Kali Uchis is upfront in her attraction on “La Luz” with Jhay Cortez

Back in August, Kali Uchis shared the Rico Nasty collab “Aqui Yo Mando”, the first song from her forthcoming Spanish-language second album. While she’s yet to affix any more details about title or release, she has shared another cut from it called “La Luz”, which features Jhay Cortez and was produced by Tainy. Uchis says:

“‘La Luz’ is about the inevitable—that moment when you set your sights on someone and can’t wait to do everything freaky imaginable with them. I was so excited to make my version of a Latin pop song because there’s no other song like it on my upcoming album. I love Jhay and Tainy’s music so I was honored to get in the studio with them.”

Uchis’ music has always put her confidence front and centre, but her recent singles seem to have taken it up a notch. In production, words and delivery, “La Luz” is almost intimidating in the levels of sexuality that she’s emitting. Aided by Tainy’s simple but intoxicating beat, plus a handy verse from Cortez to offer a male perspective, “La Luz” is an all round steamy affair, perfect for a weekend spent indoors with the object of your affections.
