All I know is that after shaking my hips to the first Latin beat my ears ever laid on, life's been a bit brighter. Whether you're pressing play burrowed indoors in the middle of a snowstorm or sipping a margarita lounging on the sands of a blue beautiful beach, I hope you feel the same as I do when the tropical beat shines: like stripping down beneath a scorching sun and dancing your worries away.

There's something about a solid rainy day, the type where you curl into a nook surrounded by six pillows, burrowed under a quilt with a cup of boiling tea in one hand and a movie loaded on a laptop in the other. Bonus points if you have a significant other whose body you can snuggle into.
The bouncy, not-quite-in-a-major-key riff combined with the prologue and epilogue of raindrops not only recalls that sense of rainy-day peace, but also carries a nostalgia that lets your mind drift to thoughts of that one boy that maybe could've been ("oh baby aaah") but never really did materialize. All at once comforting and heartaching, the good kind.
