Sixteen year-old Latin-pop crossover Sarah Silva drops fiery first single titled “False Illusions” via dubb Records today, music video forthcoming. The bass driven track is a classic retelling of boy-meets-girl, but with a Gen Z twist by meeting through a social app. A stereotypical player, he sends her mixed signals and presents a “false illusion” of himself. Everything that he says to her doesn’t seem to be fully true, especially when they meet in person. The track mixes feisty pop lyrics with a sassy Latin vibe.
A household name in South and Central America, the bilingual singer has teamed up with producer, A-dubb (Anthony West), on an upcoming EP. Inspired by artists like Rosalía with hints of Becky G, Sarah is ready to make a splash in the U.S. with her own unique brand of Latin pop music.
