Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Here's the latest video from local artist L.A.T.I., who is our friend (or whatever you're supposed to call a mutual connection) on Twitter -- you can follow her at @Latimusica (and us at @Crossfade_SFL). It's for "Spaceship," the lead single off her debut album, due out next year. Born LaTisha Marie Cotto, this Mexican-American songstress grew up in Waco, Texas and Atlanta, where she began to hone her sound as a singer, songwriter, and lyricist. You can hear a tiny bit of that city's influence in the mechanical, low-end grind of this song's beat. 


But where L.A.T.I. really sets herself apart is in bringing feminine energy to hip-hop/pop that is sexy, but powerful. You won't find her grinding or demeaning herself for attention, and indeed in this song she demands respect -- in both English and Spanish. The video's simple lighting and edits keep things classy, recalling the great R&B videos of the '90s while keeping things updated for 2010. Enjoy.

Oh, and local bands, musicians, DJs, etc. -- if you have a new music video to share on Crossfade, please send it our way. I'll probably see it faster if you send it to me on Twitter, but email is fine too.
