Singer-songwriter Alexander James Rodriguez has consistently been releasing songs since he kicked off his music career last year, and there is no sign of him slowing down. The teen sensation, who only recently released his summer anthem ‘California’ for the re-opening of the State of California, has dropped his debut Spanish- English samba song, ‘Bella Loquita’ on July 9th. The new Mediterranean infused samba single, ‘Bella Loquita’ was produced by Gemini Musiq (Justin Bieber: Purpose) and written by Alexander James Rodriguez, with a little help from his Madrid-native grandfather. “I am so excited to be LATAM music to my portfolio of songs, and ‘Bella Loquita’ is my first of many,” said Rodriguez. “In order to stay authentically Spanish, I wrote the lyrics with my 88-year-old grandad who was born and raised in Madrid. We had fun coming up with ideas, “La sirenita de mi corazon” was all him. I am grateful for his native-Spanish guidance.”

Alexander, who was born in Marbella in southern Spain, wrote the mid-tempo hybrid song rich with a carnival vibe of steel drums, percussion, Spanish guitar, and traditional fast-paced Flamenco hand claps. Lyrically ‘Bella Loquita’, which translates to crazy beautiful girl, is about a hypnotic girl that you want to dance the summer away with, and enjoy life to the max. Due to Covid-travel restrictions, the music video for ‘Bella Loquita’, which released the same day, was filmed at the famous Laguna Beach Pirate Tower in Southern California. Alexander recruited international dance champ, and his elementary school friend, Misella Vishnevskiy to be his bella loquita. 14-year-old Alexander James Rodriguez rose to fame at the top of 2021 when he received the ‘Rising Star Award’ at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, for his debut single, ‘My Crew’. Predominantly known as an actor, the teen transitioned to music at age 12 during the height of the pandemic last year. ‘Bella Loquita’ from Alexander James Rodriguez is out July 9 th on all digital platforms.
