Becky G is coming through with the best bangers of the year so far. On Feb. 25, she collaborated with Nigerian artist Burna Boy for the commanding “Rotate.”
Today’s top soccer stars appear in a Pepsi commercial with “Rotate.”
Becky G and Burna Boy first premiered “Rotate” in a Pepsi Max commercial filled with soccer stars. In the “Fizz to Life” clip, Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba jump out of their photos on the walls. Shanice van de Sanden and Jadon Sancho also appear in the visual.
“‘Rotate’ to me is a celebration,” Becky G said in a statement. “I think it’s evident that fútbol holds a special place in my heart and having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport.”
Becky G really said, “Figure 8!”
Not only is “Rotate” a nice jingle, but the whole song was released this week, and it’s so much bigger than its Pepsi placement. The reggaeton music that Becky G has immersed herself in meets the Afro-beats courtesy of Jamaican hitmaker Di Genius. The Mexican-American pop star takes over the dance floor in Spanish and English. Burna Boy scores a goal with his triumphant verse that elevates this global anthem. Becky G is ready to turn the party with Burna Boy.
“Rotate” is Becky G’s first taste of new music in 2021. Her last album, Mala Santa, was released in 2019 and it featured the hits like “Sin Pijama” with Natti Natasha and “Mayores” with Bad Bunny.
To get ready for the weekend, Latido Music has rounded up five of the best songs of the week to add to your playlists. Check out our favorites of the week below.
Jencarlos & Pitbull “Cosita Linda”
Jencarlos Canela is back with his hottest music video yet for “Cosita Linda.” The Cuban-American singer reunites with Mr. Worldwide Pitbull for the romantic reggaeton romp. Jencarlos sings sweet somethings in Spanish while getting hot-and-heavy with a beautiful model on the beach. Like a romance novel cover come to life, the hunky artist and his on-screen love interest serve plenty of body. There’s something for everyone here and that’s the true cosita linda.
This is the freakiest playlist with “Fantasia Sexual.” Puerto Rican hitmaker Revel rounded up the heartthrobs on the rise in reggaeton for this alluring bedroom banger. Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Lunay, and Brytiago don’t hold back as they deliver their verses that are equally flirty and dirty. The music video is just as steamy with the guys admiring beautiful women in supernatural scenes. Their power of their “Fantasia Sexual” is irresistible and unmatched.
Maria Becerra & Cazzu “Animal”
Argentina’s rising pop star Maria Becerra teamed up with Cazzu, the country’s Latin trap music queen, for their collaboration “Animal.” Latin trap with a reggaeton bounce collide on this fierce girl power moment in music. Becerra and Cazzu cut loose on the song about an independent woman that’s on the prowl and living her best life. The music video is set in a futuristic jungle where the both ladies are free to roam and perrear as they please.
Dimelo Flow, Sech, Tyga & J.I. “Girl Like You”
The hitmaking producer behind Panamanian superstar Sech, Dimelo Flow, is stepping to the forefront with this debut single “Girl Like You.” Sech returns the favor by featuring on the R&B-meets-reggaeton banger with rap star Tyga and rising Nuyorican artist J.I. the Prince of N.Y. In Spanish and English, the guys try to win over the women of their dreams with lines that are just as dreamy. Dimelo and the gang get caught up in a Jumanji-like game filled with Jurassic Park dinosaurs in the wild music video.
Cuban-American superstar Lauren Jauregui teamed up with Brazil’s drag pop superstar Pabllo Vittar for a new remix of “Lento.” With Jauregui, who is openly bisexual, and Vittar together, the LGBTQ+ representation and excellence jumps out. Jauregui remains a captivating force on the track while Vittar comes through with a hypnotic performance of her own. Tainy’s original reggaeton production is given a touch of Brazil thanks to Brabo’s remix. This is the best version of Jauregui’s “Lento” yet.
