Panamanian Star Sech’s ’42’ Album is Here: Our 5 Favorite Songs

MOISÉS MORALES

Sech is back with his new album 42. The Panamanian superstar keeps it short and sweet with 11 new songs. He also teams up with Boricua OGs like Wisin y Yandel and Nicky Jam.

Sech has scored plenty of hits thanks to his unique R&B and reggaeton blend.

Since breaking out in 2019, Sech has scored a global hit every year. He broke into the Billboard Hot 100 top 40 with his smash “Otro Trago” featuring Darell. Last year, Sech scored another hit with “Relación,” which also impressively charted on the Hot 100 at No. 64. Later he dropped a remix with Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, Farruko, and Spanish pop star Rosalía.

Sech’s 42 album is named after the number that baseball icon Jackie Robison used on his jersey.

42 is Sech’s third album. This follows last year’s 1 of 1, which featured “Relación.” He claims that this one is his most personal release yet.

“This album represents the stories that most marked my life,” Sech said in a statement. “I am happy to share it because I feel like I can show a little more of where I come from, who I am  – as an artist and as a person – and all the struggle I’ve overcome to get where I am now in my life.”

Latido Music is here to highlight five of our favorite songs on Sech’s new LP.

“Sal y Perrea”

“Sal y Perrea” is the new single from Sech’s 42 album. His advice for living your best life sounds like a delicious drink recipe. This Panamanian perreo certainly packs a punch. Sech is the life of the party in the beachside music video.  

“Playa”

Sech aligns with the present and future of Puerto Rican superstars in “Playa.” He teams up with OG Nicky Jam and rising artist Rauw Alejandro. The trio of ladies’ men turns up the heat with this sensual reggaeton romp. Sech isn’t playing any games on “Playa.”

“Pata’ Abajo”

Sech has a bit of a throwback moment with “Pata’ Abajo.” The song opens with a snippet of Boricua OGs Wisin y Yandel’s classic “Dembow.” The dúo dinámico then joins Sech for his refreshing perreo banger that takes their aggressive sound into the future. The self-proclaimed “El Peluche” has got some edge here.

“911”

Sech first previewed his 42 album in February with the single “911.” He answered the emergency call for perreo that we had this year. In this scorching kiss-off anthem, Sech goes off on an ex who wants to come back into his life. His piercing lyrics might require some medical attention.

“Feliz de Mentira”

Sech blends his signature R&B and reggaeton sound with a mariachi band in “Feliz de Mentira.” Sech with a regional Mexican music edge is everything. His soulful voice seamlessly finds its footing with the Mexican band, showing just how versatile of an artist that Sech is.

2021 Latin American Music Awards Highlights: Ozuna, Eslabón Armado, Karol G and More

ESLABONARMADOOFICIAL / INSTAGRAM

The 2021 Latin American Music Awards were last night and Bad Bunny emerged victorious. Even though the Puerto Rican superstar was absent, he won five awards.

Karol G and Nicki Minaj were big winners.

Right behind Benito, who took home Artist of the Year, was Karol G, with three wins. She won for her smash hit “Tusa,” which also made her collaborator Nicki Minaj a three-time winner. “Tusa” won the Song of the Year award over Bad Bunny’s “Yo Perreo Sola” and Colombian singer Maluma’s “Hawái.”

Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro also won big.

In the New Artist of the Year category, rising Puerto Rican pop star Rauw Alejandro took home the award. Like Bad Bunny, he was also absent from the ceremony. “Thanks to all those who voted for me,” Alejandro wrote in his Instagram stories. “I’ll see you all soon. Wait for me.”

The night was also filled with plenty of performances. Latido Music is here with five of our favorite Latin AMAs performances.

Eslabón Armado

Eslabón Armado is the Mexican-American trio that is reviving the sierreño sound in regional Mexican music. They’re doing it with their own emo spin on the genre. The guys won two awards: Favorite Regional Mexican Duo or Group and the Favorite Duo or Group general category. In one of their first major award show performances, the crowd was treated to Eslabón Armado’s “Con Tus Besos” live.

Ozuna

Last night Ozuna was honored with the Extraordinary Evolution Award for his incredible music career. The moment was extra special for the Puerto Rican superstar because his grandmother gave him the award. Ozuna was in tears of joy over the gesture. He also performed a medley of hits like “Vaina Loca” and “Dile Que Tu Me Quieres.”

Karol G

Fresh off her new album KG0516 topping Billboard‘s Latin Album chart, Karol G performed at the Latin AMAs. She gave her first live performance of “El Makinon” with rising Latina singer Mariah Angeliq. The sensual performance was a show of girl power at the awards.

Maluma

Maluma performed a few times at the Latin AMAs. He teamed up with Wisin, Myke Towers, and Anitta for their remix of “Mi Niña.” He also joined fellow Colombian act Piso 21 for their hit duet “Más de la Una.” His best performance of the night was “Tonika” from his 7 Días En Jamaica (#7DJ) album. He sang it with Jamaican music royalty Ziggy Marley for the first time.

David Bisbal and Carrie Underwood

In one of the most-anticipated moments of the night, Spanish singer David Bisbal teamed up with country music superstar Carrie Underwood. The duo debuted their duet “Tears of Gold” live and Underwood sang in Spanish.
