When people hear of Colombia they automatically think of aguardiente, arepas, and vallenato. When it comes to its artists, some of the most recognizable names are Shakira, J Balvin, Maluma, Juanes, and Carlos Vives. But far beyond exquisite cuisine and the success of international artists, there's a wave of promising artists deriving from the new scene of Latin urban music.
Two of them are Feid and Greeicy, who just blessed us with Perfecta, one of the most perfect songs you'll ever hear—no pun-intended. For those who live under a rock or for those who simply love to explore new music, you might want to keep them on your radar.
Born Salomón Villada Hoyos in Medellin, Feid is a 25-year-old singer and songwriter who has collaborated with renowned Latino artists such as J Balvin and Nacho. His love for music and the arts go back as far as his childhood. He's currently making the rounds with his first studio album Asi Como Suena.
Born Greeicy Yeliana Rendón Ceballos in Cali, Greeicy is also a 25-year-old singer who kicked off her career in 2007 as an actress. In addition to acting and singing, she knows how to play the piano, flute, and guitar. After being a famous telenovela star in Colombia, she is currently pursuing her music career.
The two are now making the rounds with a fresh and magical tune called Perfecta—a song, which according to Feid, is simply perfect. "She's a good friend and I admire her a lot," he said to VIX. "It was the perfect time to launch this song together, a song for women that you can dedicate to your loved one."
With Perfecta, which already amasses over 21 million video views, Feid experimented with new techniques. "It was the first time that I took the risk of writing verses for a song. It's only an intro, the chorus, and Greeicy's verse," he said, adding that reducing the song's length was a crazy proposal but had its reason. "People complained that it was too short but that’s what I wanted—for people to play it over and over again and it happened to me.”
