GALE PAYS HOMAGE TO SHAKIRA’S 1998 CLASSICGALE DELIVERING NEW ENERGY ON “INEVITABLE”

Published

on

3x Latin GRAMMY® nominee, powerhouse songwriter and chameleonic rockstar GALE offers a fresh flavor to a well-loved pop song, “Inevitable” adding new energy in a touching cover of Shakira’s 1998 single from the multi-platinum and iconic album, “Dónde Están los Ladrones”

This follows a whirlwind year for the Rolling Stone praised “New It Girl,” honored with the coveted title in tandem with the release of her debut album, “Lo Que No TeDije,” named a “glowing collection of songs that puts [her] knack for pop melodies and confessional lyricism on display.” Accolades continued, marking Rolling Stone’s “Best Albums of 2023” and Billboard’s “Best Latin Albums” mid-year and year-end lists. 

And with good reason, the 12-songs tracked the multi-color shades of GALE and her journey; from fuck-you feminist punk anthemsvulnerable heartbreak balladsand even dream-pop odes to self-pleasure. A delicious mix of pop, eurodance, punk, grunge and urban-flow. Tracks to repeat: “Nuestra Canción”, which ranked #7 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, “Problemas”, which also rocketed to the Top 15, “Inmadura” and “D-Pic.” GALE also released a spooky track at the end of last year paying homage to the best of female-fronted pop-punk “Movie,” exuding major main-character energy.

GALE is also to thank for her chart-topping songwriting: Shakira (who she’s forever inspired by), Christina Aguilera (which landed her 1st Latin GRAMMY® nomination for Album of The Year”), Manuel Turizo (which earned her a 3rd Latin GRAMMY®nomination for “El Merengue”), AnittaCardi B, and Juanes (who welcomed her as a supporting act on his headline tour in Spain this summer).

GALE commands every stage she’s on. Performing on the Latin GRAMMY® stagefor the first time, alongside fellow Best New Artist nominees, and Juanes, in Sevilla last year; singing the US national anthem at the F1 Miami Grand Prix in Miami; performing a showcase at the Latin Alternative Music Conference, and alsoparticipating in a panel at Billboard Latin Week

The Rolling Stone Act Set to Make it Big…” and Billboard co-signed “Artist to Watch” will tour her own catalog at key festival appearances kicking off in February and March in Mexico, Miami and South America, including Picnic Fest, VibraUrbana, Lollapalooza, Ceremonia and Pal Norte! The best is yet to come.
