Puerto Rican Singer Kany García Is The Most Nominated Female Artist For Latin Grammys

The Latin Grammys are in two weeks and everyone is getting excited to see who takes home the prizes. One artist that has a good chance to take home several prizes is Kany García. The Puerto Rican singer has been nominated in five categories in the Latin Grammys.

Kany García’s latest album racked up several Latin Grammy nominations.

“Mesa Para Dos” is García’s seventh studio album and is already bringing her more acclaim than she expected. The album was a surprise to everyone, even García. The singer felt a need to stay connected to people while in quarantine and thus “Mesa Para Dos” was born with “zero planning.”

“It was kind of a beautiful madness and I told myself if I don’t release these now that we’re living this reality, with these feelings, I don’t know if when we reopen in November or October I will be able to release this album, in this way,” García told NBC News about the album. “It made sense to me today.”

It’s safe to say that “Mesa Para Dos” is a success.

There is a need for new entertainment as quarantining drags on to consume almost all of 2020. García’s album is feeding that need for new entertainment as production in TV, movies, and music was suspended as we tried to get a handle on the pandemic. The album was a cathartic experience for García, according to her interview with NBC News.

Yet, despite the quarantine, García has managed to produce gold.

Garcías has been nominated in five categories in the 2020 Latin Grammys. García was nominated for Record of the Year with “Lo que en ti veo,” Album of the Year with “Mesa Para Dos,” Song of the Year with “Le que en ti veo,” Best Tropical Song with “Búscame,” and Best Singer-Songwriter Album with “Mesa Para Dos.”

García would not have been able to produce this album under normal circumstances.

García wrote all of her 10-song album. Each song is a collaboration with another artist including names like Camilo, Reik, and Carlos Vives. García told NBC News that the pandemic created the perfect environment to create this album.

“We were all at home, and all of our calendars were suddenly free, and I used that time to make duets with whoever I wanted, and they all said yes,” García told NBC News.

Congratulations, Kany!

Best of luck to all of the artists nominated. You can watch the Latin Grammys Nov. 19. Who are you rooting for?

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Rich Music/Nevarez PR

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.

Javiera Mena Turns Up the Melodrama in “Dos” Music Video

Chilean singer-songwriter Javiera Mena is back with her first single of 2021. She is shining in her new music video for “Dos.”

“Dos” is about getting caught up in the feelings of a love triangle.

“Dos” is the newest single from Mena’s upcoming EP. Last year, she previewed the EP with the futuristic “Flashback” and club-ready “Corazón Astral.”

With “Dos,” Mena retains her crown as the Latine queen of synth-pop. Whereas “Flashback” and “Corazón Astral” were more upbeat, she now puts her electronic touch on a heartbreaking ballad. Mena produced the song with Pablo Stipicic and co-wrote it with Marian Ruzzi. “Dos” channels the ’80s pop power ballads and Mena brings on the melodrama. She’s so in love with two and doesn’t know what to do.

“‘Dos’ is a classic ballad with an avant-garde message,” Mena said in a statement. “The song talks about a common topic, triangular relationships but from a different point of view. In this case from a person who is having feelings for two loves and that perhaps both of them fit in his/her heart.”

In the “Dos” music video, Mena sings her heart out.

Despite singing of a love triangle, Mena is all alone in the music video. She plays the piano in an abandoned warehouse. The openly queer icon sings her heart out in the stunning visual.

Mena’s new EP is due out later this spring. “[It’s] a night album with a desire as a common thread,” she adds. “A lot of mystery, sensual dance and above all, a lot of fire. This style of the album is an evolution of who I am: Electro with ballad tints.”
