We had the pleasure of interviewing MAR over Zoom video!

MAR was born in the United States, but her Latin blood and warmth run strong through the veins of the young singer-songwriter. Mexican from her father and Cuban from her mother. She grew up in a home full of love for the arts, she began developing her skills by taking piano lessons from the age of six and then focusing on vocals. Steps that led her to her great passion: composition.

In addition to her passion for singing and music, MAR has also worked in the modeling world since she was 13 years old, participating in countless fashion shows in Los Angeles, New York, and Mexico.

Her first performance as an artist on stage took place in 2013, in Anaheim, California, a key event to reaffirm her vocation. Between 2014 and 2020, MAR participated in a hundred concerts and international tours throughout the American continent as part of her father’s, the beloved Mexican singer-songwriter and Latin music legend Marco Antonio Solís, show.

After many years of preparation, experimenting with rhythms, lyrics and musical styles, MAR broke into the world of music with her solo release "QUÉDATE". A pop-urban style song with a melody that can hook any heart and swing any set of hips.

MAR recently released her newest single “Calavera”, alongside the official music video!

On this episode, we had a chance to hang out with Mar Over Zoom video. What we found out in the very beginning of the interview was that Mar's sister is Allison, who we've also interviewed. It was, it was awesome. So we got, you know, Allison's perspective of growing up, being born and raised, where they, where they lived. And then of course Mar, who is like a year younger. So you can hear Allison's version of their upbringing and put it against Mars, which has some similarities. 2 (2m 6s): Obviously they came from a very, very musical household. Their father is the legend, Marco Antonio Solis. So they have music in their blood. Obviously started singing at a very early age, Marlon Piano. Also at a very early age. She talked about performing with her sister, recording a song for her dad's tribute album, covering one of his songs with her sister Allison. And all about a new song she just released, which has gone completely viral. Her first ever released as a solo artist. It's called K that day. She put the music video out and it has six over 6 million views already. 2 (2m 48s): So the song is just killing it. Check out the music video.

If you follow and subscribe to our podcast, wherever you listen to podcasts, 2 (3m 25s): We're bringing it backwards with Mar. 4 (3m 28s): Okay, 2 (3m 30s): Awesome. Thank you so much for doing this. So talk to me, where were you born and raised? 4 (3m 34s): Thank you so much. I was born and raised in California and it is, I feel like very highly populated with a very, I mean half Hispanic, half American, a very, a very Mexican culture as well. So I feel very, very at home. My dad is Mexican and I feel that with my music I'm able to, to do music in Spanish and in English and that type of a fusion because it's what has come so naturally to me. And I know that there's a huge community where I'm from that next to that where we feel very Hispanic for the American community and very Americanized for the Hispanic community. 4 (4m 17s): So that's kind of where I, I would say I kind of fit in. 2 (4m 20s): Very cool. I, I'm from San Diego originally. I moved since about a year ago to, to Nashville, Tennessee. But I grew up in San Diego, so right there on the border. All of our streets are in Spanish. I mean, it was like, you know, you picked it up quickly, it was like kind of a second language. Absolutely. 4 (4m 37s): Yeah, definitely. I mean I actually grew up speaking Spanish pri primarily and then I went to school in English. So it, it became very important for me to be able to communicate English obviously, because everybody was speaking in English. But, but yeah, I hear that everybody that's moved to Nashville never wants to come back. 2 (4m 59s): It's beautiful here and it's a little less expensive, I can tell you that much. The weather isn't as good, but it's fun. 4 (5m 6s): Well, I've heard the people are just so lovely and so, so loving and genuine. 2 (5m 11s): Yeah, it's definitely a different vibe. People are Yeah, it's it's got that southern charm for sure. 4 (5m 18s): Yeah, I love that. 2 (5m 19s): But it's great. So grew up in a, a very musical household. When did you start, Were you singing early? Did you learn an instrument early on? Like, tell me about your musical upbringing. 4 (5m 31s): So I'd always grown up in an environment in which music was a constant. It was never, you know, absent from my day to day, wake up with music playing in the house. My dad is recording in the studio or then we're going to like, I'm going to go see his rehearsals for a show or accompany him at a show cause he's a performer and he's been an enormous influence on, on my magnetism towards this art. And I feel like it just, it came so naturally and like almost inevitable for me to, to find, to be curious about this form of expression about playing an instrument. So at five years old I began to play the piano and I performed at local theaters. 