"Say what you want" seductively takes you on a gentle journey in how girl and boy are attracted in a night club setting. Imagine a crowded room no longer existing when you set your eyes on that one person who grabs your attention.

Review by Alex Henderson

There is a saying among Puerto Rican New Yorkers that goes as follows: you can take the nuyorican out of the Big Apple, but you can’t take the Big Apple out of the nuyorican. Musically speaking, Zulayka may be a perfect example. Zulayka is a bilingual nuyorican (Puerto Rican New Yorker) vocalist who grew up in Brooklyn and has since relocated to San Diego. If “Say What You Want” is any indication, though, moving 3000 miles and switching coasts didn’t change her musical outlook. This medium-tempo single reflects her New York City background with infectious, catchy results.

Zulayka is known for her modern R&B and dance-pop with a strong Latin flavor. San Diego, of course, has a huge Latin music scene, but much of the Latin music that is wildly popular on the West Coast is regional Mexican music (norteño, duranguense, mariachi, grupero, tierra caliente and banda) rather than the tropical Latin music that Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and Cubans on the East Coast are more likely to listen to. The Latin influence in Zulayka’s music is tropical and Caribbean rather than Mexican, and “Say What You Want” is an R&B/dance-pop jam that incorporates elements of hip-hop, salsa and reggaetón. One of Zulayka’s influences, in fact, is the Puerto Rican reggaetón star Ivy Queen, although Zulayka takes a decidedly bilingual approach rather than gravitating to Spanish-language audiences exclusively. Zulayka successfully fluctuates between English and Spanish on this tune, which finds her not only singing, but also rapping in a hip-hop style and chanting in a reggaetón style. Even though the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic elements let you know that Zulayka comes from an East Coast nuyorican background, she really spells it out when she boasts that she is “the chica preferida from the NYC” (in other words, the girl of choice from the Big Apple).

For this type of jam to work well, one needs an addictive groove, and “Say What You Want” delivers. Zulayka finds the groove and works it, and the result is an appealing demonstration of her ability to bring a definite sabor nuyorican (nuyorican flavor) to club-friendly R&B and dance-pop.
