“Distancia” is set to be released during the end of the month, it’s a song that weaves seduction and disconnected love, blending R&B, Latin Pop, Hip-Hop, and Electronic music. The touches of traditional Flamenco pull listeners into a dance with the fusion of cultures that is today’s music.
The song’s fresh sound, which marries Latin and African-American urban music, in Spanish and English, emerges from the collaboration of LA music producer, songwriter, and artist Marcus “Bellringer” Bell, whose credits include Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Timbaland, and more, and Spanish artist and music producer, Cristina Malakhai, the rising star of “Distancia,” who has charted #1 in iTunes Spain.
The lyrics capture the complexities of two people and two worlds that are so close, yet so far apart. Deeper than romantic love, it expresses the tension between the human desire for connection and the complicated ways we perceive ourselves as separate.
