More than two months have passed since the premiere of ‘Rocío, tell the truth to stay alive’, the documentary series of the universal heiress of the Jury, whose last episode aired last Wednesday, June 2, culminating with an interview with the protagonist in full direct.

The consequences of this report continue to happen and everything seems to indicate that they will continue to do so for a long time. Those alluded to throughout the thirteen chapters have already announced lawsuits and exclusives and interventions in different media are foreseen in order to answer Rocío Carrasco.

This has only just begun, and the situation will worsen even more when the second part of the documentary series, ‘En el nombre de Rocío’, is released. The report has become a social phenomenon and has opened the debate about the treatment that the media, especially those specialized in social chronicles, make of cases of gender violence.

Reactions go beyond the familiar sphere of ‘the greatest’ and has even had political repercussions, since some leaders like Irene Montero have spoken out publicly about Carrasco’s testimony. Even Pedro Sánchez, the Prime Minister, would have contacted her, as revealed by María Teresa Campos in the ‘Deluxe’ edition of ‘Sálvame’.

The influence of the documentary series is reflected in different fields and sectors, including the musical. ‘Tout l’Univers’, the song with which Gjon’s Tears represented Switzerland at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, was chosen as the main theme of ‘Rocío, tell the truth to stay alive’, and reached heights of popularity very high among the public.

‘Voilà’, the piece that the French Barbara Pravi defended in the same contest on the old continent, also played a very relevant role in different parts of the report. Both artists were invited to the set to perform live and, coincidence or not, the two managed to very enviable positions in the contest whose final was held on May 22.

But, how could it be otherwise, it is the themes of ‘the greatest’ that have taken on the most relevance in the course of the documentary series. Each of the episodes has been titled with the name of one of his songs, which accompany Rocío Carrasco’s story throughout the report.

The inclusion of the pieces by Rocío Jurado has served to familiarize the younger audience with her work, which until then was little known in certain age groups.

Before I didn’t listen to Rocío Jurado. I knew the typical songs from my mother, but now I have listened to her through the documentary and I like it. I even get his songs on Spotify”, a 25-year-old woman tells La Razón.

Her statements are also reflected in hundreds of other young people who have discovered Rocío Jurado thanks to your daughter’s documentary series.

‘The Greatest’ is back in fashion, if it ever stopped, and this trend translates into new income for its universal heir. Rocío Carrasco owns her mother’s royalties, so each new reproduction of one of her songs becomes more benefits for her. A round business.
