Raffaella Carrá left us in 2021. And it is not a cliché to say that her music will accompany us forever. Right now the singer is in the news because a couple of books have been published about her. One in the prestigious Blackie Books publishing house. And another in the prestigious Dos Bigotes publishing house.

But above all because he is starring in one of the virals of the moment, and no thanks to Pedro Sánchez (the president, one of the authors of these books is called Pedro Ángel Sánchez). Before the Socialist Youth tried to appropriate the song to ask the General Secretary of the PSOE not to resign as President of the Government, ‘Pedro’ had already spent 2 weeks on the official singles chart in Spain. ‘Pedro’ by Raffaella Carrá is currently top 20 in our country, thanks to a meme.

The origin of the viral is the Russian tiktoker Fleksa30, who shared a montage of his pet Ginger, based on techno. Somehow the network has renamed him Pedro. DJ Jaxomy & Agatino Romero are responsible for adding the techno base to ‘Pedro’, in line with the original meme. The remix has been officially uploaded to streaming platforms after Carrà’s heirs gave their approval. Or perhaps its authors or editorial managers, among them the Spaniard Luis Gómez-Escolar, also author of ‘Fiesta’ by la Carrà, ‘Sálvame’ by Bibiana Fernández, ‘Agapimú’ by Ana Belén and several of Miguel Bosé’s first hits ( ‘Linda’) and Ricky Martin (‘María’, ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’). I want to be this person’s bank account.

The curious thing is that neither Spain nor Italy are being fundamental in the development of this success. The countries that supported Raffaella Carrá the most in life are being more timid in her enthusiasm for ‘Pedro’, perhaps because we already knew that story of a tourist who allows herself to be accompanied by a “not very decent” man named that way.

The surprising thing is that we currently find the remix of ‘Pedro’ in position 4 on Spotify Germany, in position 8 in Holland, in position 11 in Poland or in position 17 in Sweden. France, Mexico and Australia are also succumbing to the new remix of ‘Pedro’. In this way, we find ‘Pedro’ in the top 30 of Spotify Global, adding 60 million streams, plus 2 new ones daily. Triple Raffaella Carrá’s greatest historical success.

Traditionally, Raffaella Carrá’s music had not crossed so many borders. Only ‘Do It Do It Again’ had reached number 9 in 1978 in the Kingdom. Now, this remix is ​​at number 67 on the official UK charts, and rising. Massive Spotify playlists like Dance Party, Hits or Mint have embraced it. The joke seems to have not reached its peak and you don’t have to be a lynx to realize that it is going to be one of the songs of the summer, at least in Europe.
