Bella Dose is the world’s first Latina bilingual girl group. The quartet consists of Melany Rivera, Brianna Leah, Jenni Hernández, and Thais Rodriguez. Bella Dose comes through with the fierce anthem “Mírame.” Backed by a dembow beat with house music influences, the women sing in English and Spanish about bouncing back from heartbreak. The group shared in a statement that the song “marks the era after a breakup where you are finally realizing who you are because the person you were with thought you would be nobody without them. Instead, you are better than ever and realizing that you only need your own love to thrive.”

Camilo and Camila Cabello, “Ambulancia”

At long last, Camilo has released the music video for his song “Ambulancia.” The Colombian singer teamed up with Camila Cabello for his bachata-infused track.

Christian Nodal and Tini, “Por El Resto De Tu Vida”

With a bit of Latin trap in the mix, Nodal and Tini trade verses about taking a blossoming romance to the next level. On the inspiration behind their collaboration, Nodal told LATINA, “All of us at some point in our lives, or several, feel so in love that we only dream of spending the rest of our lives with that person. It’s about celebrating love in the most genuine way, the same love I also feel for all of you, my fans, whom I love so much.”

Immasoul, “A Tu Lado”

Immasoul proudly represents her Black identity in her music.
