In her latest single, “Era De Cristal,” J Noa, the 18-year-old Dominican rapper also known as “La Hija del Rap,” delves into the depths of her mental health struggles. Directed by Lennyn Salinas, the music video captures J Noa in a poignant dialogue with herself within the confines of her room. Throughout the video, symbolic imagery emerges, notably when the artist is depicted submerged underwater, yet retaining a sense of composure, mirroring the complexities of her inner world.

J Noa’s trajectory has been marked by significant milestones, including her feature on NPR’s Tiny Desk in September 2023, coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month. During the same period, she earned her inaugural Latin Grammy nomination in the Best Rap/Hip Hop Song category for “Autodidacta.”
