Track of the Day: Patrona by Lao Ra
Rising Colombian star Lao Ra tantalizes on new single, “Patrona”
Lao Ra is an artist that knows how to make herself heard. Though she started writing songs at 12 years old, her first official release did not come until over ten years later. Her debut “Jesus Made Me Bad” EP sent her Catholic hometown of Bogota, Colombia into a frenzy, while she drew comparisons to MIA and Gwen Stefani. Now, just a few short years later, her catalogue boasts five songs with over 1 million plays on Spotify, and she is aiming for the same on her new single, “Patrona.”
Lao Ra can be found on 33 influential playlists, including New Music Friday
Staying on trend with her most recent releases, “Patrona” is a truly sizzling reggaeton track perfect for the hot summer months. This one release has amassed 6,556,337 playlist followers alone, taking Lao Ra to a remarkable total of 8,754,294. With a feature on high-profile DJ Dillon Francis’ upcoming album on the way, this up-and-coming artist will surely be ascending the ranks of reggaeton soon (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).
