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
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
Rodriguez's lovers plea is slightly altered:
Hola desde el más allá
Escúchame antes de colgar
Solo quisiera pedirte perdón
Y aunque no te importo, yo sigo aquí recordando tu amor
Which translates, roughly, to:
Hello from way over there,
listen to me before hanging up,
I just wanted to ask for forgiveness,
and although I don't matter to you, I still remember your love
Rodriguez is no stranger to redoing hit songs. She's also done a Spanglish version of Drake's "Hotline Bling."
