The Story Behind Each of the Songs on Sofía Reyes's Debut Album
It's hard to believe that until Feb. 3, Mexican singer Sofía Reyes didn't have an album. How could that be possible when she has already given us so many hit singles to dance to ("Muévelo," "Contigo (Rest of Your Life)") and cry to ("Solo Yo" featuring Prince Royce)? It's true! But Sofía's first full record only means one thing: there's so much more to come from her!
"I started working on this album about three years ago, which is a long time to work on a record. I'm a little nervous, I'm not going to lie. But I feel like it is the right moment," Sofía said when we caught up with her over the phone a few days before the launch of Louder!. "I've written maybe 100 songs. When I moved here, I had no idea how to do that. It's been a very interesting process for me. I feel like with this album, I found myself as an artist."
What did that process involve? Finding a sound, but also a message. "All the songs in the album have a positive message for me. The album is called Louder!, because our positivity should be louder than our negativity. When I hear the songs in this record, that is what I feel," Sofía said about her debut.
Straight ahead you'll exclusively find the stories behind each of the tracks that made the cut — from how the lyrics came to be to how Sofía added a Latin touch to selecting collaborators like Wisin, Reykon, and Prince Royce — all straight from Sofía herself.
