● Tell me in a few words, who you are. How would you describe

yourself in a short story.

Nat. (AKA Natalia Ramos) is a young Panamanian and Puerto Rican

Latin Artist. Born in La República de Panama and raised in Virginia

Beach, Virginia, Nat. debuted with her first single “Brutal” in 2020.

With a heavy influence, Nat. continues to ascend, bringing a

powerful voice in Reggaetón.


● What’s your stage name and how did you come up with it?

My stage name is Nat. Growing up as a kid, my closest friends would call

me “Nat”. I changed it to my stage name so people could feel more

personal towards me and my music and also because my name would

get mispronounced all of the time.


● What got you into music?

My family did. My mom would play her favorite artists on a constant

rotation. She still loves playing music from Sade, Celia Cruz, Mana, Toni

Braxton, Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson, El General, Proyecto Uno,

Madonna, Aerosmith, Inxs, and Red Hot Chili Peppers playing. every time

we had to clean the house. She would have a huge book of CDs in the

car as well full of all different types of genres of music. My Dad played

the trumpet. He would always practice in the house when my sister and I

were younger. He would always have rock music or salsero bands

playing in the house. When my sister and I were in middle, we picked up

guitar and bass lessons and listened to Daddy Yankee, Ivy Queen, and

Don Omar on a heavy rotation especially on our game days when we

played softball.


● What was life like growing up?

If I could write my life growing up in Virginia Beach, I feel like I would be

able to turn it into a movie. I was a military brat. I luckily grew up living

out my best and most unforgettable memories there. I learned my

biggest lessons in life growing up in that city. Which makes me much

more appreciative of my music career.

Who is your inspiration? What keeps you going to get up daily and put

effort into your music career?

Myself. I am my own motivator with the love and support of those in my

corner. That’s what keeps me going everyday. I’ve learned that people

can be on your side. But, those in your corner help you understand that

you put the most effort into being the best and highest version of

yourself first.


● What is your creative process like? What is the meaning behind

your current single?

I always take from my experiences to help me write my music. The

imagery in my head helps me create the story that I want to tell.

The meaning behind my current single “Brutal” is just a song to have fun

to. “Brutal” is a slang word Puerto Ricans say meaning, dope, awesome,

or really good.


● What is the name of the current single/ep/album that you are

pushing? Do you prefer people to buy it or stream? And why?

I have a new single coming out soon. I haven’t unveiled the project name

just yet! But, it’s coming soon! As long as the people love my music, it

doesn't matter if they buy or stream. I’d just be happy that they connect

to it.


● With the industry changing so much, would you stay indie or sign to

a label? Why and why not?

It all depends on the deal. Overall, I want to work with a team that

collaborates with my creative freedom where I get to own my masters

and invest into my career with good intentions.


● Do you feel like the music industry has went down since the

pandemic? Why or why not? Where you affected by the pandemic

with music or everyday life?

Yes and no. I feel like many great artists emerged to find their voice in a

time where life changed drastically. I also feel as if the music industry

became the Wild Wild West 2.0.

I was impacted by the pandemic. I was unfortunately furloughed at one

point during the start of the pandemic. During that time, I took to music

to create my songs.


● If you were given a chance to sit down and have a business dinner

with a celebrity who would it be and why?

I would love to have dinner with Ivy Queen. She’s the queen of

Reggaeton. I want to know more about her experiences, take aways, and

lessons she learned about her life, family, and her career so that I know

how to continue carving my own path in the industry. She is a wise

woman that keeps it real.


● How do you balance everyday life tied into your music career?

I focus on my time to rest. I work my normal job during the day,

workout, and focus on a different project each day so that I don't feel

overwhelmed.


● Tell me about your most memorable moment in your career?

My most memorable moment in my career was working with Cherish

Mie on “The Weekend”. I was with her along with two of our good

friends, Dexter and Gabby. We wrote and recorded my verse for her

song in about an hour and vibe to it on repeat the entire time.


● What style of music do you prefer to make? Would you ever try a

different lane?

I prefer to make Reggaeton and Latin R&B. If I would ever try a different

lane, I would love to incorporate pop and Brazilian Funk


● Do you have a celebrity crush?

Anitta for sure. I would make her my wife one day.


● Is there anyone who you would collab with right now?

I would love to work with Ozuna or Tokisha.


● Who is the producer and engineer behind your music?

The Producers that I’veI worked with are Gabe Niles, Mike Mizzle, Calvin

Merazh, Norva Reign. My engineer is Paul Arnold.


● What are you currently working on and what is next for you?

I’m currently working on my EP. Soon, I’ll have it out soon before the

summer time. I have a couple of shows lined up to perform at as well.


● When it comes to fashion, what is your dressing style ?

In the words of Bad Bunny, “YHLQMDLG”.


● What is your creative process like and who inspired you to make

music?

I just put together what comes to mind. Visually or sonically, if

there’s a theme I want to go by, a story that I want to tell , I just

write it out.

Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee inspired me to make music.


● If you could open up for one celebrity who would it be and why?

I would want to open up for Bad Bunny. He brings an experience to his

shows and music that I would love to be a part of.

with our readers?

I have too many to share.

career?

I would probably continue my professional dance career.
