His newest track, “RUMOURS,” in collaboration with Bhaskar, is dropping on April 15th, and a new single with Universal can be expected in late Spring/early Summer of 2022.
Da Silva shared with us his excitement to be playing gigs again in a world that has long been on pause, stating, “I want to test my upcoming music. It’s going to be the first time [in two years] that I’m going to play for a real crowd.”. Miami Music Week presents an excellent opportunity to do just that—play your music to an upbeat crowd—but Leandro is also hoping to use this experience to understand what’s next in music and find the pulse of the newest trend.

"When people tell me 'you do your job with a lot of passion... when someone recognizes the passion I put into my work and my job, I'm thrilled because it's true. I gave all my life to this job, and something I always say is, "I would do this for free" because I love to do it."

In the full interview, hear the story behind Leandro’s single “Ontas (Te Pago El Uber)”, his perspective on appreciation over comparison for an artist, and the importance of course-correcting for the future in our modern-day world.
