“Part Brigitte Bardot, part Colombian baddie, the 28-year-old emanates a spiky-soft confidence...Red Moon in Venus is Uchis’ most immersive project yet.”—Pitchfork
“Uchis’ 360-degree view of love and versatile voice make Red Moon in Venus
a wholly satisfying examination of emotionalism in its
many forms—romantic, carnal, self-preserving.”—Rolling Stone
“Red Moon in Venus, the third studio album by the
cheerfully bilingual Colombian American songwriter Kali Uchis, moves between
sensual romance and fierce recriminations.”—The New York Times
"It’s a lush, lavish, luscious hot tub of an album, conjuring visions of plush feather beds, fluffy pillows and bubble baths.”—Variety
“Soft, ethereal and fully femme...Uchis blends R&B
seamlessly with soul and funk.”—Associated Press
“Kali Uchis is the sultry villain R&B needs right now.”—Complex
“Red Moon drips with pleasure, pain and everything in between,

Uchis is a GRAMMY Award, Billboard Latin Music Award, Billboard Music Award, American Music Award, Premios Nuestra Tierra and Univision Premios Juventud winner and Variety Hitmakers honoree.
