Sabrina Claudio’s new album, “Based on a Feeling,” is out now. Based On A Feeling is Sabrina’s first new music since her Christmas album in 2020.
Sabrina Claudio, a critically acclaimed and platinum-selling Puerto Rican and Cuban singer, has released her highly anticipated new album Based On A Feeling via Atlantic Records today.
In Based On A Feeling, Sabrina fearlessly projects sensuality, energy, and soul beyond her limitations. Stint (Gallant) and Blue Rondo (Young Thug) produce “Better Version,” Jonah Christian (Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, 6LACK, Burna Boy, Normani, Anderson. Paak) and Sad Money (Khalid, Pink Sweat$, Chloe & Halle) produce “Put On Repeat,” and Jeff Gitty (J. Cole, H.E.R., Mac Miller, Anderson. Paak), Roy Lenzo (Lil Sabrina also takes over as the sole writer, presenting the most complete portrait of herself as an artist and a woman.
Sabrina has this to say about the new album:
“I’m so beyond proud of this evolution that is ‘Based On A Feeling.’ The intention behind creating the album and the energy that was exuded in every session can be felt throughout each song. After a two year unanticipated break from writing, caused by various discouraging experiences that halted my desire to create, I managed to find the motivation to get back in after having a conversation with someone on my team. Not only did this conversation spark my ambition, but it also titled the album. ‘Based On A Feeling’ stems from the promise I made of only making decisions based on a feeling of love and pure intentions. I took this idea and allowed it to guide me through the creative process of this album in every single aspect and I could not be more fulfilled with the final result.”
The 11-track album was announced accompanying a lovely and seductive music video for the new single “Don’t Make Me Wait.” Before harp glistens, Sabrina’s voice barely registers above a whisper with a command, “Kiss me, I’m in need of assurance.”
Based On A Feeling is Sabrina’s first new music since her 2020 holiday album Christmas Blues, an eight-song collection featuring The Weeknd and Alicia Keys and featuring Sabrina’s favorite holiday songs.
Sabrina organized a listening session in Los Angeles ahead of the release of Based On A Feeling, where fans received a sneak peek of the album in Dolby Atmos sound. It was sold out in just 10 minutes.
Sabrina Claudio is quite clear about what she wants. To some extent, the platinum-selling Puerto Rican/Cuban diva blames her strong instincts on her Virgo zodiac sign, but the truth is that she discreetly hustled to establish her vision. She confidently expresses sensuality, energy, and soul beyond limits in her music after a series of critically acclaimed productions, sold out headline tours, and 2 billion streams.
But she’s always taken her own route. Sabrina began to captivate audiences with her 2016 first EP, Confidently Lost, which featured a DIY take on alternative R&B. Following it, the full-length About Time yielded the gold-certified “Belong to You” (feat. 6LACK), and 2018’s No Rain, No Flowers kept her momentum going with a sold-out headline tour. With Truth Is, Sabrina achieved new heights in 2019.
Complex praised it as “grandiose,” while Variety called it “one of the top albums of the genre last year chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier chevalier cheval Sabrina released Christmas Blues to round out the year, rethinking the holidays through a sultry lens with a little help from The Weeknd on the title track and Alicia Keys on “Winter Time.” Sabrina sold out an expanded vinyl version of her debut album About Time twice in 2021.
She’s appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and James Corden’s Late Late Show, as well as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and Life Is Beautiful’s lineups. On her 2022 project, Based On A Feeling, she takes the reigns as the only writer and paints the clearest portrait of herself as an artist and as a woman (Atlantic Records).
