Yeah, she is doing a good job! So let’s talk about your new albums.
Right now, I’m actually in the studio. We’re planning on releasing my Spanish language album—my third bachata album—hopefully in the fall of this year, so definitely new music coming sooner rather than later! For the English one, we’re expecting a release for the third half of 2014. The music has been coming out great—I’m just so proud of the work that I’ve been doing and the people I’ve been working with. It’s really coming together and I’m really excited for people to hear this music. I don’t think a lot of people will expect the material, so I’m anxious for them to hear!
Going back to La Voz Kids, these contestants are experiencing fame and a lot of things for the first time. Lets go through your firsts! Do you remember your first crush?
My first crush was in elementary school. I don’t remember her name anymore—actually I don’t even remember her face anymore [laughs]. I never really got to know her, but I do remember seeing a girl in elementary school that I was dying to talk to, and I never got the chance to talk to her.
What about your first kiss?
It was in junior high school. I think I do well with kisses! [laughs]. All the girls have told me that I do well with the kisses—I think it’s the big lips. Thank God, right?
First time you used your singing skills to get a girl?
It was in sixth grade. I remember I used to always sing an Usher’s “U Remind Me.” I would always sing that song to the girls I liked. It was my go-to.
And did it work?
It definitely did—it still does! [laughs]
