Tiago PZK – Nos Comemos

The titan of the new wave of urban music coming out of Argentina, Tiago PZK, and global Latin music icon, Ozuna, join forces today and release a new single titled Nos Comemos — an epic collaboration that promises to become a global hit.

The raucous new single “Nos Comemos,” a throwback reggaeton stomp penned by Tiago PZK and Ozuna, was recorded in Miami and Buenos Aires and produced by studio wizard Big One. The song’s eye-catching video directed by the fast-rising newcomer Martin Seipel was shot in April at a gas station and on the streets of Miami. The video relates the tale of two groups – one led by Tiago PZK and Ozuna – and the other comprised of female drivers with whom they end up challenging to a 2 vs 2 race on which everyone will bet everything they have.

“This collaboration came about in a very natural way,” says Tiago PZK“I went to Miami after having performed in Las Vegas at the Latin American Music Awards. That night, I went to a BRESH party and there we met Ozuna. We hit it off, exchanged phone numbers, and I shared the song with him via WhatsApp. That same day in the afternoon, he already had his verse recorded. I think the result was very good and hopefully people will like it.” 

Tiago PZK’s career continues to grow by leaps and bounds, demonstrating his formidable talent and astonishing versatility when it comes to composing and performing his songs. Armed with resounding success in Argentina and now, globally, as well, Tiago makes debut duet with an international artist, the first of many.

Last night, Tiago took the stage at the Premios HEAT Awards from Cap Cana, Dominican Republic where he performed his hit collaboration with Bizarrap“Bombona” (BZRP Session #48) and took home two awards in the following categories: “Best Artist Southern Region” and “Best Video” for global hit “Entre Nosotros Remix”. Prior to this performance, he also performed “Entre Nosotros Remix” live for the first time at the Latin American Music Awards 2022 with Maria Becerra and LIT killah, receiving rave reviews and being the most viewed of the night. In addition, he performed at Vibra Urbana in Las Vegas and had impressive performances in Mexico in May.

Currently, the rising superstar coming out of Argentina is putting the finishing touches on his first studio album coming soon under Warner Music Latina/ Grand Move Records.

Paulo Londra – Chance

Argentine superstar, Paulo Londra, is once again making waves worldwide with the release of his second single since his return to the music scene titled “Chance“. The song and its official video are available on all digital platforms HERE.

“Chance”, written by Paulo Londra and produced by Federico Vindver, continues to demonstrate the phenomenal musical versatility of the cordovan artist, who once again dives into a different musical style. The lyrics of the song tell a story of love at first sight, in which the protagonist is captivated by a girl after meeting her in a bar and asks her to give him a chance to convince her. The music video, shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina, follows the storyline that unfolds throughout the lyrics of the song.

The song comes two weeks after the successful release of “Plan A,” his first single with which he began his new stage on the courts, breaking records and which took over the No. 2 spot on Spotify’s Global Chart in just hours of its release, becoming the first Latin song to takeover that position by an Argentine artist without a collaboration. In addition, he became the first Argentine artist to enter the Top 10 of the two most important Billboard charts globally (No. 3 in the Global 200, which excludes the United States, and No. 8 in the Billboard Global 200).

Interview with Maria Becerra

Maria Becerra, or “the Girl from Argentina”, is an up-and-coming pop star, who despite only being 21 years old has become Argentina’s most-streamed artist. Starting off as a YouTuber, she quickly rose to fame and is now signed to 300 Entertainment (Young Thug, Meghan Thee Stallion.) 360 got the opportunity to talk with her about her life and rise to fame.   

  1. How would you describe your style of music?

I think that I have a very melodic and versatile musical style. In the studio, we always try to ensure that each song has a varied melodic line, with different nuances, that above all… sounds familiar to the public. I have [traversed] several genres and in all of them, I was able to find how to make my style fit. I heard out there that they call me “The queen of weeping” [laughs] because I have many songs that are for dogging and dancing, and others that are a bit sad.

  1. How did you first become interested in creating music?

From a very young age, art was important to me. I learned how to sing, act, and dance. In my house, [we] listened to a lot of music. For a while I did covers and interpretations of famous songs, I think I was absorbing that and at one point I felt the need to start expressing myself with something of my own and I did. I was not 100% sure, I had many insecurities, I was afraid to know how… [people] …were going to receive my music, and also if this was really my path. Luckily things turned out… [positively] …and today I have no doubts that yes, I was born for this and I am very happy [making a] living from music.

