¿Cómo Sabré? is a colorful electro-pop jam with a tropical vibe, produced by Mandalan and featuring vocals by Miami-based EDM singer Emarie. The music video tells the story of a woman divided between emotion and reason, caught in a love triangle with two lovers. It stars dancers Jackie Ramos, Omar Canedo and Nikki Keeshin, and features original choreography by Nikki Keeshin.
StereoStickman.com: "Featuring blissfully organic, crisp and clean layers of instrumentation, the single feels all at once nostalgic and beautifully fresh. There’s a contemporary finish to the production, yet the underlying Latin rhythms inject a world-music flavor that keeps things broadly inclusive and easy to get into."
Novamusic.blog: "A percussive beat gives the legs to this exquisitely danceable piece, a warm and dreamy soundscape stands out in the background, evoking exotic scenographies that refer us to distant places kissed by the sun."
