Oscarcito: ”Tumbaye’ is paving the way for me’

Oscarcito is in the holiday spirit with his latest jam “Llego la Navidad,” forming part of the Christmas album “Parranda All-Stars Navidad.” But the single that has really paved the way for him as a singer is the hot summer song “Tumbaye.” SEE ALSO: Tito El Bambino: ‘Christmas in Puerto Rico is always a party’ The Venezuelan-born singer, who has debuted as a solo artist after years of composing music for other stars such as Victor Manuelle, said “Tumbaye” has received great feedback from his fans. “It’s extraordinary, a good feeling from the audience,” he told VOXXI. “‘Premios Juventud’ gave me the opportunity to open the show with my song. It’s quickly picking up steam in Latin America.” In the midst of his hit single, Oscarcito recalls a special tweet from iconic salsa singer Marc Anthony, which read: “I’ve just heard ‘Tumbaye’ from Oscarcito, and it’s becoming in one of my favorite songs of the summer.” And with a smashing summer record in hand, and new endeavors on the way, here’s everything the up coming sensation disclosed in our Q&A. Q&A with Oscarcito VOXXI (V): How did your musical career begin? Oscarcito (O): I’ve always been interested in music. In 1998 I belonged to a the group Punto Cinco and then El Escuadron. Now I’m navigating in this world as a soloist. I just finished signing with Sony Music and I’m grateful that they were interested in me. V: What’s the story behind “Tumbaye”? O: It’s a song that was conceived in Puerto Rico with the help of two important composers, including Gocho. I found the need to make a song that Latinos would enjoy. I wanted my song to have a little bit of me, of Venezuela and different influences from other parts of the world. V: Why “Oscarcito”? O: It’s the nickname that I’ve had since I was young. I was always the shortest one in my classroom. Also because I was born 10 years after my siblings. There’s a lot of famous Oscar’s in the world and this way it’s easy to distinguish my project. SEE ALSO: Maffio rises to the top with ‘Quiero Otro Amor’ V: When can we expect your album? O: It’s already done, but we’re defining minor details. There’s a song with Belinda from Mexico, Maffio from Dominican Republic, Gocho from Puerto Rico and more. I’ve written for Victor Manuelle and other artists, so I’m full with work, not only as an artist but also a composer. V: What other artists would you like to compose for? O: For me it would be an honor to write songs for Ricardo Arjona, Juan Luis Guerra, Ricardo Montaner, who are also composers. For them to sing a song from another composer is a true challenge. V: What’s your biggest goal as an artist? O: I’m already achieving it, which is to one way or another enter the lives of many people with my music. I want them to relate to my songs. The best gift I can get is the interaction with my fans.

He also told VOXXI that there’s a big possibility that his next single will be a duo, but it’s yet to be revealed.