  1. Which songs are you most proud of?

Mm, they are all special and fill me with pride. You can’t say just one. If I have to think quickly… [about] …which one I like the most, maybe… “Close to You” or “My Debility.” That song is very special. I cried a lot while making it and recording the video.

  1. You were a Youtuber before becoming a singer. How was the experience of transitioning from an influencer to an artist?

It was a beautiful experience, and I am grateful that it was like that. The change in my life was… [immense]. Being [on] YouTube gave me the opportunity to get to know me and lose my fear of exposure. …having had the experience of being a YouTuber served as the basis for everything that happened to me later.

  1. What is your favorite fan moment?

My favorite moment is when… [fans] …tell me… that my music… [is relatable] …to them. It’s amazing how something I do with all my love in the studio can reach so many people and positively influence their lives. ….we would…talk to …different fans, and at one point a girl told us that with “Tell me how I do”, one of my songs, she had declared her love to her girlfriend. I found it beautiful. Those moments fill me with happiness.

  1. How does it feel to have reached this level of popularity so young?

I still don’t think… [I’m famous]. It seems incredible to me, but I take it easy. I do not despair and try to have the same life as always. I surround myself a lot with my friends, my family, and my pets who are my ground wire and remind me of where I come from.

  1. Why do you refer to yourself as ‘The Girl from Argentina’? 

In general, it is known that many discoveries have occurred accidentally in the world, and this was no exception. [laughs] When we recorded “Animal” with Cazzu, at last, in the part of the song’s guidelines I said “Las Nenas de Argentina”… referring to the two of us. Apparently, people heard “La nena de Argentina” and everyone loved that I refer[red] to myself that way. From there I started to use it as my brand, and I feel that it gives me a special power for transmitting to everyone that my music is made and is from Argentina.

  1. Who are your influences?

Wow, many! But especially Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. I think they are very important to me. I watch their shows and videos a lot.

  1. How did it feel to join a label as prestigious as 300 Entertainment?

[It was] an honor, I am very happy with them. They are also always very affectionate with me. Since their office is in Los Angeles, we don’t see each other that often, but when we do it’s very nice because they always surprise me. I know the whole team takes care of me and they want the best for me, so I respect them and thank them very much.

  1. Your most recent EP blended many different genres. Which genres would you like to experiment with in the future?

I like “Bachata”, I think more songs like… [that] …are coming, but as I said before, I don’t want to pigeonhole myself and today I am here to experiment. So, in 2022, you can be surprised. 

  1. What can we expect to see from you in the future?

I feel like it’s going to be a great year this year. We are working to make it so. I’m locked in the studio; some songs are coming out that are tremendous. I am already anxious for you to listen to them, so a new album is coming, trips and several shows in Argentina and Europe. We will be on the move. We hope to reach many places and have everyone dance and sing my music.

SPOTLIGHT ON MARÍA BECERRA

María Becerra is a tour de force. The Argentinian songstress, known as “la nena de Argentina” released her second EP in 2021, embracing and experimenting with hip-hop, reggaeton, trap, R&B, salsa, and more to craft her new sound. Described as a “leading voice in Argentina’s urban pop movement,” Becerra is a star on the rise. As the first Latin artist signed to indie American record label 300 Entertainment and with a Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist pending, it is clear despite her successes already, she is only just beginning. She sat down to answer a few questions for 360 Magazine including how she got her start in music, the story behind her nickname, her influences, and what to expect from her in 2022.

How would you describe your style of music?

I believe I have a very melodic and versatile musical style. In the studio, we always try to ensure that each song has a varied melodic line, with different degrees of nuances. Above all, we aspire to make a melody that sounds familiar and enjoyable to the public. I have experimented with several genres and in all of them, I was able to find how to make my own style fit within them. I hear they call me ‘the Queen of Weeping,” which makes me laugh. I have many songs that are for dogging and dancing, and others that are a bit sadder.

How did you first become interested in creating music?

