Puerto Rican artist Myke Towers does nothing without giving it his all. From his fourth studio album La Vida Es Una — a kaleidoscope of genres like alt-pop and reggae that span across the 23 tracks — to his collaborations with acts like Daddy Yankee, Selena Gomez, and J Balvin. And with a Grammy nom, a feverish fanbase, and more on the way, Towers has a lot to be excited about.

Following the release of Towers’ new album La Vida Es Una, Schön! enlists him to compile his curated playlist with his thoughts on fashion, music, and more. 

Hey Myke, what are you up to right now?

Hey, what’s good? I just finished having lunch after having worked out at the gym.

If someone asked you what your origin story was, how would you describe it? 

This is going to sound crazy but I feel that my origin story can be described as if a lightning had struck me and had given me the power to create music, along with a combination of life’s circumstances. 

Describe your style in 3 words.

Unpredictable, avant-garde and classic

What is the most precious thing in your wardrobe?

A jacket that my mother gave me – I believe it’s from the brand Kith.

Which living person do you most admire? 

Michael Jordan.

What was the last book you read?

“Relentless: From Great to Unstoppable.”

If you could play any venue, which one would it be? 

Madison Square Garden in New York.

Your fourth album LA VIDA ES UNA is one where you challenged yourself and took risks. What was the biggest challenge and risk that you took?

The biggest risk overall on this album that I took is to bet on myself and prove that I can do more than what my fans expected from me. Experimenting with new sounds and rhythms, that are not what I usually deliver and something that my fans aren’t used to.

Back home in Puerto Rico.
