The artist says of the album title, “We have more species of orchid than anywhere on earth,” Kali says of Colombia’s national flower, which symbolizes love and fertility. “I always felt distinctly intrigued and magnetized by the flower. This album is inspired by the timeless, eerie, mystic, striking, graceful and sensual allure of the orchid. With this vast scope of fresh energy, I wish to redefine the way we look at Latinas in music.”

Orquídeas, Kali’s second Spanish-language album and fourth LP overall, features collaborations with some of the biggest names in Latin music, including global single “Muñekita” with El Alfa and JT from City Girls, “Te Mata,” Kali’s top Latin single debut to date, “Labios Mordidos” with Colombian singer Karol G and further collaboration with Peso Pluma and Rauw Alejandro.

Last October, Uchis shared a teaser on her Instagram page, which notably shared some similarities to how the singer teased her latest release, Red Moon In Venus. The video opened on a TV screen that reads: “Kali Uchis Album 4.” When Uchis’ hand pressed a button on the remote, it offered four language options: English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French. After she selected Spanish, the screen changed to a floral background with Orquídeas written over it.

In August, Uchis kicked off this new era of Spanish-language music with “Muñekita,” featuring Dominican dembow singer El Alfa and JT from City Girls.

Uchis’ last album Red Moon In Venus was released via Geffen Records to widespread critical acclaim in March and has been featured on several Best Of 2023 So Far lists from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Complex, The Washington Post, Variety, Billboard, and more.

The album became her first Top 10 charting album after debuting at No.4 on the Billboard 200 and features the Gold-certified “Moonlight” and collaborations with Summer Walker, Don Toliver, and Omar Apollo.

To celebrate the album, Uchis embarked on a sold-out, two-part headlining Red Moon In Venus Tour that wrapped earlier this month, which included stops at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in L.A, New York’s Radio City Music Hall and Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom.
