Colombian icon-in-waiting Lao Ra has shared her new single 'Picaflor'.
With her reggaeton beats, piercing rap influences, and impeccable pop instincts Lao Ra has transformed herself into one of Colombia's most potent exports.
New single 'Picaflor' - her first in 2019 - adds a subdued layer to her sound, offering up something with measured emotion.
The potent production seems to amplify her words, while Spanish rapper C. Tangana (who has previously collaborated with the likes of Rosalia) is on hand throughout.
Lao Ra comments...
"'Picaflor' offers a sultrier and more melancholic version of me. It’s a song about a hunter and a prey, where a hunter is hunted and where hummingbirds fly and flowers grow in the foreground of chaos. The song is a metaphor for a toxic relationship."
Hector Dockrill directs the video, a stark clip that depicts a toxic relationship - check it out now.
