Miami, FL (March 16, 2021)
With a profound desire to dive deep in his Latino culture and roots, and to combine his passion for reggaeton in with his unique CHH style, GAWVI surprises his followers with “Qué Pasó,” the debut single from his first Spanish-language project.
GAWVI, being an influential Christian hip-hop (CHH) artist, has also elevated his artistic career, developing into a renowned producer that has worked with many trailblazers in music such as Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Mandisa, TobyMac, Blanca, and others.
The release of this single introduces GAWVI’s vision and sets the stage for Noche Juvenil, his new production. Also, it establishes the tone of the tracks that will be part of the album.
An upbeat rhythmic song with a contemporary sound that fuses the genres of reggaeton, trap and electronics, “Qué Pasó” encourages all Jesus believers not to be left behind. In addition, he emphasizes that sometimes it is difficult to move forward, but as long as we are with God and listen to His voice, everything is possible.
Undoubtedly, one of the more challenging processes on this project for GAWVI was singing in Spanish for the first time, even though he knows and speaks the language because of his Salvadorian and Dominican roots. However, through this musical discovery, he shares, “As you grow up, you are figuring out your identity and you sometimes have to backtrack to find out where you first started and that was me with this album. I’ve been on a journey and just about connecting with my roots, my Latin culture, and discovering more about myself.
The six-time Dove Award winner has built a career that has broken barriers, making him a pioneer in the music industry. This is why one of his objectives with this album, beyond connecting with the Latino community, is to pave the way for youth that feels voiceless and to provoke the change he wishes to see in music and in the journey of faith.
