“I’m going to use my music to carry the message of all those who aren’t being heard,” Ricky expressed (via Billboard). “When I returned to the studio, everything that I had done musically expired because I had poetic material in my head to share with the world after what happened in the streets of Puerto Rico.”

Ricky said the album will be titled Movimiento and will contain 12 songs. “In all of them, I will in some way express everything that I experienced,” he said, alluding to the demonstrations. “All of the stories I heard from people who simply were not being heard.”
