Manel Navarro, 21, is a young composer and singer whose music is a mixture of influences from Bob Dylan to Ed Sheeran. Manel, always carrying his guitar, breaks the mould of pop music, with the rhythm of his brilliant songs. The singer and composer performs in the style of the tradition of James Bay or Passenger.

Aside from original material Manel's covers have also performed well on social media. DJ and producer Alan Walker praised Manel publicly for his cover of one of his songs. After success with his first single, Candle, released in 2016, his second single, Do It For Your Lover, has become a radio hit.

Lyrics of Do It For Your Lover

A veces cuesta decir todo lo que uno piensa A veces la vida causa estragos sin que te des cuenta A veces parece que es como una melodía Frustrada y perdida no nos deja ver la luz del día Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love Coge mi mano, no cierres esa puerta Deja que el dolor y la tristeza desaparezcan Así que pega un grito, sal ahí y vuela Y verás que por los tuyos siempre vale la pena Así que Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover, Just do it, just do it, just do it for your lover Just do it just do it, just do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover. Do it for your lover, do it for your lover babe, clap your hands and do it for your lover, Do it for your lover, do it for your lover, Do it for those you ever care and love
