The Dominican singer-songwriter Covi Quintana, nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2021, presented this Tuesday “De: ti para: mí”, her fourth studio album, in which “La cura” stands out, cataloged by the artist as the most important song she has ever recorded because it touches on his “private life”.
The 15 songs on the album are authored by Quintana, who reported that the production is on all digital platforms.
“I’ve always tried to keep my personal life private, but the truth is that my songs are a reflection of me. ‘The cure’ is exactly that, my freedom,” said the “Soy Dominicana” singer.
Quintana, accompanied by her guitar, dressed in black, with boots and her perennial black hat, of course, thanked the presence of “many of my friends”, as well as producers and other music professionals.
“This is a very personal album, it takes me to that freedom that I had for a long time because I wanted to do it, because I feel that my songs heal, heal, make them cry, make them fall in love, make their boyfriends throw away (…) it was time to give him the full heart of pop”, said the interpreter.
The album includes “A sunken boat”, “I almost died”, “With you please”, “Desahogo II”, “A shitty excuse” and “Capa de polka dots”, among others.
“I have the bad habit of looking for you in songs, maybe that’s why everything I write talks about you. Today a new phase begins, it’s time to tell the story backwards. From now on, I want everyone to listen to the songs that some day will be ‘From: you to: my'”, he highlighted.
Born 30 years ago in Santo Domingo to Spanish parents, Estefanía Covadonga Ruiz Quintana is one of the best-known artists in the Dominican Republic.
Her songs have positioned her on Spotify’s top viral lists in Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Argentina, Guatemala and in her country.
In 2021, she became the first Dominican woman to receive a Latin Grammy nomination in the “Best Songwriter Album” category with “Mañana te escribo otra canción” which ranked among the most listened to albums on iTunes and Spotify in the Dominican Republic.
In addition, she was the first Dominican female singer to appear on the screens of Times Square in New York, when she was chosen as the representative artist for Spotify’s “Equal” campaign.
