Guatemalan artist Jesse Baez and Mexican artist Nan de Miguel (Girl Ultra) are two new R&B singers signed to Finesse Record coming out of Monterrey, Mexico; a new addition to their other genres including electronica and trap mixes.

The romantic groove their music carries holds dense beats and Latin rhythms, giving the impression of a long time collaboration between the two, but they’ve only been working together for about a year. Baez states in an interview conducted with FADER, “With the first song we collaborated on, we took so long that at one point I thought it wasn’t going to happen.”

Influenced from multiple artists like Mariah Carey, Juan Luis Guerra, and OV7, Baez and Ultra explain more in the interview how the connection through the label and their friendship helped them discover their sound.

The duo are expected to perform at the NRMAL food, arts, and community festival going on this weekend in Mexico City. You can get tickets here.

In the meantime, you can check out their music through the Finesse Records SoundCloud below.
