La Ciudad ardio Alejandra Guzmán Translation Meaning and Lyrics

Review

Guzmán is a big girl and she's having a fun night out with a guy.  Song has some nice refrains.

Guzmán is the main character and she's hanging out in Madrid.  Along comes a dude and invites her to come with him.  They go out for a romantic dinner.  While she's gone to the bathroom he disappears.  

There is then a section that I'm not so clear about:  It maybe voiced as from the dude - if she wants to see him again she should dress like a whore and meet him at midnight.

Guzmán is very young in this performance for a live studio audience.

She's wearing some funky clothes and has come equally funky dance-moves. She is confidently strutting her stuff on stage, and vocally giving it some.
