Sofía Valdés makes sure to leave us speechless after each song, and she does it again with her latest single ‘Broken‘ featuring Pink Sweat$. Both artists are known for their impeccable soothing voices, and we were not ready for this collaboration. Before we dive into the song, let us re-introduce to you – Sofía Valdés (in case you don’t know about her already).
Who Is Sofía Valdés?
Born and raised in Panamá, Sofía Valdés is a rising singer-songwriter that is just getting started. She has achieved a lot just at the mere age of 22. Her love for music began in her childhood. At the age of 8, she learned to play guitar- at 13, she wrote her first song (about a ghost named Kevin), and at 21 performed her first live performance at the Lollapalooza festival last summer- amazing! Sofía has accumulated over 18 million Spotify streams from her first EP, Ventura. With over 400,000 monthly Spotify listeners and her latest EP, In Bloom, Sofía is inspirational for many aspiring musicians.
Sofía’s music can be described as a colorful canvas of her emotions ranging from exploring her connection with her culture to the loss of a relationship. She makes sure to showcase vulnerability throughout her songs, like ‘Silhouette.’ Sofia’s musical inspiration came from The Beatles and electric and vibrant sounds. In her songs, you’ll hear different stories and experience a whirlpool of emotions. She also has translated some of her songs like ‘Amsterdam’ to Spanish, her native language, and is expected to release Spanish songs in the future- which is incredible and true to who she is.
And Latest Single + Music Video
Her latest single, ‘Broken,’ with a feature from Pink Sweat$ is the newest breakup anthem in our playlist! The meaning of the song is about not letting the negativity of her past relationship influence how she views herself – as the lyrics say, I’m sorry I won’t dim my light to please your ignorance.
The ‘Broken’ music video, directed by Satchel Lee, is a prime example that these emotions can arise anywhere and anytime, but Sofia makes sure to not let the looming negativities from her past relationship stop her from enjoying a wonderful dinner/night with friends. A true unbothered queen!
