Latvian Pé ventures into merengue with

Singer-songwriter, actress and new powerhouse in Latin music, Latvian Péreleased her new single, “I’m afraid”, in which she talks about female dominance in a relationship, this time accompanied by the Dominican artist Calacote, the producer who won 28 Grammy and Latin Grammy awards Eduardo Cabra and the Mexican producer Tonga Conga.

“It is a song that shakes and shakes in all its angles, from what it narrates about a woman who exalts her for her impropriety, but who has not the slightest intention of diminishing her, to giving her an incisive stamp within the arrangement. It is a song made for my loud people, effervescence for those who need it and inspired by my Caribbean people, that wherever we go we stir up the atmosphere”, explains Letón Pé about the inspiration behind the single.

“Tengo Miedo” originated from a social experiment that Cabra conducted during the week of the 2022 Latin Grammys, a statement about how quickly content is consumed in today’s world. Participating artists paid one dollar to record a song produced by him as long as they could record the song in 15 minutes. The original version of the song generated a lot of buzz, leading them to reconnect and make an extended version, the only song from this project to have a full version with video.

Later, Letón Pé and Calacote met on the beach in their home country of the Dominican Republic to bring the dynamic mambo and bold lyrics to life through a video directed by Juanca Paulino. “Exploring autochthonous rhythms has been a constant aspiration, as long as I did it from a frank perspective and with the fluidity to intersect with what I had already been doing. The strength of Calacote’s atypical and bizarre performance, the ingenuity of Eduardo Cabra in the production together with Tonga Conga, and we find the ideal archetype to consolidate this galactic mambo,” says Letón Pé.

The dynamic track brought together Letón Pé y Cabra, who is globally acclaimed as one of the most innovative creative forces in Latin music, having recently appeared on his EP Martínez alongside other notable guests such as De La Ghetto, Vicente García, Elsa and Elmar, and Ambar Lucid, among others. Recently, he debuted at SXSW as an official artist at multiple showcases, including KEXP’s Radio Day Stage and El Sonido. In recent years, he has also performed at important world festivals such as Isle of Light (Santo Domingo) and La Mar de Músicas (Cartagena). Earlier this year, he appeared on Rolling Stone’s 10 Latin Acts Set to Make it Big in 2023 list, cementing his status as the Dominican Republic’s next big pop star.

“I’m afraid” is available on all digital platforms.
