MIAMI — (PRNewswire) — Top boutique independent Latin record label RichMusic, released today their first all-women EP hembrismo, led and executive produced by its first female signee, paopao, and featuring La Gabi, ARIA VEGA, Cami Da Baby, and Villano Antillano.
Perfectly aligning with Women’s History Month, hembrismo highlights the next generation of Latin female talent in the industry by breaking boundaries, disrupting the Latin scene, and making women heard in a way not done before. The EP is only the beginning of RichMusic’s efforts to spark change in the traditionally male-dominated music industry, further positioning the label as a leader in educating, empowering, supporting, and advocating for equal opportunities for women in the music industry.
hembrismo consists of seven tracks, including the previously released “hebilla,” an alternative reggaetón with a sensual vibe that flips the script and portrays women as the ones taking the lead, enjoying themselves, and being unapologetic about it.
“It’s rare to see five different women come together to create something that uplifts and empowers and is also fun. We were able to bring this EP to life, combining our strengths and individualities, to create something relatable, telling our stories the way we want to tell them,” said paopao.
“The early response to hembrismo is a true testament to the power and strength of the messages conveyed in the EP and the remarkable talent paopao gathered for this first-of-a-kind endeavor. We’re proud to support efforts that level the playing field for everyone. This EP is one small step in the right direction and helps set a precedent for the industry to continue pushing for more equality and inclusivity,” said Josh Mendez, COO and Co-Founder of RichMusic.
The EP brings together a never-before-seen, all-female collaboration in the Latin music industry and sets a strong tone featuring MA’ G NATION’s La Gabi, J Balvin‘s latest protege; ARIA VEGA from Warner Music Mexico; up-and-coming Venezuelan sensation Cami Da Baby; and LGBTQ+ community pioneer within the Latin urban genre, Villano Antillano, from La Buena Fortuna Music.
