Q: Just as the F1 drivers prepare for a race weekend, what do you do to prepare for your live shows?

Sleep is my best friend. When you’re well rested, everything flows. The voice sounds better, you have more stamina on stage and better overall concentration.

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your new music?

I just released a new song called Buenos Aires. It’s the first single of an album called El Viaje (The Journey). All of the songs titles are names of cities. I’m really excited about this one.

Q: When will you next be touring?

I’ll be touring in Spain during the summer and then back to South America and the US during 2024.

Q: Tell us a bit about the playlist you've chosen for this race weekend?

F1 is all about speed and energy so it’s a very rhythmic playlist. I only put one ballad in there because we always need a love song to balance it all out, but they’re mostly songs that will make you get up and dance.

Q: You could go to a gig with three people dead or alive, who would they be and what band/artists would you go and see?

I would take Daniel Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso and we would go to a Latin music concert. I wanna see if they can salsa dance!!!
