Reyna Tropical premieres “It’s going to happen”

Music news

A narrative of mourning and accompaniment through music.

Tropical Queen accompanies you in grief, vulnerability and the hope of consolation, to the rhythm of Mexican afrobeat. Come to your project!

The Mexican band, originally formed by Fabiola Reyna and Nectali Díaz (Sumohair), returns with new music after signing with Psychic Hotline. This new single pays tribute to Diaz after his death, being a hymn of mourning, in the company that only music gives.

Fabiola Reyna wrote “It’s going to happen” as a small gift to remember his friend, but it also became a space for catharsis. The song is a narrative of mourning and accompaniment through sounds, in the unique style of Tropical Queen. As we “recycle” the pain, we make way for creation, as time heals, there is hope.

“It’s going to happen” expands the afrobeat sound that the band has been cultivating since 2017, giving rise to percussions amidst synthesizers, nourished by tropical rhythms. This song is painful, but it is still optimistic, knowing that out of pain there is a new dawn. As long as there is life in sound, we will not be alone.

I think everyone experiences grief in some way, but only a few of us know how to contain it, and even fewer know how to talk about it. “This song offers the relief of knowing that everything passes and everything is renewed,” he adds. Fabiola.
