Watch Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee And Nicky Jam Be The Ultimate Corny Creeps In ‘Bella y Sensual’

Credit: RomeoSantosVEVO/ YouTube

Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam just dropped a music video for their new song “Bella y Sensual” that pulls a page out of the “How to be a New York papi-chulo” handbook.

The trio shows us a typical night out for guys in The Big Apple, and it’s got all the trappings of the reggatonero life, giving us a how-to guide on being the corniest, rico suave dude on the planet.

First, stand around a rooftop pool with your boys, a chilly fall breeze filling the air, as women, for some reason, walk by in bikinis, looking cold as hell. Like, how come none of these dude offer her a jacket?

Next, make sure to dress up in the most ridiculous outfit you can find. If you’re like Romeo, this includes a leopard print shirt, gaudy gold sneakers and, of course, a fedora.

Leave the frozen pool area to go uptown to hang out in front of a subway station at 9:30 p.m for what appears to be an unlicensed street party. As you pull in your cars “The Fast and The Furious” style, high beams illuminating the street party, make sure to catcall any woman walking by. Remember to change your outfit from a fedora to a varsity jacket with a cape, because you’re obviously out here trying to save the ladies from enjoying a night out with their friends in peace.

After trying to convince a girl to give you the time of day, decide to leave her alone only when the police show up to break up your illegal street rager.

Finally, at 1 a.m., get to the club. Don’t forget to flirt with the bottle girls. They love that, and really want to hear all the illuminating things you have to scream in their ears over the music.

Then at 5 a.m., make your way to the neighborhood diner for some grub. Make sure to eat something hearty to sober up after all that free bottle service your flirting got you. Even after hours and hours of dancing and sweating, everyone at the diner is still looking impeccable, so remember to stay sharp, playa. Flirt with everyone trying to enjoy their late dinner/early breakfast. Who doesn’t want to be chatted up over eggs and the early signs of a hangover?

Just before calling it a night, make sure to holler at the same girl your friends tried to get at. Taking no for an answer, even though it’s the right thing to do, isn’t for you. You’re a macho stereotype. Get out of here with that logical stuff. Also, women love your arrogant pick up lines. Don’t worry about her friends who want to leave, they won’t think you’re being inconsiderate at all.

And after all of that, be sure to creepily offer her a ride. Attempt to convince her by calling her “baby” and “mamacita.”

Be sure to watch her drive away, and shout things at her when she’s still within earshot. Getting away from you as quickly as humanly possible is a clear sign that she’s into at least one of you.

Then, high five your homies for a successful night out on the town. And finally, make sure to be extra quiet as you creep back into your parents’ crib. Being a grown, catcalling, creep of a man is hard when you’re living with the ‘rents, but don’t worry, you got this. ?

Exclusive: Nicky Jam Talks ‘Tom & Jerry’ and Teaming Up With Romeo Santos

Nicky Jam is stepping in 2021 with something for everyone. The Boricua OG will be reaching out to his younger fans as Butch the Cat in Tom & Jerry. The movie was released to HBO Max and theaters on Feb. 26. For his longtime fans, there’s his new single “Fan de Tus Fotos” with Romeo Santos.

Nicky Jam is growing his Hollywood résumé.

“I’m a big fan of Tom & Jerry,” Jam tells Latido Music. “You know you made it when you do something that’s got to do with the kids. Children are everything. That’s the future of our world. That’s going to be iconic and all the kids are going to watch that forever.”

Tom & Jerry is Jam’s latest foray into Hollywood. The movie also stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Ken Jeong, and fellow reggaetonero Ozuna. Last year, Jam appeared in the blockbuster Bad Boys for Life and in 2019, he was able to tell his life story in the Netflix series Nicky Jam: El Ganador.

Don’t worry. Music is still in the mix.

This year Jam expanded his brand with The Rockstar Show, his YouTube talk show where he chats with other Latin music superstars. Recent guests include Maluma, Karol G, and Luis Fonsi. Music is still a part of the picture. His recent tease of his next album is the sexy “Fan de Tus Fotos” with the King of Bachata. In an exclusive interview with Latido Music, Jam talked to us about taking on Hollywood and reteaming with Santos.

What can you tell us about your character in Tom & Jerry?

I’m an alley cat. I’m playing Butch. You know I can relate because I’m an alley cat myself. I’m from the streets. You know what I’m saying? I got that New York accent, so I think it’s a good combination. My favorite color is black, so for some reason, it’s a good combination.

What was the experience like to team up with Romeo Santos again for “Fan de Tus Fotos”?

It was really good because I was really, really looking forward to doing something with Romeo Santos alone because [last time we] did a song with Daddy Yankee [“Bella y Sensual“]. I said, “You know, we need to something alone because it’s part of my bucket list.” I sent him a song first and he was like, [Nicky imitating Romeo’s voice] “Yo, Nicky, I don’t know. I don’t like this song. I think it’s not my style.” And then I sent him another one and he was like, “The song’s a hit, but I don’t see me there.” And then I sent him the third one and he loved the song. We did the video. You know. The rest is history.

What was the experience like to regroup with Daddy Yankee as Los Cangris last year for “Muévelo”?

It’s always good to work with Daddy Yankee. The respect that we have for each other. I reminisce so much when I’m with him. He gives me so many memories of what we did in the past. And to see that we’re still doing it today after 25 years is just amazing.

Are you going to release another album soon?

Yeah! The new album is called Infinity and it’s going to be out at the end of March.