4 (6m 14s): I would take little dance classes. I also took various other, like I I I experimented along many other facets of creative expression, also sports. And so my parents were never forcing this, like forcing me to follow this path. If anything, they've tried to like warn me against how difficult and how demanding it is. But it has just, when I discovered that music for me was a very healing and medicinal journey of like self awakening and, and awareness and to my conne, my connection to the divine, to the world around me. And it helps me find my place within that scheme. 4 (6m 58s): The, the grand scheme of things and like how I can contribute. And so I, I think that little by little I, I had become more understanding of how, I guess like, almost like spiritual, the journey of being a musician is and how sacred and what an honor it is to be in the position where I can create and that I have the basis and foundation of a piano to produce music. And I, I'm, I'm always writing, I'm always looking to expand, to grow, to evolve and move forward and see how I can, I can bring us back to love. I can remind us of our inherent nature in any way possible. Cuz I think that every emotion is a color and a facet of love and it is so beautiful to be able to recognize and express that within what I make. 2 (7m 48s): I love that. I love that. With, with the piano, were you, you said you're writing early on and you're doing, you're playing out as at young age too, sounds like. Yes, 4 (7m 58s): I would play, I would play the piano in like local theaters, little dance shows as well. I was very timid as a kid though, so I, I didn't, I didn't really perform. I ne I don't think I performed singing other than outside of like a choir concert or like at my church at the time. 2 (8m 16s): Sure. 4 (8m 17s): I was a kid. And, but those things really build your character and they do teach you so much. And I think over time, thankfully I have like gained so much love, respect, understanding for myself when it comes to respecting the journey, the phases that come with choosing a career path that, that is so important to you. Like this is my entire world. So I, I just wanna make sure that I'm doing things to the best of my ability. That I'm, that I am doing the right thing, that I am improving somebody's somebody's world around me. 5 (8m 60s): When you don't want your busy evenings to signal the end of dinner time exploration, try blue aprons two or four serving menu plan.

The voice of the proceeding commercial was not the actual voice of a winner. 2 (10m 30s): I, I think that's really special. And you were saying that, I mean, to, to grow up in, in a household where music was such a big thing. And it's interesting cuz I've heard this from other artists that have, you know, grown up in, in the industry so to speak, where it's their, their parent will kind of not wanna push them towards it or kind of be like, Oh, well maybe there's some other things that you could just because of the nature of it, right? I mean it's cutthroat, it's all subjective if people like your songs or not. It's, it's not like there's some, it's not like being a doctor where, you know, if you get to this level then you, hopefully you do this and there's no real plan like cookie cutter plan and no fallback. 4 (11m 13s): It's totally, I probably, well it's an enormous risk, an enormous, and you never know how they're, how, how people are gonna react to your work if they're gonna like it to be open to constructive criticism, but also have thick skin and know how to filter out like what is not constructive and just like straight up hateful. But, but it's exciting, you know, it's, it's really, really exciting because you, you're also understanding in a way like the psyche of a human and like how everybody is, how each of our perceptions play like such an enormous role and the foundation of all that is. 4 (11m 56s): So it's, it's really, you know, I have a lot of respect for, for everybody that has connected with me, that has forwarded me, that has, you know, I I think that the people kind of guide us to where we need to be, but we, we also know exactly like what we're capable of and what we have to offer and, and what our message is. 2 (12m 18s): Sure. You must have got some validation early on, I would imagine like that you were kind of on the right path. Was that like, do you remember like early performances or people just being like encouraging, like, you know, you were actually really good at this, you should continue, your voice is awesome. Like, were you getting any of that as a, at a young age? 4 (12m 39s): Yeah. When I was a kid I was like, I would, I was very shy, but when I would sing in front of my friends, excuse me, they would, they would always tell me that like they