CUÉNTAME | THE MUSIC VIDEO (filmed during the pandemic!)

"Cuéntame" or "Tell me," is a plead to allow me to get to know you.

CUÉNTAME (Original Song & Music Video) Platinum Cristi Madrid I wrote “Cuéntame” towards the end of February 2020 during my second year in university in Marbella, Spain. It was only a week before the global lockdowns in March when I was able to record and release this song which was my first single in Spanish. “Cuéntame” (English: “Tell me”) was written about a boy I met in Spain who was quite forward and experienced in the world of dating, in stark contrast to my relatively conservative and rather socially awkward behaviour. Flirting had never been my forte, and I didn’t know how to respond to it from boys either. We did not even share much in common – with the exception of our love of telling stories: stories about our funny childhood experiences to our day-to-day activities, dreaded final examinations and adrenaline-spiking tournaments. I realised I preferred getting to know him in this way before thinking of anything physical with him, which he had often proposed beforehand. I actually started to feel something deeper as he’d tell me more about himself and ask me questions about myself in return, that “kilig” effect that transcended the cheesy compliments he’d tell me in the beginning. Therefore, “Cuéntame” or “Tell me,” is a plead to allow me to get to know you. It’s not asking you to tell me sweet nothings or pick-up lines or empty promises for that matter. It’s only asking you to tell me about yourself and what your genuine intentions are for me. Tell me about your day, your victories and downfalls. I’ll listen.

LYRIC TRANSLATION

When I fall, I want to do it right.

I want to get to know you first.

I want to know who I’m falling for...

You want to see me,

But you don't come

When I say

You can not sleep here.

You want to kiss me,

But you can not.

I need to know

More about you.

Chorus:

Tell me

More about you

If you’re for me

If you love only me.

Tell me

About your life,

About your day,

Victories, the downfalls.

You want to touch me,

But I believe

There will be no pleasure

Without true love.

If you love me,

You should be sure of that.

Do not waste

My time.

Chorus:

Tell me

More about you

If you’re for me

If you love only me.

Tell me

About your life,

About your day,

Victories and downfalls.

Bridge:

Is it wrong that I want to get to know you

Before I fall in love?

Trust me,

It will be better like this.

Is it wrong that I want to get to know you

Before I touch you?

Make me

Fall in love with you.

Tell me

More about you.

Do this for me.

Never, do I ever

Want to lose you
