Colombian-American superstar Kali Uchis is set to drop her fourth studio album, Orquídeas, on January 12, 2024. This album marks her second Spanish-language project and is highly anticipated by her fans.
In a statement shared with Billboard Español, Kali Uchis emphasized the cultural significance of orchids in Colombia. She revealed that the orchid is the national flower of Colombia, and the country is home to more species of orchids than anywhere else on Earth. The orchid’s timeless, eerie, mystic, striking, graceful, and sensual allure inspired this upcoming album. Uchis expressed her fascination and magnetism towards the flower, using its energy to redefine the way Latinas are viewed in the music industry. The album aims to bring a fresh perspective and energy to the Latin music scene.
Uchis began this exciting Spanish-language music era in August with the release of the album’s first single, “Muñekita.” This catchy track features Dominican dembow singer El Alfa and JT from City Girls, who added their dynamic energy to the song. Uchis is known for her ability to bring together unexpected artists and create engaging, sexy songs. She expressed her excitement about collaborating with El Alfa and JT, both renowned for their summer hits and high-energy music.
Kali Uchis’ previous album, Red Moon in Venus, was released in March and received critical acclaim. It reached No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart and included the RIAA gold-certified single “Moonlight.” The album featured collaborations with artists like Summer Walker, Don Toliver, and Omar Apollo.
The Red Moon in Venus Tour featured performances at iconic venues, including the Hollywood Bowl, Radio City Music Hall, and Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom. Uchis made waves at festivals like Coachella. She also delighted audiences at Lollapalooza in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Estéreo Picnic in Colombia.
