Mexican singers Thalia and Carlos Rivera released the lyric video for their collaborative single Qué Ironía on Sunday, 12 May 2019.
Qué Ironía, which translates to “What Irony” in English, hears the Latino singers relating their unrequited feelings for their partners to various ironic instances that occur in nature. The guitar-driven ballad hears Thalia open with a verse that questions why nature allows for night and day or the river and ocean to unite, but somehow she is unable to be with the one person who she loves. Rivera then begins his vocal contribution by sharing his unreciprocated feelings for a woman, stating that he feels sadness whilst seeing her happy and that he remains hers whilst she belongs to someone else.
The lyric video, which was released on Sunday, 12 May 2019, shows both singers in a brightly lit room as they perform their parts to the revolving camera. The scenes alternate between the singers performing the song and visuals of them in different rooms, with the lyric-fonts dominating the screen. The lyrics appear throughout the visuals with a heavily-edited cloudy filter overlaid. The lyric video has amassed close to 400 000 views since its release.
The song, which was released in November 2018, gained major popularity in both North and South America, topping the charts in the respective countries. The single was released with an audio video on YouTube and has amassed over four million views since its release.
