Carmen DeLeon’s explosive new single, “Mala Memoria,” is out now via Capitol Records/Universal Music Latin Entertainment. She wrote the track with frequent collaborators Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres (Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”), who also produced.
“‘Mala Memoria’ is about that type of relationship that is very intense, that you feel you can still fight for. Forgetting the stuff that is bad and seeing the possibility of living to make new, good memories,” says Carmen DeLeon.
DeLeon gives an emotional performance of “Mala Memoria” in the official video, which was directed by JA Moreno (Andrés Calamaro, Karol G x Vogue, Steve Aoki and Farruko).
The 21-year-old singer/songwriter recently collaborated with Thyago on the new single “Solo Quiero Bailar.” She will be performing at Riverland Fest in Cangas de Onis, Spain on July 14, Ruido Fest in Chicago, IL on August 19, and Coca-Cola Flow Fest in Mexico City on November 26.
With her effortless charisma and extraordinary talent, the Miami-based artist is a truly global pop phenomenon. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, DeLeon moved to Tampa at age nine, then lived in Barcelona for five years until her family relocated to North America, where they spent time in Mexico and Los Angeles before settling in Miami. Through it all, she’s immersed herself in the musical landscape of each new city, steadily building the bilingual vocal skills and boundary-breaking appeal first glimpsed on her 2020 debut single, “Volverás,” which was produced by Tainy.
“Juegas,” her collaboration with Latin GRAMMY Award winner FEID, “Cafécito,” “Pasado,” Featuring Cali y El Dandee, “Mariposas,” “Bésame Bonito,” and “BBB” followed. Hailed by Wonderland Magazine as “a force to be reckoned with,” DeLeon has amassed over 33 million combined global streams in her career to date. “Mala Memoria,” which is sure to be a summertime smash, introduces a new era for DeLeon, who is quickly becoming one of the most exciting forces in Latin pop.
