The 24-year-old singer, who was nominated for Best New Female Artist at the 2018 Tejano Music Awards, spoke about her latest single in a Facebook Live video saying “We’re really, really excited about it. It was a song that meant a lot for me and for everyone that was involved in the process of making this song.”
“It was something very, very meaningful in the sense of it was a new artist and a younger generation doing a song that was created in the ’50s,” she added. “We were very, very honored in the fact that we were able to do that. It was a lot, a lot of fun. We are in love with it, I hope ya’ll love it too.”
The song was originally done by Latin Breed in the 1970s and the legendary band is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.
