Lola Índigo has managed to make history by becoming one of the musical stars of the moment after being the first to be expelled from Operación Triunfo 2017. Although she only spent two weeks at the academy, the singer has accumulated nine million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Right now he is in full promotion of his latest album Eldragon, with which he is achieving international success. And for his promotion, he does not hesitate to attend all possible programs. One of the latest has been the El Sentido De La Birra podcast, where he wanted to talk about his difficult time on the talent show that made him famous.
"What I am today is not what I am going to be tomorrow (...) so I am not too worried about criticism," is one of the things he wanted to make clear in this interview. And if Lola Índigo has always been characterized by something, it is always by not keeping quiet about anything. And that is why she wanted to address what for her was an "aggressive" contract.
The singer has confessed that before entering OT2017 they made them sign a contract that linked them to a record company from the beginning. "I don't know if there are three albums at the outset. Yes, three. So it's quite leonine. That's the word the lawyers taught me," she continued.
When asked by the presenter, the singer questioned the reason for the term "leonine". "It bites you on the head and eats you, right?" she replied. And for her it is a "very aggressive" contract, especially for such young people. "I was 25 years old, I didn't have shit in my gut, imagine a 19-year-old. Who signs that?," she added.
One of the things that pisses off Lola Índigo the most is that they couldn't take that pre-contract home to review it, as she explained. "On top of that, you sign it right there at the casting and, either you sign it, or you don't enter the final casting," she said.
"Then it said in the contract: 'This has been reviewed by I don't know who. No one has reviewed that,'" he continued. Even so, he did not want to criticize Operación Triunfo only: "This happens everywhere, I believe. It is not the only talent in which it happens. This is not a criticism of OT. And I can tell you that there are many cases worse."
After all this explanation, he did not hesitate to send a recommendation to all new artists: "Nothing kids, read the contracts. You read them, you hire someone to read it to you or you ask your parents for help, but if you go to a talent …".
