Last year, Chilean hip-hop artist Ana Tijoux gave birth to her second child, a baby girl she named Emilia after her mother. At the same time, she was working on her third studio album, Vengo, and the experience of motherhood deeply affected the songwriting on the album.
Ana speaks with Latino USA about how becoming a parent changes your life forever, even when you are a music star.
Check out “Vengo,” the first single and title track from Ana’s new album.
