She stepped into the spotlight in 2013 with her single "Be My Baby," and in a span of two years 20-year-old Leslie Grace is showcasing her new mature sound.

The songstress, who was born in The Bronx, New York and raised in Davie, Florida, is celebrating her new EP called "Lloviendo Estrellas" (Raining Stars), her first production as a signed artists with Sony Music Latin.

In honor of her new stepping stone, the young bachata-pop-R&B singer has released her very emotional and powerful single "Como Duele El Silencio."

"This new single is something that I've had in the vault for a while. First time I heard it was three years ago, but it wasnt complete. I loved the melody and for some reason we just kept it there," Grace told Latin Times. "When I started working on 'Lloviendo Estrellas,' that was one of the first songs that I wanted to record. It was perfect timing. I definitely matured throughout those three years," she added, stating that the track is one of her favorite's due to it's cool element of a gospel choir.

Though the "Princess of Bachata" has been dropping albums since 2009, her new album is one she's very excited about and represents a new stage in her life.

"I wanted to name it something that meant something. 'Lloviendo Estrellas' usually means a shower of blessings and a lot of wonderful things have been happenning since I've been working on this album. I wanted to name it 'Lloviendo Estrellas' because of this new era, chapter of my life," the Latin Grammy and Latin Billboard nominee said.

"We're planning a second single, there's also many projects coming up in the next months, but it's a secret until now. There will definitely be more new music," she said. "I'm already writing [songs] for my LP in 2016. 'Lloviendo Estrellas' is a little taste of what's coming. It's going to be something different --a full album of about 11 songs. I'll be working on that while I promote this EP."
