She sang “SloMo” at Eurovision 2022 and ever since then there have been calls for mo, mo, mo from Chanel. And now, it’s here: La Mami is releasing new music!

With an album in the works, and a new song about to be released, Chanel has announced that she’s becoming a Disney girl. 

Chanel will tackle “La estrella azul”, or “When You Wish Upon a Star” in English.

Fans of the Disney classic will remember that the song is performed when Geppetto asks to turn Pinocchio into a real boy. At this point, a star takes the form of a Blue Fairy, and grants the wish. It’s considered the unofficial Disney theme tune and is used in major campaigns like commercials for Disney World in the United States.

It doesn’t really sound like a song you’d get to do the suelo-lo-lo-lo to, but hey, you never know!

The song drops on Thursday, along with the music video. Excited for it? Well, certainly Chanel is!

“The fact that Disney called me to sing such a deep song that everybody knows felt like an amazing challenge and I was so excited about it. I handled it with a lot of respect”, she said. 

Chanel is working on her new album

Wearing a stunning black jumpsuit with white embellishments, Chanel entered the El Hormiguero stage on Monday as the first guest of the season. That’s huge, considering it’s Spain’s most popular show on prime time TV.

While there was no date for the new single, she confirmed it’s already finished. As for the album, she used a very Spanish saying: “Las cosas de palacio van despacio”, which roughly translates as “It all takes time” (but the metaphor includes a palace, because you know Spanish idioms are always extra).

Chanel promised her new material is going to be worth it. And gurl, if it’s close in anyway to her performance at the Coca Cola Music Experience, it’s going to be mental!

Are you excited for Chanel’s new music? How do you picture her new single? Can she match SloMo? Let us know in the comment section below!

She has such a beautiful voice, i really dont understand why people underestimate her singing ability just because she is primarily a dancer. I would go as far as to say she had one of the best voices of this years eurovision

She said that one song is totally ready… and that she believes it is similar to SloMo (she wasn’t sure about it though haha, but I guess it involves dancing for sure). She couldn’t give a release date yet, but very soon, she said.

I always find it interesting when Eurovision artists become featured singers in Disney movies. There are some interesting videos on YT which compiles a lot of them. For example, Ruth Jacott who represented the Netherlands in 1993 is the Dutch voice of Mama Odie in the Princess And The Frog

She is actually the third Spanish person being in Eurovision and in a Disney song, the other two are: Gisela (representing Andorra in 2008 and in the back voices of Rosa, for Spain, in 2002) and Edurne (Spain, 2015).

Of note is that Gisela was among the international voices of Elsa that performed “Into the Unknown” from Frozen II at the 92nd Academy Awards in February 2020.

I’ve checked the numbers again and she’s actually the fourth: Blas Cantó (Spain 2020 and 2021) sang in the Spanish version of Wreck-It Ralph‘s “When Can I See You Again?” (“¿Cuándo te volveré a ver?”) as part of Auryn back in 2012.

The only difference in that case is that Disney wasn’t hiring an Eurovision ex-participant by then, as in the rest of the cases.

Correct. Auryn had entered Spain’s national final the prior year, however.

Ruth Jacott also voiced Abuela Alma Madrigal from Encanto. 🙂

Yes, a lot of Eurovision singers have dubbed for Disney and other animated films in general. Dreamworks movies have a few Eurovision alumni dubbing too–Alexander Rybak dubbed Hiccup for the Norwegian How to Train Your Dragon dubs and I think Lena voiced Poppy for the German dub of the Trolls movies.
