“Quevedo: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” by Bizarrap and Quevedo
“Quevedo: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” is a love song with a materialistic slant. The vocalist, Quevedo, is smitten by this lady who is more or less the main subject of this track.
With him being a contemporary Latin artist, of course they first meet at a club, where he is stricken by her physical beauty. Also, she may be rich, or at least one of them is a rockin’ a “maroon Mercedes” which matches well with the dress she’s wearing on a particular date they embark on, which may be their first.
Fun in Argentina
The setting of this interaction is in Argentina, which we know since homegirl proceeds to give Quevedo a tour of Buenos Aires. And whereas we may not know how much money he has, the rapper does drop enough clues pointing to the fact that he isn’t slacking financially, such as volunteering to take the apple of his eye to the Spanish colony – if you will – of the Canary Islands, which is in fact a tourist destination.
He also implies she does not have to return. This is because their relationship, in his eyes, has the potential to be a permanent one.
Since these are hip Spanish-speaking artists we’re referring to here, in addition to the references to the club scene there are also allusions to the romance between the vocalist and this lady also being sexual. But you have to give it to Quevedo that on this song, he doesn’t delve graphically into the latter as many of his contemporaries would.
A Love Song
Also, let it be known that this is in fact love, not lust, song, as in the narrator doing a convincing job of illustrating that even if his initial attraction to this lady was carnally-based, he has quickly developed very-strong feelings for her, to the point where he’s apparently contemplating a lifelong relationship. So most simply put, this is a song about a rich guy from Spain falling in love with an Argentine beauty.
