Riela is a Latin artist that I’ve been playing for the past week. Her new single move has been in heavy rotation for me the past couple of days and it should be in yours as well. This Miami raised in Los Angeles-based vocalist dropped an impressive six-track EP last October entitled “Tranquila y Tropical.” Riela’s Music palette is broad as her sounds span from reggaeton to upbeat traditional pop and r&b. Although most of her lyrics incorporate Spanish she throws in a little bit of Spanglish every now and then. In an interview she stated growing up she was inspired by the disco sounds in Miami and artists such as Ja Rule, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Selena, and Sade. I believe she will be one of the next Latinx and R&B artists to take the American mainstream by storm similar to what Rosalia and Kali Uchis have, she has that much potential.
