The “Bella Ciao” remix for the Netflix series La Casa de Papel has been gaining a lot of attention since its release earlier this month. “I have always loved ‘La Casa de Papel’ (’Money Heist’) and the way this show connected with millions of people across the world. ‘Bella Ciao’ is an iconic song and marks an important moment in the series, so being asked to reimagine it and be a part of the Casa de Papel world is truly an honor. From recording the song to shooting the video, I hope everyone enjoys this cover as much as I do!” she said in a statement.
