Umbe B urges a clandestine love to tell the truth to her man with his seductive new Latin-pop single and video Confiesale — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Spinning an all-too-familiar tale, Umbe B delivers a fiery retelling of a toxic love triangle, battling with internal impulses while trying to act with self-preservation. Dramatic storytelling is paired perfectly with hard-hitting string swells and perfectly timed breakdowns to create an all-encompassing visual novella.

Confiesale describes the ups and downs of a heated love affair — from the feelings of passionate love to the dread associated with getting caught and worse, losing a partner forever despite never really having them. This dichotomy is represented perfectly within lines such as “when I pull your hair that brings the devil out of me” stood next to “I am packing a 40 in case he is spying on us.”

Born in Cuba and faced with the hardships of growing up during an embargo, Umbe B found the value of family very early on. Despite growing up in areas with high levels of crime, he never strayed from the importance of family and friends, using that to bolster him as he worked his way into a better situation.

Although he arrived in Canada in 2019, Umbe B’s music career has been progressing steadily since 2013, when he founded the urban group Los Extraterrestres. Focusing on creating subgenres of urban music while innovating around the dance scene in Cuba, the group found great success. In 2016, they were nominated for one of Cuba’s most renowned music shows, Los Lucas, where they were spotted and hired by a European company to perform in Ibiza and Majorca. After his bandmates migrated to Europe he decided to move to Canada.

Umbe B’s music can most accurately be summed up as a mix of Latin reggaeton, dembow, and dancehall sounds — all perfectly intertwined with trap elements made popular in Western music. He uses his passion for these genres as a springboard for his love for Cuba to tell stories based on personal experiences, both in Canada and Cuba.
