LOS ANGELESMarch 21, 2023PRLog — Singer-songwriter Jessica Medina celebrates both Women’s History Month and the beginning of spring with the release of her bachata-ballad “Morir Soñando”.

“Morir Soñando”, which happens to be a refreshing drink traditionally from the Dominican Republic made of milk and orange juice (similar to an orange creamsicle), was written by Jessica Medina and Leon Yamil.  The song, which was produced and arranged by Latin Grammy-winner Janina Rosado, connects all our senses to the flavors, aromas and emotions of returning to Medina’s ancestral lands.

“Morir soñando” will be included on Jessica Medina’s upcoming EP Rosa, which is set to be released next month.

“As a mother and woman in the music industry, it is very important for me to build a community, to hold a space for healing, creativity and expression. That’s why it was essential for me to work with women in this EP,” comments Medina.

Last month, Jessica Medina released “Locura”, the first single of Rosa. With this EP, she dives deeper into her Dominican and Puerto Rican roots as well as different types of love from a woman’s perspective. Rosa also features women in all aspects, from its composition and musicians to its graphics, musical arrangements and production.

“Locura” was composed by the award-winning composer Alex Cuba and was recorded in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
