Chart-topping DJ, producer and songwriter Marshmello talks about diving into Latin music; the process of creating his first Latin album, Sugar Papi; working with Young Miko; the success of his track “El Merengue” with Manuel Turizo and more!

Marshmello:
It was interesting. I kind of showed up to Miami to write this album and I was like, “I don’t really have anything prepared.” Part of my job, my main job, is on-the-spot creation.

Lyndsey Havens:
Yeah.

Marshmello:
Just making it, you know what I mean? Making it work. Yo, what’s up? It’s Marshmello and this is Billboard News.

Lyndsey Havens:
Hey, I’m Lyndsey Havens for Billboard News, and I’m here with the chart-topping, DJ, producer and songwriter Marshmello!

Marshmello:
What’s going on?

Lyndsey Havens:
What’s up, man?

Marshmello:
Chilling.

Lyndsey Havens:
You’re no stranger to our charts. We have a lot of firsts to talk about with you right now. You have a major label debut album coming out: Sugar Papi, first Latin album, first proper album, new artists on every song.

Marshmello:
First album, yeah, a major label album.

Lyndsey Havens:
Tell us a bit about how and when the idea for this album even came about.

Marshmello:
I’ve always been eager to kind of make a body of work. I wasn’t sure when the right time was. Sony Latin reached out to me and was like, “Hey, would you like to do a Latin album?” And I’d always wanted to tap into Latin music and it just seemed like a perfect time to first knock out the album that I’ve always wanted to do and Latin and everybody was so cool and so nice. It was a no-brainer.

Lyndsey Havens:
Did you ever think that Latin would be your first album?

Marshmello:
Even though I wasn’t putting out Latin songs, over the years, I just befriended so many people, so many Latin artists. I knew it would happen, I just wasn’t sure when and it was just kind of sent by the universe.

Lyndsey Havens:
Yeah. I mean, what conversations did you have with Sony Latin about the appetite for this right now?

Marshmello:
I wasn’t just gonna go and make this like, huge, every biggest artist in the world on a Latin album, like, I’m just gonna work with artists that I vibe with, and that I just like, genuinely like their music, you know? And so I think, like, you’ll see, like, on the tracklist and who I worked with, you’d be like, OK, like, just, like, a good vibe.
