You don’t have to understand what Amara la negra is singing to become a fan of hers.
She got that look about her that keeps your interest level on high. Are you feeling Amara?
The 23-year-old Dominican-American singer, songwriter, model, and dancer has been hitting up all the Latino radio stations on her Northeast U.S. promo tour to get the word out about her music. With her head-turning dance moves, and catchy singles like “Whine” and “Ayy,” Amara has taken the music scene in the Dominican Republic by storm. And with a collaboration with Mr. Vegas in the works, we’re sure it won’t be long before you’re hearing her name a lot more often. Once you watch the video for “Ayy” (a remake of the Brazilian Funk song “Velocidade 6″ or “Vai” by Mulher Melancia), you’ll see just why. As far as we’re concerned, she sets the bar for wining on a Spanish-language track to an all-time high (See what we mean in the videos below).
It isn’t just the music that has our eyes fixed on the Miami native. As her name might imply, Amara La Negra isn’t shy about putting her chocolate-hued complexion on display and her drop-dead gorgeous looks might have a little something to do with that. Those killer curves, her show-stopping, Celia-esque curly afro and bubbly personality will have you google image-searching her for your next #WomanCrushWednedsay. La Negra (That’s a term of endearment for beautiful dark-skinned ladies) is redefining beauty in the D.R., bolstering every Afro-Dominicana’s pride in their skin tone and ample backside.
