The most respected female rapper in the Dominican Republic, Melymel, A.K.A. “La Mama Del Rap” (The Mother of Rap), debuts her new video for “Se Te Apago La Luz” with urban icon, Ivy Queen
The hot fan favorite and stellar track, “Se Te Apago La Luz” with the Reggaetón queen herself, Ivy Queen, and so far, has received 300K+ streams across all streaming platforms. Today, the video debut drops with Rolling Stone via VEVO who commented, “Melymel spits fire alongside Puerto Rican Reggaeton royalty, Ivy Queen, in their brazen new trap single “Se Te Apago La Luz,” or “Turn Out the Light.”
Melymel wrote the hit song alongside Ivy Queen after an afternoon of cooking and sharing. The organic process of the writing contributed to the hard-hitting flow that each artist brings to the track. Melymel reflects, “Esto no es un junte musical, es un junte de guerreras que vibran en la misma frecuencia y el resultado es empoderamiento femenino en su más elegante expresión por y para el hip hop! Larga vida para las hembras alfas autodidactas.”[This is not just a musical collaboration, it is a collaboration of warriors who vibrate at the same frequency to bring female empowerment in its most elegant form by and for Hip-hip! Long live self-taught alfa females.”]
Ivy Queen adds, “Donde hay respeto y admiración todo fluye. Juntar nuestros pregones y poner nuestros lápices a correr al son del mismo ritmo, fue una experiencia muy agradable.” [When there is respect and admiration everything flows. Together we joined forces and put our pencils in sync, it was a very nice experience.”]
The new video comes out on the heels of Melymel’s new critically acclaimed album Dragon Queen out now on the tastemaker label, EMPIRE. It is a powerful nod to female empowerment, with a fresh sound and message that resonates with the Latin trap scene.
Dragon Queen is stacked with hits, created alongside cutting-edge producers and artists like Ivy Queen, Mozart La Para, Neka One, Mestiza, Kool Kojak and more. Standouts include “IDGAF”, “No One” Ft. Mozart La Para, “Cuando Salimos” and “Si No Te Amara.”
