Word entertainment’s Blanca announces highly-anticipated album, "The Heartbreak And The Healing,"
Nashville, Tenn. (July 15, 2022) — Award-winning Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Blanca announces her highly-anticipated album, The Heartbreak And The Healing, set to arrive September 23, 2022. Beginning today (7/15), fans can pre-order, pre-add and pre-save the powerhouse vocalist’s upcoming LP HERE. Additionally, Blanca previews the deeply personal record with the release of “New Day (feat. Jekalyn Carr),” available today — listen HERE, and watch the official music video for the undeniably optimistic track HERE.
Blanca’s third studio project, The Heartbreak And The Healing, offers two sides of the same story — the hurt and the redemption. Written in the wake of a painful divorce, the songstress vulnerably cracks her heart wide open on the new 14-track collection that beautifully showcases the merger of her unstoppable voice and her transparent lyricism. A diverse fusion of pop, Latin, hip-hop and Gospel, the full-length effort follows Blanca on a journey of self-discovery as she rises from the ashes stronger and more empowered than ever before. The fresh set features chart-topping hit “Even At My Worst” and current radio single “The Healing (feat. Dante Bowe),” which the pair recently performed at the 2022 K-Love Fan Awards, where Blanca was nominated for Female Artist of the Year.
Blanca continues to give listeners a glimpse into The Heartbreak And The Healing with today’s advance drop of “New Day.” A blend of pulsating hip-hop beats and a soulful groove, the pulls-no-punches selection welcomes five-time GRAMMY® nominee Jekalyn Carr on the second verse. Together, the two vocalists make a bold statement: They’re not settling, and good things are coming their way. Unbreakable, Blanca steps into new mercies as she charts a course all her own with a good deal of grit and determination on the confident new track, which she co-wrote with Anton Göransson, Isabella Sjöstrand, Taylor Hill and Carr.
The powerful pop vocalist of Puerto Rican descent, Blanca, was born in New York City and at a young age, moved to Florida, where she lives today. The Premios Arpa award recipient’s self-titled, debut solo album, following a successful Dove Award-winning run with Group 1 Crew, garnered two No. 1 radio singles, “Who I Am” and “Not Backing Down (feat. Tedashii),” the latter of which was featured on ESPN. Shattered, Blanca’s second album and a project that is very personal to her, added three back-to-back No. 1 radio singles (“Real Love,” “What If” and “Remind Me”) to her story, along with 104 million streams and more than 39 million views on YouTube. She received her first-ever Tecla Award nomination in October of 2019, in the category of Best Musician Creating Social Content. Blanca’s recent radio single, “Even At My Worst,” became her fifth No. 1 radio single and her new single, “The Healing (feat. Dante Bowe),” is available now. Her next solo project, The Heartbreak and The Healing, is available for pre-order/pre-add/pre-save now and the full release will be available everywhere Friday, September 23.
