Cuban-American singer, songwriter and model Mayra Verónica has brought back her song “Mamma Mia” in a remix that incorporates English lyrics and her recognizable '50s style.
“We decided that it was one of my best songs on the Spanish end so we wanted to go ahead and make it more of a mainstream song,” Mayra Verónica said.
Mayra Verónica was signed by Simon Cowell’s music label out of London and is planning a European tour for 2014.
She said her new remixed song fits her retro and Latin style, making it easier and more comfortable.
“I actually feel very comfortable with the style because you have the Latin flavor mixed in with the pop dance and mixed in with English lyrics,” Mayra Verónica said.
In the future, she says she will continue this style based around everything that she does.
The Miami-native said she believes her style, which incorporates both English and Spanish is “slowly integrating into a new form of music.”
She continues modeling for Bettie Page Clothing, but is also constantly writing music.
“Mostly the songs just come all together to me. The minute that I get an inspiration, I can be anywhere but the whole songs comes to my mind with melody and lyrics and the whole thing,” Mayra Verónica said.
Mayra Verónica said she spends at least three days a week composing songs. Many times, accompanied by a friend who plays the piano.
“I think it’s part of who I am, I am Latin, Cuban born, raced in the states so it’s part of my culture and part of who I am,” Mayra Verónica said.
