Zayra - Baby Likes To Bang

I've been meaning to write about Zayra for months. She first appeared on my pop trash radar earlier this year when "V.I.P." started making waves on the US dance chart. The song eventually became a top 5 club hit and hasn't left the 'recently played' playlist on my iPod ever since. So who is this mysterious diva? Well, I know she's gorgeous and hails from Puerto Rico. I'm also aware that she came to fame on the reality TV show Supernova in 2006 and released a couple of Spanish language albums in the early noughties. But things get a bit murky after that. The stunning Latina eventually re-emerged this year with a scorching hot dance sound and edgy new image. While "V.I.P" chronicled the trials and tribulations of being rich and beautiful, her latest single is a good old sex anthem. Not that you can actually hear or distinguish the lyrics. Zayra is too fabulous for anything as mundane and pedestrian as enunciating her words! The focus, rather, falls on the catchy chorus, thundering dance beats and stunning video clip (below) - which basically re-creates a Tarantio movie. Our glamorous heroine plays a bad arse bitch who saves a pair of bikini clad twins from a psycho killer. Amazing! Now bring on the remixes and let Zayra claim her throne as the new queen of dance.

i love love love love Zayra! i first became enamoured of her when she released her first Spanish language album several years ago. Though I miss singer/songwriter Zayra (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YadeQ7RW1bc), I welcome her slutty trashy dance alter ego! She was in a band post-Supernova that disbanded but she's salvaged one of their songs "Violent Man" for this project. Yay!

im one of her biggest fans! i too started following her when she first released ruleta, and even suffered through Supernove for her. i was looking forward to her work with Cobralush, but her new release makes me happy she went solo.. this way we get slutty Zayra!

She copied Rihanna on the artwork, "Hard". Why didn't you call her out?
