Kaoma - Lambada Lyrics

“Lambada”, also known as “Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)” or “Llorando se fue (Lambada)”, is a song recorded by French pop group Kaoma. It features guest vocals by Brazilian vocalist Loalwa Braz. It was released as the first single from Kaoma’s debut album Worldbeat. The video, filmed on Cocos beach in the city of Trancoso, in the state of Bahia, Brazil, features the Brazilian child duo Chico & Roberta.

The song in Portuguese is a mix cover of Márcia Ferreira’s 1986 hit “Chorando se foi” (lyrics translated to Portuguese) and the Cuarteto Continental hit “Llorando se fue” (first upbeat version of the song introducing the accordion), released in 1984 through the Peruvian record label INFOPESA and produced by Alberto Maravi; both songs were adapted from the 1981 Bolivian song Llorando se fue by Los Kjarkas.

At the time of release, the song has been regarded as the most successful European single in the history of CBS records with sales of 1.8 million copies in France and more than 4 million across Europe. It has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide, making it one of the world’s most-famous singles of all time.

The single became a worldwide summer hit, selling over 5 million copies in 1989[29] and was part of the Lambada dance craze. It reached number one on eleven different charts, as well as number four on both the UK Singles Chart and Irish Singles Chart, number five on the Australia ARIA Singles Chart, and in 1990[30] it hit number 46 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of the best known Brazilian songs of all time.

Chart Performance

“Chorando Se Foi (Lambada)” was the 37th best-selling single of the United Kingdom during 1989. In France, where it topped the chart for 12 weeks and sold almost two million copies, the single was the number-one on the year-end list.

Music Video

The music video of the song was filmed on stage on Tago Mago Island in the Mediterranean Sea and on Cocos Beach in the city of Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil. It features the Brazilian child duet Chico & Roberta as love interests. Roberta’s father does not want her to hang out with Chico, but Loalwa mends the situation among the three.

Motion Picture

The song was licensed by producer Richard L. Albert for his film The Forbidden Dance after he saw Kaoma perform in a Los Angeles club. Not only was Kaoma’s rendition used, but the song was also performed by Kid Creole and the Coconuts on screen with English lyrics.

Kaoma – Lambada Lyrics

Chorando se foi quem um dia só me fez chorar
Chorando se foi quem um dia só me fez chorar
Chorando estará, ao lembrar de um amor
Que um dia não soube cuidar

Chorando estará, ao lembrar de um amor
Que um dia não soube cuidar
A recordação vai estar com ele aonde for
A recordação vai estar pra sempre aonde for

Dança, sol e mar, guardarei no olhar
O amor faz perder encontrar
Lambando estarei ao lembrar que este amor
Por um dia um instante foi rei

A recordação vai estar com ele aonde for
A recordação vai estar pra sempre aonde for
Chorando estará ao lembrar de um amor
Que um dia não soube cuidar
