Fifteen-year old Cuban-born, Miami-based singer, artist and dancer MaluTrevejois turning up the heat with a brand new, bilingual single that sees the multi-platinum powerhouse teaming up with Cuban reggaeton superstars Gente de Zona. “Nadie Como Yo” (PRESS HEREto stream/download), out now via BMG, is a pulsing, infectious dance-floor ready track with a bright and vibrant video to match.
“Nadie Como Yo” translates to “There’s no one like me” and it’s something of a personal theme song for Malu. She hopes it will become the same for her fans. She dedicates the perseverance anthem to her legion of more than 8 million loyal social media followers from around the world who have watched her effortlessly push boundaries and transcend genres and cultures.
Malu credits everything to personal strength earned by triumph in the face of trials and tribulations. Born in Cuba and raised in Spain, she moved to Miami with her mother at just twelve years old following her parents’ separation. Noticeably skinny for her age and faced with the demand to rapidly learn and speak English, American school provided a new set of challenges for her as she endured relentless bullying online and in real life for her low weight and thick accent. Allowing her haters to become her motivators, not only did Malu teach herself English, she utilized social media to express her biggest passion: music and performing. She released a string of videos on Music.ly which quickly went viral, garnering millions of followers. After teaming up with Miami based management firm, “THE Group,” Malu‘s breakout debut 2017 single “Luna Llena” skyrocketed to instant success, amassing over 70 million views, achieved RIAA Latin Platinum status, and reached the Top 20 on the Billboard Top Latin Songs chart. “Luna Llena” would be the first of several singles to rack up millions of views and streams, including her feature on HRVY’s “Hasta Luego,” leading her to become a live force with concerts around the globe.
“Everything I went through made me strong,” says Malu. “I’m the person I am right now because of it.“
About Gente De Zona
As the first Cuban-based musical act to ever top Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, Gente De Zona, the duo consisting of Randy Malcom and Alexander Delgado, pioneered the “Cubaton” movement that is now one of the dominating forces in the global musical landscape. Malcom and Delgado first came to international attention with their 2014 hit “Bailando” alongside Enrique Iglesias and Descemer Bueno. The track not only topped Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart but served as the longest-running No. 1 in the history of the chart at that time. With an array of chart topping-singles like “La Gozadera” featuring Marc Anthony or “Ni Tu Ni Yo” with Jennifer Lopez, the Latin Grammy and American Music Award winning artists have won numerous Premios Juventud and Premios Tu Mundo Awards for their musical excellence. Just last year they performed their first ever U.S. tour and signed to Sony Music Latin and continues writing their history in music under the guidance and representation of March Anthony’s Magnus Media. This summer, they shared their latest single “Te Duele” to rave reviews and will playing stages around the world throughout 2018.
