I am so proud of AMARA LA NEGRA for jumping into the entertainment scene full force through her saucy style and breakout role on ‘Love and Hip Hop Miami’. Amara La Negra has released the video for “What a Bam Bam,” directed by Montoya el Duro, which follows La Negra through a festive Miami pool party. “What a Bam Bam” samples Sister Nancy’s classic dancehall staple “Bam Bam,” a savvy intergenerational hat tip to another afro-diasporic pioneer, says remezcla.com. And now we have access to the audio for La Negra’s newest single, “Insecure”, which shows off the soft side of her musicality.
ON HER LARGER THAN LIFE AFRO:
“I think people are confused by why I rock my hair the way I do. But it isn’t about hair. It’s about the moral of the story, you know? Hair is nothing, I could go bald tomorrow. I’m still gonna be Amara La Negra. It’s more about feeling comfortable in your own skin, with your body, your hair.”
ON USING HER PLATFORM TO SPEAK OUT ON BEHALF OF THE AFRO-LATINA COMMUNITY:
“I need to educate those that don’t know instead of getting upset, you know? So many people have no idea that there are Latin countries with people that look like me. We’ve been put in the shadows for so many years, and nobody has really spoken about the Afro-Latino community in Colombia or Honduras.”
