Joyce Santana has released his new video for the track titled ‘Dormir Sola’. Meaning ‘Sleep Alone’ in Spanish, ‘Dormir Sola’ shows the heart of an artist amid the strength of the backbeat and the aura of the rhythm. Joyce has that sound that is signature in his style while still showing signs of budding to fruition. This is what I mean when I say you can capture an artist at that magic moment in his/her career. They have their style. Their sound. And now it’s about to blow up. Go global. This is where Joyce is. That moment of rapture within his music. Listen. Love. Learn.
Equally adept at crafting entrancing flows and sharp lyrics, Puerto Rico’s Joyce Santana is building a reputation as one of the island’s most versatile artists. Lost in contemplation as he makes his way to the woman he loves, Joyce shares the video for “Dormir Sola,” a highlight from his recent EP, A Quien Pueda Interesar. The song finds Joyce showing off his skill with easy melody, while he tells the story of how his statements of devotion are sometimes contradicted by his actions–she doesn’t want to sleep alone, and he doesn’t want to let her, but why is he still at the club? In the video, Joyce takes a long late night cab ride on a mission to reach his beloved, but things aren’t as simple as they seem.
“Dormir Sola” is one of three standout songs on the recent A Quien Pueda Interesar EP. With a title that translates to “to whom it may concern,” A Quien Pueda Interesar delves deep on the subject of modern love, switching between reggaeton and trap–with beats courtesy of producer Young Martino–as Joyce speaks on distinct situations in the project’s three songs. In addition to “Dormir Sola,” the EP features the banger “Besties,” which finds Joyce going back and forth with rising Puerto Rican phenom Young Miko over a ping-ponging trap beat, and “Tu Canción,” which details his regrets about the end of a recent relationship, with help from a blazing guest appearance by Amarion, one of the hottest artists in the streets of Puerto Rico. A Quien Pueda Interesar EP is available everywhere via Rimas Ent.
A Quien Pueda Interesar follows up another fiery EP, Nadie Se Salva, released in Summer 2021. Though it only spans 5 songs, the EP demonstrates Joyce’s striking versatility, moving from drill on opener “Heavy,” to trap beats on the closer “Mi Mentalidad.” Nadie Se Salva is home to “BabyMama,” which inspired a supersized posse cut remix. A fiery mix of reggaeton and modern R&B sounds, with guest appearances from heavy-hitters Farruko, Luar La L, Myke Towers, Eladio Carrión, and Ñengo Flow, “BabyMama” (Remix) already has over 5.1 million views on its YouTube audio and over 3.7 million streams on Spotify since its release in late December. In addition to Puerto Rico, the remix has reached YouTube’s trending chart in markets like Spain, Chile, Colombia, and Peru.
Joyce is currently preparing a new album to release later this year, and armed with his notebook of bars and a willingness to experiment, he’s ready to put the worlds of hip-hop and reggaeton on notice. Stay tuned for much more from Joyce Santana in the coming year.
A lyricist with a background in poetry and a love for all kinds of music, Joyce Santana is one of the most exciting emerging rappers to rise from Puerto Rico in recent years. With hits like the Twitter-viral “Vicky” and “BabyMama” under his belt, and co-signs from the likes of Farruko, Myke Towers, and Young Martino (the producer behind the megahit “Te Bote”), among many others, Joyce has a reputation for his thoughtful, braggadocious bars and flow that can tackle anything from reggaeton to drill to R&B. In 2021, the Rimas Ent. signee released his Nadie Se Salva EP, home to the buzzing single “BabyMama,” and with appearances from Darell, Luar La L, and many more. Stay tuned for more music from the rising rapper in the near future.
Joyce Santana finds himself lost in contemplation as he rides in a taxi on the way to his love interest, but with a shady driver at the wheel, the odds of him getting to her in time for their date get slimmer with each stoplight. One of three impressive tracks on his new EP, A Quien Pueda Interesar, “Dormir Sola” showcases Joyce Santana’s ability to create illustrious earworms, while he narrates a story of complicated devotion.
A Quien Pueda Interesar (To Whom It May Concern) zeroes in on the evergreen topic of modern love, effortlessly changing lanes between reggaeton and trap–with beats courtesy of producer Young Martino. The EP also includes the banger “Besties,” a collab with Puerto Rican phenom Young Miko, and “Tu Canción,” which details his regrets about the end of a recent relationship, with help from a blazing guest appearance by Amarion, one of the hottest artists in the streets of Puerto Rico.
Joyce Santana is keeping the fire going – with tracks like “Vicky” remix (1M+) and “BabyMama” (3M+) under his belt, and co-signs from the likes of Farruko, Myke Towers, and Young Martino (the producer behind the megahit “Te Bote”), he’s one to watch in 2022 for sure!
