The bilingual Miami-based riela released her latest single, “if you let me”, an avant-pop R&B song that reflects on walking away from a relationship after trying everything to salvage it. This is the third single from the daughter of Cuban and Panamanian immigrant parents, this year.
riela’s music boasts a suave and frequent switch back and forth between Spanish and English, floating on top of an R&B and futuristic pop styling.
She cites Ashanti, Barry White, Celia Cruz and El General as some of her largest influences.
