Paula DeAnda is a pop queen that has traveled the world performing and collaborating with some of Hollywood’s biggest names. Whilst she has taken some time out of the spotlight to focus on herself and the music she really wants to be putting out to her loyal fan base, she is coming back into the limelight and plans to take the music industry by storm. Widely known for her hit 2006 single “Remember Me,” written by Ne-Yo, Paula reached the peak of her career at the tender age of 15 and is ready to make a comeback into the industry. Disrupt Magazine sat down with Paula and touched base on topics revolving her new music plans, her latest single “Freaky”, what she’s doing when she’s not in the studio, and more.
You have many exciting, fun projects coming out in 2021! Can you spill any details on what we can look forward to from you the rest of the year?
I have a lot of fun projects coming out in 2021. Be on the lookout for cool collaborations and just me pouring my heart out through music.
Do you have a creative say in your music?
Yes, I do, especially because I’m independent. I’m getting in the studio with other incredible writers and producers that I actually want to be working with so it’s a very exciting time.
What’s it feel like to be releasing your own original music again?
Feels great. I know when people don’t hear from ya they think “hmm, she must not do music anymore”. With me, that’s never been the case. I am music LOL – it’s what I feel is one of my purposes in the world.
Will there be a music video for your new single, “Freaky?” If so, can you tell us about the concept of the video?
I did shoot a very cinematic, pushing the envelope, type of music video for “Freaky.” I put it out exclusively on my Only Fans. If you haven’t seen it, subscribe!
Is there anyone you want to thank that’s helped you get to where you are today?
I would definitely thank my family and supporters for always receiving my feelings through my music. I feel like my music has reached so many people and that is the best feeling.
What are three words you would use to describe your fans?
Three words… resilient comes to mind. I mean, my fans have kept my first album alive for all these years. Another word would be loyal, as well as loving! All my fans are so open with me about break-ups and the hardships that they go through. And now, with my new song “Freaky,” my fans have been very vocal about how my single may be the cause of some baby-making LOL.
What do you want your fans to take away from your music and shows? A hidden message, a feeling, etc.
When I get to perform again, I just want to see them connect with me. I want to let the music take them on that journey.
Are you planning any IG Live shows or special treats for your supporters to promote your new music?
I have been speaking with my team and peers about the option of doing virtual shows. I’m also working on some Paula D merch!
What’s a fun fact that your fans don’t know about you?
I used to want to be a nun…very random, but a cool fun fact I guess?
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
The biggest goal outside of music is to land a beauty campaign. Hopefully, I will land some sort of opportunity to do that this year!
