Dominican singer/songwriter SOHANNY has sparked a major buzz with her new smash single, “No Es Normal.” The infectious “urban merengue” banger was produced by Richy Peña, who is best known for his Grammy award-winning work on Chino y Nacho’s mega hit of 2010, “Mi Nina Bonita.” Also featured on the single is hot up-and-coming artist, Fuego. “My sound can best be described as ‘tropical urban’ with influences coming not only from the Caribbean, but also from Latin America and the US, where I spent my later years growing up. The music is rhythmically Caribbean at the core, yet is accessible and warm. It is a unique fusion of sounds that I feel transcends all musical borders,” describes Sohanny. “No Es Normal” has proven itself to be a true club anthem with its undeniable ability to make your body move.
“No Es Normal” has also quickly gained radio attention in the United States and Puerto Rico. Major markets all over the United States and Puerto Rico have, one after the other, quickly put the song into rotation. From Tampa to San Juan, from San Antonio to New York City, “No Es Normal” is playing everywhere and Sohanny’s rise through the charts is seemingly unprecedented for a new Latina artist. Everyone is truly starting to take notice now that it has also started spinning at the famed New York City radio station, La Mega 97.9 FM. Many additional stations in the Northeast have also now firmly placed it in their Top 5 as the record continues to gain momentum.
Specifically, the Tropical Latin radio charts have been impacted greatly by “No Es Normal” which, as of today, has reached #12 on the Mediabase Tropical Latin charts (greatest gainer) and #39 on Nielsen/BDS Tropical Latin charts all within 4 weeks of its release. This feat is quite amazing in and of itself, but all signs are pointing to something in the not so distant future – that this record will undoubtedly reach the very top. This impressive chart activity has placed Sohanny in the unique position of being the only female artist to chart in the Top 40 on the Nielsen/BDS Tropical Latin Chart and the only female artist to chart in the Top 20 on the Mediabase Tropical Latin chart.
Sohanny is hard at work in the studio putting the finishing touches on a few new versions of “No Es Normal,” which are sure to excite fans and which also include a few major Latin artist featurings. Eager fans can also look forward to her highly anticipated debut album slated for a release in the summer of 2011.
