Tedua and Capo Plaza, the new single is Parole Vuote (La Solitude)


Last November 13th, in front of a sold out Forum, Tedua conquered Milan. After all, he had promised it, speaking to the journalists he met before the concert: “You will see an incredible show. I have been preparing for years”. Joined on stage by artist friends, he sang with Cape Plaza. “You will see a surprise soon,” she had predicted. Now, the official: the two rappers have signed a single together, entitled Empty words (Loneliness).

Now, the official: the two rappers have signed a single together, entitled Empty words (Loneliness).

Empty words (Loneliness): Laura Pausini is also there

Produced by ShuneEmpty words (Loneliness) it’s a ballad. Why that “Loneliness” in brackets? Because the song contains a sung part by Laura Pausini, and his iconic song (which triumphed at the Sanremo Festival, New Proposals section, in 1993). It all started last July, when Tedua posted a little one on Instagram extract of the first track of Paradise. Extract which also contained, in fact, a sample de Loneliness by Laura Pausini. The caption read: “Going to heaven. Only for my heartbroken fans.” However, the rapper made it clear that a agreement on that sampling it had not yet been reached. Thus, her fans began to flood the singer with messages, so that she would grant the rights of his piece in Tedua. How did it end? The details are not known but, the publication of Empty words (Loneliness)suggests that agreement was eventually reached.

In the new single in collaboration with Capo Plaza, Tedua transforms into a lyricist. He’s waiting for someone at the Poets’ Tavern, a symbolic place that represents the coldness and detachment of the person who was once at his side. So there is the nostalgia of the past, and there is the loneliness. But there is also the awareness of no longer being the same as before.

Empty words (Loneliness)the text

I made this choice and
I have to go quickly for
Aspire to the top

If you are able to follow me
Then I won’t leave you alone anymore
I’ll get them quickly
Choices with my head banging on your window
You still don’t understand me
All I have left is an honest new life

And it’s no coincidence that I don’t call you or invade your space anymore
I am dear and so grateful to that past
But it’s been so long
That you wouldn’t see me like that
You couldn’t tell me whose
It was the fault and I don’t care
So much so that he won’t be coming back
So face that present and be aware
Because nothing is solved with half-done things

Baby, I’ll wait for you at the Poets’ Tavern
The pen with which I write my poems
Powers you possess are full of mysteries
And you don’t hide but you freeze the Eskimos
Months and months but where were you?
Not to mention yesterday
You showed up more stoned and you didn’t know
How much harm it can do to you
Loneliness is not the solution to problems
I’m returning alone
And I don’t see myself in people
That I met along the way
And they left me with only empty words
Every time I try
Even if I make a mistake I learn again
But at the first mistake it slips and goes
How much more harm loneliness will do you
Loneliness, nananana
Loneliness, loneliness
Loneliness

Even if you are no longer the same as you once were
It was imprinted on the door, the crack of the knuckle
When you still took drugs and turned around
And then you shouted “go away, it’s not you”
This is my duel, with the suffering of an addiction
That’s hurting me, that’s keeping me against the wall
Come here, yes but sit down and have a drink
It goes slowly, but at the piano bar
Do you want
Tell me what’s wrong?
Growing up in those bad places, in the landscapes, in the surrounding area, gods
Ghosts want to harm me
Feel the flavor of the wine
You have no one close to whom you can confide
You are lost, you have asked too much of someone, without ever reciprocating
Maybe you don’t believe in fate
But you are not self-sufficient on your own
Enough to turn your back on a friend

And I thought you understood
How to love yourself to love a neighbor first
At the last circle I circle you until the morning, along the way
The wind on the score
I’m returning alone
And I don’t see myself in people
That I met along the way
And they left me with only empty words
Every time I try
Even if I make a mistake I learn again
But at the first mistake it slips and goes
How much more harm loneliness will do you
Loneliness, nananana
Loneliness, loneliness
Loneliness
And I’m between a rock and a hard place in filthy cellars
She wasn’t the only one smoking alone
The more the bill swells, the more humble I am
I pray for friends that the judge has everything in his hands

This money runs, it doesn’t sleep
Brothers I lost them and no they are not coming back
Inside my iris is a dollar
I was born for this, I don’t sell myself, no
Sitting in my seat they don’t fuck me
Now we are alone and the room is getting warmer
Outside I hear shots and the sixth ambulance of the day passes
And there’s another knife in the belly
Everyone has betrayed me but don’t do it yourself
I’m returning alone
And I don’t see myself in people
That I met along the way
And they left me with only empty words
Every time I try
Even if I make a mistake I learn again
But at the first mistake it slips and goes

How much more harm loneliness will do you
Loneliness, nananana
Loneliness, loneliness
Loneliness
