Carlos Rivera Reveals the Special Meaning Behind His 5 Favorite Tracks From 'Guerra'
Carlos Rivera really pours his heart out on his new album Guerra, penning his most personal songs yet.
With his 2018 production making the rounds, the Mexican crooner sat down with Billboard to reveal his five favorite tracks -- although really, they’re all his favorite songs.
“I’m always going to go with the most melodic songs because they represent something sensible,” he says.
Check out his favorite tracks from Guerra below.
“La Luna del Cielo”
This is my number one favorite song, because it’s a song I wrote for my grandmother before [she] passed away. It’s a goodbye song.
This song can go two different ways. It’s a song that talks about that feeling of loving someone before even meeting them. You can dedicate it to your children or when you finally find the love of your life, that person who’s been somewhere in the world and you finally found each other.
“Seria Mas Facil”
This song is special because it’s about a relationship that ends even if the two people still love each other. It doesn’t matter what happens or how much you love each other, it’s easier to just hate each other. This song is for those people who are going through this, it’s going to hit home real hard.
“Amo Mi Locura”
I wrote this song after I received an award. I was called crazy because I wanted to be a singer and in my speech, I expressed that if everything I’m living today is because I’m crazy, then bless my craziness. The song basically says that you’re the only one who can make your own decisions.
This is the first single, and it’s special because I want everything that I’m living in this moment to be worth it, to leave a footprint, to be remembered. This song talks about living your life intensely and that life is a journey that should be enjoyed without rush.
