Some of our favorite artists of all time have stepped behind the pen to write songs for other acts, including Meghan Trainor and Avril Lavigne. Now future Puerto Rican superstar GALE (pronounced GAH-leh) is joining our list! She’s worked with the likes of Anitta, Becky G, and Christina Aguilera and her work ethic is absolutely blowing our minds.
Something else that’s blowing our minds right now is her latest pop-rock masterpiece, ‘Problemas.’ Her vocals sound absolutely mesmerizing and really carry the emotion in the lyrics, which talk about an unhealthy relationship. This is really the ultimate culmination of her incredible talent!
I wanted to write a song inspired by being in a physical, toxic relationship where most problems are solved in the bedroom. It’s like a vicious cycle: you know it’s not good for you, but you keep coming back for the high and excitement of it. The music video is a perfect representation of it. It’s very stimulating. I’m engaging with different situations and things such as food, renaissance figures, dancing, lights, and rock ‘n’ roll.
As she mentioned, the music video is a cinematic masterpiece as well! GALE goes from an LED screen-filled room to a dining table full of citrus to a checkerboard performance set, and every minute is a whirlwind of energy and excitement. On a semi-related note, could we please raid her closet?? We’re especially obsessed with these heart pants.
So what are you waiting for? Make sure you add GALE’s ‘Problemas’ to your playlist and check out the rest of her discography on your favorite streaming platforms. What do you think of the song? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
