Long Island, New York-based Sammi Rae Murciano and Reggaetón artist Los Vegas premiere their new music video, “Escápate,” today on Medium.
Explaining the dynamic energy of the collaboration, Murciano says, “It has been amazing to work together. To collaborate with someone who has the same passion and dedication for music as I do. We are very excited for what’s to come and have a lot of new music coming soon.”
Influenced by artists such as Beyonce, Dua Lipa, Adele, and James Arthur, Murciano grasped early on her musical path was foreordained. “I always loved to sing. Being in front of everyone performing, was an amazing feeling. I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I would love to tour all over the world, and to be able to inspire others along the way.”
Her EP, The Story, made a big impact, featuring three gorgeous tracks: “Reflection,” on which she looks back at the emotional trauma of bullying, “Back to Me,” a song about letting go of the past and moving forward, and “Never Letting Go,” which urges others to “always take a chance on anything that sets your soul on fire.”
While The Story was pop-flavored, Murciano steps in another direction on “Escápate,” demonstrating her vocal gift and range in the realm of Reggaetón .
“Escápate” opens on a cool reggae-flavored rhythm provided by a potent dance beat topped by Vegas’ tropical-infused tones playing against the sensuous flow of Murciano’s seductive timbres. Oozing, oscillating harmonics imbue the melody with compact silky hues and velvety textures.
The highlight of the track is the palpable antiphonal vivacity between the two sumptuous voices, as they deliver lyrics swelling with sexy élan.
“If I leave with you / I want to be there with you through the night / I want to feel your arms around me / Hold me tight / Your body next to mine / You make me feel so high.” Followed by the lusciously erotic chorus: “Never mind what anybody says / I just want to dance the night away / I just want to know if we can escape.”
“Escápate” is scrumptiously suggestive, full of erogenous surges of electrifying emotions, and the brimming voluptuous tones of Sammi Rae Murciano and Los Vegas.
