Luis Alfredo Silverio Esmanier, aka Luigui Bleand, announces exciting new projects and reveals the title of his anticipated album. The Dominican-Haitian singer-songwriter confirms that the record will be called Pandora and will come out sometime around this year, along with a new single that will give a preview of the overall sound of the LP.
In addition to the yet-to-be-revealed tracks, Pandora will include “Lo’ Prieto,” Bleand’s collaborative hit single with the urban and reggaetón artist Musicologo The Libro. Speaking of the track, the Caribbean star says that the song is a “new sound, and a new essence of what the mainstream urban world is.” He adds that the track’s worldwide success can be attributed to “the cultural connection of the Dominican Republic.”
With the forthcoming album, Bleand plans to enter the Pop mainstream scene. He explains: “In the last three years what we've done is study Luigui Bleand's audience and what kind of music he should emit to his audience. The mainstream industry is one of the best targets that can identify my voice. I've decided to use new colors and genres like Pop Funk, Pop Disco, Hip Hop, Rap, Trap, Trap Disco, Reggae and many more.”
Influenced by his Haitian and African upbringing, Bleand integrates Afro Pop rhythms into his creations. “I might be the first Hispanic vocal artist to experiment with this within a more profound level, connecting with it in a professional way,” admits Luigui.
Emerging as one of the hottest new acts of the Afro-Pop genre with songs like “Lo’ Prieto,” “Te Freno,” “Humolandia,” “La Maquinita,” ft. Nfasis, and “Gomelo,” Blend Luigui also plans to share a new documentary feature about his life and career, which is set to be streamed on Netflix.
