“Destino” captures the essence of fate and attraction. Could you recount an instance that sparked the creation of this single?

An instance that sparked the creation of “Destino” was that I really wanted to write a song that could captivate the word “soulmates,” but with a little twist in it. That is what sparked my initial idea for “Destino.”

The song subtly suggests finding the right person at the wrong time. Can you share how you managed to communicate that idea through your music and lyrics?

The way I manage to communicate that idea through my music and the lyrics is by storytelling. I wrote a song trying to convey the idea that I believe there is a thing such as the right person, but the wrong timing. Destiny has a way of bringing together soulmates who are meant to be with each other. And I hope through my lyrics people will be able to understand the message I am trying to portray. A moment in life when you believe that a person is perfect but time tells you otherwise, we as humans know the right and wrong things come in our world not when they are supposed to but when they are meant to. Everything is just timing.

As you embrace your Latina identity in your music, how do you think this authenticity enhances the connection between you and your audience, especially with tracks like “Destino”? 

Firstly, I’m honored to embrace my Latin roots, but to be honest I consider myself a diverse artist. The goal with “Destino” is to show that I am capable of writing, composing, and singing in both languages.

How do you infuse the emotions from your songwriting into your stage performance?

I haven’t had the opportunity to perform on a stage, but if I had the chance, I know it would be one of the best experiences. It would be a great way to connect with my listeners. We will have fun from beginning to end, because I will sing my heart out, reliving each of my lyrics and dancing to each of my singles. It will be a performance nobody will ever forget.

In what way do you perceive your songs as a unifying force, transcending cultural and temporal boundaries through shared emotions?

The way that I perceive my songs is by trying to transmit a message, express an emotion, and tell a story. It is a way of hoping my supporters or at least someone can connect to the message I am trying to portray and identify themselves in their own way, with their own feelings, based on their own experiences, and in hopes, that some will be touched and will feel connected to my lyrics through a unifying force of emotions.

How do you see your distinctive style playing a role in fostering a more diverse and inclusive music industry?

The way I see my distinctive style playing a role in fostering a more diverse and inclusive music industry is by fostering diversity through all cultures with my lyrics and the message transcending through my music. Currently, I believe I am a diverse artist, my music is distinctive, and my style I believe will cultivate different types of audiences. Because of that I believe that it doesn’t matter where you are from, you will identify yourself with my style.

Will a video be released for “Destino”? Can we expect additional singles from you in the upcoming months?

As of this moment, a video for “Destino” is not in the works. But as for the next upcoming months, my supporters can expect more amazing, unique singles.
