Ramón Vega has spent the majority of the last year building his fanbase with over half-a-million followers, generating buzz amongst his peers and across social media. Vega is now taking the next step in his career with the release of his debut single and video, ‘Contigo Mami.’ Sampling Roy Orbison’s 1964 legendary hit ‘Pretty Woman,’ Vega croons to a Reggaeton beat, while adding regional Mexican flair, making the song muy caliente. Ecstatic over his debut, Vega chatted with ONE37pm’s Mike Boyd.
Boyd: And when was that?
Vega: It was May of 2020 when it started happening. That was when I began having conversations with Manny Vallarino from Sony Music—Manny knows my family and that is how I got signed.
Boyd: What do you want people to walk away thinking after they hear the song?
Vega: I want people to love more! This is an ode to women. I want men to dedicate it to all of the women out there, and walk away feeling more in love.
Boyd: What do you do in the studio to get the mood right?
Vega: The most important thing for me depends on the kind of mood I wake up in. If I wake up in a hyper mood, then I write party-like songs and music. If I wake up sad then that is what I am connecting with. I love the girls very much, and I write songs for the ladies. Once I get to the studio, I drink a lot of coffee, I like American coffee with lactose free milk or a cappuccino, and I always like to keep the lights red or blue.
