DaniLeigh is getting back to her Latin roots…

After making a name for herself in the music industry, teaming up with artists like Chris Brown, G-Eazy and DaBaby, the 25-year-old Dominican American singer/songwriter returns to her roots in Tainy’s latest song, “Falta.”

DaniLeigh

Also teaming up with up-and-coming artist Kris Floyd, the three artists lace their unique sound to bring a mellow, captivating fusion between R&B, reggaeton, and hip-hop.

“Falta was inspired by my desire to merge R&B with reggaeton and to find that feeling with the melodies,” the Latin Grammy-winning producer said in a press release. “Kris and Dani’s tones combined with those reggaeton beats came full circle.”

On the track, DaniLeigh flaunts her Spanish-singing skills for the first time, singing about an old flame who cheated on her.

No haces falta, por eso no te he escrito / Lo hiciste con otra y no fue tan rico / Baby, tú ni has sido mi favorito / Ahora sé que perdí el tiempo contigo,” she sings.

Floyd then shares his side of the story, accepting his errors and trying to win her back.

In true DaniLeigh fashion, the artist shows off her killer dance moves in the music video directed by Michael Garcia and featuring all three artists.
