Nohemy’s Latin roots are alive and well in her debut Pop/Urban release Repetir. After recently collaborating on RNBass’s urban release Trippin, the 24yr old has found her own voice and style by fully embracing her heritage and confidently stepping into the Latin Pop/Urban space with her own signature style and an undeniably catchy track. Repetir, is a captivating, high energy bop about repeating a great moment in time so you can live it over again and again.
“Repetir is a fun, uptempo track filled with energy, which is something I’m known for. The song is about repeating a dope moment in your life, so you can live it up all over again. I mean—don’t you wish you could do that? Pick your favorite day ever, and do it again?” said Nohemy.
Her unique sound, growing social media presence and mysteriously de-feminized fashion only add to the intrigue of this rising star and have led to several partnerships with athletic brands like Champion and media and telecom conglomerate Grupo Salinas. Her features bear a striking resemblance to Aaliyah, but her sound and live performance cleverly combine the vocal tones of Ozuna, the attitude of Bad Bunny and rockstar style of Jon Z.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Nohemy moved to the U.S when she was 16 after being scouted as a promising young, basketball player. One tragedy after another would soon lead her in a very different direction, away from her athletic pursuits and into her musical destiny.
Growing up with a significantly disabled brother, Nohemy’s childhood was far from normal. Her brother Rafael was unable to walk, speak or even eat, but his happy energy and beautiful spirit were a constant source of inspiration and motivation. Ironically, his inability to move his arms or legs made Nohemy appreciate her own physical abilities and push herself as an athlete. His inability to speak, made her appreciate her voice and push herself as a musician. She was shattered when Rafael died in her arms when she was 20 years old. Unable to fill that void in her life, she spent a couple of rough years filled with bad decisions while she sorted that out. Her story is one filled with tough life lessons that are now used as the fuel for her edgy, lyrical storytelling and ever evolving sound. The harsh reality of jail time at an early age was the unlikely catalyst that actually propelled her to follow her passion and look inside herself for her own motivation.
When reflecting on that time in her life Nohemy said “My teen years were tough. I made this song for the younger me. It's a lighthearted reminder that if we can take notice of those moments that are worth keeping and hold tight, they can fuel us until we find more of them. And we will find more.”
