Summer is just around the corner in the North Hemisphere. It is the season of beach visits, car rides with the windows open and just spending time outside. For me, it is going to work with great tunes on a sunny day or enjoy an array of tunes while I enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful days with my window open.
One song perfect for the upcoming summer season is “RUTINA” by American Latin Pop/Hip-Hop artist C|PENA. It isn’t exactly crafted as a summer song, but it does have the vibes of one, especially one to enjoy anywhere from the office to the outdoors. Why? Let’s explore the song more in detail down below.
Make Your Dreams Come True
My ethos is to help make a positive change in the world. I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of a song in people’s hearts, and I believe that through music we can all make an impact, music is a currency for change, for happiness, for self-reflection. With “RUTINA” I wanted to accomplish just that. When life gets messy and complicated, and when our daily routine can get a little too heavy to carry, sometimes we want to run away, and we wonder what if, what if I follow my instincts and pursue what is right for me.C|PPEÑA
