LISTEN, SUPPORT AND FEEL THE NEW ANA TIJOUX ALBUM “VENGO.” CAN I SAY HOW HAPPY IT MAKES ME SHE NAMED HER NEW ALBUM “VENGO” AKA “I COME” OR “WHERE I COME FROM,” or “HERE I COME.” UGHHHHH! THANK YOU ANA! Amazing. Speechless. MADRE ES TIERRA!
Maybe I’ll have some words later after continuing to absorb, but NPR has a First Listen you should click on now.
This was my fan-girl reminiscing Instagram post last week, super amped to see Ana at SXSW: “#TBT Can’t wait to see @AnaTijoux in Austin next week! This was the first time we met IRL in 2010 (conrazon 2010 SXSW post re-cap) after being Myspace amigas. We used to chat about struggles of being a woman in hip-hop (I was interning at Fat Beats, she just had a hit out with Julieta Venegas) and share our favorite hip-hop songs over Myspace chat, remember that? Honored to have been able to work together (whether it was promoting her first LA show, having Los Rakas support her shows in Oakland or #FreshBoldSoDef Live in 2011) and see her soar. SACAR LA VOZ! #PODEROSA #MADREESTIERRA #MUSICA #HIPHOP #DIGITALERA #THEAMERICAS”
