Adassa is an American singer who performs reggaeton for the most part. Generally speaking, interested individuals will know her because of her involvement in Encanto. However, she has been performing since the mid-2000s, as shown by her extensive list of collaborations with other artists. That means interested individuals should have no problem finding material recorded by Adassa.
Here is our opinion of the ten best Adassa songs ever released:
10. “Dancing Alone”
“Dancing Alone” is an excellent example of Adassa’s collaborations with other artists. Strictly speaking, it is a Tale & Dutch song, meaning she is a featured artist. Still, “Dancing Alone” more than qualifies because she provides vocals. Fittingly, this is solid dance music.
9. “Blanca Navidad”
Chances are good interested individuals can guess “Blanca Navidad” is a Christmas song. After all, “Feliz Navidad” has become one of the seasonal classics. Thanks to that, people should be able to connect “Navidad” with Christmas, even if they don’t know that it means “Nativity.” Furthermore, “Blanca” looks like “blank” and its similar-sounding counterparts, meaning it isn’t a huge conceptual leap to the color white. Regardless, “Blanca Navidad” is enjoyable holiday music from a team-up between Hilda Lamas and Adassa. It holds up surprisingly well when compared with the better-known recordings in existence.
8. “All of You”
Adassa voiced Dolores Madrigal in Encanto. As a result, interested individuals should know “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” isn’t the only song from the movie she contributed to. Another example would be “All of You,” which is notable for being the song that ties Encanto’s themes together. Of course, Adassa wasn’t the only one who sang the song. Instead, she was one of several artists who contributed, which makes sense considering the song’s narrative role.
Early firearms weren’t as reliable as their modern successors. For proof, look no further than how various issues could cause the explosive power of the ignited gunpowder to come out of the breech rather than the muzzle. Something that didn’t just ruin the shot but could also cause serious damage to the firearm and the firearm user. Such incidents made a lasting impression, so much so that backfire still refers to unintended and undesirable consequences. “Backfire” does a decent job of living up to the explosive expectations set by the song’s name.
Adassa has never reached the heights of the music industry. Despite this, she has worked with some well-known artists. One excellent example is Pitbull, a rapper and pop musician who has sold more than 25 million studio albums. “Loca!” means “crazy.” Due to this, interested individuals shouldn’t be surprised to learn the song is the kind of fare one would expect from the team-up, which is far from being a bad thing.
5. “No Me Compares”
“No Me Compares” is one of the non-album singles Adassa has released since the late 2000s. It isn’t a happy song, which makes sense because it is a breakup song. Moreover, the lyrics make it clear that this breakup was messier than most. It isn’t just a matter of two people running into a hurdle they can’t hop over together. The narrator is leaving her significant other because she is fed up with how he remains besotted with someone who no longer feels the same way about him, which explains why she tells him to move on while she moves on.
4. “De Tra”
“De Tra” came out earlier in the mid-2000s. It is one of Adassa’s highest-performing singles because it peaked at the number 36 position on the Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay chart and the number 40 position on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart. If people are looking for something energetic, they should consider including this song on their playlist.
The Kama Sutra is a somewhat well-known name in the West. Technically, it is an ancient Indian manual on living well that includes sections that are more or less in line with what one would expect from sex manuals. However, those sections dominate how it is perceived in the West, which explains how it is used in the pop culture of the West. “Kamasutra” is exactly what it sounds like. Moreover, it is interesting in that it included Pitbull as a featured artist, meaning it predated “Loca!” by a considerable margin.
2. “La Manera”
“La Manera” was included on Adassa rather than Kamasutra. However, it is still the same style of music as “De Tra” and “Kamasutra.” This song also did quite well in its day by reaching the number 31 position on the Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay chart.
1. “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”
Of course, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” makes the top of this list by being the single most famous song to come from Encanto. It has been compared to the villain songs of other Disney movies, which is no small praise. After all, those songs are consistently some of the most talked-about, as shown by everything from “Be Prepared” from The Lion King to “Shiny” from Moana.
That said, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” stands out in several ways right from the start. For example, it is a song in which other people sing about the character in focus rather than the character in focus singing about themselves. Similarly, it is a villain song for a movie that is unconventional enough to omit such a narrative role. In any case, Adassa can’t claim sole credit for the song. Its very nature means that she played just one of several characters who sang about the ostracized member of the Madrigal family. Even so, Adassa does deserve a portion of the merit for sending it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2022, which is still impressive.
