Kali Uchis’ Latin music album has landed. The Colombian-American singer released Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) on Wednesday (Nov. 17). With the help of Puerto Rican hitmaker Tainy, she leans more into a reggaetón sound. Uchis also embraces her R&B roots in Spanish.
Uchis first teased the album to Remezcla last November at the Tropicália Music Festival. “It’s going to be exciting to reintroduce myself to my fans and give them a taste of what’s coming next,” she said. That first taste was the Tainy-produced single “Solita” in December.
In August, Uchis dropped the album’s first official single “Aquí Yo Mando,” her girl power banger with Rico Nasty. She followed that up last month with the radiant “La Luz” featuring Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Jhay Cortez. Her BFF Omar Apollo appears in the music video.
Uchis turned up the heat the day before the album’s release with the perreo-ready “te pongo mal (prendelo)” featuring Boricua OGs Jowell y Randy. On the rest of the album, she actually goes the R&B en español route.
“This album is full of genres that influenced my childhood and I’m so proud of the range of emotions and the nostalgia that it contains,” Uchis said in a statement. “I hope it brings you a bit of happiness as it brought me.”
Those fans who love Uchis’ signature R&B sound will not be disappointed. One of the highlights is the dreamy “fue mejor” featuring PartyNextDoor, who adds a sensual touch to the track. In any language, her soulful alternative music remains fascinating. She lives up to the Sin Miedo title, not afraid to take risks with her music and take it to the next level.