really moved that they would, that I is something that I should pursue, that I have a nice voice, this and that. And I never, it took me a while to really, like, I think you, there have been so many synchronicities since then that have pointed me towards this career path because there have been moments of doubt where I'm like, am I built for this? Am I made for this? Am I capable? Am I, there's not. But when you know, you know, and like you, you can't, you can't stray yourself away from what is destined for you. 4 (13m 23s): And I think that when the universe provides you with opportunities over and over and over again to do this that you feel so drawn and called to do, it's, it's, it's a sign that you that you must 2 (13m 38s): No, I completely agree. I think I, I think I was talking to your sister about numerology. Does that make sense? Yeah. Because we, I forgot what she said, but it was like totally, I interviewed somebody that was, is a art musician in that was way in a numerology and then I started doing all this research on it and I think it's so interesting and I think there was some tie that she had to her music and I wonder if you had a similar experience or is that something you're also interested in? 4 (14m 5s): Yeah, when it comes to numerology, I, you know, it's something that I'll like read, but I don't, I don't necessarily like 2 (14m 14s): By too far into it, No, 4 (14m 17s): I actually do, but I'm not, I'm just not, not super, super, super aware of what I just know. My life path number is one. 2 (14m 25s): Okay. 4 (14m 25s): Number one is it's, it's calling you to be a leader and to your authoritative power and to stand your ground to stand firm in your truth and your power. And I think that's so, so important as, as well, I mean, for anybody to do. Sure. But especially in this industry, like I feel that oftentimes you are being in so many directions that you're not sure if you know, like what you know to be fulfilling and and wonderful to your soul to, to on like a, on a very profound level. 4 (15m 6s): You don't know if that's like the right move, 2 (15m 9s): Right. 4 (15m 10s): But it is, it always is. 2 (15m 14s): It is a trip. Like I I'm a life path 11 or Yeah, 11 and which is like some super rare one and so is my son. Oh 4 (15m 22s): My God. You're you're the, you're a, 2 (15m 25s): Yeah. Isn't that crazy? My 4 (15m 27s): God. 2 (15m 28s): And what's the other number? The, the life path and the other first number on a nine, I can't think of the name of it. It was also some, it was what is, it 4 (15m 38s): Would be so number. 2 (15m 40s): Yes, it was nine and like the person I was talking, I was like, oh my God, like this is crazy. And then like I finds out my son is on 11 and like, like you just do all these, like, all these weird connections start to like formulate, It's like it's too far. Like my mind just gets blown too much getting into it. Right. But like, it is interesting 4 (16m 0s): Dude, when you're, when you think you've, you've gotten a grip on it, it's like you're, you're just reaching the bottom mountain, 2 (16m 7s): Right? It's so wild. I just found that interesting cuz I, I've just in hearing you speak about music and in your experience in music reminding me Oh yeah. I think Allison was talking about that as well. And do you, did you guys grow up singing together or, I know you had, you did a few songs together right? Early on. 4 (16m 26s): Yes. So we, we had always grown up harmonizing the house, jamming out together. It, it's just very, it just became very natural to us. And it sounds really, it's kind of funny because when we were kids, we grew up with high school musical and Camp Rock and like all these Disney shows are based around like an artist and music. And, and so we started singing like harmonizing to high school musical songs together and then we harmonized to other songs together and then she would play, Dan and I would play like the congas or we would swap around and just mess around. And then my dad really loves the way that we harmonize, so he invited us to be a part of his, actually Universal invited us to be a part of his a tribute album. 4 (17m 10s): Yeah, it's a lot of artists. One we scared at that, a lot of incredible artists that I admire so much. We were probably I think like 15 at 15, 16 at the time that we recorded it. And so yeah, we recorded that cover together and then on another occasion, another, we were just jamming out, we were playing one of my dad's songs called Don, which is a song that when we were kids would make us, it would just bring us to tears without fully understanding how profound it, it, it really is. And it was just crazy to, So we were in, in Mexico and there's a piano and I, I start playing the piano. 