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!
