Curb | Word Entertainment’s powerhouse vocalist Blanca has released her highly anticipated sophomore album Shattered today and it is available worldwide and critics are singing her praise:
“Shattered melds Blanca’s modern pop grooves a la Alessia Cara or Pink with a sincere yearning for what she considers to be her guiding force.” - CCM Magazine
“For my ears, "Give It All (feat. Redimi2)" takes top honors for the best song on the record. The upbeat dance track would find its' place at home in a club as much as in a church.” - New Release Today
Former Group 1 Crew member Blanca is back with her second solo offering, Shattered, a solid pop album with a great balance of upbeat tracks ("Remind Me," "Give It All," "Undeniable"), mid-tempo numbers ("Steady," "All In"), and serious slower songs ("Shattered," "Heaven"). - JesusFreakHideout
In just a few weeks, Blanca will be touring the country with friend and fellow artist Mandisa on Mandisa’s Girls Night Live Tour, which also features Jasmine Murray and Candace Payne (viral sensation “Chewbacca Mom”). The extraordinary night is aimed at strengthening female community. Visit www.officialblanca.com for a full list of tour dates.
Shattered is produced by Jason Ingram and Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle), Tedd T (for KING & COUNTRY), COBRA (Lecrae, KB, Hollyn), Bernie Herms (Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey), Jordan Sapp (Tauren Wells, Jordan Feliz, Aaron Cole), Jeff Sojka, Josh Zegan (Stars Go Dim, Mat Kearney), Tommee Profitt (NF, Fleurie) and features artists Redimi2 and Tye Tribbett. The upcoming album has 14 tracks including the Latin songstress’ current single “What If”. The pop track is impacting Hot AC/CHR radio.
A second generation Puerto Rican, the native New Yorker’s next album focuses on moving forward and healing one’s heart after losing her mother last year to breast cancer.
“My main focus with this new album was honesty. I want people to be drawn in through the emotion and sincerity of the lyrics, and feel as if they are right there with me. Though we are all on different journeys in life, the music is what connects us. Their healing is my healing and my pain is their pain.”
Shattered is the follow-up to the former Group 1 Crew member’s explosive self-titled debut in 2015, which garnered two #1 radio singles, “Who I Am” and “Not Backing Down (feat. Tedashii),” the latter of which was featured on ESPN. Blanca’s EP Real Love added a third #1 single to her name to go along with her 25.7 million streams and more than 16.2 million views on YouTube.
Most recently, the critically acclaimed singer performed at the Expolit conference in Florida, a faith-based event where people from all over the world come together in order to unify efforts, learn, teach and create effective alliances for the sole purpose of "Expanding the Kingdom". Blanca connected with her fellow Puerto Rican comrades and other Latin communities, sharing her music, her faith and her spiritual journey.
