"Sentirte" obviously had a powerful underlying story to it. Are you able to dive deeper into the honest meaning of the track?
It was honestly all about love and lust in a romantic teenage relationship and the strong emotions you feel when you first meet someone that you are strongly attracted to. I wanted to make a song that was an upbeat party song because I've done quite a few sensitive songs, and I wanted to elevate my mood as well as others. I deal with anxiety and depression and this song helped me feel happy. I really feel that finding your sexuality is so important and this song celebrates that. I also sang it in both English and Spanish. I was inspired by Latino Artists that I love, and I wrote the song to celebrate my Hispanic heritage on my Dad's side. It is one of the first Pop/Latino songs I've written. I've never fit into a genre box or an ethnicity box.
"Sentirte" is flooded with absolute passion and emotion. What emotions were crucial to channel when creating this song?
I wrote the music with a fun tropical vibe full of excitement while the lyrics expressed the passion and romance that I was feeling about a romantic relationship I was having. To be honest, I was really feeling a sexy lustful infatuation vibe while writing and singing the song.
How do you personally feel about live performance? Would you say that you prefer the live performance aspect of music more over the writing/recording process?
I'm 16 and I've been in a studio writing and producing music for the last 3 years, growing and developing as a musician/producer/singer who plays all the instruments and beats for my songs. I love creating while singing in my studio. It's where I'm most at home. I look forward to hopefully going out on tour soon though.
It was amazing showcasing "Sentirte" to our listeners, and getting to know you as an artist in the process! Any words you'd like to leave the BuzzMusic community off with?!