4 (17m 55s): My dad comes with like some moras my, no with the guitar. My sister comes with some moras and we're like, Oh my God, like let's, let's record this remix. So we made a flamenco version of a song that is more, that's a ballet, like a classical ballot. And those are the two things that we have, we have done together in the past. And it just was, it was just so natural and it, it just, I believe that when things flow so naturally, like you should ride the wave. But at the same time, we both have these thinking in Spanish, this like deep desire to, to pave our own path in as soloist, to create, to create what resides within us and, and what we express, what we want to express to the world through our music. 4 (18m 45s): Cuz we have very different styles from what my dad does. And it's so exciting to finally see that little by little we're, we're paving our way and figuring out more and more every day who we are and our mission. 2 (18m 58s): Yes. And, and I I think that's, yeah, you have a similar sound to each other, but you're definitely on two different paths when you re listen to what you've released and what she's released. It's to, it's, it's completely different. And with that, like, when did you guys, or were you always kind of working on your own solo thing or always had the, you know, you always wanted to be a solo artist and independently I guess from each other. Was that something that you, or did you kind of wanna be a duo? 4 (19m 28s): Well, so I, I wanted to be a duo. I was really, really, I really wanted to, I thought it would be a great move. I thought that both of us would have, well for many reasons I just thought it would be something that would allow both of us to have an incredible time to thrive and to enjoy each other's presence, to learn from one another. And she's, she's actually the, the one who initially said like, no, like I have, I wanna do my thing. And of course she's absolutely killing her. She's, she is so creative and I'm so happy to see her evolving as an artist, as a human being. 4 (20m 7s): The things that I've heard in the studio that she hasn't released or like a whole nother level, which is so exciting cuz I'm like, we can't, I don't want, I just want the world to hear all of this. It just takes so much time to curate something that is going to really move an audience. And it's exciting to see that we're both doing really well in our, in our own lanes. And at the same time, I mean, we live together so it's not like, it's not like our, our dynamic of like singing together and, and jamming out and, and helping each other when we're creating is gonna die out because we, we literally work in the same studio right next to each other with our 2 (20m 47s): Husband. Oh, I didn't know that. That's, that's amazing. 4 (20m 50s): We sleep in the same bed every night, so it's okay. 2 (20m 54s): I love that. That's crazy. I did not know that. She didn't tell me all this. 5 (20m 58s): When you don't want your busy evenings to signal the end of dinner time exploration, try blue aprons two or four serving menu plans.

Hey Nissan, how do you get to the 9 (21m 60s): Top? Calculating proceed to 1959. Take a hard left in East Africa at the seven day one Safari rally fear, right? For 19 off-road championships in the Baja Desert.

And the capability to take you anywhere. This is the new Nissan. 4 (22m 28s): Yeah, I mean it's just our, it's our dynamic. So I don't think, I don't think the idea of like creating something in the future would, every di we're 2 (22m 39s): Definitely, It sounds like you're still kinda doing that on your own path, right? Yeah. Like kind of helping each other anyway. Behind the scenes. Exactly. 4 (22m 47s): Because no one's gonna be more brutally honest with you than your sibling. 2 (22m 52s): Right, Right. 4 (22m 54s): We need that feedback and 2 (22m 56s): Yeah. You, she can tell you anything. I'm sure it'll be crushing I bet. Or cut deep, but it's like, well she's my sister so that's what it, she's kind of there for 4 (23m 6s): You. Just know it's never gonna be like Ill will or 2 (23m 9s): Right, right. She's just saying your best intention. Right. Or for you. 4 (23m 14s): Yeah. 2 (23m 15s): Wow. Do you remember like, what was the first time or when was the first time that you came out and, and you sang your own song or performed your own music and and where was that? 4 (23m 26s): Yeah, so that was so recent. So recent. It was, so June, it was June, sometime in June I opened my first show ever in front of a good quantity of people. I'm not sure exactly how many people were there, but it was like an auditorium and it was Louise Fonzi show and a band called Drake and it was in the Dominican Republic. And so the crowd, the moment, but I was expecting for it to be a whole nother story. I thought I would have to get there and lift up the energy and get them moving, get them going. They were already up here from the moment, from the moment I like stepped out without, even, without the song even starting because I started my set with a very iconic Dominican song called Oopses. 