Global superstar Becky G releases her cover of “Bella Ciao” along with the music video via Kemosabe/RCA Records.
“Bella Ciao” has recently re-entered the pop culture zeitgeist as the unofficial anthem for the hit Netflix series La Casa De Papel (Money Heist). Originating from 19th Century Italy, the song first appears in Part 1 of the show and the character Tokyo recounts in the season’s finale, “The Professor’s whole life revolved around one idea…Resistance. His grandfather, who had fought with the Resistance to defeat the fascists in Italy, taught him that song. And then…he taught us.”
As a fan of the show, Becky is thrilled to partner with Netflix on her cover of “Bella Ciao.” Her cover comes alongside a music video which pays homage to the show with the iconic red jumpsuit and mask and of course the bars of gold from the Bank of Spain. The video is directed by Megan Gamez (John Legend, Mario).
“I have always loved La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) and the way this show connected with millions of people across the world,” Becky G says. “‘Bella Ciao’ is an iconic song and marks an important moment in the series, so being asked to reimagine it and be a part of the Casa de Papel world is truly an honor. From recording the song to shooting the video, I hope everyone enjoys this cover as much as I do!”
Part 5: Volume 2, the finale of the series, will premiere globally on Netflix on Friday, December 3rd. In the remaining episodes, Tokyo is dead. The enemy still lurks in the Bank of Spain, wounded but as dangerous as ever. Facing their darkest hour and greatest challenge yet, the gang hatch a bold plan to get the gold out without anyone noticing. To make matters worse, the Professor makes the biggest mistake of his life.
Money Heist is one of the most popular non-English series on Netflix. As just announced recently on Top10.Netflix.com, Parts 3, 4 and 5 are ranked highly in their top 10.
