One To Watch - Kat DeLuna

U.S. Born of Dominican heritage, upcoming Pop Icon Kat DeLuna has had some pretty big hits over the past few years yet she’s still relatively unknown. Having the vocal range of a Soprano, Kat DeLuna is a natural born talent with a real grasp for performance and her videos show that. Born in New York, but moving to the Dominican Republic when young, Kat had music in her blood performing on stage capturing in the ear of Latin Grammy winning Milly Quezada who mentored the young star. Moving back to New York at age 14, Kat enrolled in Newark Arts school where she fell in love with the music of Aretha Frankin and Billie Holliday.

Signing with Epic Records in 2006, Kat began her Pop assault with hits such as – Whine UpCalling You and Run The Show with Busta Rhymes. Her success, while subdued has been worldwide, with success in Belgium, Australia and Romania and two albums to-date, 9 Lives and Inside Out. The Jennifer Lopez smash On The Floor was also accused of plagiarising Kat’s single Party O’Clock!

Check out two of her previous hits below...

Calling You

Whine Up feat Elephant Man
We featured Kat on SCP a few months ago, however Kat DeLuna’s new single Latin vibed Drop It Low is HOT and this girl really works up a sweat in this highly choreographed video which looks like it includes the entire cast of every episode of So You Think You Can Dance

This new single may not set the world on fire, but we should all know that Kat DeLuna is a Pop force to be reckoned with!
