“I wrote this song about putting love above all else,” Uchis said of her new single in a press release. “‘En el amor no hay ley’ means ‘there are no laws to love.’ Be with who makes you happy, and don’t listen to what anyone else has to say about it because it wasn’t their business in the first place!”
Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞ arrived in the fall of 2020, marking Uchis’ first-ever Spanish language LP. The album was nominated for Best Música Urbana Album at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards (she lost out to ad Bunny’s El Último Tour del Mundo). Uchis’ studio debut Isolation came out in 2018.
More recently, Uchis has shared tracks with Omar Apollo (“Bad Life”), Ozuna (“Another Day in America”), and others. Back in May, she shared her version of “Desafinado”—the bossa nova and jazz standard popularized by Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto in the early 1960s. Uchis’ cover appeared on the Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack, which was produced and curated by Jack Antonoff.
