Carin Leon is preparing for his first date…
The 33-year-old Mexican regional music singer, composer and guitarist has released his new single “Primera Cita.”
The single, the first track from his upcoming album Colmillo de Leche, spotlights his soul-deep raspy vocals and his ability to convey feelings through his songs and melodies with more traditional Mexican sounds
Leon conveys his passion for R&B and soul on the track.
“This song was a surprise for us since it was an experiment for our Tiny Desk recording — we made a little soul and fused it with regional Mexican to create something exciting,” he recently told Billboard.
In the track, he wistfully sings, “I saw you, and you looked at me/ At the beginning, it was a joke/ Then the truth comes out we exchange smiles/ Some time passed, just under an hour/ And under the table, your heel touched my boot.”
