Mexican singer Christi Lux goes dancehall
Mexican singer-actress Christi Lux has teamed up with producers Jungle Jesus and Manager Davila for a Spanish dancehall song titled Pegaa.
"The song is dancehall and the lyrics are what they call Spanglish, but I feel that it is a phenomenal song with crossover potential," said Christi Lux.
She came to Jamaica recently to shoot a music video and got plugged into the local music scene. She loves the feel and sound of dancehall.
"I met Jungle Jesus when I came to Jamaica to shoot a video, and it was an amazing experience. The people are so warm and loving, the weather is great as well, the music is incredible. I visited the Bob Marley museum, and I got a chance to eat Rastafarian food, and jerk chicken. Jamaica is an amazing country, wonderful, warm people," Christi Lux said.
Pegaa will be released on Jungle Jesus Entertainment in August. Jungle Jesus is also excited about the project.
"The uptempo vibe from the riddim is what inspired me to dabble into the Latino market. I admired Christi Lux work ethics and her love for the Latino genre, so that motivated me to reach out to her and work on this project," Jungle Jesus said.
Born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, Christi Lux grew up in Texas, USA. She infuses reggaeton into American pop to cultivate a modern sound. She is also an actress and she is currently shooting scenes for a Netflix movie titled Texas Kill City where she plays Percilla, the head of a Mexican cartel.
"It's a real pleasure working with Christi, she is very professional and I am getting a lot of positive feedback from music insiders on her tracks," said Manager Davila.
