Jay Ulloa Reveals 5 Secrets Behind Making New Song “Manos Al Aire”

Today is a BIG day for Jay Ulloa… his song “Manos Al Aire” is finally out!

The track is a huge deal for the 16-year-old Mexican singer, as it’s the first one he’s ever recorded in both English and Spanish (Spanglish)! The Latin fusion track was co-written by Ulloa, produced by Alkatraks (Maiffo + Karloff), and is bound to be another song that’s worthy of your fiery summer playlist.

To get the inside scoop on the song, Celeb Secrets asked Jay to reveal five behind-the-scenes secrets from making it that you won’t hear anywhere else! Did you know that former New District member Sean Cavaliere also helped write some of the lyrics?

Take a listen to the song below. If you like what you hear, make sure to share your thoughts by leaving a reaction under!

  1. Manos Al Aire is the first mix of Spanish and English song I’ve ever recorded!

  2. When I was recording final vocals, my friend Sean Cavaliere stopped by the studio and we ended up re-writing some lyrics.

  3. When I was on my way to the studio, I was smelling an air freshener and ended up spilling it all over myself. So I smelled like tropical breeze the whole time while recording!

  4. The artwork was shot by my friend Brett Erickson while we BBQing Trip Tip.

  5. The song is about this girl in LA I met. She was always so tense and I wanted her to live in the moment and have fun on the date we were on.
