There’s no introductions needed for our latest cover star — his is a name we all know and love. Welcome to Ricky’s revolution. In a spread shot at his California home, #RickyMartin, the globally renowned singer, actor, and performer, opens up about his music and how the prospect of no longer being able to perform in front of massive, sold-out crowds (because of COVID) impacted him. “For me it was like, I don’t know how to do anything else,” @Ricky_Martin says. “I always thought I was going to be able to do this as long as I wanted to— even if I looked ridiculous onstage at 70 years old with a cane, it was my option. But apparently that was no more.” Hit the link in bio to read how he ended up dealing with the anxiety that caused, his thoughts on expanding his family after being cooped up for so long, and what to expect from his new music.⁠⠀ 📸 @fei_bian;⁠⠀ 👔 @luxurylaw.

A daddy indeed. “Listen, I became a daddy when I was 35; it’s not the same thing when you’re 48,” @ricky_martin, who has four children with his husband @jwanyosef, says in our cover story. “You need the energy! And I’m strong, trust me, I’m healthy—I’m carrying two babies at the same time and the stroller and the backpack—but it’s a lot. It’s a big responsibility.” Still, could the pop star see a world where there's more? Click the link in bio to find out that, and to hear how his lifelong fight against child trafficking sometimes complicates the matter.⁠⠀ 📸 @fei_bian;⁠⠀ 👔 @luxurylaw.

Father. King of Latin Pop. Activist. Since his early days in the Latin boy band #Menudo, #RickyMartin has used his platform and celebrity to shine a light on important topics. Then, it was as an ambassador for #UNICEF. But in 2000, he launched @rm_foundation which he's used to wage a global war on child trafficking. “If I don’t do something, I’m allowing it to happen,” the star explains of his efforts. “If I have the platform that social media has given me to talk to 75 million people, it would be horrible not to talk about the things that people need to hear.” But he's not just firing off tweets. Last summer, the performer flew to his native Puerto Rico to call for the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rosselló whose misogynistic and homophobic messages had been exposed. Martin was there, in the thick of a reported 2 million people in the streets waving flags, and demanding justice. After 15 days, the people got what they asked for. “One thing that I’m going to always take with me is that after those days protesting, my kids would wait for me back home, and I knew that they will become revolutionaries because of the passion that we have towards social justice and fairness for all,” says @Ricky_Martin.

“Me convertí en padre a los 35, pero no es lo mismo cuando tienes 48”, aclaró el astro del pop latino. “¡Necesitas tener energías! Y soy fuerte, créeme, estoy saludable, cargo bebés al mismo tiempo, llevo el coche y mochila, pero es demasiado, es una gran responsabilidad“, admitió.

En la entrevista, Martin también aborda la paralización de su gira de conciertos en febrero pasado en Puerto Rico, la ansiedad que le produjo inicialmente el distanciamiento social debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, sus nuevos discos “Pausa” y “Play”, su vida durante la cuarentena, los inicios de su carrera musical y su labor filantrópica, cuya misión es educar y prevenir la trata humana.

This is only the beginning. @jaycenjoshua let’s do this bro! I’m so inspired. The sky is the limit. Can’t wait to hear #orbitalaudio mixes on all musical genres. 🎧 . Created by Martin and Mixer/Producer Jaycen Joshua, The Patent-Pending Technique Reimagines The Headphone Audio Listening Experience LOS ANGELES – Global artist singer/songwriter/producer/multi- Grammy award winner Ricky Martin today debuted a special "Headphone Edition" re-release of his recent, critically praised album Pausa. The “Headphone Edition” marks the first music ever produced incorporating an all-new audio technique Martin and multi-Grammy award winner and music mix engineer Jaycen Joshua perfected and have named “Orbital Audio.” The patent-pending audio technique creates a stunning new type of immersive headphone music listening experience. Fans can experience the new release for themselves right now by visiting link in Bio Raising the bar from established audio advancements such as “8D,” “Orbital Audio” is specifically designed to create a personal sound experience that extrapolates and engulfs listeners within the complexities of a particular track for a true musical journey that you can feel. The “Orbital Audio” special mixing technique enables the power of this game-changing audio advancement to be experienced using any type of headphone (wired or wireless). “This new `Orbital Audio’ technique has enabled us to deliver an extra layer of richness and immersion that enhances the tracks and the way fans can experience music via headphones ~Ricky “What Ricky and I did was set out to solve something that’s been bothering us as well as fellow musicians for a while. We wanted to find a new way for fans to be realistically deeply entrenched in the music. We tried using a number of the newer audio technologies, but nothing gave us that magic. When we finally decided to come at it from a creative first, rather than tech first approach, and from the perspective of catering to musicians is when everything clicked.” Jaycen Joshua

El cantante, en los escenarios desde su preadolescencia, habló sobre la sacudida que representó el confinamiento en contención por la COVID-19, que paralizó la gira mundial que había iniciado en febrero en Puerto Rico.

“Siempre pensé que iba a poder hacer esto todo el tiempo que quisiera, incluso si me veía ridículo en el escenario a los 70 años con un bastón, era mi opción”, indicó.

Sin embargo, las emociones encontradas las canalizó a través de la música. Convirtió en el disco que estaba en agenda, “Movimiento” -tal y como llamó su gira- en dos EP, “Pausa y Play”. EFE News
