It might seem that Cubey appeared out of nowhere at the House of Blues, after co-writing, producing and performing her song “Believe In Me” followed by Dame Mas Electricidad (produced by Paul Drago) followed by the chart-climbing “Somebody Turn The Electric On”. She makes one thing clear: “It’s not an overnight success”.

The song depicts the musician’s current routine. “It’s basically a story of the lifestyle of party and the life you end up living as an artist “.

There are no tricks. It’s honesty with big melodies. And I’m going to be singing songs that are written from various real-life experiences, where Cubey blends her buoyant voice with purposefully simple production.
