Nayer Regalado (born August 2, 1988), better known as Nayer, is a Cuban-American singer. Nayer gained recognition in 2011 after being featured on Pitbull's hit single "Give Me Everything", produced by Afrojack, and releasing her single "Suave (Kiss Me)" featuring Pitbull and Swedish-Congolese singer-songwriter Mohombi which was a success in Europe and the Middle East. Her other known collaborations include songs with Enrique Iglesias, Fonseca, Yomil (of the Cuban duo Yomil y el Dany), Jean-Roch and Melissa.

Early life[edit]

Nayer Regalado was born on August 2, 1988 in New Jersey. Her family moved to Miami when she was 3 months old. Her parents were born in Cuba but her mother, Maria, also has Lebanese & Brazilian ancestry.

Nayer began a singing and acting career at the age of 7.

Career[edit]

Nayer has appeared in numerous ads, commercials, soap operas, carnivals, foundations, charity events and TV programs. She has participated in a major talent competition named "Star Search" and she has also appeared in television show Sábado Gigante, and in a show called La piñata loca (broadcast through Univision). Supported by her parents, she moved to Los Angeles when she was 14, to record a six-song demo. After shopping the demo to labels, Nayer secured a major recording deal at Miami-based and Latin music-oriented Sony Discos which was looking for a voice for a new track called "First Kiss (Primer Beso)". Recorded by Nayer at the age of 16, produced and remixed by DJ Fluid in both English and Spanish, "First Kiss (Primer Beso)" is a dance song, and climbed dance music charts soon after its release in June 2002 hitting the Billboard Top 40 Dance Charts. However, due to business reasons, Nayer’s debut album was never released.

Nayer was discovered by Cuban-American rapper Pitbull in 2009 whom she had the opportunity to do a collaboration with a few years back while signed to Sony. She immediately got in with producers and started working on her music & song-writing, while in the process she appeared on various videos of the rapper from his albums Rebelution (2009), Armando (2010) and Planet Pit (2011), such as "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" and "Shut It Down" (feat. Akon). She then did a joint venture with RedOne who quickly believed that he saw the Star quality and the "IT" factor in Nayer, "She's a Superstar!". Nayer was also featured on Enrique Iglesias' single "Dirty Dancer (Remix)" along Usher and Lil Wayne, and she held a cameo appearance in Enrique Iglesias' "I Like How It Feels" music video.

She was also a featured artist on Pitbull's smash "Give Me Everything", along with Ne-Yo and Afrojack. Nayer was nominated in 2012 for MTV Video Music Award as Best Collaboration, and up for four Latin Billboard Nominations in 2013 with "Give Me Everything", being the 2nd female to have the most Nominations.[1]

On August 2, 2011, the singer released her single, a song titled "Suave (Kiss Me)", which features Pitbull and Swedish-Congolese singer Mohombi.[2][3] She then joined as opening act Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull on the "Euphoria Tour" across the U.S., Europe and Canada.

During 2011 and 2012 Nayer was working on her debut album with RedOne but the project was never released. In 2012 a "promo" video appeared on the Internet. In this video Nayer talked about recording her album and played snippets of 3 new songs: "Wet", "Love Drum", "Body Talk" (featuring Jason Derulo). In 2013 the full version of "Body Talk" was posted on the Internet.

In 2012 Nayer was featured in the official remix of Fonseca's single "Eres Mi Sueño" and on Jean-Roch's single "Name of Love".

After going independent in 2013, Nayer changed the direction of her album to urban. In September 2013 she announced a collaboration with rapper Detail titled "Thirsty". The song was released for free on SoundCloud.

In 2014 Nayer decided to go back to her roots. In April 2015 she filmed two music videos. In August she announced the release of her new single "Mi Cuerpo" (and its fully English version "My Body"). The music videos for "Mi Cuerpo" and "My Body" were released on her Vevo channel on August 11, 2015. The singles were released on all the music platforms on August 14. The second music video that she filmed in the beginning of that year was for the song "Leila". In 2017 Nayer posted a teaser of the music video on her Instagram but the full video hasn't been released yet.

In the middle of June 2016 Spanish artist Juan Magán announced on his Twitter that he would release his collaboration with Nayer and Dasoul, produced by Daddy Yankee in "a couple of weeks". The song was released in the beginning of July 2016 as a part of his "Quiero Que Sepas" EP.

On April 14, 2017 Nayer released a new single "Yo Soy Lo Que Tu Quieres" featuring Chacal. The music video premiered on June 14.

In December 2017 Nayer appeared on AllStar 305's single "Miami Se Calienta". The music video was released on February 27, 2018.

The music video for Nayer's song "Adiccion" featuring Yomil was released on May 23, 2018.

In July Nayer announced that the music video for her collaboration with the Lebanese singer Melissa called "Leily Leily" would be released on July 20. The song was also released as a single on all the big music platforms on August 20.

On September 10, 2018 Nayer has launched her own makeup brand "Krisbella Beauty". The collection consists of liquid lipsticks and lip liners. It is now available in Krisbella Beauty's online store.
