RarriQUESO And Popkanon Create A Bi-Lingual Masterpiece With Pop Single, ‘SAVE YOUR CRY’

A refreshing pop song that includes elements of modern country, ‘Save Your Cry’, from Chicago Latin pop artist RarriQUESO and Oslo, Norway electronic artist Popkanon, is unique in that the first half is sung in English, while the second half is sung in Spanish.

The lyrics of the track take their focus on the universal theme of the struggles in life, and reference the message of Friedrich Nietzsche, “But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself”. ‘Save Your Cry’s motivation is self-preservation, positivity, and finally, letting go of all negativity.

Mixed and mastered by Jack Flash, and produced by Popkanon, the track was written by both Popkanon and RarriQUESO, the latter of whom supplied the vocals.

Following ‘Bar Colombia’, the 2023 collaboration between RarriQUESO, Popkanon, Isiah Ollie f.k.a Exclusive, and producer Stephan Smirou, ‘SAVE YOUR CRY’, retains the sunshine and upbeat rhythms that made ‘Bar Colombia’ an irresistible hit, but has a much deeper message of putting aside negative thoughts and instead embrace healing energies. The music video continues in this, with RarriQUESO approaching the camera with absolute confidence, as he sings against a plain white background. All boundaries between artist and listener are erased, and we have the feeling being right in the studio with him, taking part.

There’s hope for a third collaboration between these artists, so watch this space. In the meantime, check out the music video for ‘Save Your Cry’ below, and find out more about Popkanon online on his official website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. RarriQUESO is on Instagram.
