Adele's 'Hello' Has a Spanglish Version You Need to Hear
By now, the chorus to Adele's hit single "Hello" is probably as familiar to some people as their own name — the song is just shy of 600 million views on YouTube, and Adele's album 25 has been No. 1 on the Billboard charts for two weeks straight.
But you've never heard it like this before. While Britney Spears gave us a dance tribute to the song, former American Idol contestant Karen Rodriguez gave the track a Spanglish re-imagining.
The lyrics are extremely faithful to Adele's original. Where Adele pleas:
Hello from the outside
Rodriguez's lovers plea is slightly altered:
Hola desde el más allá
Which translates, roughly, to:
Hello from way over there,
Rodriguez is no stranger to redoing hit songs. She's also done a Spanglish version of Drake's "Hotline Bling."
