Perroni explained her new album combines different sounds and styles, including bachata, pop and vallenato. "What I want is to be able to approach different countries of the Latino community, who are part of our essence and culture," said the 30-year-old singer.
The "Tú y Yo" singer confessed it hasn't been hard for her to start her solo career since it was one of her many dreams. "I've been planning this for three years. I was working quietly, while I was shooting telenovelas, waiting for the right moment to start my music career. Now I'm fully committed to my album, I'm happy to do so," said Perroni, according to Nación.com.
Perroni said she enjoyed being part of RBD because she "learned a lot from it." "Now I enjoyed the stage as a solo artist, it allows me to interact with the audience differently," she said, confessing she hasn't kept in touch with her former bandmates because "everyone is working on their own thing and that makes it complicated to reunite." But despite their busy schedules, Perroni said they will always love each other.
"I define myself as a satisfied woman, full of illusions, living to the fullest, enjoying life", said Perroni, "I am very quiet, nothing showy or ostentatious, you don't even notice I'm in the room." However, the singer said her stage persona is really different. "When I sing I surrender completely," she confessed. "I'm risky. When I have the opportunity to move from place to place I do it, I make decisions, I'm not afraid. 'Eclipse de Luna' was a risk, it was a challenge to release a bachata-style song ('Tú y Yo') and this production, because in the end you never know what will happen," she added.
Perroni also claimed to be enjoying single life and, although she would love to start a family someday, she is not looking forward to getting married any time soon. "I'm fine, happy and fortunate. I'm full of love. I have received incredible support from the public," said the singer.
"In the future, I would like to have a family and get married. But you know what, I'm not one of those woman who grow up dreaming about that moment. I'm in no hurry. That will happen the day I meet the right one, someone who is mature enough. That I care more than a ring and a white dress."
