It’s not every day that a hit song addresses such weighty issues, and yet that’s exactly what Código FN have done in their new single, “Humilde De Abolengo.”
The lyrics are insightful and sad, addressing poverty, hunger, and injustice. “Cuando era niño/antes no tenía nada (When I was a boy I had nothing),” are the opening lines. “Nací con hambre (I was born hungry)” is sung later.
Yet the song also talks about a drive to make something out of oneself. “Las injusticias/de la vida he superado/porque al trabajo/yo jamás me le he rajado/aquí seguimos/trabajando día con día (I have overcome the injustices of life, work I’ve never cracked, because we work everyday).”
It’s a deeply personal song for vocalist Javier Cuen, who penned the piece.
“When I was a child I had nothing,” said Cuen in a press release. “[But] I was born hungry to succeed.”
It’s a song that is sure to resonate with anyone who is going through a hard time. As Cuen sings in the song, “Nunca se olviden/cuando hay vida/hay esperanza (Never forget there is hope in life).”
