Nathy Peluso Delights in DELITO

Nathy Peluso dominates the screen in a series of badass dance moves and visuals that equally dole out attitude and lust in the new music video for her song, “Delito.” It’s sexy, strong and sassy… igualita que la Nathy. This is the fourth single from her debut album Calambre.

“The song describes an intoxicating relationship that is mixed with desire and lust which sees Nathy flip the male gaze.”

“Delito” was written by Nathy with music produced by Rafa Arcaute and Fede Vindver as well as RVNES (Kali Uchis) and Pearl Lion (Bad Bunny, Juice WRLD).

More about Nathy Peluso

Nathy is currently nominated for “Best New Artist” in the Premio Lo Nuestro 2021. This follows her two Latin GRAMMY 2020 nominations, “Best New Artist” and “Best Alternative Song.” Nathy performed her nostalgic R&B jam “Buenos Aires” on the November awards show with the legendary Fito Paez.  

On her bold debut ‘Calambre,’ the Barcelona-based, Argentine-born artist, shows off her stylistic versatility, including sharp hip hop, sleek retro R&B, even a modern take on old-school salsa.  

I don’t want to please. I want to provoke,” Nathy explains.

She might shock you. She might crack you up. You can’t ignore her. Nathy is a larger-than-life consummate performer with a histrionic personality; a much-needed antidote to the sameness of current Latin urban and pop.

Nathy Peluso was born and raised in the working class neighborhood of Saavedra in Buenos Aires. When she was 10 years old, her family moved to Alicante, Spain, in search for better economic opportunities. She grew up in a music-loving household, listening to a wide range of artists from Gloria Estefan and Caetano Veloso to Argentine rock such as Pappo’s Blues and folk like Atahualpa Yupanqui, while attending dance classes and singing in her local chorus.

As a teen, with a smartphone in hand, she discovered hip hop through artists such as Notorious BIGSnoop Dogg50 Cent and Timbaland. Even though Nathy couldn’t understand the lyrics, she was immediately enthralled by hip hop’s attitude and irreverence. Early on, she discovered she could rhyme just as she could harmonize, as evidenced in fan favorite anthem “Corashe,” and 2020 banger “Business Woman.” Likewise, she thrives creating characters, making up accents and easily code switching between styles, genres and languages. “I get really bored being the same person. I like to dig for characters inside of me. Sometimes for drama, sometimes to laugh, cry or get angry. It’s all a reflection of what I have inside me, that intensity.”

90s and early to mid-2000s pop culture influences such as Missy ElliottChristina Aguilera, and Beyoncé are vividly represented in ‘Calambre’ (which means “electric shock” in Spanish). “I just love the records from that era, the melodies of the catchy hooks and the over-the-top pop aesthetics,” she says.

Visceral and vulnerable, sexy yet nonconforming, onstage and online, Nathy’s passion and unique sensibilities are charming fans all over the world. Before getting signed by Sony, Nathy released two independent EPs that made a splash in the underground urban and alternative scenes in Spain: 2017’s breakthrough ‘Esmeralda’, a collection of singles; and 2018’s ‘La Sandunguera,’ in which she channeled an ironic, liberated version of a Latina femme fatale. With the success of ‘La Sandunguera,’ Nathy played in her native Argentina for the first time and made her North American debut at the Latin Alternative Music Conference [LAMC] in New York City’s Central Park.  

My career is entertainment, not just music,” says Nathy of the fearlessness that drives the overarching concept for the album, including the Grace Jones-inspired album cover.  “I’m the one who takes the plug and causes the shock – of passion, happiness, whatever it is, I want to stir people’s guts without them being able to contain themselves.”
