Ilyssa Saenz is making a return to Tejano music after pursuing a career in education and the talented singer released the official music video for her latest single, “Confía en Mí,” from her highly-anticipated comeback album.
The upbeat, guitar-driven cumbia was co-written by Joel Villarreal and Severo “Sevy” Contreras and Ilyssa tells Tejano Nation it’s a different sound for the Best New Female nominee at the Tejano Music Awards in 2010.
“I’m super excited about it because it’s something I’ve never really done before, it’s a little bit out of my element,” she said. “I wanted to do something a little bit different for this new single.”
“I fell in love with the tune,” Ilyssa said about her latest release. “I thought it had a little catchy tune, a little catchy groove. Once we added the electric guitar, it just took on this different kind of vibe just to do something different and something fun.”
The visual filmed by Ryan Bazan features various scenes of Ilyssa belting out the tune at locations throughout San Antonio, Texas, including a rainfall scene with the beautiful singer.
