Jadi Torres is a Spanglish (Spanish/English) singer who is finally blossoming into the music and entertainment career she deserves. As a mainstay in the Latin music community audiences in the Christian hip-hop community, broader Christian market, and now even the mainstream music industry are starting to take notice and it’s all because of a step out of her comfort zone.
Torres got involved with Rhyan LaMarr and Red Guerilla Entertainment and was selected for a small role in the film North of the 10. In addition to that, her song “Pa Mi Gente” with Mod G was selected as one of the movie’s singles. It was remixed with Fern, Angie Rose, and Rhyan LaMarr on it. The music video features George Lopez, Yancy Arias, Don Benjamin, and Tosin Morohunfola.
We spoke to Jadi at the We Love Christian Music Awards in Memphis a few weeks back where she also performed her single live with Mod G. It was here she shared her excitement at the new audiences that have been able to hear and see her talent.

“I’m blessed, super blessed,” she said of the new people in her corner and surrounding her. “Red Guerilla has definitely helped my career in these last two years…I’m looking to do a whole lot more with the acting and doing soundtracks like that.”
Jadi’s love for music was birthed out of the musical melting pot of living in the Bronx where from neighborhood to neighborhood you an amalgamation of black, white, Hispanic, and Asian communities living together.
“My love for music, I have to give it up to New York, the Bronx,” she revealed. “To me, everything music is almost like New York. I grew up listening to hip-hop, R&B, and soul which is what you hear in my music.”
Over the last several years Latin music has really exploded into the mainstream lexicon of culture. Although these artists have always been there, you can see them almost infiltrating every level of entertainment at a high level. This includes hip-hop with someone like Cardi B, WWE and Bad Bunny, and on and on.
Some of the biggest and most-streamed artists in the world make explicitly Spanish music.
“There’s a lot that’s going on in the Latin market that isn’t necessarily showcased. If you look up on Spotify you see Bad Bunny, JPalvin, doing ridiculous numbers across the board,” she stated. “We are just now starting to creep in on things like the Dove Awards, the Grammy’s itself not Latin Grammy’s. I think it’s taken some courageous artists to step in and say, ‘we’re here’. I’m hoping to do the same.”

For now, as Jadi works to elevate herself, she’s working on her next music project, which she promises will have ridiculous features. She’s going to continue acting and has a TV show lined up too.
“Really excited for everything happening,” Jadi shared. “Always wanted to get into acting. I had five-year plans and goals. It just happened at a time when I wasn’t expecting it.”