We know you for your music but you expanded your brand more into Hollywood with El Ganador, Bad Boys for Life, and Tom & Jerry. Can you tell us more about taking that direction?

It’s something that I want. My dream is to have a star on Hollywood on the floor on the Walk of Fame, so that’s going to take me there. I’ve already done so much with the music. There are no challenges in the music anymore for me. Acting is where the challenges are at and I’m just focusing on that.

As one of the OG reggaetoneros, what do you think of the reggaeton music scene now?

I’m like a proud father to see where it’s at. To see that I’m one of the architects of this and I knocked on doors for it to be where it’s at today. Every time I see Bad Bunny on Saturday Night Live or I see somebody doing the Super Bowl or anything like that, I’m like, “It was worth it.” We busted our a*ses and today we got the respect that we wanted.

What more can we expect from Nicky Jam in 2021?

I’m still working hard on my show The Rockstar Show. Growing so much on that show. Apart from that, I got a movie called American Sole. Kevin Hart is the executive producer of that movie. It’s about the sneaker game and it’s going to be huge as well.

Reggaetón Won Big At This Year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards And These Two Artists Took Center Stage

Reggaetón Won Big At This Year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards And These Two Artists Took Center Stage

The 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards have finally come and gone after being postponed because of the Coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. So many of us were anticipating the night asa chance to escape from all the worldwide drama – even if only for one night. And the awards show definitely delivered.

Going into the night, Bad Bunny and Ozuna were expected to win big with 14 nominations each including Artist of the Year. But it was Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee who went home with seven awards each. And when the awards weren’t being handed out, Pitbull, Paulina Rubio and Ozuna, along with many others artists, delivered stunning performances.

Much of the show’s success is owed to Venezuelan actress Gaby Espino who served as the show’s host with help from Nicaraguan co-host Nastassja Bolivar.

Reggaetón artists stole the show at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards and we couldn’t be more proud.

Although reggaetón artists were expected to win big this year, many were still surprised at just how well some of the biggest artists ended up doing. Both Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee triumphed with seven trophies each at last night’s Billboard Latin Music Awards.

Of course, the night was about celebrating all the incredible music these artists have brought us this year – perhaps a git more important than ever as we all struggle amid a pandemic and other global issues. But so many artists shined a light on front-line workers, victims of Covid-19 and violence against women – it was a very powerful evening.

One of the first groups to speak out was Wisin y Yandel. The duo sent a powerful message through their acceptance speech, with Yandel ending it with a resounding “no more abuse against women.” Wisin urged Latinos to get out and vote on Nov. 3 with his second message. “Go out and vote because we’re voting for our future. And vote for that person that will actually care about our community.”

And to top it all off, Maluma accepted the Billboard Spirit of Hope Award, in honor of his foundation, El Arte de los Sueños, which protects youth in pursuit of their dreams.

Bad Bunny is our reigning Artist of the Year.

After last night’s award ceremony, we have a new reigning Top Artist of the Year in Bad Bunny. Although the reggaetónero didn’t attend the award ceremony, he was definitely a highlight of the night.

San Benito took home seven awards (from his 14 nominations) including the top honor, as well as top Latin Album for “X 100PRE” and Songwriter of the Year.

Daddy Yankee, Karol G and several other top artists won big as well.

Daddy Yankee won six of his awards for his hit “Con Calma,” which featured the 1990s artist Snow. His honors included the hot Latin song “Aware.” During his acceptance speech, he acknowledged these have been tough times and dedicated his award to those who have lost their loved ones due to COVID-19.

“These have been challenging times and I want to share this award with those who have been perseverant and those who have lost a loved one. Music continues to be the best medicine,” he said.

Karol G also won big with prizes for Top Latin Albums Artist of the Year, Female, and Hot Latin Songs Artist of the Year, Female.

Ozuna gave us two incredible live performances.

About an hour into the show, Ozuna and the Black Eyed Peas heated up the stage with their smash hit “Mamacita.” Practicing social distancing, Ozuna sang from one stage while Taboo, apl.de.ap and J. Rey Soul danced away to the catchy tune and will.i.am was in another stage delivering the catchy hook “Mamacita, Mamacita, que bonita.”

In his second performance of the night, Ozuna returned to the stage for an intimate performance of “Gracias.” Surrounded by candles and dressed in angelic white, a thankful Ozuna slowed things down for this stripped-down acoustic track. Making the performance even more special and personal, the superstar’s kids joined him onstage. By far one of the most beautiful performances of the night. “Let’s take care of our families,” Ozuna said. “Let’s take care of women. There are too many femicides around the world and they are the ones who gave us life.”

Another standout moment was the special tribute in honor of Mexican singer-songwriter Armando Manzanero.

Artists Pablo Alborán, Luis Fonsi, Jesús Navarro (Reik) and Joy (Jesse & Joy) sang a medley of Manzanero classics including “Contigo Aprendí” and “No Sé Tu.”

“I have no words to express what my heart is feeling right now after singing with this new generation of artists that is so grand, strong and talented in a special stage like this one,” Manzanero said following his performance.

Meanwhile, the ear worm “Despacito” was named Song of the Decade.

It seems we can’t escape this 2017 hit featuring Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. We won’t mention the other version that also had an appearance by Justin Bieber – although I guess I just did.

But it was inducted into Billboard Latin Music history as it took home the evenings Song of the Decade award – marking another win for Daddy Yankee.

Did you watch the awards show? What did you think?
