Exclusive: Veronica Vega Talks New Music, Polow Da Don And Her Love For ‘Epic’ Beyonce

Published: Wednesday 13th Mar 2013 by David

Meet your new obsession.

She’s the Latina Pop Princess with a following growing thicker by the day and this week- in helping to shine a light on her growing buzz- That Grape Juice met Ms. Veronica Vega following the release of her scorching new cut ‘El Papel’.

Want to know why she’s got Pitbull, Polow Da Don and Ne-Yo singing her praises?

Come meet her below…

My biggest influences are my parents“, she explains when we first met, “Growing up in my household music was almost the most important part of our lives. Like, it woke us up in the morning. My mom loves to sing and my dad enjoys being the DJ and all of that shaped my sound.

A proud Cuban and Venezuelan, the last few years saw Veronica’s life change when she was discovered by Ciara producer Polow Da Don while working the underground circuit. A discovery he described as life changing, sharing:

“Working with Vega has been a life changing experience – Culturally, Musically, and Spiritually. With all that I know about music, I’ve been just as much a student during the process of this project. This project opens my eyes to how big the world really is”.

On her new single ‘El Papel‘, that cultural diversity is all too present- serving an exotic sass Vega says comes courtesy of her a background just as diverse. “My childhood was filled with all kinds of music music, dance, family, and people of different nationalities, so I’ve always been open culturally and you can hear it on Papel. In saying that, the other material has a lot of range-on my mids and ballads I’m more soulful and laid back.

As far as vocalists go, Vega says it’s ‘End Of Time’ singer Beyonce who holds a special place in her heart, citing her epic nature as the reason behind her success. “She’s paved the way for so many newcomers and still has so many beautiful things and qualities to offer.” 

A collaboration between the pair? Who knows?…but one thing’s for certain and that’s Pitbull’s contribution to her forthcoming single ‘Wicked’– set to touchdown in the coming weeks.

On the duet, the stunner revealed:

“Pitbull is like family. Our collaboration came together pretty organically. I mean, he was in the studio, we played the record, and he was like ‘Vega,I’m going to jump on that (laughs)’. He did. I loved it! And there it was… Vega feat Pitbull! 
I feel like the sound’s a bit wild, it’s energising. It’s a mix of hip-hop, soca, reggae, and Dance-Haha. It sounds worldly. So you already know, the theme is colorful, vibrant, but gritty as well. I’m really excited about it all.”
So what can the world expect from the vocalist this year?
I pray that 2013 brings me closer to my fans.
That my music speaks to their hearts and captures the attention of new fans. I hope that through my music they can find an outlet for them to express themselves.
That I can help people let go and feel good about themselves you know. 
To be honest, I just want to be able to achieve some of these ideas that haunt my dreams at night.”
We’re sold…