4 (24m 19s): They went crazy. And, and after that I sang my song and I, and people came with their posters with the song name with, with like, I Love You Mar. And I've never seen that in my life. So I was just so, like, I wanted to cry. I was ecstatic, blown away in deep gratitude. And, and, and I heard people singing this song for the first time in my entire life. So it was just 2 (24m 45s): Oh, so the audience was already singing back to you? 4 (24m 48s): Yeah, and that was the, that was the craziest part for me because I was like, I I just didn't expect that at all, at all. I've, I just, I didn't even anticipate it cause I'm still just starting off and I've only had one song out. So the, you know, I thought I was gonna sing. It was gonna be completely quiet and that type of thing and get them used to it and see if they like it. But I heard people singing the song. So, and then in about two weeks ago, I opened Danny Ocean's show and I heard a good amount of people singing the song cuz in, in Guadalajara where I sang it, it's number one on the radio. So I was just like, 2 (25m 28s): Wow, 4 (25m 29s): This is real, this is really happening. It, that's when it really hit me. So it's just, there's no feeling that compares to that. I was like, in doubt. I was like, am I actually, you know? 2 (25m 40s): Well, did you see the number, I'm just curious cause did you see the numbers on the, on your song on YouTube before doing these shows? So did you release a song and it, and it like did its thing? Yeah, yeah, yeah. And so, well tell me about that. So you put the song out, obviously just, okay, well here's, here's my first song. Yeah. And here's the video and I mean, it's just out there in the, the internet and then it starts to, you know, obviously blow up. Like what was that experience like? 4 (26m 12s): So unexpected. Like I can't even, I can't even tell you. I, I was so nervous about releasing this song, I was very hesitant and I was like, I don't know, like this doesn't, I I just, I feel like I was so in my head about it, like, this, this needs to fully represent me as I am and this needs to blah, blah blah. Just so like complicated. I was just, and then there came a point where I was like, dude, snap out of it. Like just, just put something out there, put something out there. Cuz I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to, to releasing music because I, I just, I'm a perfectionist. I wanna make sure that it's really encapsulating what I want to, to, to bring forth into light what I want to, you know, bring into the world. 4 (26m 60s): Yeah. And 2 (27m 0s): So, well it's you and your, your words and your brand. It's like everything. It's you just being super vulnerable and being like, okay, here's the song and then it's every, like we were talking earlier, everyone's subjective opinion to how that lands is outta your control. 4 (27m 17s): Totally. And so not only that, but I felt so much pressure and nervousness due to my dad's like, impeccable like career path legacy. Sure. He has done such an incredible job of, of maneuvering himself within this industry, of being vulnerable, of being authentic, of being so deeply like rooted within his craft and his art. 2 (27m 43s): And he's a legend. I mean, he has a star in the Hollywood rock, you know, Rock of Fame, doesn't he? 4 (27m 50s): Yeah. So these, 2 (27m 52s): That's, 4 (27m 53s): He caught up. So in my mind I'm like, I know he, there are people that are expecting something of me that isn't who I am. That's kind of something that I was kind of, you know, I, there's just a, there's just a lot that plays into that that kind of goes through my mind before I release anything. So I was just very, very, very nervous and very kind of on edge when I released it. Trying not to think too much. And then next day I'm, it has like a, a solid amount of views and the next day, even more, the next day even more within like, I think like a week and a half, it was like at a million views. It was mind blown. And then I would get the, cuz I'm, I'm on my YouTube account, I get notifications just like that. 4 (28m 36s): I'm playing your song in the cafe all day. Like, I love, like this, this really move, like brought so, so much light into my life and this and that, just like the most beautiful comments. And I'm like, oh my God. Like I would've never expected for this to have flown so beautifully. And I'm so grateful and so honored to have an opportunity to connect with people that, that want to connect with me, that, that do enjoy what I'm doing. And in such a, such a short amount of time, the amount of people that connected was just surreal. Absolutely surreal. Just felt like a dream. 