Ivy Queen is switchin’ up her sound…
The 50-year-old Puerto Rican veteran reggaeton singer, rapper, songwriter and actress has joined voices with Peter Nieto for the salsa single “Pa’ Mi.”
Ivy Queen embraces Nieto’s rich, danceable salsa, performing it with a gusto to match his own. With both singers’ similar-range vocals trading off in the chorus, “Pa’ Mi” is sheer fun; a straight-forward salsa with an immediately catchy chorus.
“The lyrics caught my attention, and of course the musical arrangement was impeccable and denotes a lot of freshness. I was raised with salsa music and trio music, all this mixture and flavor always brings me sentimentally to my house”, highlighted Ivy Queen.
“I don’t consider Peter Nieto a new talent, I consider him talent, period. When
Nieto, for his part, stressed that “beyond achieving a dream”, by working with Ivy Queen, “it is a blessing to have the support and collaboration of a woman like Ivy”.
“Her strength, her courage, her magic, her talent and mettle make her giant and unique. Having the opportunity to sing a salsa song with the queen of reggaeton is already a success for me, and for the new generation of tropical music. Queen, there are no words to thank you, “he added.
The song was written by Nieto and co-produced by Jay Lugo.
