In honor of the 10th year anniversary of Kat Deluna’s 2007 hit “Whine Up” Press Pass Latino caught up with the singer, who was born in The Bronx, New York to Dominican parents, to talk about the success of the song and shared 5 things most people don’t know about her.
“I wrote Whine Up with Redone and another writer, on the spot 10 years ago…the lyrics came instantly to my head,” said Deluna. “The minute I heard the beat, I knew it was the one.”
1. Her favorite movie of all time is Disney’s “Aladdin”
“Aladdin never let the blocks on the road stop him from getting to his destination,” she said.
“Despite, Jafar’s many attempts to trick him and try to stop him from reaching his destiny…Aladdin never let that derail him from his path.”

2. When she travels abroad she loves to visit local supermarkets.
“I love to see all the different foods that other countries sell”, said Deluna.
When she visited Dubai she tried Camel’s milk and now that’s all she drinks! Kat Deluna says she buys it from Amish distributors in Pennsylvania and has it delivered “like the milk man in a white truck.”
3. If she wasn’t a singer, she would be a criminal lawyer.
Kat Deluna confesses she loves watching “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
“My favorite character is detective Olivia Benson,” she said. “I identify with her because I feel that we share a lot of the same personality traits, she’s strong but compassionate at the same time.”
4. She has a “Green Thumb” and tends to a food garden
“I wanted to eat organic food and food that was healthier so I just decided to do it myself and plant my own food. Now, I even grow my own eggplants!” said Deluna.
