In her quest to break into the English-language market, Noelia is preparing to release two singles in the near future…
The 32-year-old Puerto Rican singer/songwriter will release two singles to radio simultaneously from the English-language album she’s been working on with music producer/singer Timbaland and composer Sean Garrett.
Noelia plans to release the single “Exploit” in the United States “Spell” in Europe in three weeks.
“This production makes my greatest dreams come true,” says Noelia about her eighth disc, her first in English. “it’s a joy and an immense achievement that I’ve been praying to heaven for so much.”
The album, which is still untitled, will feature a wide range of musical styles, including pop songs and ballads.
“Up to now we have recorded seven songs and he (Timbaland) wants to keep working,” said “Kiss Me” singer.
Once the recording is wrapped, Noelia and Timbaland are planning a promotional tour of Latin America, Europe and the United States this summer.
The idea of a collaboration with Timbaland, who has worked with Justin Timberlake and Madonna, quickly evolved after he ran into Noelia in the hallways of the studio where she was recording “Kiss Me.”
“We started out recording a single, and that was the beginning of a close friendship and we kept working until we made an album and finally we’re now going on tour together. It’s been an amazing experience,” the daughter of singer Yolandita Monge recalled.
Noelia’s already finding success with “Kiss Me,” which is sung in Spanglish and features Baby Boy.
“It’s a song he did awhile back. I changed the lyrics and it’s doing really well on radio in Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United States and South America,” she said.
Timbaland, meanwhile, says English-speaking audiences will be pleased with Noelia’s latest studio effort.
Her “excellent taste in rhythms and magical charm of the voice pierce the surface,” and this album will bring the public a Noelia it has never heard before, he says.
