One hardly gets to follow music trends in Mexico especially from our part of the world (Africa) but there is a new kid on the block who is attracting all the attention from his base in Mexico and making a case for his style of music.
Rainfredrick is the name, he has become the pace setter from an unlikely destination and doing what he loves to do with impeccable aplomb.
Though born in Africa, he has grown to become a new face of music in Mexico where he now holds citizenship.
Rainfredrick is a rapper, singer/songwriter, and entrepreneur and his style of music is a fusion of hip-hop, R&B, and Latin Pop. With a rich Afrobeat background, Rainfredrick does not seize to wow his worldwide fan base with hit track after track.
Based in Guadalajara, Mexico, Rainfredrick appeals to the international audience across both the English and Spanish speakers hence the coining of what he terms “Spanglish Music.”
“The question I get asked most often is: ‘what are you saying in Spanish/English?’ As an artist,
it’s a huge compliment when I hear Spanish and English-speaking fans make unintelligible
sounds to emulate the words, even though they don’t know the meaning of some lyrics. I often
see fans memorizing them by heart. This is the power of Spanglish Music, which is, in my
opinion, is a language phenomenon similar to the native Nigerian Pidgin. Fans come to
understand the meaning in the foreign language, even if they don’t know the language itself.
With the power of repetition, fans are learning foreign words from the context of my songs.”
Rainfredrick is currently gearing towards releasing his upcoming album and he has given his fan base a teaser of what to expect with the hit track “Alessa” which is currently receiving great reviews and massive airplays across Africa and the rest of the world.
First burst into the music limelight in March 2020, Rainfredrick has continued to stay afloat with his music. His first debut track “Meet with Portia” is still making waves and he follows it up with leading singles, “Sydney,” and “Put me on the Map” which cement him as the king of his Spanglish Music.
Rainfredrick is not resting on his oars and is promising Africa and the rest of his fan base across the world a great deal of good, refreshing, quality and entertaining music.
