Lonelez Commits to Love, Passion, and All Things Fun with “La Romcom”

By Cynthia Gross

Dominican born and Connecticut-based artist Lonelez proposes a simple way to keep the spark alive in the complicated game of love with his latest EP “La Romcom” – add some fun. The bilingual blend of English and Spanish lyrics coupled with an eclectic mix of trap and dancehall rhythms create an original sound that’s sure to get you grooving.

Lonelez’s entry into the music scene is best described as a journey of rediscovering his passion. Previously, he worked as a graphic designer, racking up an impressive portfolio of Latin celebrity clients, including Ozuna, Mozart La Para, J Alvarez, and Natti Natasha. Early on, Lonelez notes, “I was not in the middle of the music scene and I was young, so I didn’t have connections. Graphic design kind of helped me promote myself, but it came to a point where I was mostly known for designs rather than music, so I had to make a choice.”

And we’re confident you’ll agree that Lonelez made the right choice. “La Romcom” is a rousing collection of songs based on a distinct narrative, which Lonelez describes as “romcoms told through songs.” True to form, Lonelez infuses adventure, fun, and party-going throughout his songs. The lead single “White Latina” showcases the raunchy side of Lonelez’s tongue-in-cheek songwriting: “Too many girls outside waiting for me. Calling me into the house like I’m a kid.”

Lonelez’s talents as an up-and-coming musician – via both original music and reimagined covers – continue to expand his reach. His trap remix of Daddy Yankee’s “Shaky Shaky” became an internet sensation, and his bachata remix of Plan B’s Fanatica Sensual was danced all over the world. Earlier this year, his reggaeton remix of Taylor Swift’s “willow” became a viral sound on TikTok.

Perhaps most importantly, Lonelez’s story reminds listeners to embrace one’s true calling despite finding success elsewhere. “Most of today’s Latin urban music sounds the same and tells the same story,” explains Lonelez. “I wanted to present something completely different with ‘La Romcom.’”

His music opens the door for future generations of Latin artists to break boundaries and challenge stereotypes. Needless to say, Lonelez has our attention, and we’re ready for more.

How did you first get involved in music?

Being of Cuban heritage, music and dance were very much a part of [my] cultural and familial experience. Not to mention, there was a spiritual aspect to it—trance states and such that could be achieved from rhythm and beat.
