Veronica is as smart as she is sexy, leading her prey of listeners to dance clubs from coast to coast, where "Freak Like Me" can be heard exclusively before its worldwide digital release on August 30. Fans will be able to purchase the feature track next month, while Veronica gears up for her music video, featuring a racy and steamy elevator scene with male model/actor Antonio Sabato, Jr.
If anyone knows how to make people want more, it's Billboard Magazine's cat-clad cover girl. Veronica endorses some political controversies on this week's front page of this hot-off-the-press issue, some of which may either earn her a censor bar across her fiery red lips or a badge of courage for speaking her mind, uninhibited and unfiltered. "My career may have started as a model or sex symbol, but it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm also able to express myself as an artist," defends Veronica.
At a time of year when the music industry exploits airwaves with Top 40 mega-moneymakers such as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, it's often rare that a newcomer gets a Billboard nod. But Veronica remains an exception to that common tale. Billboard's Hot Dance Club chart has been admiring her popularity since the inception of "Freak Like Me" in major national clubs last spring, stepping her up indefinite notches on its coveted song list.
At 5'2", Mayra Veronica stands tall to naysayers that doubt her inevitable musical crossover from Latin roots to American soil, "I'm bringing my soul, not just my voice. My music transcends language barriers and should erase stereotypes. Old rules no longer apply, it's not a label's world anymore, it's an artist's world." This Cuban missile may have started an American revolution, and ends it on the dance floor.
