Michael Medrano is shining a light on sexual fluidity…
The up-and-coming Latino pop singer is hoping to bring forward an important discussion about the often-taboo topic with his latest single.
Medrano has released his new track “Fluids,” a pop jam all about shifting sexual preferences.
With heavy-disco production from Zak Leeverand a flowing lava-lamp-inspired lyric video, the singer relives a drunken escapade where he sees someone he likes and acts on his feelings. “You’re way too pretty to be hooked on all these limitations,” he sings.
In a statement to Billboard, Medrano says that the song was inspired by his experience at this year’s L.A. Pride, where he “kissed a couple girls, kissed a couple boys,” and then woke up the next morning with a hangover and a melody stuck in his head. “A couple minutes with my piano and the voice notes app and ‘Fluids’ was born,” he says.
The singer added that he knows the world often doesn’t understand the importance of embracing fluidity, so he wanted to approach it with a light-hearted touch on his new track. “Sexuality isn’t black and white, it’s a colorful spectrum with a lot of in-betweens that we should be okay with exploring,” he says. “I wanted to send that message into the world and have fun doing it; I think ‘Fluids’ does just that.”
