Nashville, TN (July 15, 2022)
Blanca has announced her highly-anticipated album, The Heartbreak and The Healing, set to arrive September 23, 2022. Additionally, Blanca previews the deeply personal record with the release of ‘New Day’ (feat. Jekalyn Carr), available now, and watch the official music video for the undeniably optimistic track.
Blanca’s third studio project, The Heartbreak and The Healing, offers two sides of the same story—the hurt and the redemption. Written in the wake of a painful divorce, the songstress vulnerably cracks her heart wide open on the new 14-track collection that beautifully showcases the merger of her unstoppable voice and her transparent lyricism. A diverse fusion of pop, Latin, hip-hop and Gospel, the full-length effort follows Blanca on a journey of self-discovery as she rises from the ashes stronger and more empowered than ever before. The fresh set features chart-topping hit ‘Even At My Worst’ and current radio single ‘The Healing’ (feat. Dante Bowe).
Blanca continues to give listeners a glimpse into The Heartbreak and The Healing with today’s advance drop of “New Day.” A blend of pulsating hip-hop beats and a soulful groove, the pulls-no-punches selection welcomes five-time GRAMMY nominee Jekalyn Carr on the second verse. Together, the two vocalists make a bold statement: They’re not settling, and good things are coming their way. Unbreakable, Blanca steps into new mercies as she charts a course all her own with a good deal of grit and determination on the confident new track, which she co-wrote with Anton Göransson, Isabella Sjöstrand, Taylor Hill and Carr.

The powerful pop vocalist of Puerto Rican descent, Blanca, was born in New York City and at a young age, moved to Florida, where she lives today. The Premios Arpa award recipient’s self-titled, debut solo album, following a successful Dove Award-winning run with Group 1 Crew, garnered two No. 1 radio singles, “Who I Am” and “Not Backing Down (feat. Tedashii),” the latter of which was featured on ESPN. Shattered, Blanca’s second album and a project that is very personal to her, added three back-to-back No. 1 radio singles (“Real Love,” “What If” and “Remind Me”) to her story, along with 104 million streams and more than 39 million views on YouTube. She received her first-ever Tecla Award nomination in October of 2019, in the category of Best Musician Creating Social Content.
