'El Pollito Pío' children's song is the new hit set to take over the world!

Watch out Psy and your "Gangnam Style," a new song is in town that will blow that Korean hit off the charts! Italian radio station, Radio Globo released the song "Il Pulcino Pio" in July and it has gone viral since its launch. The song produced by Bruno Benvenuti and Max Moroldo has already been translated into 20 language--and we're in love with its Spanish version, "El Pollito Pio" (The Little Chick Cheep).

The song became popular in Italy, with more than 80 million views! In Spanish, it's also been a hit, with more than 4 million views already. According to teinteresa.es, the song originated from Brazil in the 80's but did not become popular until Italy brought it to its prominence today.


When I heard the catchy tune, I knew immediately it was going to be a hit no matter what language was used to produce it. It's one of those catchy earworms that you can't help but sing to--much like "Gangnam Style." This song in particular is going to be great for parents to play for their kids since it's so catchy, it's sure to keep them entertained for hours as it teaches them different animals and the sounds they make.
