“Donna sulla Luna” is Baby K’s latest album, but it is also your message to Italian music. Encourage to see as many women as possible on the moon of the folk music industry. A Latin pop album containing current popular buzzwords, such as “Pa Ti” and “Mohicans”, as well as the past “It’s not enough for me.”
“Donna sulla Luna” is Baby K’s latest album, but it also conveys a message that you sing it with Italian music. Encourage to see as many women as possible on the moon of the folk music industry. Of course, the Roman singer and songwriter is one of those who have held high the digital banner for many years. On the other hand, in this world, few artists can top the sales charts. Baby K immediately explained this in an interview with Fanpage.it, in which he also traced back the music style that influenced him. This is a Latin pop album, because the singer’s real name Claudia Nahum immediately clarified that he has been able to wear and take off different genres over the years, this time mixing Latin rhythm, reggae, cambia, urban and pop music. No doubt, in the summer. And Baby K has long been one of the protagonists of the summer. From that time to Rome-Bangkok, which broke the rankings and became the measurement standard for anyone in the next few years, this year regarded her as the protagonist of “Patti” with Omar. Montes collaborated with Boomdabash’s “Mohicani”, which added past hits such as “Not me enough more” and “Playa”, as well as collaborations with Gigi D’Alessio, Chiara Ferragni, Tedua, Samurai Jay, Boro Boro, Giaime , Enzo Dong and Lele Blade.
Where was Donna on the moon born?
“The Woman on the Moon” reflects my current situation, whether from a personal perspective or from a musical and professional perspective. Of course, many of the goals I have achieved are well known, but when you encounter certain things, you tend to look back and notice some of the things you have done, where you started, and what you encountered during your journey. , What brought you there. The most important thing has always been to leave, walk and hone, but I want to not just celebrate myself, but as I usually do, put the focus on women again: I hope this is what I can achieve for women The celebration of-in some perspectives, there is a gap in gender equality-when they work constantly, hard, and head down, they try to create their own opportunities, only to find themselves in a state they never expected. Sometimes a person points to the stars, only to find that he is better on the moon. Encourage women to create their own paths different from others, and invest a lot of work and intuition.
You have written almost all of your songs, and I ask you what has changed in songwriting—usually the privilege of men—and what role you and your generation have played.
I think it changed from the moment we talked about it. However, I also think that women in the music industry still don’t have enough control, and they don’t invest enough in it. I encourage them to be more prominent from the perspective of art and creativity. Those who come from rap have this “I do it myself” method because they start from scratch and start from self-production, so rappers say they have extra equipment, they put in and move forward, they create their own Teams, while women tend to be more independent. They do not shoot with their own crew. The author is usually male, so they write from their own perspective. They identify with women, but some things must be written by women. It’s nice that we talk about it more and more because women are being ignored. It’s no coincidence that women’s sales are lower than men, so we see the public feel more comfortable with men. When we talk about creativity and socio-cultural aspects, we see that everything is a little bit connected, but it is true that very few women write, which is why I have established a recognizable style.
The woman on the moon has collected some of your musical soul, how to adapt to all these passions?
From a musical point of view, I think this is a very coherent album, with all the nuances of Latin pop music, from Reggae to Salsa to Cambia, with the addition of ballroom elements. It is coherent, then I like the clear theme of the song as always, so each song has its own theme, and each song immerses you in your own world, so it is good to do these feats, because each song The song brings an added value, and every collaboration is an added value to the song. This is not taken for granted, because people can try but not always succeed. I am very grateful because every artist has expressed so much respect and so much affection to me, and I am very happy to think that I am the bond between Gigi D’Alessio and Tedua.
You have two summer singles, can you tell me about the collaboration with Mohicans’ Boomdabash?
In 2019, we met backstage, glanced at each other, and we said: “Okay, but when will we cooperate?”. In short, we have made some promises to ourselves, now is the time. We all come from very similar musical backgrounds. I grew up in England, where Jamaican influence is very important. Think of London slang and Jamaican mixed together. My record includes dancehall, so we said to ourselves: “Let’s make a very fashionable work”, we want a song that is different from other releases, I think we did it, because in terms of sound, it’s not Latin is not similar to other songs. I think a very good thing has happened. We are very busy and we have a great time.
Listen, why does Latin music, despite its success, face so much prejudice in certain circles?
I am well aware that Latin is not part of the heritage and identity of Italian music, but they are indeed the key to reading: for example, I found that Latin melody is very similar to new melody, and this is not accidental when “this is no longer enough for me.” When I came out, many people told me that it seemed to be a chorus of a new melody. Of course, I think this is a huge compliment, because for me, this type of melody begins with an unbelievable chorus with a capital letter “r”. In short, I believe that at the melody level, the most important thing is that they have a lot in common. It is also true that Italians must always put in some bets even when they are not necessary. Music flourishes in trends, it is culture, so it usually knows how to photograph social and cultural moments, even at the level of style and trend. When they made fun of rappers, they said the same thing to raps, saying that they were four fools in loose pants, but then had to face reality and deal with them with raps that were almost always number one in the standings. It’s as if I said in the 1960s: “Well,’I’m rock and roll, it’s all the same.’ In short, this is meaningless.
But maybe it was also the fault of the summer invasion, right?
I know maybe the summer will be saturated, I know there is almost no choice, but some people choose this type to represent it all year round, always, as an artistic identity, while some people want to replicate a well-developed one from Rome to Bangkok Formula. This is what I understand…
This also makes you a little flattered, doesn’t it?
Yes, yes, of course, whoever throws the stone first will get people who say “Ah, where are you going for this type?” Better than a man in a victor’s chariot. But it is strange to criticize a genre that is sought after and tops the list in the world. In the end, the Italian came last. He was always cautious, but we hope they can get there like they rap and trap.
