Eric Lee released his solo debut Tejano single, “Tejano Pop,” produced by award-winning hitmaker Gabriel Zavala, on Monday, March 27. The track is the lead single from Eric Lee’s debut Tejano EP.
“This song is a story of a boy who grew up as the child of a Tejano singer, whose style may be a little different but nothing will stop him from carrying on the legacy of his family,” Eric Lee said about his upcoming single release.
Eric Lee Villarreal is the son of Lee Villarreal from Los Desperadoz. He is the third generation of Villarreal musicians, who officially joined Los Desperadoz on February 14, 2018, spending just over two years with the Latin Grammy-nominated group recording one album and becoming a part of the family legacy. Joining the band wasn’t a given because he was a Villarreal. Eric Lee was nervous to sing in front of his dad, not because of criticism but knowing that his dad was very influential in the Tejano genre.
“I have manifested this moment to share my own music and art with you y’all,” said Eric Lee. “I am beyond proud of myself for pushing through all the negativity nothing and no one will stop me from living out my dream!”
Eric Lee released a five-song EP, Toda La Noche, in 2021. The project was also produced by Zavala and was filled with different genres of music from pop Cumbia to dance. Now, the talented vocalist is forging his own path in the Tejano music industry with his unique sound, Tejano with a pop spin.
Zavala commented, “Eric is creating a new sound for the industry and he is ready to give it his all! We’ve been in the studio for months now preparing his latest collections of songs and let me tell you, I couldn’t be more excited to be his producer!”
“Tejano Pop” from Eric Lee is available on all digital music platforms. The Tejano EP is expected to be released within the next few months.
