MONOGEM is a young artist bringing a new R&B fusion in English and Spanish to the music industry. Her success demonstrates that quality music can be made for the new generations.
AL DÍA spoke with the singer about her expectations, dreams, challenges and projects in the new year that is loaded with music.
The Mexican-American artist creates music that taps into the bilingual senses of all Latinos who have decided to migrate to the United States. However, the task has not always been easy.
"The hardest thing for me is to find a good balance between English and Spanish, while remaining authentic and true to who I am," said the artist, who always wants to make sure she stays connected to her English-speaking fans, as well as Hispanics.
MONOGEM, who decided to embrace her Latin heritage in 2019 with her debut Spanish-language single "Soy Lo Que Soy," says that the best thing about making this kind of music is her ability to "connect with people through music."
"The best thing about making music is when it reaches a perfect stranger and resonates with them. There is no better feeling," the artist said.
With her most recent album Gardenia, the first she released entirely in Spanish, MONOGEM is also looking to connect with a new international audience.
For her, the best advice she can give to new artists is to always make music they love.
"You are the one who will have to perform that music for many years to come. If you don't like it, what's the point?" said MONOGEM.
On stage at LA3C
On Dec. 11, MONOGEM had the opportunity to perform as Maluma's opening act at the inaugural LA3C festival in Los Angeles.
"LA3C was literally a dream. It was my first time performing on the main stage of a festival. After so many years playing in clubs and touring smaller venues, it was an absolute pleasure to be part of such a big production," the artist said, emphasizing that it was exciting for her to play songs from Gardenia on that kind of sound system.
In 2023, she hopes to continue making lots of new music, playing more festivals and shows nationwide to bring the duality of her music to more people.
