With only a few weeks prior her return to Viña Del Mar Festival, Francisca Valenzuela releases a song full of content and romanticism, always under a unique prism and unique lyrics. “Flotando” is the release that today Francisca Valenzuela describes as: “A romantic piano ballad, about the moment you finally let go, freely fall in love and showing yourself as you are. It’s about the sweetness, joy, delight of having someone with whom to share what makes you float. The impetus, the emotion, the delirium, the theatricality of falling in love with someone. Sometimes it feels so unreal that when it becomes palpable, it seems magical.” “Musically, It combines my love for classical songs with a modern twist, and my love for piano and epic guitar riffs in the style of bands like Queen. It is a confessional song, simple and direct ”
“For the video, I knew I wanted a fantasy that was sweet, romantic and surreal. So with my choreographer, Brigitte Kattan and my co-director Sebastián Soto Chacón, we made this video where I am “myself” in a recording studio where I continue to fantasize and miss my love. The lover that the song is about, the same one I’m playing, the same one that makes me “float.” In the end, everything becomes a colorful surreal dream; We dance together with the production team that is on set with me, there are fish, a piano and a long satin dress. ”
