This week’s Instinct Hottie may be a familiar face. AB Soto is the little papi you want to put in your pocket. A queer music artist, AB’s function complicates the limitations of fashion, functionality and identification. Having developed being a Latin guy in East LA, Soto’s music is normally heavily up to date by both his ties to Mexican lifestyle and his history in dance and style design.
You may recognize AB’s music and certain bops like Cha Cha Bitch.
If you follow AB Soto, you know he likes to give followers a sexy and spicy look at his music, fashions, and that hairy bod. His line, Reina Streetwear, also brings his aesthetic and personality to streetwear so you should definitely check that out.
And if you want to see a little more of AB, his OnlyFans promises to give a closer look at his entire skeleton.
It’s AB’s creativity and Hotboy realness that makes him this week’s Instinct Hottie.
Let’s get to know AB a little closer:
INSTINCT: How did you get into music?
AB SOTO: Originally I worked as a designer after graduating Fashion Design school. I always had a desire to dance so I began taking dance classes in the evenings every day after work. Eventually I quit my job as a designer to dance full time. I then worked as a backup dancer for many years. Ultimately I didn’t see myself represented in the media or the artists I was dancing for, so I knew I had to create my own art. I started choreographing and making music as a way to rebel against a homophobic entertainment industry.
INSTINCT: Who are some of your musical inspirations?
AS: Well, I grew up listening to House music, Gangsta Rap, R & B, and Banda music. All of these genres have some sort of influence on my work. My music inspiration is more about creating a soundtrack for a story or a dance performance. I also get inspiration from 90’s art, which was in my opinion still a pure and less manufactured time in fashion and music.
INSTINCT: Where do you get your style from?
AS: I grew up in East LA so dressing to “pass” was essential for survival. That way of dressing always stayed with me, as I’ve always been into streetwear and street style fashion. Streetwear is deep in culture. I’ve always loved street style from New York and London. Also, I specialized in Mens streetwear in design school and worked for a menswear company straight out of design school.
INSTINCT: What has been one of your most memorable collaborations?
AS: To be honest, I don’t really like collaborations when it comes to music. I avoid them since I have such a specific point of view. But obviously my collab with RuPaul was very magical. 🙂
INSTINCT: What has it been like creating adult content?
AS: Great! I’ve always been an openly gay artist and breaking the stereotypes around queer sex is very important for me. Sex is a fun theme found in a lot of my work.
