The current trend in the world of bachata music is to remake popular songs from the 1960s-1980s and today we bring you the latest example, which is Jeyro’s version of “Say You, Say Me” by Lionel Richie. In terms of the music, both versions start out with the same romantic melody, but then the bachata version spins off into the traditional percussive rustle that has come to define the genre. We first heard Jeyro with his song “Mi Mundo,” and this second song is a positive step forward from a promising beginning to his career.
Jeyro has a smooth voice with a vibrato that knows how to hover at important moments, freezing time like a dunk from an Air Jordan commercial. His Spanglish lyrics stay true to the original and the passion is present, which is truly the element that separates your everyday bachata artist from the artists with potential. Talent like this knows no boundaries.
