Introducing: Jackie Cruz – La Hora Loca


Actor, entrepreneur, vocalist and New Yorker of Dominican descent, Jackie Cruz, became a household name from her portrayal of “Marisol ‘Flaca’ Gonzales” on Netflix’s critically acclaimed series, The original series created by Jenji Kohan became an award-winning magnet and released its 7th and final season in 2019.

La Hora Loca is a track from Cruz’s debut album Hija de Chavez and it sounds amazing. I really like the catchy melodies. Besides, the vocal performance is very powerful. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the dynamic chorus and the unique rhythms!

The track is accompanied by a spectacular music video, created by Cruz’s own production company, Unspoken Film. The company’s objective is to advocate for more representation of Latina women and create more diverse opportunities in film. Cruz believes that everyone deserves representation in media, and was inspired by the misrepresentation of the scope of her people. With her production company, it was time for everyone to see more colorful Latinx on screen, and Orange couldn’t be the only show.

Cruz has made modern art, La Hora Loca is the definition of good music. Start streaming it as soon as possible and feel free to sing along while listening!
