Miguel and Lafourcade sound like they were made to sing together.
If you’re excited about the forthcoming Día de los Muertos-themed movie “Coco” by Disney/Pixar, here’s one more thing to get you hyped for its release. Disney/Pixar just released a lyric video for a pop version of “Remember Me” featuring Miguel and Mexican pop star Natalia Lafourcade. The song switches back and forth from English to Spanish and you’ll even get to hear Miguel throw in a Spanish word in there if you pay attention. “Coco” is the story of a young aspiring musician named Miguel Rivera who finds himself in the Land of the Dead during Día de los Muertos. The song “Remember Me” is the signature theme of Ernesto de la Cruz, the legendary Mexican singer who is idolized by Miguel Rivera. This version will be available on the “Coco” soundtrack but you may not hear it in the movie. The original version is a bolero-inspired song sung by actor Benjamin Bratt, the voice of Ernesto de la Cruz in “Coco.”
