(New York—February 5, 2021) — Dominican trilingual Afro-Latina songstress YEИDRY releases “Se Acabó” ft. Mozart La Para, one of Dominican Republic’s most esteemed artists globally renowned for his freestyle ability. Her new single is accompanied by striking visuals filmed in her hometown of Herrera, Dominican Republic and directed by Kieran Khan under the production of Black Sheep Music Management.
“This song is about my previous relationship. I wrote it when everything was still apparently fine, but my subconscious was already sending me signs that something was breaking inside me. The relationship ended after a month. I wanted listeners to connect with the feeling I had that suddenly it was ending, but I couldn’t blame either of us for it. And obviously there is always a period of time when both people in a relationship try to text and fix things and still hang out together, but most of the time it’s just an illusion. When love ends, it’s almost impossible to revive it,” offers YEИDRY about the inspiration for “Se Acabó.”
Written by YEИDRY, Mozart La Para and Fuxbeat, “Se Acabó” is the follow up to her debut RCA/Sony Latin single “El Diablo,” which was received with overwhelming critical praise from Pitchfork, Refinery29, People en Español, Remezcla, Billboard, Ladygunn, Noisey’s “Next”, Univision, Telemundo and many more.
