Paloma Mami has dropped a new song called “Cosas de le Vida.” It’s the first single from the Chilean American singer’s upcoming second LP, further capitalizing on one of international pop’s fastest rising careers.

Paloma Mami released her debut album, Sueños de Dali, in March, and she’s nominated for Best New Artist at the 2021 Latin Grammy Awards, which take place next month.
She recently told Rolling Stone about growing up with Chilean parents in New York, before moving to her parents’ country and quickly finding fame with a sound that blends R&B, reggaeton, and more.
In that interview, Paloma Mami discussed her earliest musical influences: “My mom was obsessed with Marc Anthony,” she said, adding that her father supplemented Paloma’s love of Shakira by introducing her to Amy Winehouse, Gwen Stefani, and Avril Lavigne. “I had my little punk-rock moment like everybody did,” she said, and added that she was also surrounded by jazz, citing Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Frank Sinatra.
Looking forward to her upcoming releases then, she added: “I have a lot of … Actually, let me not tell you. Surprise.”
