Leiva’s second family: This is what his collaboration ‘You’re treating me badly’ with Jokers sounds like

Music news

There is the family that one has and the family that one chooses. AND Leiva The second one is getting bigger and bigger. The Madrid musician has just presented with the group Jokers one of those collaborations in which he has put his heart and soul in equal parts.

And it’s not me who says it but the artist himself who not only got on stage at the Gran Rex Theater of Buenos Aires to play the song you’re treating me bad with them but has presented and promoted it in a delicious way on social networks.

“Playing “You are treating me badly” with my brothers the @guasones at the @teatro_granrex. Today this song is published, the first single from their new album “Acústico Gran Rex Vol.2”. They are like a family to me, since “I started in Argentina, they took care of me and helped me with everything. I will always be there for you. I love you guys.” He published the one from Alameda de Osuna on his official Instagram account.

A very special moment not only for the Spanish interpreter but also for the Argentine formation from La Plata. “A little more than a decade has passed since that first acoustic experience where the Argentine band Guasones performed live versions of many of their most emblematic songs to take them to another level, assuming the risk and making it clear that the songs, beyond having entered the unconscious group of their audience could sound different too” can be read in the press release for the launch.

And for the occasion they had the invaluable collaboration of Leiva who seems to have found a second musical home on his travels through Mexico and Argentina. A new collaboration that mitigates the wait until the arrival of her highly anticipated new musical project.

And for Jokers fans, also the end of a long wait: “10 years later, they repeated that experience before 2 Gran Rex theaters in Buenos Aires, totally sold out (November 17 and 18, 2023). From those shows, comes a preview: “You are treating me badly”, with the collaboration of Leiva who starts singing alone, almost telling it as a perfect story to which the rest of the Jokers later join in. A version that made the audience present sing, reflect and be excited until the end.”
