

the problem is that all the things people love about her colab songs, are product of autotune and she is not able to deliver live
