Raquel Sofia Sets the Mood in 'Reina Sin Corona' Video: Exclusive Premiere

A throwback to variety shows of the past, the track's soulful ballad provides the perfect backdrop for the fictional "Studio Nights con Bobby Costa."

Raquel Sofia's new music video is an homage to Latin variety shows of the past. "Reina Sin Corona," or "Queen Without a Crown," begins with an introduction to her performance on the fictional Studio Nights Con Bobby Costa.

That introduction, a little reminiscent of the Saturday Night Live showcases introduced by celebrity guests, feels nostalgic. The melody of the song is inviting and the track's last five words are telling of a broken heart.

From her latest album, 2:00 AM, Sofía presents a tender ballad that highlights her signature style, often anchoring a classic sound with touches of jazz, pop and soul.

"When I write my music, I can only write what I'm feeling," Raquel Sofía tells Billboard. "When I write songs, it's like therapy and by the time I'm done, I understand a little bit more."
