Natti Natasha, Ready To Take Power With "Las Nenas"

Dominican singer Natti Natasha joined Farina, Cazzu and La Duraca to make "Las nenas", which has only one goal: for people to dance to it.

The Dominican singer joined Farina, Cazzu and La Duraca for this new single, which has only one goal: for people to dance to it. In addition, the artist talks about the importance of female empowerment.


Tell us a bit about “Las nenas”, your new release with Cazzu, Farina and La Duraca.

I am very excited about this collaboration, because it is the first time that so many women have come together on a single issue in the urban genre. I feel that it is a huge advance, because we wanted to show that women can unite, that we are not rivals, and that was very important to me. I had the idea to do this song even before I found out I was pregnant, so I focused on making it happen. I want people to dance it and enjoy it.

What was it like working with Farina?

I have always had a very good relationship with her and she wanted us to work together for a long time. When I thought of the girls I wanted to be part of the single, the first thing I thought of was Farina, because it is very important to have good chemistry with the artists with whom one is going to collaborate. She is a very talented, kind, humble and hardworking girl, so she deserved to be in this project.


Was it so clear to you that this year you wanted a contrast between a slow reggaeton (“Before the sun rises”) and an intense one (“Las nenas”)?

I feel like people know me and know that I love versatility, that I get bored if I do just one thing. I love going into different genres, with different sounds. I enjoy the same making a bachata and reggaeton, even a ballad, I like to play a lot with music, and I felt that Las nenas was that refresh I needed for 2021.

What was it like for you to dance and indulge yourself in this song while pregnant?

Something very curious happened to me, and it was that when I found out about my pregnancy, an I don't know what struck me that made me want to work more. There is a myth that women cannot work if they want to start a family, and I believed it for many years, until now. I wanted to show the others that it is possible to work, we can have the best of both worlds. I am a pregnant woman who will dog before, during, and after pregnancy.


You have always been a champion of female empowerment, when did you first become aware of how important this was to you?

I think that I was always very liberal with what I wanted to express and I was not afraid to do so. In fact, the one who was impressed was me when I saw the reaction of people with some things that I said in my songs, and even so I kept doing it, because for me, that was what made the difference, not being afraid. When people finally began to accept that a woman could also communicate things that happen to us in real life, I felt very good. Empowerment has always been one of the most important things to me.

How has it been for you to be a woman in the urban genre?

It has not been easy. This process was uphill, but I never gave up, because I have always carried female empowerment within me, and when I came across people who did not understand that, I still kept working, expressing myself, and above all, defending who I was. Despite all the bumps that I have had to face on the road, today I say that it was all worth it.


From the beginning he collaborated with reggaeton icons such as Don Omar and Daddy Yankee, why is camaraderie more common in the urban genre than in others?

There are different kinds of connections one has with artists. I have worked with singers who have nothing to do with the urban genre, and everything has flowed so well. An example of that was when I worked with Josh Favela, and if we understood each other so well it was because I always respected his work and he mine, although perhaps I did not understand it. We had a good musical connection. I feel that that camaraderie and that companionship is born when you admire and respect the work of the other, regardless of gender.

How did you adapt to the pandemic?

I have handled 2021 in a very positive way, despite the pandemic. I focused on working and showing that I as a woman could do it. Among all the negatives of this nightmare, many positive things came, such as getting closer to our families, strengthening communication with people who are important to us, but, above all, valuing each and every moment that life gives us.
