Shaun Farrugia’s grandma reacting to his song with Martin Garrix is pure goals

Ok, we have just been gifted the most wholesome video of the week thanks to rising star Shaun Farrugia. 

Posting to his social media, local artist Shaun Farrugia uploaded a swipe post captioned ‘April 2022 – best month yet’. And if you swipe to see more, you’ll watch the cutest video of Farrugia with his grandma reacting to his latest song with Martin Garrix.

The pair were in a car awaiting the climax of the song, and his grandmother was absolutely loving it. As soon as the music escalates, his grandmother wastes no time in busting some moves to cheer on her grandson. 

And we have to agree with the rest of Farrugia’s caption as his grandmother is just the cutest. April was understandably deemed his best month yet as he released not one, but two songs with international DJ Martin Garrix.

The duo released ‘If We’ll Ever Be Remembered’ in less than a month after their first collaboration ‘Starlight’ hit the sound waves. And we are sure to hear more from the pair as Shaun continues to show us that a Maltese artist can make it anywhere.

The Spanish champions Real Madrid have reached yet another UEFA Champions League final after coming from 3 goals down late on in the tie against Manchester City.

The first half didn’t feature much, with both teams looking anxious to make a first move. All that changed in the second half when Manchester City winger Riyadh Mahrez sent the away fans into a frenzy scoring from a powerful shot. Everyone thought that the tie was over until the 90th minute when Madrid’s young winger Rodrygo scored a goal to liven up the game. It didn’t take long for Real Madrid to find the all important equalizer as only a minute after his goal, Rodrygo managed to find the back of the net again this time sending the tie into extra time.

When extra time started it was clear who had the mental advantage over who. The City players looked depleted and deflated whilst the Real Madrid players were as motivated as ever to find the winner to send them to the Champions League final in Paris. Again the Real Madrid fans didn’t have to wait long as in the 95th minute star striker Karim Benzema coolly converted a penalty despite the amount of pressure placed on him. The goal sent Real Madrid into the final with their eyes now set on a record extending fourteenth Champions League title.
