WEBWIRE – Friday, February 18, 2022
Colombian artist Gloria Goyo Martinez from the Latin GRAMMY®-award winning and GRAMMY® nominated trio, ChocQuibTown launches her solo career with HBOs Latin GRAMMY®-award winning series EN LETRA DE OTRO and a studio album of the same name, which will be available to stream on HBO Max on FRIDAY, MARCH 4. Today, as a preview to the HBO Special and album, Goyo releases her debut solo single and video Na Na Na.
Na Na Na fuses the rhythms of Caribbean dembow with club-ready arrangements and Goyos wordplay, as she sings the empowering lyrics of a woman who is willing to walk away from a relationship that isnt centered on faithful love. Filmed in Miami for Kree8 Productions, the music video gives Goyo her long-awaited chance to demonstrate her charisma, energy and glamor as the focal point of the visuals.
Produced by Sony Music Latin and Kree8 under the direction of Simon Brand, the HBO special features Goyo in the first female led En Letra de Otro music special to cover personal favorites – from Tito Puentes Oye cómo va, to Shakiras Antología, and Ella Fitzgeralds Summertime transporting us to the vibrant landscapes of her native Condoto in Chocó, Colombia. In between the stunning and elaborate music numbers, Goyo offers a glimpse of her history and influences, including the origin of her nickname, her fathers love of salsa, her rise to international recognition with the band ChocQuibTown, and her obsession with Shakira.[p”En Letra de Otro is a dream come true. Sharing part of who I am through the music I grew up with is beautiful. Seeing my family, my aunts and cousins also taking part in the production fills me with happiness, said Goyo. Condoto is the root, my essence, and without that root, I wouldnt be fulfilling the dream of presenting a solo project, but with the soul and blessing of Chocquibtown.[/p]
A post premiere red carpet screening and Q&A moderated by Billboards Leila Cobo, in celebration of the special will be hosted by the Miami Film Festival on Monday, March 7th.
Goyo was previously featured in HBO Latinos concert special Piano y Mujer (2021), available to stream on HBO Max. The En Letra De Otro series has previously featured artists like Farruko (2019), Gente de Zona (2018), and Pedro Capó (2017). Other HBO Latino music specials available to stream on HBO Max include the 2021 GRAMMY® winning Juan Luis Guerra 4:40: Entre Mar y Palmeras, Diego Torres Sinfónico (2020), Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour (2020), or Santana Corazón, Live from Mexico: Live It to Believe It (2014); as well as the Havana Street Party Presents collection with concerts by Orishas (2019) and Beatriz Luengo (2021).
