Alx Veliz Returns With New Single “Duele” (Hurts Me To Love You)
To Join Nicky Jam For Canadian Tour Dates This September
04 AUGUST 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Canadian global breakout pop sensation Alx Veliz unveils the English version of his new single ‘Duele’(Hurts To Love You). The international Gold and Platinum selling Veliz collaborated with Banx & Ranx to produce the single which is an upbeat fusion of Pop and Latin Rhythms. Both the English and Spanish versions of ‘Duele’ are available on Spotify and all streaming platforms via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
‘Duele’ translated means Hurts Me To Love You. The song describes new love and the pain one goes through when separated from it. Leading up to the release, Alx noted, “I am super excited for this new single because once again I am granted the opportunity to showcase new sounds and genres of music I am currently in love with to the world while continuing to champion my Latin roots."
The track follows the release of Alx’s debut EP Love Has No Language (April 2016) which included his international chart-topping debut ‘Dancing Kizomba.’ The single to date has amassed over 60 million streams with an international radio story and multiple sales certifications across the globe. Most recently, the song was praised back at home, after receiving a SOCAN Award under the Dance Music category.
The story of Alx Veliz is an uncommon one. Making headway as a producer and songwriter for other artists, he was prodded to center stage by his A&R team. His unique sound reflects his multicultural home, Toronto, drawing on diverse influences from samba and salsa to reggae, hip-hop, and the king of pop, Michael Jackson. This savvy combination of dance floor-filling pop and smooth grooves underpins a sound with substance, setting Veliz apart from other artists in his genre.
Veliz will have a chance to showcase new music to fans while supporting Nicky Jam on his Canadian tour dates in Toronto and Montreal. See details below and stay tuned for more from Alx Veliz.
