Maná, "Lluvia al Corazon"

"Lluvia al Corazón," Maná's latest single that has topped Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart, enshrines the Mexican rock band's signature sound from beginning to end. The song starts off with Fher Olvera's characteristically husky voice singing over a clean guitar riff that lays down the chords on top of a basic four-on-the-floor drum loop. The verse's chord progression and overall mood are dark and cold, but things start livening up by the time Alex Gonzalez comes in with a punchy backbeat groove on the second verse. While the title, which translates to "Rain to the Heart," may indicate a sadder song, the bright, powerful energy and positive lyrics in the chorus reveal an interesting twist from the group's initial tone. The contrasting elements of "Lluvia al Corazón" nicely coincide with the title of Maná's upcoming album, "Drama y Luz" (Drama and Light).
