From the streets of Brooklyn to the studio in Los Angeles to the big screen with the critically acclaimed summer blockbuster In The Heights, celebrated Artist and Actor Anthony Ramos has made his presence known everywhere in 2021. Today, he proudly presents his anxiously awaited second full-length album, Love And Lies [Republic Records], allowing listeners to get closer than ever.
Executive produced by his longtime friend and collaborator Will Wells with collaborators including songwriter Castle, producers Andres Torres and Mauricio Rengifo (Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Justin Bieber, Nicky Jam) and Jesse Shatkin [Rihanna, Sia], the 12-track project showcases every side of the dynamic and diverse multihyphenate blending a mix of R&B and pop sensibilities with Ramos’ Latin roots.
“Sometimes, it’s hard to differentiate things you love with the lie that they are, or vice versa,” he states. “Something may seem like a lie, but it’s really love. You think, ‘I love you, but I have to be honest with myself, because I’m telling myself that this will work when it really can’t.’ There’s a blurred line, so you wonder whether you’re going to put yourself first or this other person. You’re caught between love and lies. That’s what this album is really all about.”
What’s more, he just released the official video for “Lose My Mind” directed by Blythe Thomas.
