LOS ANGELES (Univision Records) - "Asi Soy" [This Is Me] marks the anticipated and successful return of Flakiss, the first female artist of West Coast Latin hip hop in the United States. This album is her second with Univision Records and will be released to retail stores in June 2005.

"Liberate" [Free Yourself], her debut album, placed Flakiss on the U.S. Latin hip-hop radar screen and established her as the first female Latino rapper to enter a movement that not only was just emerging but also widely dominated by male artists. Nonetheless, Flakiss imposed her style and her position as the voice for Latinas in the competitive world of Latin hip-hop music and against all odds proved her talent and her desire to succeed in an unknown world.

"I am very excited and proud to be able to continue doing what I like most and also to continue representing my girls out there. Even though radio support is still very limited, young people still ask for this type of music, and as long as they ask for it, I'm gonna keep on recording. Spanish hip-hop is here to stay. 'Asi Soy' will give much to talk about and I'm sure that my girls and even guys are going to like it," stated Flakiss.

Comprised of 10 hip-hop tracks, "Asi Soy" is an assortment of club hits that are diverse, fun and upbeat. Its theme revolves around the artist's identity as a Chicana/ Latina in the U.S. and the role of Latinas as single mothers and women of great valor. The album will be available in an optional DVD combo packet that will include her music videos "It's Friday Night," and "Party Y Mas Party," the first single off the album, a photo gallery and behind the scenes footage of the recording sessions.

With this new album, Flakiss hopes to encourage women to live life to the fullest without confusing freedom with decadence. "Women always have to do things within certain limits and not over due it with excesses, because otherwise you open yourself up for major misunderstandings. This album is about that, about living responsibly but at the same time knowing how to take full advantage of life and those great moments it has to offer," concluded Flakiss.
