Many are just discovering Amara La Negra, her beautiful Afro, and her unabashed Afro-Latina pride for the first time thanks to the hit VH1 reality television series Love and Hip Hop Miami. But the Miami–born, Dominican–rooted dynamo has been making waves in the entertainment industry since childhood.
Born Dana Danelys De Los Santos, La Negra released her successful single "Quittate La Ropa" back in 2012. And there will be much more where that came from as she just signed a major record deal and is set to release a new song in the next couple of months. In between studio sessions and gracefully clapping back at ill-informed comments about black beauty and natural hair, we talked to La Negra about how she maintains her Afro, when she decided to go natural, racism in the Afro-Latino community, and more. - Allure Magazine
