Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
The Queen of Reggaeton aka La Caballota, La Potra and certainly not least La Queen is back! She paved the way for women in Reggaeton when there was no lane. She created it herself and that is why she rightfully earned the title of “La Queen”. She had a vision went for it and executed it! Her music evokes so much emotion. When one of her songs comes on you can’t help, but sing to it and get in your feels. Like my sister Melly said your tone of voice changes to match hers. Her lyrics uplift women and show that we are bosses, badasses and no man can bring us down! Even her songs that are about heartbreak she raps how she never let a man bring her down. She is also a dope MC!!! She has BARS! In my opinion no one at the time she came into the Reggaeton game could match her style and she stood out and still does.
She returns after a 3 year hiatus. So many things have changed in the Reggaeton and latin trap genre more women have become popular from Becky G, Karol G, Anitta to Natti Natasha. But yet the Queen still is on her thrown. Without Ivy Queen these dope female artists wouldn’t exist today. She is a chameleon, she can do any sound and still kill it! She is the Queen of el Genero Urbano. She’s done Reggaeton, Latin Trap, Salsa and Bachata! Ivy Queen needs a documentary/movie that documents her whole journey and what she has contributed and continues to contribute to el Genero Urbano.
La trayectoria de Ivy Queen es extensiva. Tiene 9 albums y 7 EP’s incluyendo, Llego La Queen! It’s been 3 years since she dropped her last album, Vendetta! It’s great to hear new music from her she never disappoints! This EP consists of 7 tracks and a running time of 24 minutes. Please read below as I briefly breakdown each track:
Ivy Queen es alguien que yo admiro. As a female lyricist and songwriter I love that she is unapologetically herself and has bars! As well as very emotional and relatable music. Ivy Queen sigue rompiendo barerras por ejemplo she was just inducted into the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame by La Musa Awards!!! For her to be getting this honor and on top of that being a female en el Genero Urbano it is a huge milestone! If you have never listened to Ivy Queen’s music do yourself a favor check out this album and her previous albums!
Thank you for reading my review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads! While you’re at it follow my blog on social media @7octoberz and Facebook!
