Los Angeles, CA (February 8, 2024) – “Have you ever wondered why happiness is so ephemeral, why sadness is so persistent and returns even if it goes away? Have you wondered if evil is necessary, have you wondered why humans don’t know how to love,” questions J Noa in her new single “Era de Cristal.” The song which was produced by Trooko (Residente, Bad Bunny) and released today through Sony Music CAC, focuses on the common problems adolescents face regarding mental health, happiness, and the anxiety of living in a world where suffering seems inevitable. The video was directed by her collaborator Lennyn Salinas and filmed in Santo Domingo, DR. The gritty visuals bring the lyrics of “Era de Cristal” to life, as we see the Dominican rapper trapped in a dark room suffering from anxiety and insomnia. “Sitting on the 7th floor, watching the night fall into the sky, a tear adorns my face and rolls down my neck, stuck on the past while living in the beautiful present and closing every life cycle by cutting my hair,” recites the Dominican artist. This week, the Dominican artist was nominated for the first time for Premios Soberano in the Breakthrough Artist category, the awards will take place on March 12th at 7 PM local time in Santo Domingo, RD. Two weeks ago, she received her first nomination for the Premio Lo Nuestro in the Breakthrough Female Artist category. The 36th edition of the Univisión award ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 22nd at 7 PM EST and 6 PM CST at the Kaseya Center in Miami, FL. On March 9th, J Noa will be performing at her first music festival, Isle of Light, alongside Trueno and Villano Antillano in Santo Domingo, followed by four showcases at the prestigious music festival and conference SXSW 2024 in Austin, TX.
