· Virginio, the Italian singer-songwriter and Grammy winner with Laura Pausini, continues his adventure in the Latin world, with the romanticism of his lyrics, after the release of his latest single “Mañana”
Miami, FL. (May 25, 2023). Teo Bok continues shining as one of the most promising new talents in the industry today. Following the success of his recent singles “Esperanza” and “Algo Diferente,” the young singer and songwriter returns to capture the hearts of his fans once again with his newest hit “El Día Con La Noche,” collaborating with the Italian singer-songwriter and composer Virginio, who is responsible for a number of Laura Pausini’s hits.
Virginio is known in Italy for his grand talent as a singer-songwriter, and released his first Spanish-language single, “Mañana,” last year. He’s ready to continue his parallel career in Latin America with this new release.
Produced by multi-Grammy Award winner Julio Reyes Copello and written by Teo with Virginio, “El Día Con La Noche” is a dedication to love, one of the greatest forces in the universe, in its truest form.
Emotional and profound, the song celebrates the power of love, its ability to unite us, and its value despite our differences. In this incredible story, the two music stars succeed in reminding listeners that it is exactly those differences that make life beautiful and that we can coexist in harmony, just as the day and night work together and complement each other.
No matter our gender or ethnicity, love affects all of us and can transform how we experience the world around us.
About his new single Teo shares, “I love any expression of love and ‘El Día Con La Noche’ represents the purity of a feeling that can’t be discriminated against. When I was a child, I suffered from bullying right about the time when I was in Italy. I was beginning my career in the world of music and I didn’t understand, I was suffering, and I asked myself why. I remember what my mom told me: ‘My love, everything that is different is scary.’ Since that moment, I understood how much fear drives away love and I began to live in the dream of a world without discrimination, where diversity is a partner and not an enemy.”
For Virginio this song is important because it speaks about a diverse world in a positive way, of normalcy and acceptance. “Today my goal,” affirms the Italian singer, “is to preserve beauty in music and that’s why I believe that writing about diversity is fundamental, because we are all different and we have to learn how to respect each other, love each other, and above all, understand each other. Just as the day doesn’t exist without the night, differences complement each other like this. In my songs I speak about romantic love, feeling, and of personal acceptance so that people don’t feel alone, just like when I listen to songs. I’m so happy to bring my own style of music to this project by Teo Bok.”
This song completes TEO BOK’s first EP, completely in Spanish in Latin America, and he’s preparing to conquer this market with his melodies, those that transmit love, beauty, and positivity. The songs Algo Diferente, Esperanza, No Te Vayas, and Todo Va a Estar bien have already been released previously. Teo has captivated the Latin audience in the United States and Spain, along with King Felipe and Queen Letizia.
For Virginio this song represents a significant phase in his career in the Latin world because one of his main goals is to write and sing songs in Spanish, singles that will also be part of his upcoming album.
Teo is currently preparing his tour in Spain, where the single ESPERANZA has won the heart of the royal family.
Today fans can also enjoy the official music video for “El Día Con La Noche” simultaneously on Teo’s and Virginio’s YouTube channels. Filmed in Madrid under the direction of LIGHTBROS, the clip highlights two separate romances that will impact fans through their celebration of love in all its forms.
