The Latin-Pop explosion of the late 90s was a solid shot in the arm for audiences all over. This eclectic and energetic genre was finally getting it’s due, thanks in part to artists like Ricky Martin and Julio Inglesias. Fast forward to 2016 and we present to you D. FRANCISCO and his new single “I Want Ya.” It has all of the dance energy of the best Latin-Pop but also incorporates twists reminiscent of artists such as Josh Groban and Andrew Bocelli.

While many artists make a lot of noise coming out of the gate but have little to back it up, D. FRANCISCO has spent many years perfecting his craft behind the scenes. His background consists of years of diligent training starting with private instrumental lessons, moving to touring with the celebrated Phoenix Boys Choir, and culminating with an opera internship in Rome, Italy! 

Using these skills as his foundation, he turned his attention to making his own music with his own twist! Not limited to any one genre, D. FRANCISCO pulls from pop, latin, opera, even elements of EDM music. It’s all about the song and whatever fits. For his debut single, he’s pulling out all of the stops. “I Want Ya” jukes and jives and overall has an arc of prolific musicianship that spans front to back! Not only that, but he’s also dropping versions in both English and Spanish!

The “I Want Ya” video is a sizzling number that heats up quick and burns hot until the end. It’s set in a darkened club with a group of high rollers seated around a small table, and they’re playing a VERY big game of poker. Chips and dollars abound, it’s clear that the stakes are high. As D. Francisco and his band light up the stage, a new participant enters the match. Ana Carla Sinclair, known as a contestant on The Voice Mexico takes a seat, dressed in all white, portraying quite the compliment to the hostess in all attending waitress, dressed in a dazzling black and red outfit. She is played by renowned dancer Nayara Nuñez. 

As the action ensues, a coy game of eye contact and knowing glances are exchanged by Francisco, Nayara, and Ana, though it’s unclear who is on which side. Eventually, Ana runs the table with the supposed “pros” while Nayara explodes onstage with her brilliant choreography. Though she may have a plan in place, Francisco discreetly disarms her and executes a plan of his own on the way out the door!
