Latina songstress Elle Baez channels a disco vibe highlighting her sultry vocals on newest release, “Better With You.” The accompanying music video depicts the singer in a detention classroom serenading her afro and bell-bottom wearing crush. Equipped with vibrant floral prints and go-go boots, Baez serves vintage looks with a modern sound.
“Better With You” has a pop beat with a soulful undertone. Baez’s vocals are buttery smooth with each verse. She effortlessly toggles between a deep R&B sound and harmonious jazzy hooks. Her energetic yet poised voice is reminiscent of Dua Lipa but with a classic twist all her own. She sings the chorus, “Yeah I felt it from that moment, I knew / I knew I would be better with you.” The singer also highlights her background by including Spanish phrases in her lyricism. The video shows, “Una bella dama” written on a chalkboard as Baez sings the words. She then hands her love interest a Spanish study guide. The subtle nod to the language is playful and well-executed.
Baez’s confidence and charisma is infectious. She describes the creative inspiration behind the single, “This song was written from a point of control/power because I knew I was better for the guy than his ex-girlfriend. It was my way of letting him know that I am the one who can give him all he's been looking for. In the production, the electric bass really gave it the grit I was wanting to add to the sultry, fun and fierce vibe.” She is the best friend everyone wants and needs. Her positive energy is an instant serotonin boost.
Boasting a supportive following on Instagram and TikTok, the artist uses her platform to advocate for body positivity and self-love. Her empowerment can be heard through her music, keeping individuality at the core. Despite her mainstream sound, Elle Baez is pushing the boundaries of the industry with her versatile style and artistry.
