Biography

YOVANNI is a Miami-based dance music recording artist with a career that spans more than two decades in both Miami and New York City.

In the summer of 1997, YOVANNI followed his dream and moved to New York City to pursue his passion for music. After being fired from his job as a waiter, YOVANNI found himself penniless and on the brink of homelessness.
Instead of returning home defeated, he began singing in the subway for spare change. The song Lean On Me by Bill Withers lifted YOVANNI out of the subway and into backup vocal gigs for recording artists such as Nia Mone't, TNP and other New York bands.

Taking the song that sustained him underground to a big audition in Harlem at the famous Apollo theater YOVANNI belted out a heart-felt rendition of the classic song he?d come to lean on and the audience responded with thunderous applause. It was this momentous appearance at Showtime at the Apollo that ignited YOVANNI’s musical career.

In 2009 the pop-rock singer teamed up with the U.S. label Trigga Entertainment owned by Dj Nelson Trigga Martinez to produce a powerful mix of pop, house and dance electronic music.

“In the world of entertainment today anybody can claim to be a musician, record a song, make a music video and place it online,” says Nelson Trigga Martinez.

“What really separates the „anybodies? from the somebody special is the integrity and passion of the artist,” Martinez adds.

In 2011 YOVANNI and Trigga Entertainment teamed up with De Water Music & Media from the Netherlands. The second single from YOVANNI 'Hello’ was produced by international DJ/Producer Eddie Middle-Line, who is currently working with the Armada label group. ‘Hello’ has been charted on several DJ music charts and landed a spot for 3 weeks at #37 on the dance chart of the international magazine DJ Times.

The ‘Hello’ single was also picked up by Dutch record label Cloud 9 and German record label Toka Beatz. After two very successful appearances at the ADE – Amsterdam Dance Event in the Netherlands, 'Hello’ and its club remixes are now featured on several compilation releases across Europe and has gained YOVANNI a cult status among club goers worldwide.

The music video for „Hello? is currently on rotation at clubs and retail stores around the world and is currently airing on several music channels including Viacom MTV networks.

YOVANNI is a powerful vocalist who can sing a song and kill it on stage and a passionate artist full of light and energy. Unparalleled talent paired with authentic passion and drive will ensure that YOVANNI will CLAIM SUCCESS for many years to come.

Lyrics

I WANT YOU

Written By: Yovanni Medel

Verse 1
I have nothing to hide
I have no shame, I’m not the same way.
People can talk all they want
I have no use for the words that they say
I got emotions, my life is not a Poker game.
Oh no baby
I’ll always fight for what’s right
I won’t play silly games.

Chorus
Don’t deny it don’t hide it
Keep on with your pride
Don’t let others get the best of you.
I’m your secret lover baby
I’ll give you my heart
Don’t you know?
I want you
I want you

Verse 2
I know your fantasies
Some things in life you just can’t resist
But don’t play the fool on the run
I’ll play your game and I’ll still hold a gun.
But you can’t be too careful
When I’m stepping from behind
Oh no baby
Don’t push away what you want
I’ll still put up a fight.

Chorus

Bridge
Don’t you know, I want you?
Yea yea I want you

Don’t You know that I want you?
This is real we’re in our own world
Take a stand and be possessive.
Be a man and let yourself free
Don’t you know I want you?

Ad lib
Don’t You know, Don’t Forget
Don’t you know, I need your loving arms
I need your heart and soul
Don’t you know, Don’t Forgett,
I need you in my arms, I need you by my side
Don’t you know that I need you right now
Don’t for get that I wan oyu right now
Don’t you know?
Don’t forget
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know I need you baby yea.

Hello

Written By: Yovanni Medel

Forgot to say Hello……

Did you think I hitched a ride, got my ticket into Hollywood?
Did you think I packed my bags, just fly off into outer space?
Like a comet in July, into a future paradise.
I’m just a modern citizen, trying to make through another day….
(Chorus)
Forgot to say Hello - forgot to say hello…
Let it roll, let’s go down to the city.
Forgot to say hello - Forgot to say Hello…

I think it’s time I start the show.
Break out my guitar and the radio.
I’ll be like Elvis in disguise.
Maybe Madonna borderline.
Take back your pictures in the frame.
Take back your singing in the rain.
This time I’ll make it on my own.
Just like my mama told me so.
I’m the parade that just passed you by.
The rainbow colors, the stars, the stripes.
This time tomorrow, your midnight lover,
Will be your own tragic suicide.
(Chorus)
Forgot to say Hello - forgot to say hello…
Let it roll, let’s go down to the city.
Forgot to say hello - Forgot to say Hello…
Forgot to say Hello - forgot to say hello…
Let it roll, let’s go down to the city.
Forgot to say hello - Forgot to say Hello…
I forgot to say Hello to you.

hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello….. Forgot to say hello.
I’m like a rocket flying into the moon.
I’ll be a shiny ray of light.
They call me Superman, they think that I’m the man.
I’m glowing brighter than kryptonite.
Turn off the lights, let’s rejunite.
Let’s cum together, can you spare another dime.
Let’s take it right, into the night.
Don’t be possessive, don’t be possessive.

Forgot to say Hello - Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll
Forgot to say Hello - Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll
Forgot to say Hello - Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll
Forgot to say Hello – Cause I forgot to say hello to you
Let it roll, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll…………..
