You may remember first hearing about The D.E.Y. when they appeared on Paula DeAnda’s hit single “Walk Away.” Now the R&B/hip-hop trio (think a Latin version of the Black Eyed Peas) is venturing out with their debut album The D.E.Y. Has Come. Lyricists Emilio “Yeyo” Cancio-Bello and Rafael “Divine” Torres along with Nuyorican songstress ÃƒÆ’Ã†’ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â°lan Luz Rivera deliver club bangers and slow jams in Spanish and English.
“When The D.E.Y. first took off, our mission was to create a musical fusion of the different sounds and cultures we grew up with and bring it to a new generation of fans who share our experiences,” says The D.E.Y. member ÃƒÆ’Ã†’ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â°lan. “We can’t wait to show the people how we represent that vision and passion to the fullest on this album.”
Watch the video for the group’s first single “Give You The World” (above) produced by J.R. Rotem and look out for their debut album this April on Epic Records featuring production from Timbaland and Stargate.
