There are songs about cars, whether it's "Drive My Car" by the Beatles or "Bitchin' Camaro" by The Dead Milkmen, but it doesn't get more current and common as upcoming teen sensation Cuco and his "CR-V" song from his newly released EP "Chiquito. The South L.A.-based singer is just a kid but a very talented multi-instrumentalist. And the song isn't some ditty about a random Honda but Cuco's own personal mode of transportation.
His easy style with some interspersed rapping makes "CR-V" quite catchy. Apparently, the vehicle has some sentimental value. "It was the first car I bought on my own," The EP "Chiquito" just came out in iTunes on May 4th, but you can just listen to it via Soundcloud here and decide if you want to buy. We just know that a guy singing about his car is always cool.
Cuco has already found a fair amount of success on the music scene thanks to songs like "CR-V", with his simple and relatable lyrics and easy sound. The fact that he can sing about one of the most common vehicles in America today means widespread appeal. His urban sound also helps. Kudos to a teenager who can find art in the mundane transportation. Maybe someday when Cuco hits it big, "CR-V" will rank up there with Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac".
