Chart-topping Latin GRAMMY® nominee Sofia Reyes is ready to say R.I.P. To The B.S. – and she gets that message across with some powerful support in her anthemic new single “R.I.P.” with Rita Ora and Anitta. Amid Latin influenced world sounds and rhythms and pop riffs with an electronic spice, the three women call for an end to the forces draining our world of hope, compassion and joy. Reyes wrote “R.I.P.” with her powerhouse core team of songwriters Shari Short, Omar Tavarez, Chaz Mishan, and artist Thomas Augusto. The Fliptones (Jason Derulo, Flo Rida) and producer/artist Tainy (Cardi B, J Balvin) gave life to the track, Rita Ora and Anitta added their pens to the song, and the result is this anthem.
Sofia Reyes’ “R.I.P.” with Rita Ora and Anitta was released today by Warner Music Latina. It is available for download / streaming HERE. The three artists invite fans to share the obstacles they are saying “R.I.P.” to using the tag #RIPToTheBS. See Reyes’ post HERE.
Reyes, Ora, Anitta and a group of diverse, talented women joined forces for the accompanying video, which was directed by Eif Rivera (DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne). Video will be available on YouTube Friday March 15th at 12:00AM Eastern Standard Time.
Sofia Reyes explains, “’R.I.P.,’ it’s not only a song, but a message that we all need to hear. We all need to be encouraged to walk away from all the bull++++ that’s holding us back. It was also incredibly empowering for me to work with these two super women. I loved that we got to mix all of our cultures up with one message that we can all agree on.”
Rita Ora adds, “Collaborating with other artists is one of my favorite things about making music, the way that everyone works together and the energy everyone brings. We all brought so much passion to this song and it was so much fun dressing up to shoot the music video. Working with Sofia and Anitta was an amazing experience, and I can’t wait for fans to hear the track!”
Anitta says, “When Sofia Reyes invited me, I accepted right away. Sofia and Rita Ora are amazing singers. The song is an R.I.P. to the bull++++, to boring people, to wasting time. It's also in Spanish and English and it even has a little Portuguese. I just love the lyrics. The video is really beautiful, colorful and different from everything I've ever done. We filmed it in January, in Los Angeles. So happy to collab with these super talented women and to represent Brazil in this song!”
