HOP Music and Raquela re-unite for more dance floor power! And this time Billboard is recognizing them! Since their first release together back in 2015, SUMMERTIME turned out some top charting positions on DJ TIMES plus many other major American charting systems. No their new EP single, FEELS LIKE LOVE has started climbing Billboards Top 50 Dance Chart on Feb. 22nd, 2020. They're asking all their fans to please follow the song and help speak out (or post) about the song everywhere and as often as possible.
Raquela was spotted on Facebook and Instagram LIVE almost every morning (at pacific standard time) talking about the song and a new controversial challenge she wants to throw at all recording artists. She's calling it the FEELS LIKE LOVE CHALLENGE and she wants to start it the 1st of June, 2020. She wants to make a one year challenge, daring them all to write songs that only contain "positive" messages. More to come on that later.
This EP release will include 12 EDM remixes by Bimbo Jones, Fhil B and Leo Frappier, LA Rush, Tweaka Turner, Wayne Numan, Twisted Dee and Diego Fernandez, Rob Moore, Hawthorne and Rinaldo Montezz. Along wiht new remix artists like George Von Liger, Maickel Telussa and Digital Freaks. When asked why Raquela has so many mixes in this release, she answered, "I'll give you two reasons... I've been in this business since 1999. Since then, I've made quite a few friends who I've been able to stay loyal to. But mostly because they found out about the positive challenge I'm putting out to the industry and many of them also wanted to get on that wagon with me."

Local Voice Teacher Back In Music Scene With New Dance Track Hitting Clubs October 2017
September 27, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Award winning, Broadway actress and American Dance music recording artist, Raquela, has been storming the dance charts worldwide since 1999 with Dance hits like “Falling” (Chris The Greek), “Nothin’ More To give” (House Godfather legend, Mickey Oliver) and "Summertime" (HOP Music). She went back home to Elk Grove, CA to give back to her community and teach voice privately, full time. Due to constant emails from DJ all over the world, she felt it was safe to come back to the music business again. Her students are so ecstatic over it. "...but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop teaching", Raquela warned.
In October, 2017, Raquela will be bringing a fresh cross-over pop sound with “These Tears”. Raquela said, “This project has brought me so much satisfaction with my new-found writing collaboration with Pop recording artist, Xavier Toscano ("Apologies Wasted", "Never Wanna Leave", "Runaway"). This is going to be a seriously exciting release.” Raquela’s constant powerhouse vocals recently worked out a new label deal on RE Music - www.raquela.com
The song was best described as “…trying not to reveal vulnerability during a heart-break.” Meanwhile, you can hear ironic ‘crying’ undertones in Raquela’s beautiful vocal performance. This EP Single is expected to be packed with 7 EDM remixes, giving a total of 14 incredible mixes! Included in the remix line-up are fellow Billboard charters, Klubjumpers, including Qubiq and San Francisco favorite, Jeff Morena, plus MORE. Award-winning filmmaker and editor, Jethro Patalinghug presents a damaged yet seductively hunting music video that will be introduced to the masses in October as well.
"Don't you worry, voice lessons will still be up and running during the release and I expect to see all my students on time for their lessons" - www.ElkGroveSings.com
