A passion that has always accompanied him, that belongs to him from childhood, an art that today has also become his job, his destiny. And so the songwriter of Cremona origin Ruggero, to the century Filippo Lazzari, he also dedicated a song to her, Benedetta Musica, the fourth single extracted from People Call Me Ruggero - the album composed of eight tracks and released on 11 January - a true personal anthem to the one that the artist defines: "A variegated element, divine, saving but at the same time human, in short, 'blessed'. In three minutes and fifteen seconds I try to define what music is for me ”.
Benedetta Musica it is an extremely pleasant, catchy piece with a clear rhythm funky and a funny text, all based on the skilled puns. "It is a piece in full Ruggero style - explains Filippo - very light, ironic, energetic; I had fun with the words, with the rhymes that mark the text, I think for example of when I sing: 'Liquid substance and steep mountain / of soft rock descends rapidly, / turbid or limpid', but I hope it can also convey subtle messages , to be seized if one wants to deepen, to go to the bottom ”.
The lyrics and the music on the album are all by Ruggero, this song was also produced and arranged by the brothers Giacomo and Tommaso Ruggeri. "I am really satisfied with their work because I find the arrangement of the piece very interesting - the artist explains - funky but all played live, with real instruments, with really well made horns, very interesting guitars and a bass that, I realized, at the beginning of the song, vaguely reminiscent of "Another one bites the dust" by Queen, even if this quote was absolutely not wanted ".
Il video official is very cheerful and shot with a nice rhythm, the protagonist is always Ruggero who interprets himself and other characters that represent three musical identities far removed from the spirit of the singer and therefore inevitably destined to 'die' to make way for the true 'me artistic "by Filippo-Ruggero, a clear statement that is perfectly summed up in the verse" I'm what you sound ".
"Unlike the ones I have made so far, of which I have often taken care of the script and the direction, in this case I decided to delegate to the Cremonese videomaker Luca Catullo, aka Bazoo, who immediately understood the text and together we decided to create a sequel to the videoclip of I do Superman in which I played three characters. - Filippo tells - In this video I wake up naked, without veils and then, through the ploy of always absurd deaths, I rise every time with a different musical mask (rock singer, reggae and hip hop / trap), until I reach the my personal one is that of Ruggero, dressed in my outfit. Making it was fun but also tiring because the acting really got me involved ".
The video was shot in Cremona, at the home of Juri Lazzari, Ruggero's older brother, "I am pleased that in this video there is somehow the presence of my big brother, to whom I am very close, and also my city" , the singer-songwriter wants to clarify.
The whole album by Ruggero is undoubtedly autobiographic although, confesses Philip, “Some passages represent me more, in addition to Blessed music come to mind I do Superman, Long live us e Always on my side"
The CD People Call Me Ruggero it is available in physical version and can be downloaded on all the best online stores.
