Watch out world, there’s a new teen queen on the scene. Singer Sammi Sanchez is releasing her newest single “Talk” and we literally cannot stop listening to it.

The 17-year-old up-and-coming artist draws inspiration from Demi Lovato and has had a lot of support from Radio Disney when she released her first song, “Butterflies.” Ever since, her career has rocketed to adoring fans with more new music. We are so excited to see where her journey takes her.


“Talk” is now available on iTunes and trust us when we say this: you need to download it, like, now because it’s everything.

Sammi will also be releasing her music video for “Talk” tomorrow, so make sure to keep an eye out. We know her “Sammurais” will!

We got to hear what Sammi had to say about her music and her plans for the future.

Q: Where did the inspiration for your songs "Butterflies" and "Talk" come from?

A: “Butterflies" was a song written by my manager Lucas Prata and Valentin. "Butterflies" is about getting that nervous feeling (butterflies) in your stomach and just an overall feel-good relatable song. “Talk" is my latest single, I wrote this song with Matthew Tishler and Maria Christensen. “Talk" is about a guy that seems interested in you but when around other people he doesn’t give you the time of day. Basically he is all “Talk”!

Q: Who is your biggest role model and why do you look up to them?

A: My biggest role model would have to be Demi Lovato, I’ve looked up to her ever since I was little. Demi does it all… sings, dances and acts. I strive to be like her. 

Q: What was your reaction when you first heard your song on the radio?

A: When i first heard “Butterflies" on Radio Disney I was so excited and overjoyed. It’s so awesome to think that your music is on the radio where millions and millions of people tune in to listen. It’s such a crazy feeling of adrenaline and happiness. I am SO grateful for my Radio Disney family, they are the best! 🙂

Q: What do you want your listeners to take from your music?

A: I want them to be able to relate and put themselves in the music, whether it be a sad song or happy song. I want my listeners to connect and feel like the song was specifically written for what they are going through.
