Last year, the reggaeton pop musician Isabella Lovestory released her debut album Amor Hardcore, which came after a couple years worth of stray singles and EPs. Today, she’s releasing the one-off track “Latina” ahead of a just-announced North American tour — dates for that here. “Latina” comes along with a music video she directed with Hugo Matula.
The track is “a song about the empowerment of being Latina, as well as redefining the nuance of this empowerment,” she said in a statement. “Tongue-in-cheek and playful, it’s a song that celebrates being Latina without being cliche and ‘dove commercial’ about it. It’s a commentary on the tokenizing of latinidad, reclaiming the uniqueness and poignancy of every experience each Latina has.”
