Leer en español: Lollapalooza: Una playlist para disfrutar del mega evento

Lollapalooza is back. It is one of the main music festivals, which originated in the United States and, subsequently, has had a great reach in Latin America. This 2022, it returns after two years of suspension due to the health emergency that has affected the entire world.

For this year's edition, Brazil, Argentina and Chile will be able to enjoy this mega event during the month of March. For this reason, we present you with a playlist, designed by our team, of the best songs of the main artists that will be presented on the different stages of each country.

"You" Miley Cyrus

The singer, songwriter, and actress, who gained worldwide recognition for her leading role in the American youth series Hannah Montana, has received recognition of great importance throughout her career, such as her inclusion in the list designed by the prestigious Billboard magazine (2019) as one of the best artists of all time.

"You" is his most recent single, which premiered last New Year's Eve, but has not yet appeared on the main digital platforms. In it, Miley Cyrus sings a kind of very powerful ballad where she addresses a relationship that she wants to be eternal but that may not be without leaving behind some scars from the past. A song that had a great reception from his followers and followers.

"Ones" C. Tangana

Born in Madrid, C. Tangana is a rapper who has stood out throughout his career for dealing with various musical styles such as reggaeton, Latin pop, and new flamenco. Likewise, he is recognized in our continent for the multiple Latin Grammys he has won in recent years and the remixes he has done with Latin artists.

"Ontas" is a contraction of the Mexican origin of the question where are you? At the time it went viral through a meme where precisely that expression was used to refer to an informal sex proposal. C. Tangana took advantage of that boom in 2019 and premiered a song that to date has accumulated more than 9 million views on YouTube.

"Parte de mi" Nicki Nicole

Nicki Nicole is one of the artists of Argentina with the greatest projection. At just 21 years old, she is the youngest singer on this list. Such has been his impact that to date he has collaborated with artists such as Rauw Alejandro, Bizarrap, Becky G, Mon Laferte, and Nathy Peluso.

"Parte de mí" is the singer-songwriter's second studio album and is also the name of one of the main singles she has released in her prolific career. He dedicates it to a person who marked his life forever and who is no longer part of his plans. It stands out compared to other songs of its authorship because it is a ballad, distancing itself from the trap and reggaeton that she usually offers in its lyrics and rhythms.

"Animals" Martin Garrix

The Dutch Martin Garrix is one of the attractions of this new edition of Lollapalooza. The DJ born in the Netherlands is considered one of the main producers in the world. For 3 consecutive years (2016-2017-2018) he was chosen by DJ Magazine as the best DJ in the world , neither more nor less.

With "Animals" he became popular worldwide. It is a single that was released nine years ago and that allowed Garrix to reach number 1 on the charts in countries such as Belgium and the United Kingdom. This instrumental piece currently has more than a billion views on YouTube and without a doubt marked a before and after in the life of this 25-year-old artist.

"Para caller tus penas" Cami

Chilean Camila Gallardo, better known as Cami, leaped to music after her participation in the talent show The Voice in 2015. In the Chilean edition, Cami won second place with Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi as coach. Since then, she has released two albums and has been nominated for a Latin Grammy and a Grammy.

"Pa callar tus penas" is part of his first album and one of his most recognized hits by his fans. Both in the lyrics of the song and in the music video you can see a couple where both come from love breakups and who try to heal their wounds in order to enter into a new relationship. Along with "Abrázame", "Querida Rosa", "Funeral" and "Aquí soy", it is one of his main songs.

"Sing me to sleep" Alan Walker

The 24-year-old Norwegian Alan Walker is another DJ on this list and one of the most striking numbers at Lollapalooza. He is one of the best DJs today and, as a curious fact, in each presentation, he covers his face under a hood and with a face mask, which differentiates him from other artists.

"Sing me to sleep" is one of its main themes. Its success is so great that to date it has accumulated more than 600 million views on YouTube and more than 250 million on Spotify. It is a song to heartbreak, oblivion, and the irremediable memory of a relationship that is over and where there is no turning back.
