Isabela Merced – “Caliente Navidad” single
“At first you say you wanna take it slow. One-touch and let your inhibitions go. We don’t need, don’t need no mistletoe. Callate y Besame shut up and kiss me. So you want a merry Christmas, I’ll show you Navidad. You might think it’s different but you know it’s hot. Naughty is the nice list, you know I’m on top. You want a merry Christmas, I’ll show you a Caliente Navidad.” – lyrics
‘Caliente Navidad’ tells an adoring tale about a young woman who shares a romantic moment in time with her significant other. Apparently, they are having a great time getting to each other as they gear up for a red hot holiday season. Later, the woman tells her companion to let go, come closer, and let the spirit take over.
‘Caliente Navidad’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the dancefloor-friendly tune possesses infectious instrumentation beautifully flavored with commercial Pop and Holiday music elements. Furthermore, “Caliente Navidad” is Isabela Merced’s first-ever Christmas song.
“Last year, I was able to spend Christmas with my family in Peru, and it was by far the warmest feeling ever. It was a lot of dancing, eating, and the fun didn’t stop until the next day. Also, on Christmas, my family makes chocolate Caliente, and cuts Paneton. Then the celebrations start with lots of dancing. One of our traditions is the Alcatraz, a Peruvian dance. My hope is everyone gets to have a Caliente Navidad. Whether it’s in a warm place or just a warm Christmas surrounded by those you love.” – Isabela Merced stated
