Meet Yetsi: The Young Musician Who Brings Together A Fusion Of Latin Pop, R&B And Reggaeton Rhythms

Born and raised in Venezuela, Yetsimar Jiménez Urbáez is an unstoppable artist who brings her fusion of Latin pop, R&B and reggaeton rhythms to the music world. Known by her stage name Yetsi this singer songwriter is quickly making a name for herself.

Gifted with a beautiful voice, Yetsi has been profoundly impacted by music all of her life. From as little as four years old she began to sing and perform. It was her passion for music, along with her years of experience what helped her thrive in her art during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The pandemic actually allowed me to focus on the composing aspect of my music, and improving my sound-which is very important for me. This gave me the time to connect with other amazing musicians and composers from the city that I live and love: Miami.”

However, halfway through her college career, Yetsi was faced with the question of what to do with her life. Her answer was to follow her passion for music and devote herself fully to grow her craft in the United States, where she has been for the last six years.

Yetsi’s resilience has led her to overcome different challenges and achieve her current success. She came to the United States as a teenager and while following her passion for music, she had to find other ways to make ends meet.

“I was a waitress during the day, and at night I would sing at restaurants. I was like a two for one special! I had a lot of sleepless nights. It’s hard being by yourself in a new country. It’s either sink or swim, resting is not an option.” Yetsi explains.

Overall, Yetsi appreciates what she went through. Through the years, she has met and worked with many people who ended up supporting her in her path. She is also no stranger to the difficulties women face in a pretty male-dominated industry. Accordingly, she has risen to the occasion, putting more passion and effort into her work as a female artist.

Yetsi’s first single was called Flipper, her second single was Dime, and her most recent hit is called Brilla, an R&B song in Spanish. This song is the intro to everything that Yetsi will bring us for the rest of this year. In her future projects, Yetsi plans to continue releasing a series of singles and also create her first album.

Brilla, my most recent single, is a very intimate song that was written for someone very special to me. It has an R&B rhythm that has motivated me the most.” Yetsi shares.

Most recently, Yetsi has collaborated with female songwriters and music engineers, who continue to inspire her and push her forward. She believes that the music industry needs to take into account more often the opinions and voices of women. 

With this in mind, in 2021, Yetsi will continue to work on new music, including her first album, as she moves toward achieving success in the music industry.

“Success is to me the result of a sacrifice made, whether it is sleepless nights or long hours of work dedicated to something. It is waking up happy because you are doing what you love, what moves you.” Yetsi states.

Lastly, for Yetsi it is very important to highlight how crucial teamwork is. Working in a team always helps people achieve more things and get to where we want to go faster. Yetsi is deeply grateful to her producers Ethin Marcelino, Hugo Marcelino and Robbie Meza for working with her to create her latest single Brilla.
