ALEA RELEASES NEW MUSIC & VIDEO
“YA NO TE PUEDO QUERER” (I Can’t Love You Anymore)- THE ELECTRIC NEW SONG WITH PANAMANIAN SINGER-SONGWRITER SEBASTIAN COLOMA
Alea, the Colombian born/Bronx based singer songwriter had a breakout year in 2021 after releasing her debut album Alborotá. Alea’s vision spans ten diverse tracks that breaks the traditional Latin music mold. The album uniquely blends Latin folklore inspired by cumbia, porro, currulao and huapango with pop, afro and savory Latin grooves filtered through her personal lens of strength, feminism, and perseverance, which earned spots on Rolling Stone’s “best albums in Spanish” and NPR Alt.Latino’s best albums of 2021!
Alea returns with a new collaboration on “Ya No Te Puedo Querer,” a collaboration with Panamanian singer-songwriter and composer Sebastián Coloma. The song is full of energy and anguish that narrates the moment in which a love relationship reaches the breaking point of no return. Featuring a bouncy Latin beat, electrifying guitars, and vibrant vocals from both artists, the song captures a brilliant mix of genres and sounds in a hymn to heartbreak.
Sebastián Coloma is a new singer-songwriter and composer from Panama, born in Venezuela and based in Mexico. His music and lyrics are best described as an eclectic fusion of styles, rhythms, and melodies from the Caribbean, Latin American folklore, and other popular genres, giving his songs an unmistakable Latin flavor.
“Ya No Te Puedo Querer” was born from Sebastian’s personal experience, and he began to write it in New York City. The song has a diverse sound, fusing elements of Latin pop, flamenco, milonga, and rock, to give it movement and energy. Sebastián states that “it is a song of heartbreak, which speaks from a perspective of resignation in the face of a breakup and with a certain degree of anger and indignation at what happened.” Alea tells us that working with Sebastián was an incredible experience, despite the distance, since the song was produced in Panama, and some parts in New York. “Ya no te puedo querer has been one of the most significant collaborations for me. Also because I feel like it came at the right time in my life when I most needed to hear that message. Many times we find ourselves in situations with people that we do not know how to let go of, and accepting it is the hardest part. I think that I can’t love you anymore speaks of a breakup but also of a liberation, of that strength that you find in yourself when you know that love is no longer served at the table. Writing the lyrics was liberating! I loved the song from the beginning and to see how we were able to develop it so lovingly from a distance was a beautiful experience.”
