The Monotonía interpreter spoke about the new musical rhythms and songs in which the Spanish language predominates: “It is the people who rule. That's why age doesn't matter. the gender, the condition, the language. What matters is whether an artist connects with his audience through music.”

With I congratulate you, for example, the idea of ​​the robot in the video was from Sasha, and the idea of ​​the fire was from Milan.”

The singer from Barranquilla moved to Miami, United States, after separating from the former soccer player, a fact that brought positive aspects to her musical career because when she lived in Spain she “I was unable to execute many of my plans.”
