Afro-Latina Music Star Savina Releases "Closer"

No comments


Hondureña Reggaetón sensation Savina is turning heads in the Latin Music World. Savina was born and raised in The Bronx, N.Y. in the New York City Public Housing Projects, with ancestry from Honduras with a Garífuna background. Savina’s sound is so unique, as she brings Afro-Latina flavor to the Latin music industry, with a mix of Talento Catracho and R&B, singing in Spanish & English. 

Savina's rise in the music industry was very hard, because she lacked the support of friends & family, due to theft, jealousy, and betrayal. However, this only made her music stronger and inspired hit songs such as “Sorry,” “Closer,” & “Private Party.” All of her music is based on true stories and that's how Savina overcame her devastation.

Music is her life and she is on the road to becoming a Huge Garífuna American Superstar! Her new hit single is in heavy rotation on iHeartRadio, “Closer” Ft. Patty La Talentosa, and "Private Party" Ft. El Dollar - available on all major music streaming platforms.

FreeGuerrero Releases "Don't Hit My Line"

No comments

 


"Don’t Hit My Line" by FreeGuerrero is a song about wanting to move on but having your ex call you after the club or night out making it hard to resist the temptation. It’s about the frustration we experience when we’re trying to move on but they just won’t let us. All of that on a track with an 80s synth vibe to tie these ideas together.

My next EP project will have a lot of different sounds and vibes to it. “Don’t hit my line” was the first official release that feels like the direction in where I want to take my sound as I develop. A lot of my songs will be about relationships, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I often think to my self what would relationships look like had the cell phone not been invented.. Would we still write letters? Would we call landlines in the middle of the night? It’s hard to say but we can say that a lot of those text from our ex’s would not have been answered, those 2 AM FaceTimes would’ve never tested out willpower and maybe less hearts would have been broken. 

Tune in now to Latin Vibes Radio to listen to "Don't Hit My Line"

Rising Latin Star Baby Justin to Release ‘TRANKI45’ on SMÚSICA

No comments


You might have never heard his name before, but that will rapidly change!! Remember the name, you will continue to hear it in the years to come. Baby Justin’s first original single entitled Tranki45, will be released March 26th by Smùsica.

Tranki45 is a high energy, Dembow inspired Smash hit guaranteed to raise pulses. After putting in months of hard work in the middle of this pandemic, Baby Justin is ready to just chill and have fun and Tranki45 shows you how he does just that. The 118 bpm song grabs your attention and will make your body move. The preview on TikTok did just that, with over 500K views and more than 200 video’s recorded to the preview.

Of course the music video needed to match the high energy of the song. It had to show off Baby Justin’s Dominican roots. Smúsica spared no expense and decided to shoot the video to Tranki45 in the Dominican Republic, Atlanta & Miami. Tranki45 is just the first of many releases this year.

Baby Justin’s label Smúsica taught him about the powers of social media. He understood right away that in the middle of a pandemic, this was the best way to grow his fanbase. Baby Justin and Smúsica worked hard to raise his Instagram presence from 163 followers to over 20k within a few months and he amassed 50k plus followers within a few weeks on TikTok. The rapidly growing fanbase makes it clear that they can’t wait, to hear the music. And here we are, with the worldwide release of Tranki45 happening on March 26th.


More on Baby Justin
Carlos Sanchez aka "Baby Justin", is a 19 yr old rising international recording superstar. He was born in Los Alcarrizos, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, where he lived with his family until the age of 14. Baby Justin grew up with a strong passion for horses. His father was a very popular horse trainer who had the responsibility of maintaining top earning Thoroughbred Horse’s throughout the Dominican Republic. Baby Justin actually had big dreams of becoming a famous Jockey, but that dream was prematurely torn apart when his parents made the decision that would change the course of his life forever, that was the decision to separate. Baby Justin and his mother ended up relocating to the United States, where he found it very difficult to conform to the strict guidelines of his new school. This unrest eventually led Carlos to follow a different set of rules, the rules of the streets. This new life would eventually catch up and land him in prison for over two years. With nothing but time to reflect on his life choices, he began digging deeper into another passion he never gave much attention to, Music. As Carlos reflected on his life, he was actually very inspired by his cultural background. He was raised listening to Spanish music. Bachata, Merengue, Dembow, Reggaeton, had all been brought back to the forefront. He also realized a deep love for Afrobeat and Hiphop. After being released from prison, Carlos would start writing songs to all these different genres in his native tongue, Spanish.



Carlos had now set his focus on his music career. He started recording and collaborating with local artists and Dj’s. He used money made from his job assembling office furniture to pay for studio sessions. One of those sessions actually contributed to his artist name in a major way. It was a recording engineer that noticed Carlos when he was singing behind the microphone actually resembled a very popular entertainer in his earlier years. The entertainer the engineer was referring to was Justin Bieber. The engineer called Carlos “Baby Justin” in a teasing manner. Everyone in the studio started laughing. It was then Carlos realized the reaction of everyone to this comment. It was bold, it was positive, and last but not least, it was powerful. So of course, he took the comparison as a compliment. “Baby Justin” would become his artist name.

Baby Justin continued working hard towards being, not just an artist, but in becoming a “Superstar”. After trying to build with what he thought was a team, he noticed the other team players were lazy, unmotivated, and unwilling to grow. He needed some help to get to the next level of his music career, and that wasn’t going to happen in the circle of people, he was hanging around. A few months later, Baby Justin was introduced to a very successful music producer. The producer invited Baby Justin to start recording higher quality songs, by giving him access to a world class recording studio along with the video equipment needed to start making content. Baby Justin started recording new songs right away. He was eager to take advantage of this new opportunity.

Baby Justin learned how to record himself in order to keep up the fast pace he had set for himself. This allowed him to become self-sufficient and take full advantage of the opportunities given to him. At this time, he met up with the Latin music label Smúsica. The Smúsica team knew, that with hard work and dedication, Baby Justin would achieve his goals and dreams and signed him to the label, one week after meeting Baby Justin

FreeGuerrero Shares Immigration Story + New Single "Fantasma"

No comments

 


Born in Monterrey, Mexico, FreeGuerrero immigrated to the US when he was just 4 years old. When he arrived his mother wanted him to have the best chance at integrating so she didn’t allow him to be put in bilingual classes. "This move resulted in me having a funny accent that makes me feel insecure except for when I’m making music," he says. "I know other immigrants and first generation individuals have had a similar experience and I want to inspire them to take on that insecurity by using their accents to create their own unique sound."


His single "Fantasma" is about being haunted by the thoughts of someone you loved. It was inspired by a personal  experience he says would have destroyed him had he not had music as an outlet.

"I hope others that hear this know that you have to go into the painful emotions and deal with them if you want to make it out alive."

His single "Fantasma" is in rotation now on Latin Vibes Radio.
