This week’s MTV PUSH artist is Debi Nova. This L.A.-via-Costa Rica singer is heating up the early summer with her breezy, catchy single “Drummer Boy,” a fun, infectious hit of Latin-flavored dance pop that reflects her world-music roots and her latest album, Luna Nueva. Her earthy sound, which Debi herself describes as “tropical-soul,” has caught the attention of Mark Ronson, Sean Paul, Black Eyed Peas and Ricky Martin, all of whom she’s collaborated with.
