THE B-SIDE
Trinidad Cardona (Run It Up/Island)
2/27/18

WHAT IT IS: The 18-year-old Arizona native with boyish good looks and a mane of luxurious hair romantically coos and raps over the sped-up soul sample like he’s been doing it for decades. Phoenix native Cardona combines soul and R&B with fragments of hip-hop. His debut song, “Jennifer,” is about trying to piece his romance with a girl back together; it’s approaching 35m video views. Latest single “Dinero”—a rhythmic track punctuated with multi-linguistics—shows his versatility, as he flaunts his Spanish-speaking roots on the cut.
