La Dona, can’t eat clout, pop music, indie rock

Following the release of her latest EP Can’t Eat Clout, La Doña returns to share a new music video for the title track. The live session produced, directed, and led by La Doña was recorded at Different Fur Studios San Francisco, CA with the contributions of her childhood collaborators and friends Naomi Garcia Pasmanick, Tano Brock, Ruben Sandoval, her father, Miguel Govea, Alexis Harnage, Amanda Magaña, Darian Gray, Eos Black, Gaby Aldaz, Josh Hari, Odalys Caro, and Rebecca Rodriguez.

Can’t Eat Clout portrays a young femme artist falling in love with herself, her lover, and her art. The project asserts La Doña’s mastery as a composer and director and presents themes of creative-liberty, anticapitalism, and community resilience. It maps the rise and descent of these three love stories in an electrifying journey that weaves in and out of genres, incorporating La Doña’s expertise in cumbia, salsa, oldies and reggaeton. The EP promotes the amalgam of musical traditions with the contemporary movements of hyphy and reggaeton, showcasing stylistic proclivities birthed from the soil of the Bay Area.

La Doña has steadily become an unequivocal artist to watch. She was chosen as one of YouTube’s Foundry Artists, was awarded the 2020 Yerba Buena Gardens Festival Mini-Commission, and performed at Tecate’s “El Patio” and Redbull’s “EEUU de Bass.” She also released her previous EP, Algo Nuevo, which was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the 6 best albums of 2020, and one of the standout tracks from the project, “Quién Me La Paga” was the first of The New York Times Magazine’s “19 Songs that Matter Now.” La Doña’s 2022 single “Penas Con Pan” was also recently featured in former-President Barack Obama’s new 2023 playlist.