2 (29m 14s): That's so cool. That's so incredible. And, and like, even just going back to your dad, like just being in that situation, right? I mean, people might have an expectation of you or it's, oh well her dad's so, you know, famous or whatever. And I've, and I've interviewed other artists like Sophie Simmons, her dad's Gene Simmons of Kiss and she is an incredible song. She's written all these hits and you wouldn't have known, but it's, it's like in the, you know, it's in your jeans and that's what you grew up with. And like no one gives like pushback to athletes whose parent is a, you know, superstar. Why does, I don't understand how it comes back on on artists and musicians, but it doesn't sound like that landed in your lab. 2 (29m 57s): I mean, to to put your song out, your first one and then have it do less. When I looked at it, when I watched the video earlier, it was like 6 million something views. It's like, 4 (30m 8s): It's unreal. I thought it was gonna stay at like a million max. I thought, I was like, oh my god, we peaked. Like we peaked, we made it. 2 (30m 16s): Yeah. But it's growing and growing and growing. 4 (30m 20s): It's just unbelievable. It's unbelievable. I believe that when you act from a space of love and an openness and vulnerability, the universe rewards that brave for you because oftentimes it, it takes a lot of courage and it's not, it's not an easy thing to do. But when you, when you cross that line and you, and you're just so secure in, in your, the faith that you have within what you're doing, I think that the response is, is magnified and the reflection of, of that feeling and of that trust. So that has been the most gratifying experience of my ears so far. 2 (30m 60s): That's incredible. Is the song something that you shared with, with your dad at all or do you, do you show him your, you or your sister, show him the music you're working on? Or do you kind of let those two worlds stay apart? 4 (31m 14s): So I've been working on music this entire year. I have a, I have an album ready that I'm going to show. Oh wow. I'm gonna show everybody in my team, in my family next week, so 2 (31m 24s): Oh, are you nervous about that? 4 (31m 26s): I'm so nervous, but I, I I don't show, I usually don't show anybody until I'm like, it's pretty much fully ready cuz when you show somebody a demo or like a rough draft of what you're trying to create, if you're not producer or if you don't have a musical ear, oftentimes like you, you can't hear beyond what is there and 2 (31m 51s): Right beyond the surface of the whatever demo scratch tracks that you're putting on there. 4 (31m 56s): Exactly. So I like to do, I'm excited, I think they're gonna love it. And then with this song, I actually didn't show my dad, my team did. And cuz they, cuz they knew I was really nervous about releasing it and I didn't know they were gonna show him. I thought he was just gonna hear what it came out and they sent me videos of him in the studio and he was just gro and having such a good time and he, he really loved it. And that for me was such a pleasant surprise and super, super gratifying. Like, I, I, there's nothing more, I mean I feel like his opinion to me is like I place it on a pedestal so to, to it was just such a, such an immediate relief and and peace for me. 2 (32m 42s): Yeah. He's gotta be such a proud pop having him, you know, both his daughters doing or two his daughters doing this and being so successful at it. 4 (32m 52s): Thank you so much. I hope, I hope to make them proud. That's the goal. 2 (32m 56s): I'm sure you are. I didn't you have, or at least excuse me from what I remember, you know in the conversation I with your sister, the song on the tribute on your father's tribute album, didn't you have a similar experience or it was something with the song you did? Like can you tell me about that? I can't remember. It was something with either the song you guys covered or he was in the studio. I can't remember what it was, but wasn't there something special that happened that day too 4 (33m 26s): With 2 (33m 28s): It was just, yeah, 4 (33m 29s): It was just, I mean he wasn't, was he It was just so long ago. Oh, 2 (33m 35s): Okay. 4 (33m 35s): He was in the studio and I remember, I mean what I love about him is that he's not, I mean he's not a perfectionist and I've noticed that that is probably my like biggest not weakness, but I, he, I remember when we were recording the song, we recorded it in like one, two or three takes max and he was like, Leave it like that, leave it like that. And we're like, no, no, no, I don't like, I wanna fix this, I don't like this. And he is like, no, like you have to understand these things are so like valuable and important and like it shouldn't be perfect. Nothing should ever be perfect. 4 (34m 16s): And I just thought that was that, that always stuck out to me cuz he's recorded many tracks with, you know, not seeking perfection, just not seeking perfection and seeking to transmit. And so that to me was like heavily, heavily important and it resonated with me until this day. But yeah, both of the songs they just searched so naturally, the creation, the process of, of recording songs and just to have 'em there or to guide us and to mentor us is is just such a, such a beautiful experience. 2 (34m 53s): Yeah. In value one. Imagine just having somebody that's that success or in that, in that space just to say hey. But I mean obviously also terrifying. Like there's a song like what do you think? Don't, don't trash it. You know what I mean? But like, it sounds like he's so, so supportive. 