Lula Miranda, best known for her single “Cherry Kiss,” which was featured on Refinery 29’s ‘The Drop’ column, highlighting the best female artists on the rise today, has come out with a new song, "The Ride." The Argentine musician's work centers on female stories and rejects the concept that the only legitimate narratives are those told by men.
Miranda’s career has been a slow climb towards working with some of the most notable artists in the business, as well as developing her own personal sound throughout the process. She has opened for such notable musicians as Halsey, Maren Morris, and Niall Horan, and collaborated with Clean Bandit, who asked her to cover their track "Solo." The Buenos Aires and Los Angeles-based artist has already taken the Argentine and Spanish music scenes by storm, performing at sold-out 10,000+ cap venues.
It’s no surprise that the singer-songwriter’s newest triumph is an uplifting yet sultry track, in which Miranda is the protagonist of her own narrative, sweetly but definitively singing, “I’m gonna take you for a ride” repeatedly.
"'The Ride' represents my musical universe over the past year," Miranda explains. "It’s the last song I've written and recorded. Although written in two languages, I worked with both English and Latin American producers. I was so excited about the track after we recorded it that I decided to release it before planned."
She continues: "I feel very identified with English and Latin pop. I think that worldwide, Latin music is crossing borders and it's being accepted more and more each day. Representing part of my Latin spirit makes me very proud. I’ve written many songs in Spanish which I’ll be releasing soon."
Miranda is an emerging talent that continues to prove her capabilities through her music and performances. While we can't wait to hear more, we'll be listening to "The Ride" nonstop for now.
