Dominican-American singer-songwriter María Isabel recently shared the song “atrapada en el cielo”. This is the Spanish-language version of the title-track to her 7-track debut EP, Stuck in the Sky (2020). Alongside it, she unveiled a great music video directed by Dylan Knight.
“atrapada en el cielo” is a melodic R&B piece about the end of a relationship. About this version, María says: “‘Stuck in the Sky’ was never meant to be about an ending, but so many listeners interpreted it that way that I began to see it for myself. ‘atrapada en el cielo’ is me realising that this long-distance had reached its end and there was nowhere for us to go but in opposite directions. It sounds sad, but I felt really empowered by translating the lyrics to mean something entirely new. ‘Stuck in the Sky’ was me waiting around for the day we could be successfully be together for more than a few days at a time, and ‘atrapada en el cielo’ is me realising that I owed the time and energy I was giving the relationship to myself instead.“
