Talk to me about your upcoming album

It’s called Louder, which means mas fuerte in Spanish. It’s a movement that we want to share with people. It kind of means let’s be louder about the positive things over the negative things and the struggles we’re going through. The album has 12 songs. Two of the songs are bonus tracks that we just added like two weeks ago [Laughs]. I’ve always said, it’s like a trip for me because I have songs like “Muévelo” that is up-tempo, but I also have songs like “Solo Yo” that are ballads. I have songs in English, Spanish, and some of them are bilingual. I didn’t want the whole album to sound the same. I wanted to make it seem like an experience in some way, so that’s basically the whole concept of the album. I’m extremely happy because it’s my first album, and we’ve been working on it for three years. I want to see what happens, but I really believe in it. I think it’s a different album and a very new concept. It’s a very positive album, and I’m proud of that.

What was the inspiration behind the album?

Inspiration for me is life. Some of the songs are just about living your life, and having fun. There are songs that I wrote, like my latest single “Llegaste Tú,” that talks about not believing love anymore but then all of a sudden someone comes into your life and you open the doors of your heart to them. Most of my songs are about experiences of mine. Other’s are about the experiences about the people around me. For example, one of my friends was telling me her story and I found that very beautiful, and I started writing it. It’s more about experiences and positive thoughts, and positive messages to people.

What are some of your favorite songs on the album?

I would say “Puedes Ver Pero No Tocar.” I feel like that’s just a really strong song. “Conmigo (The Rest of Your Life)” is definitely one of my favorites too. I mean all of them [Laughs], of course.

Which one do you think is going be your favorite to perform?

“How to Love.” Well it wasn’t really my song, it’s Cash Cash, but I got to perform it in Argentina last year, and that was so much fun. Also “Puedes Ver Pero No Tocar.”
