Over production from Jay P Does It (Anitta, Isabela Merced, ECKO), she jumps between English and Spanish lyrics with undeniable confidence and uncontainable charisma. Her delivery ignites the instantly irresistible hook as she presents a bold bilingual bop about falling back into a relationship you know you shouldn’t.
Turning up with tens of millions of streams and attracting an enthusiastic fan base independently, she’s readying more music for release very soon.
As a singer, songwriter, dancer, and performer, Angelic Montero represents anyone who grew up between cultures. The daughter of Venezuelan immigrants ultimately discovered herself by absorbing her family’s culture and popular culture in equal measure. Growing up in a humble, yet “very loving” Miami neighborhood, she fell in love with music during block parties. Salsa, bachata, and reggaeton often blared through the streets until well past midnight as Angelic fell asleep to those traditional Latin sounds just outside of her window. At eight-years-old, she stole her mother’s phone, sang in the bathroom, and made a video. Impressed, mom shared it with a friend who worked as a vocal producer. Soon after, Angelic found herself in a professional studio for the first time. Recording a show-stopping take on Katy Perry’s “Roar,” she exploded on YouTube, attracting 2 million-plus subscribers for a series of viral covers. Gaining traction, she relocated to Los Angeles with her family, and an unforgettable showcase landed her a deal with The Heavy Group and Republic Records in 2019. Right out of the gate, her single “Cater 2 Me” quickly neared half-a-million Spotify streams, while Angelic’s debut mixtape You Get Me? established her as an artist to watch. The Miami-born and Los Angeles-based artist has racked up tens of millions of YouTube views and streams by not only bridging musical styles, but traditions as well. Now, she only strengthens this bridge on a series of 2021 singles for The Heavy Group/Republic Records kickstarted by “9 Times Outta 10.”
