Cee x SVNTY6 – AmaliiiaRodrigues
During her 50 year career, singer Amalia Rodrigues was the Rihanna of Portugal. She helped popularize fado music worldwide, and essentially single handedly put the genre on the map.
The second single from Cee and SVNTY6’s collaborative EP, “Be Better”, samples Ms. Rodrigues’ classic “O Xaile de Minha Mãe”, a song Cee discovered a decade back during Spanish lessons. He had sent the song to around ten different producers over the years, and only SVNTY6 had been able to flip it right.
The haunting minor keys of “AmaliiiaRodrigues” set off a melancholic and moody expedition, something quite unusual for Cee, where he delves into his own psyche in third person, uncovering his fears, worries and problems in both his life and passion.
