Marcela Cruz remixes her song, No Take Backs, over Busta Rhymes’ classic “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See.” Flipping a Busta Rhymes track is not an easy task, but Marcela Cruz did it effortlessly and dropped a R&B banger! - Massave Buzz


Is seems as if Marcela Cruz doesn’t take a vacation. She just dropped a beautiful rendition of Nat King Cole’s holiday classic — The Christmas Song. Enjoy this this tune as you spend time with your family and loved ones. - Massave Buzz


At her core lies the genre of R&B. If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear her before, I’d like to introduce you to this great budding artist by the name of Marcela Cruz.

She’s been using her voice to sing since the age of 9 and this year she released her debut EP Here We Go Again, focusing on telling her own stories of struggles within love, which we can all relate to. Although her music has a pop element to it, the 90’s and early 2000’s R&B influences by artists such as Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey and JoJo that she was raised on take the lead on songs like “Change of Heart” and “Mophizzy” ft. Dutch Rebelle.

Marcela Cruz has a strong sound to her voice and she can’t wait to share more of it as she grows as an artist.

Listen up to Marcela’s debut EP Here We Go Again. - SoShelEyes


Songstress Marcela Cruz hits the nail perfectly on the head with her debut EP “Here We Go Again”. KBX last covered the music video for “Stuck On You”, a track that’s all about getting over a shitty ex so we figured that Cruz’s next project would address the challenges of choosing to stay in love or moving on to bigger and better things. “Here We Go Again” is exactly that- in only 6 songs, Cruz perfectly encapsulates the dichotomy of opening your heart up to someone…and having it broken.

“Here We Go Again” is really a project to listen to as we enter the start of cuffing season. But the EP isn’t necessarily for those of us out there who have a boo to cuddle with at the start of winter. It speaks to those of us who’ve lost in the battle of love and are enduring the cold alone. This EP speaks to all of us who’ve put our hope in love or have lost in love as well. “Here We Go Again” isn’t just dope listening material- it’s cathartic and in that way, it’s really a project about personal growth & healing. Cruz cites artists like Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera & JoJo as inspirations and we can definitely hear that in Cruz’s affinity for vocal harmonies and riffs, along with the musical production and lyrical content- all of these artists sang about heartbreak but also about the simultaneous strength and growth found in loosing love.

Each song addresses a different stages of existing in relationships. “Change of Heart” sounds like an early 2000’s R&B throwback and fits the bill for content- this track is all about those times we’ve changed our minds about falling in love. Dutch Rebelle lends her sensual lyrical flow on “Mophizzy”, a much more laid back song with some heavy drums that mirror the sexiness of the lyrics- this one is definitely the baby-maker of the EP. “No Take Backs” & “H.W.G.A” epitomize the back and forth situations with exes we’ve all been through while the hit single “Stuck On You” is an ode to all of us who just haven’t been able to move on from the past.

Listen to “Here We Go Again” below. Marcela Cruz will be performing live at the next Femme Fatale event November 10th- grab your tickets here. - KillerBoomBox


Marcela Cruz is ready to give love another try, and her new project lays out all her reasoning. On her 6-track debut EP, Here We Go Again, the Boston, MA singer/songwriter delivers an autobiography on her tales of love and the “battles between the decision to stay and fight or to walk away.”

Led by the single, “Stuck On You,” on Here We Go Again, Marcela combines her fondness for riffs and vocal melodies of the 90s and early 2000s with inspiration from artists like Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and Lauryn Hill to showcase her own unique blend of R&B.

“I’ve had so many influences growing up, but I’ve always gravitated towards big voices that take me on the craziest riff rides,” states Marcela. “It has all come together to help form my own voice, which I am unashamedly ok with how it is still being created and can’t wait to see the different journeys it takes me emotionally and artistically.”
Listen to Here We Go Again and purchase if you dig.

Massachusetts native Marcela Cruz teamed up with JAM’N 94.5’s DJ Jaz to drop “The Remix Series Mixtape”, a catchy combination of covers, remixes and original tracks. The talented songstress has been on the music scene for quite some time (KBX has been following her since 2013) and her experience shows in her ability to take covers and remixes and make them her own. The mixtape is a perfect display of Cruz’s vocal abilities and versatility as she goes from singing slow R&B like Beyonce’s “I Miss You” to Samantha J’s reggae hit “Bad Like Yuh”. The best part of the mixtape is that it showcases Cruz’s original songs like “No Take Backs” and “Stuck on You”- listeners can really get to know who Cruz is as an artist, despite the fact that it’s technically a remix mixtape.
Take a listen to the mixtape below and keep up to date with Marcela Cruz through her Twitter and Facebook . If you like what you hear, head over to her iTunes to purchase “No Take Backs” and “Stuck On You”. You can also catch Cruz live in the Boston area- after performing at the wildly popular South By Southwest Music Festival, Cruz will perform at The House of Blues on March 20th and at The Hard Rock Cafe on March 26th. Props to Marcela Cruz for her originality, relentless hard work and for repping the East Coast at SXSW this week. - Killerboombox.com


Marcela Cruz sneaks in an R&B anthem before the end of the summer for your two-stepping needs. Produced by Nelly Protools, “No Take Backs” is one of those “I’m leaving your dumb-ass and you’re going to regret it” R&B joints that fuel many a ladies night out. Young Marcela and her big voice might have caught a heater with this. Jump into the stream below. - Killerboombox.com


So its pretty much understood that we HATE covers over here at #Killer. We are talking Republican hating President Obama level hate. Normally this would have got the delete with the swiftness. But this version of the Jay Z track from singer Marcela Cruz is worthy of note. Her powerful voice does the song justice. Now we need some original joints from her. Until then take a listen for yourself. - Killerboombox.com
