Stevie D mentioned the initial phone conversation with Ramon about the song, telling the songwriter, “I need some help, I’ve got this title of a song in my head and I think you’re the guy for it.”
The title was “Ahora Sigo Yo.” Ramon asked for the storyline for the song, which Stevie D gave to him and Ramon said he’d call him back soon.
“Forty-five minutes (later) he sends me a video of him playing it on guitar,” said Stevie D. “When I heard the recording it was exactly as I envisioned…It was like two worlds just met like that, it was perfect.”
Stevie D, who was a former backup vocalist for Joe Lopez Y La Nueva Imagen, has had much success over the past year after his return to music. His debut solo album De Repente, released in October 2017, was a critical success and garnered him a win as Best New Male Artist at the 2018 Tejano Music Awards.
“Ahora Sigo Yo” is available now at all digital music platforms.
