Mana’s ‘No Ha Parado de Llover’: Original Song vs. Sebastian Yatra Version



On Halloween, Maná surprised fans by dropping a new version of their ‘90s hit “No Ha Parado de Llover” in collaboration with Sebastian Yatra.

Translating to “it hasn’t stopped raining,” the song is home to heartfelt lyrics about losing someone and learning how to cope. The new version with Yatra was born during the 2018 Latin Grammy Person of the Year event, where the Mexican band was honored.

Maná’s new version of “No Ha Parado de Llover” follows their versions of “Rayando El Sol” in collaboration with Pablo Alborán and “De Pies a Cabeza” with Nicky Jam.

Billboard compared both versions of “No Ha Parado de Llover” below.

Title: “No Ha Parado de Llover”

Artist: Maná

Release Year: 1995

Song: “No Ha Parad de Llover” was originally released 24 years ago in 1995 as part of Maná’s fourth studio album, Cuando los Ángeles Lloran. In the Latin rock ballad, frontman Fher Olvera sings about losing a loved one and having many unanswered questions in the process. The single also entered Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs chart.

Video: Although it launched in the ’90s, the original music video for “Rayando el Sol” was published on YouTube on Feb. 2, 2010, where it currently sits at over 37 million views. For the most part, the music video shows the band, shirtless and rocking leather vests, performing the song under the rain, paying homage to the song’s title. Other scenes feature an ex-couple reminiscing on their times together, a slithering snake, religious statues crying tears of blood, and Fher breaking a mirror with a phone.

Title: “No Ha Parado de Llover”

Artist: Maná & Sebastian Yatra

Release Year: 2019

Song: Keeping its lyrics intact, the new version with Sebastian Yatra includes a new musical arrangement, incorporating Yatra’s pop essence and fusing it with the Mexican band’s rock melodies.

Video: The music video, directed by Pablo Croce, addresses the important social message of texting and driving. The dramatic music video shows Yatra and the band performing the song in the woods with scenes of a car crash in the background. The clip tells the story of a woman who lost her best friend in a crash due to texting and driving and a separate story of a man who found his girlfriend cheating on him. Both the woman and man, who are dealing with hardships, are reunited at the end of a video by a butterfly, which symbolizes the spirit of the friend who passed away in the accident. Raising awareness, a message at the end of the clip states: “the use of cellphone behind the wheel is one of the leading causes of death today.” It currently has over 3.5 million views.