From a very young age, art was important to me; I learned how to sing, act and dance as a child. In my home, we listened to a lot of music. For a while, I did covers of famous songs as I learned. I think I was absorbing different music and styles to the point where I felt the need to start expressing myself with my own works. Despite this desire, I was not 100% confident in my abilities yet and had many insecurities. I was afraid of how the public would receive my music and doubted if this was my true path. Luckily, things turned out in a positive way. Today, I have no doubts that yes, I was born to create music and it brings me a lot of joy.

Which songs are you most proud of?

Mm, they are all special to me and fill me with pride. It is difficult for me to pick just one. If I had to choose one, my first instinct is to say Ademas De Mi or Mi Debilidad, that song is very significant to me as an artist. I cried a lot while making it and recording the video.

You were a Youtuber before becoming a singer. How was the experience of transitioning from an influencer to an artist?

YouTube was a beautiful experience, and I am grateful that the opportunity was a positive one. The change in my life was progressive over time. Being on YouTube allowed me the chance for people to get to know me, while I gained confidence and worked on my own fears as a public person. Obviously, my life and my career are now on another path but having the experience of being a YouTuber served as the foundation for everything that has gone on to happen in my life.

What is your favorite fan moment?

My favorite moments are when my fans tell me everything in my music speaks to them. It’s amazing how something I pour so much love into in the studio can reach so many people and positively influence their lives. In live concerts, we would raise up different fans to speak with them, and at one performance a girl told us that with my song ‘Tell Me How I Do,’ she declared her love to her girlfriend. I found it beautiful. Those moments fill me with incredible happiness.

Maria Becerra by Christian Garfa 2

How does it feel to have reached this level of popularity so young?

It still doesn’t feel real. It is incredible to me, but I just try and take things one day at a time. I try to appreciate the small things and remain the humble girl I’ve always been because that’s still who I am. I surround myself a lot with my friends, my family, and my pets who are my rocks – they remind me of where I come from and who I am.

Why do you refer to yourself as the Girl from Argentina?

In general, it is known that many of the best discoveries occur accidentally, and this was no exception. When we recorded Animal with Cazzu, in the song’s lyrics I sing “Las Nenas de Argentina,” as if referring to the two of us. Apparently, when people listened, they heard “La nena de Argentina” and everyone loved that I referred to myself that way. From there, I started to use it as my brand, and I feel it gives me a special power for communicating to the world my music and I are made and from Argentina.

Who are your influences?

Wow, so many artists! I especially love and admire Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and Rihanna. They are very important role models to me. I watch their shows and videos a lot.

How did it feel to join a label as prestigious as 300 Entertainment?

I am honored and very happy to work with them. They have always been supportive, even affectionate, towards me. Unfortunately, their office is in Los Angeles, so we don’t have the opportunity to see each other that often, but when we do it’s always a special moment. I know the whole team at 300 takes care of me and wants the best for me, so I respect them and thank them very much.

Your most recent EP blended many different genres. Which genres would you like to experiment with in the future?

I like Bachata, and I think more songs like this are coming from me. Yet as I said before, I don’t want to pigeonhole myself. I love to experiment with different genres and different sounds, and that is what is important to me as I create music today. So, in 2022 you and all my fans can be surprised with what I come out with next.

What can we expect to see from you in the future?

I feel like 2022 is going to be a great year. My team and I are working hard to make it so. I’m locked in the studio, and many of the songs we are currently working on are tremendous. I am already anxious for people to listen to them. This year, a new album is coming, as well as trips and several shows in Argentina and Europe. We hope to reach many places and have everyone dance and sing to my music.

WYN 317’s new “Mystery in Little Haiti” Mural by SONNI from Quinn Edgar for use by 360 Magazine

WYN 317 Hosting Two Artists – CHNK × Sonni

WYN 317 debuted the latest works of not one, but two iconic artists this past Saturday night, July 10. CHNK and Sonni, presented at this double feature gallery opening. While munching on Frankenfurters Gourmet Dogs and drinking Deep Eddy Vodka the attendees got to experience two very different artists.

CHNK, a local artist, who takes everyday objects and adds his own twist with bright colors to add emotions and movement to the art, opened a pop-up retail experience, adding collectible merch and whimsy to WYN’s hip corner in Little Haiti.

Sprinkling in a little mystery, WYN 317 welcomed Argentina native Sonni, presenting “Mystery in Little Haiti ” a story of isolation, with the help of dry wit, humor, and pop culture references.

