  • Sech (birth name Carlos Isaias Morales Williams) is an Afro-Panamanian artist who started as a street vendor singing songs as people walked by. After being discovered by producer Dimelo Flow, Sech was signed to Rich Music and released his debut studio album Sueños in April 2019.
  • "Otro Trago" (English: "Another Drink") was released as a single on April 19, 2019. It finds Sech singing about a girl drowning her sorrows away at a club following a breakup. A translation of the chorus into English goes:

    When the DJ plays the song
    She dances like never
    And now in the dark
    I caught her forgetting her grief


    Fueled by alcohol, the girl is able to temporary escape her heartbreak on the dancefloor.
