Andy & Lucas are no longer ‘kids’, they reached 40 and are also parents. But they assure that the essence of their music remains intact and that is why they are still valid.
“We have changed physically and it shows, because I was thin and now I have little left of that (laughs). In terms of music, I think we have continued to make good music, we are hard workers, very heavy with what we do because we like it and it moves us. and we are privileged to do what we like and live from it on top of that,” he says. Andy Morales via Zoom.
him and his partner Lucas Gonzalez They are in raids because they began a tour of presentations in their country, Spain, to celebrate the 20 years of the duo. “In our country the public loves us and songs like ‘Son de amores’ or ‘Tanto la quiería’ are classics that last over time. As long as we continue to have the same mentality we can continue. A musician, an artist, can be as many years as health allows as long as he does his job well. Hopefully we will have another 20 years”, says Lucas, who joins the zoom from another part of Spain.

It is not ridiculous if one day we make reggaeton harder or if we do something that people are not used to, because we care about our music, ”he adds.
With 40 gold and 20 platinum records, Andy & Lucas have just released a special production entitled ’20 years, 20 songs’ to celebrate two decades of artistic career.

No one has the right to take another person’s life. It is something that I do not understand. For example, I have a daughter and if something happened to her I would die, I wouldn’t know what my reaction would be. Hopefully this will disappear one day, this abuse against women and any type of mistreatment ”, she says, andy father of a couple
