Just like the rest of the world, Ivy Queen has been in quarantine during this global coronavirus pandemic. During her time at home, la Reina del Reggaeton turned her feelings into a new hit that is definitely appropriate for this time. Antídoto is slightly different from her usual upbeat tempos but the message packs a serious punch. The Puerto Rican singer hopes to encourage and inspire with the song. “This time has made me more emotional as an artist, resulting in a concern about what we are going to leave for others to inherit,” she tells HOLA! USA. “This led me to name my most recent single Antídoto because we need to be aware of spreading love and faith.”
Keep reading to see what else she has been doing during this time and where she loves spending most of her days.
