You might want to start getting a hang of using the hashtag #Ilevitable and spreading the word around, because it sounds promising! The face behind the name and label is Ileana Cabra Joglar, who just revealed her solo project.

She probably sounds familiar because she's no other than the little sister of Calle 13's Eduardo Cabra Martinez (Visitante) and Rene Perez Joglar (Residente), who also forms part of the Puerto Rican group with her amazing vocals and is known as PG-13.

"I want to announce that I'm working on what will be my first album. Soon I'll let you know more :)," she wrote on Twitter, adding her website's link and hashtag.

The 26-year-old songstress teased her fans with a 40-second clip of what to expect ---which already looks awesome! “When I sing and interpret a song, I try to reach that special place within a song,” she said in the video. “Then, little by little, I let myself fit into the music.”

After 10 years in the biz with five critically-acclaimed studio albums, 21 Latin Grammys and three Grammys, Calle 13 announced a temporary break. They gave their last concert together in Toronto, Canada ending July. Though we're bummed with the news, we're stoked for their new professional ventures, especially Ile's!
