Karol G La Vida Es Una meaning and English lyrics explained

Karol G is a global phenomenon. The Colombian reggaeton star is one of the most popular Latin artists in the world, and her music has transcended the barriers of language and culture. Her songs are heard in countries all over the world, even in places where Spanish is not the primary language.

La Vida Es Una Sola – “Life is just one”, the title of the song can also be translated as “Life is one”. La Vida Es Una Sola is a song about giving value to your life since you only live once. Teaches us to not fight with those we love because maybe those fights are over nothing, and when you are happy, everything feels nice.

The lyrics say that we won’t carry with us anything when we die, just the love of our parents. La Vida Es Una by Karol G is a simple but beautiful song. The song was made for the film Puss in Boots: The Last Wish as the main theme so if you saw the movie, you probably remember parts of the song and music.

In terms of practicing Spanish, this song wasn’t difficult to translate, just a couple of contractions can make the song a little complicated but those are easy to understand just by searching in Google. Overall, La Vida Es Una is a great song, not the best from Karol G, but at least one of the most relaxing in terms of the lyrics.
