Houston-raised, Los Angeles-based bilingual artist Alaina Castillo has released the visual for her latest English single ‘pass you by’. The stunning live performance showcases her flawless vocals and has garnered over 45k YouTube views in just one day of its release!
The single, released as part of her critically acclaimed EP the voicenotes, which has now had over 10 million streams, is also the English language version of the song.
The Spanish language version of the song, ‘no vuelvas a mirar atrás’, is from the Spanish edition of the EP mensajes de voz.
The Mexican-American artist combines her Latin roots with her love of R&B, pop and hip-hop, singing in both the English and Spanish languages. Alaina is continuing her upward ascent and is quickly becoming a fan favourite, recently surpassing 40 million streams worldwide.
As Spotify’s selected US Radar Artist, the young music artist has gained huge support from them, and garnered press from publications such as Rolling Stone, V Magazine, Complex, Clash, NME, Billboard and more, recently recording a COLORS HOME/BRED session.
Says Castillo of her latest EP:
“the voicenotes ep is a vulnerable step into overthinking, stressing & learning to let things go. each song has something to do with a part of me that stays hidden most of the time but can only come out and when i’m singing and not having to think about what i’m saying. it’s all the moments i took my thoughts to the voicenotes on my phone and just said what i was feeling super quick so that i could get it out there. i wanted to make something like this because everyone goes through their own shit but it’s the moving on process and the forgiving process that is important. life is gonna suck sometimes but having music to help you through those moments is what really matters in the end.”
