This simmering late-summer heat is no match when it comes to heating up the room like Latin-pop artists MellyQueen and Skyzz do on their fresh track, “Lento y Pegadito” — available now!
Driven with poppy composition, enticing vocalizations, and some undeniable musical magnetism, the two Toronto-based multi-talented artists soar beyond the stratosphere with their newest single — and first collaboration.
“When Skyzz and I met, we shared a great connection and an overall chemistry,” MellyQueen recalls. “We really wanted to create a song that captured that fun, heartfelt, and feel-good energy we share off-camera.”
“Lento y Pegadito” ignites these vibes ablaze; tied together with the track’s accompanying video, audiences are treated to witnessing the pair’s electric creative chemistry first-hand. “Unlike its title, the love for this single has been quick and expansive among the Latin community,” Skyzz says.
“Through this experience, we were able to work as creatives — learning from one another, and creating an amazing final project,” MellyQueen continues. “Knowing this was our first collaboration, we spent many days perfecting the lyrics, production, and video to showcase the beauty behind this project.
“We believe we have created something different and special for our audience.”
To that end, the two Toronto-based artists have grown increasingly known for creating musical magic for their audiences within their own respective careers for some time now.
Skyzz is an award-winning Latin-pop, Afrobeat, Hip Hop, and alt-rock singer/songwriter from Belize. From his first grasp of a pair of drumsticks at a young age, to being named CJ107’s Most Talented Performer in 2017, Skyzz is known for his scintillating blend of vigorous passion and infectious persistence — all wrapped within deeply healing and relatable lyrics derived from personal experiences.
Produced by Alix Veliz (“Dancing Kizomba”), Skyzz’s 2021 forthcoming debut EP is set to include a selection of his new and original singles, such as “Bésame,” “Let Go Let Love,” “What Do You Want,” “Congratulations,” and more.
Specializing in Latin music, MellyQueen fuses Spanish and English lyrics effortlessly — garnishing her productions with a dazzling dashes of pop and reggaeton.
While she released her first single, “Goodbye,” in February of 2020, this indie artist is no stranger to music and the creative process; MellyQueen has been making music since a young age — learning to write lyrics and create melodies. She prides herself on her ability to inspire her listeners while leaving them with a feeling of buoyancy and willingness to get on their feet and dance.
