Ximena Sariñana is a blossoming young Mexican singer whose bubbly personality, fearless experimentation, and former fame as a child telenovela actress have captured the hearts of fans across the globe. Despite the immensely successful 2008 debut album Mediocre consisting entirely of tracks in Spanish, Ximena turned around and bravely released her eponymous sophomore album in English – the only exception being today’s featured song, “Tu y Yo.“ The differences between the two cds extends beyond language; while both can certainly be described as indie-pop, the latter album takes far greater liberties with its exploration of new sounds, particularly electronic, and was clearly an exciting new journey in the development of the soulful young singer.
“Tu y Yo,” with its introspective heart-wrenching Spanish lyrics, can be viewed as a bridge between the two albums that is well representative of the diverse music scenes she has influenced to date. Where else can you encounter an audience compromised of hipsters and Mexican-American youth? Ximena’s ability to unite a wide range of listeners through her music and lyrics speaks volumes, so it is a great privilege to share MTV Iggy‘s exclusive video for “Tu y Yo” on our website today. This love song is a game of cat-and-mouse, where the couple always seems to be at different places in their relationship. You can visit MTV Iggy at their website for an exciting variety of the latest music.
