Alessia Cara Makes Her Spanish Debut With New Single Alongside The One And Only Juanes

There’s nothing we love more than a good summer tune. So as summer is around the corner, two of our favorite artists have partnered up and delivered a sweet and velvety ballad that will caress your deepest desires. The emotions from the two singers on this song will change your very being. Fans already can’t get enough of this song and the love pouring from fans is something all artists want to feel.

Juanes and Alessia Cara debuted a new Spanish song called “Querer Mejor.”

The beautiful love pop ballad includes a really cool music video as well.

This is not the first time these two artists have joined forces. Two years ago, Juanes did the Spanish version of Logic’s song “1-800-273-8255” at the Latin Grammys alongside Logic and Cara.

The song also marks Cara’s Spanish singing debut.

While the Canadian singer isn’t Latina, her Spanish is on point.

Here’s the chorus:

Te siento cerca cuando estamos lejos
Porque te llevo aquí en mi corazón
No sé perderme de tu amor
Quizá mañana cuando estemos viejos
Y se nos arrugue un poco el corazón
Sabré querer mejor.

The song also reminds us of Juanes’ other duet with another Canadian singer Nelly Furtado.

The pair had a hit single with the 2002 track “Fotografía” and the video is also similar to “Querer Mejor.” Juanes is clearly after a specific aesthetic and storyline with each collab. The stories aren’t totally the same but the emotion and the eventual meeting of the two artists are the same in both music videos.

The song has already been streamed more than 10 million times.

Good thing Juanes is able to bring non-Latino artists into the Spanish0-language world. Latin music is having a Renaissance moment and everyone is getting on board. Juanes just seems to have a way of bringing people you wouldn’t expect to the Latin music audience and it is magnificent.

Cara’s Spanish skills have people all over social media talking about the collab.

Music is truly a universal language. It might be in a different language than then one you speak but the emotional expression in the song is something that everyone can pick up on.

We never pictured these two artists together, but it makes so much sense.

“Working with Juanes and being invited into his world has genuinely been such an honor,” Cara said, according to People magazine. “I’ve always loved Latin music, so getting to dabble in that realm with such a legend is pretty amazing.”

Fans are truly over the moon with excitement about this collab.

A perfect match.

Zariah And Ugly Primo Want To Make Sure That You Get Out There And Vote For Our Community

There is a lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Organizations representing so many communities have come forward to fight for civil rights. Artists are also getting involved to make sure that their fans and and communities get out the vote and make the world the way they want to see it.

Zairah and Ugly Primo teamed up to tell their fans to get out and vote.

“Mueve El Pom Pom” is an anthem to all of the people out there who need to be mobilized to go vote. Ugly Primo and Zairah teamed up to create a visual piece of art that highlights the importance of getting out the vote in a very important election.

The animated music video makes the case for the need to get out the vote. Zairah and Ugly Primo highlight the crises facing the American public from affordable healthcare to an immigration system that needs to be reformed to the Trump administration’s continued attacks on public education.

The video is really pushing for people to get their pom poms to the polls.

Images of protest signs we have seen throughout Trump’s administration make an appearance. Black Lives Matter and pro-women signs appear in both English and Spanish to highlight the need for all communities to come together.

The visuals, done by the one and only Ugly Primo, drive home the importance of our community voting as a bloc to create the kind of society we want to live in. It is also encouraging people to go out and vote and to vote any way that they can.

The video is calling on the Latino community to come together and vote to save our democracy.

There is a lot of concern about the fate of democracy in the U.S. The Trump administration has bulldozed over political norms and made comments contrary to our democracy. The latest example of President Trump threatening American democracy is him saying he isn’t sure if he will accept the results of the election. This simple and peaceful transition of power is what democracies are built on. President Trump has not signaled that he will be willing to peacefully accept the election results.

A Rumored Cardi B & Nicki Minaj Collab Has Fans Going Crazy

A Rumored Cardi B & Nicki Minaj Collab Has Fans Going Crazy

The internet is abuzz with rumors of a potential new collaboration between Cardi B and, wait for it….Nicki Minaj.

Hot New Hip Hope broke the news first, claiming that the unconfirmed collaboration between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj would be called “Lavish”.

Cardi B herself was the first one to stoke rumors of a potential collaboration between her and Nicki. Last Thursday, she tweeted out a cryptic message, saying: “Since ya mad ..imma give ya something mad to be about…This next single and coll- ….Gonna have ya sick ….since ya here.”

But the news between a Nicki and Cardi collab went mainstream after Hot New Hip Hop claimed that a snippet of “Lavish” was leaked on the internet and quickly scrubbed from existence.

According to the music outlet, a page for “Lavish” was also created on the music archiving website Genius.

But even that page was quickly taken down. So, either someone is playing an elaborate prank, or there is indeed a cover-up afoot.

As background, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have had a veritable blood feud for years now. Although they were both publicly supportive of each other at the beginning of Cardi’s career, rumors and tensions escalated between them. The beef was largely based off of the underlying media narrative that there could only be one superstar female rapper in the game.

Their feud then famously culminated in a very public altercation at New York Fashion Week in 2018.

It was then that Cardi allegedly threw a shoe at Nicki. Since then, the two have never had anything positive to say about one another.

It’s possible that the two mega-stars have decided to bury the hatchet and move on with their lives. If one thing’s for sure, a Nicki Minaj and Cardi B collab would definitely be a lucrative project. And there’s nothing Cardi loves more than checks!

Shortly after these rumors went public, both of the powerhouse rappers started trending on Twitter.

Both the Bardi Gang and the Barbz are going crazy about what this news could possibly mean.

Fans were divided on whether to be excited about the news…

There are no words to accurately describe how groundbreaking this collab would be.

Or betrayed.

Some stans just don’t want to forgive and forget.

Some were just holding onto hope that the rumors were true.

It would be nice to see these two powerful women come together to celebrate their similarities rather than be divided by drama.

Naturally, a lot of fans were skeptical.

After all, the collaboration still isn’t confirmed and all of these reports are just based off speculation, rumors, and that one cryptic tweet.

We guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to see what happens! Whatever the outcome, we’re always excited to hear new music from Cardi B.
