CRYS is a Cuban-Boricua artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her song “Isla del Encanto”, featuring Latin pop artist Musiko, pays tribute to her experience growing up in Puerto Rico. With bubbly, upbeat production, and catchy melodic hooks, this song is perfect for driving around with the windows down.
life without u - Cameron Jeong
Cameron Jeong is a Hispanic Asian-American woman, based in Phoenix, Arizona. She grew up in a small town bordering Mexico, and has since been heavily influenced by her experience being bicultural and bilingual. Her recent song “life without u” is complete with meditative lyrics and fantasy-like production. With an empowering message, “life without u” emphasizes independence, and the importance of being comfortable in your own energy.
tragedy - Dani Murcia
An artist from our BBG community, Dani Murcia is from Miami, now based in Brooklyn, New York. Her recent album “weight of the world”, released in March 2023, is filled with dreamy vocals, and contemplative lyrics and messages. One of my favorite tracks is “tragedy”. With captivating piano and string arrangements, the words reflect on the end of a relationship that wasn’t meant to be.
Locochona - Cariño, Girl Ultra
Collaborating on this energetic track, we have Cariño, a Spanish pop and rock band, and Girl Ultra, an R&B artist originating from Mexico City. “Locochona” is filled with melodic guitar riffs, a punchy bassline, and upbeat production. The lyrics set the scene for a fun, flirty romance.
