Multi-Genre Singer / Songwriter D. FRANCISCO is setting to explode onto the Pop / Dance Scene with his debut single and music video, “I Want Ya”. Melding classical operatic vocal styling with upbeat Latin-Pop Lyrics and a modern dance energy, this ebullient track recalls the vibrance of the 1999 Latin-Pop explosion led by Ricky Martin and Julio Iglesias, with an elegant twist reminiscent of Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli.
The “I Want Ya” music video is a sizzling number that heats up quick, and burns hot until the very end. It’s set in a darkened club with a group of high rollers seated around a small table, and they’re playing a very big game of poker. Chips and dollars abound – it’s clear that the stakes are high. As D. FRANCISCO and his band light up the stage, a buxom new participant, dressed in all white, enters the match: Ana Carla Sinclair. Known as a contestant on The Voice Mexico, she takes a seat, portraying quite the foil to the sultry hostess and attending waitress, dressed in a sizzling black and red outfit, played by renowned dancer Nayara Nuñez.
As the action ensues, a coy game of eye contact and knowing glances are exchanged by D. FRANCISCO, Nayara, and Ana, although it’s unclear exactly who is on which side. Eventually, Ana runs the table with the supposed “pros” while Nayara explodes onstage with her brilliant dance. Though she may have a furtive plan in place, D. FRANCISCO discreetly disarms her, and executes a plan of his own on the way out the door!

In Italian there is a saying, “Si canta como si parla,” roughly meaning that one sings as one speaks, and singing is to speaking what running is to walking – it’s heightened, more intense. So my goal as an artist is to convey the human condition in all its different facets, and engage the audience in the process. It’s a journey I lead them on, so to speak, which is a manifestation of our mutual humanity, expressed in the universal language of music. Ultimately and thankfully, life is festive. Let’s celebrate it together, along with all the trials & tribulations, the joys & the heartbreaks we’ve encountered along the way. – D FRANCISCO
