“Teddy Bears” is the newest single from Panamanian pop artist Yael Danon. Produced by Joel Iglesias, it was released together with a nice, colourful video. The track is, in fact, taken from the young singer’s upcoming Diary Girl EP. “‘Teddy Bears’ is basically that good and SMART friend who’s warning you about this new guy you’re just starting to get to know (which she dated not – so – long ago), and which you’re already crushing on,” explians Yael. “The song highlights all the cute stupid sh*t you’re falling for, instead of looking at the big picture… he’s just another mistake. Just like your friend got hurt from him in the past, you will too. I probably need to listen to my own advice…lol.“

The LP arrived paired with the music video for the title-track. “On My Sleeve” is a bouncy and melodic trap track that showcases Noiir’s ability deliver bars and smooth hooks. About the whole album, the artist remarked, “I really wanted this project to speak to who I was as an artist. Not just zero in on one aspect of my artistry, I was very deliberate in how I approached every record. I believe my gift is my ability to write to anything but the challenge was doing that making something that was seamless. Something that from start to finish made absolutely sense but listened to individually record by record, left their own distinct impression. It was difficult yet fulfilling to push myself in so many directions but I’m glad I took on the challenge as my growth as an artist is evident throughout this body work.“