4 (35m 13s): Totally. He's always been so supportive of everything that we do and he's never imposed, he's never tried to make us steer towards like one direction or do something that he's wanted us to do. He's always let us fly with our own wings and supported that, that flight, that journey. And he's, he's just a very wise, noble, transparent man. Like everything that he says and does comes from such a beautiful space within his heart of, of just honoring those around him, respecting those around him. And there's nothing more that I could ever ask for. 2 (35m 52s): I love that. You said you have a album of songs done. Is it all, is it Spanish? Everything? 4 (35m 59s): It's actually mostly English, this album, but, but I do have a single coming out next week. I think it's next week, September 2nd. 2 (36m 8s): Can we talk about it? This'll come out after. 4 (36m 10s): Yeah, yeah, yeah. This song is called, it's sort of a 360 from gu because, because get at there is all about this like, not, not necessarily love at first sight, but connection at first sight where you're very intrigued if you a your system magnetism. And it's just that feeling of like wanting to get to know somebody a little more while this one is about once you've already, this song is, I would say, a very empowering song for the ladies. It is, it is a breakup song, but it's kind of like a song in which both of us are like on the same page and it's sort of just reclaiming and stepping back into your power back into who, who you truly are and yeah, it's, it's, it's, it's quite different from the previous one but I think, I think a lot of people are gonna enjoy it. 2 (37m 12s): Amazing. Do you have a video for it? Cuz I love the video that you did for Kid at day where it's like, at the beach scene, you got the guy and you're in the water and like, do you have a music video as well? 4 (37m 22s): Thank you so much. I do, it's it's probably gonna come out the week after the song I'm assuming, but we do have a video. We recorded it in Miami and 2 (37m 32s): Similar beach vibe or is it a different 4 (37m 36s): It's the same vibe. It is. I mean I'd rather be surprised, 2 (37m 44s): But, Okay. 4 (37m 46s): A lot of, I don't know, it's just, it's, it's very different. I would say 2 (37m 51s): Very different. Okay. I love it. Well, I cannot wait to hear that song. I, the, like I said, what you're doing is awesome. I'm looking forward to this album that once, once your dad gives a green light, not that he needs to, but I think that's so cool that you and your sister are so close and she was a great chat and this has been so much fun and I really appreciate your time today, Mar, thank you so much. 4 (38m 17s): Thank you so much. Thank you for your time. I just noticed this picture in the background that I painted of him when I was a kid. 2 (38m 23s): Oh, is that what that was? I was gonna ask you. 4 (38m 26s): Yeah. My god. I just realized it's like, it says my favorite daddy. 2 (38m 33s): That's awesome. I love that he's on a stage with the lighting and everything. 4 (38m 38s): So 2 (38m 38s): Cute. That is so cool. What about those other ones right there? Did you draw those as well? 4 (38m 42s): No, these are just, these are, it's my mom, my sister and I, we 2 (38m 45s): Oh, 4 (38m 46s): Probably got at a 2 (38m 47s): Festival, so that's that. Yeah, I was gonna say that looks like, like some Disney land drawing those people that like, come sit down and we'll, we'll, we'll draw you as whatever. 4 (38m 58s): Definitely one of those 2 (39m 0s): Character artists. I love it. All right, ma, I have one more quick question before I let you go. Do you have any advice for aspiring artists? 4 (39m 11s): Absolutely. Believe in yourself. I know everybody's gonna tell you the same thing, but you need to, you need to know how valuable your creations are and that everything has a place under the sun. Everything is worthy of being brought forth into the light. And a lot of people need your magic. They need, they need your unique touch because each and every one of us is a combination of experiences and perspectives and stories and, and moments that only we carry. And I think that's what separates us from, from anybody else, is that, that that inner magic and world that we've created based upon those moments and experiences and perspectives that we've, you know, that reside within us. 4 (39m 57s): And so I think that it's so important for you guys to share your magic, to share exactly who you are, to be firm in your uniqueness, stand in your power, and know that when you act from a space of love, as simple as it sounds, the universe has your back and it, it will protect you and it will move you forward as much as it possibly can. If you're working with, if you're working with the divine, they got you. I mean, I mean if you're working and taking action towards your dreams and you have faith in the divine, they got you. I promise you that
