Chyno Miranda

Starting over a musical career can be very difficult when you already have an established name with someone else.  But for Chyno Miranda, his new beginning is the fuel to let the fans know how he "feels the music," and who he really is. 

Since he parted ways from the duo Chino & Nacho, the Venezuelan singer has been working hard on new projects. Most notably, his first album as a solo artist (titled Chevere), which is already poised to be released within the next months.

In addition, Miranda getting ready to release his third single, also named "Chevere," featuring J Balvin -- a song that was composed by Servando Primera and Atella, along with the singer. In a conversation with Billboard, Chyno Miranda spoke in detail about the process for his solo debut, which for him has been a dream come true.

Last year you launched your solo career. What plans do you have for 2018?

I'm going to be releasing my first album, Chevere. This is really important; people will know how I feel the music. Before people knew me for Chino & Nacho, a project that we both decided the sound.  But, now this is my dream.

Any collaborations for this album?

It has eighteen songs and twelve are collaborations.  I can tell you that I have songs with Wisin, J Balvin, Gente de Zona, J Quiles, Zion & Lennox, Larry Over, Guaco and Jacob Forever.

How do you feel with all these artists supporting your project?

It's quite nice that with the people that I've shared my music, all have wanted to jump in from the first moment. I showed them the songs and that's something I think is pretty nice for me, and I always feel very proud.  It is a good start; I feel we're going all right.

When is the album coming out?

Between February and March.

How has the process of writing songs been for you?

Creativity has no limit. I used to write songs by myself, now I had the opportunity to participate in group composition -- and I'm learning, it's wonderful. For this album, I mostly work with Oscarcito, Servando Primera, and Mario Caceres. I feel this is a new stage in my and I am enjoying it a lot.

You are working with young talented Venezuelans like you, something that your country needs ...

Yes, our country needs a lot of love and people to represent it, I think it's important.  The young people in Venezuela are suffering a lot, and having these guys who are having success, this motivates them -- and it makes them feel that nothing is impossible in life.