This boldly colorful double-feature will be running through Summer at WYN 317 and we would love to have visit the gallery to tour the two new installations at WYN 317.

About CHNK:

CHNK is a prolific mixed media artist from South Florida bringing complex illustrations, fresh color and an emotional perspective to deteriorating everyday objects. After his portfolio submission was rejected six years ago by Maryland Institute College of Arts, he decided to dedicate his energy to being the most active and self-improved creative he could be. Today his work has been featured in over 50 group shows and live art events nationally. CHNK has been a resident of Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) since August of 2016. CHNK is influenced by graffiti aesthetics, classic comic books, typography, grotesque raw emotional imagery, and social human interaction.

About Sonni:

Sonni was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied graphic design and worked as an Art Director for animation and film companies, he resides in Brooklyn, New York. In his art, he is constantly searching for that lost moment in adolescence where adventure makes dreams a reality, where the imagination and playing develop invisible forces to re-capture those lost memories from your childhood. He works with different mediums that include paper and pencil, illustrator, acrylic on canvas, and wooden sculptures. Yet, his passion is to paint murals in public spaces, finding that dialogue with the public through primary colors and playfulness!

He was dubbed CHNK by his father at the age of 11 during a graffiti jam in Fort Lauderdale. His works generally consist of spray paint, acrylic, ink, enamel, textiles and found objects. CHNK’s vibrant murals and commissioned artworks can be found throughout South Florida and online.

ABOUT WYN 317:

WYN 317 is a gallery designed to spotlight Miami’s unique urban landscape by providing a local’s touch. It’s an authentic space where fresh, up-and-coming, mid-career, and established native and international artists intersect with local legends. Highlighting aesthetics ranging from the area’s graffiti culture to a wide array of vibrant pop art influences, this exhibition and event venue takes pride in delivering art cultivated in Miami neighborhoods. WYN 317 provides a perspective that keeps you connected to the community.

Mena Garcia

By: Katherine Fleischman

Argentine-born “it” girl, stunner, and globe trotter Mena Garcia is in the process of launching her sustainable, vegan, and cruelty free fashion and beauty brands, as she searches to keep mother nature at the top of her priority list. Gone are the days of harmful damage to our beautiful earth as we move towards ensuring a green future and Mena wants to play her part in proving that fashion doesn’t have to be harmful to the planet. “In the past technology and the science of materials was limited to just niche sectors such as medical clothing, technical clothing, and sportswear. I’m here to put my spin on things and bring the fantastic technology we have to the forefront and prove that we can all wear sustainable clothing,” said Mena.

As scientists, researchers and designers join forces to try to reduce the carbon footprint that the fashion industry currently stamps, independent designers like Mena will be crucial to leading the way and showing fashion giants that if she can do it, so can they. “I believe we can really make a difference by using our voice on social media platforms and by setting online trends to really catch the attention of the largest fashion brands around the world. Independent brands like mine can truly make the difference here.” Mena, who has been modeling since her teens, has almost three-quarters of a million Instagram followers and this platform will undoubtedly help her cause. 

She talks passionately about using “waste from oranges to make silk,” or “pineapple leaf for a leather alternative” and spectacularly “agricultural waste bacteria.” As Mena continues to learn more, she’s using her education to find out interesting new ways to create sustainable fashion in a term she coins as “trash fashion” – using literal waste to create something new. “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure certainly comes to mind!”

“I’ve been studying with expert Mila at Estudio MG in a special collaboration with Closet Sustenable in Argentina. I’ve learned so much, including some incredible things. One of the main focuses is creating materials inspired in nature where cells and proteins are being used to create different types of real leather but in a totally sustainable, vegan and cruelty-free way.”

However, it’s not all smooth-sailing or simple. To be true to the cause, it is essential to be sustainable throughout the whole process. Everything from material sourcing, grading, dyes, and packaging needs to be clean and green. Mena said “I want to also make sure that workers during the production process are treated fairly, with respect, are safe, and paid fairly. To be truly sustainable, the entire process needs to be true to the terms “sustainable, cruelty-free, and vegan.”

Mena is certainly one to watch in 2021 and 2022. She says “it will take some time because piecing it all together perfectly is crucial, but I’m ready for the challenge and encourage everyone to join the cause! You can follow Mena on Instagram or her website for more about her modeling, image-consulting, and her upcoming brands.
