Jhay Cortez is Living His Pop Star Fantasy in “Christian Dior” Music Video

Fresh off his Grammy Awards performance, Jhay Cortez premiered the music video for his new single “Christian Dior.” The rising Puerto Rican artist dials it back to the 2000s in his stylish visual.

Jhay Cortez made his Grammy Awards debut this year.

Cortez performed the global smash “Dákiti” with Bad Bunny for the first time at the Grammy Awards last Sunday. The guys put on a neon-colored spectacle. Shortly after the show, Cortez unleashed his new music video for “Christian Dior.”

Cortez stays changing the reggaeton game.

Cortez wrote “Christian Dior” with one of the night’s big winners, Andrew Watt, who took home the Grammy for Producer of the Year. Puerto Rican hit-maker Tainy helmed the sleek reggaeton track. Cortez sings about a baddie in designer clothes that’s got him wrapped around her finger. “That a*s is criminal like Natti,” he says, referencing the hit by Natasha that he co-wrote. The perreo breakdown courtesy of “Tú Quieres Duro” by Hector “El Father” is everything. Cortez remains a reggaeton revelation and game-changer.

Jhay comes through with some choreo in the video.

The music video for “Christian Dior” was directed by Fernando Lugo. As someone who was known as a songwriter for other artists’ hits, Cortez is feeling the spotlight more with each of his releases. He’s living his pop star fantasy inside a box that’s reminiscent of music videos from the 2000s. Cortez even does a little choreography with the women in there. Go off, Jhay!

“Christian Dior” will be included on Cortez’s upcoming album Timelezz. He’s so far previewed the LP with “Lo Bo” featuring fellow Puerto Rican powerhouse Myke Towers and “Kobe En LA.”

Bronx Native Séssi Talks Music Influences, Body Positivity, Working with Jhay Cortez and More

Urban-pop singer-songwriter Séssi joined us for an exclusive interview for Latido Music by mitú where we got to know more about the Puerto Rican and Cuban songstress, her musical influences, what it means to be a Latina in the music industry, and the message she wants to share with women through her music.

Séssi comes from a musical background.

A post shared by SÉSSI🎙 (@sessiofficial)

Born and raised in The Bronx to Puerto Rican and Cuban parents, Séssi grew up in a musical household where her father was a producer and her mom worked in event planning setting up concerts.

“Since I was a child, I’ve always been on stage, singing… always had a passion for music. I come from dance music, but a lot of Latin influences like La India, Lady Gaga. I also love the Disco Divas like Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer. So I would say my music is very eclectic, I have a lot of R&B sounds, pop sounds, I’m big on melodies.”

One of the main themes Sésssi wants to transmit through her music is body positivity and self-expression

Growing up with a family that embraced her uniqueness, Séssi doesn’t shy away from expressing herself through music. “I was raised that way, that you have to love yourself, be proud of who you are, and I’m very blessed to have a team that believes in me and to be able to express myself and talk about toxic relationships, and all the crazy things that women go through, it’s not easy being us. I’m here to lift up all the women,” Séssi says. “And some men as well because… if I gotta check a man, I will,” she laughed.

Her new single, “2C”, she describes it as a hallucination, a man mesmerized by a woman’s confidence and her beauty

Séssi’s latest single “2C” is a sultry reggaeton track where a man and a woman fall in love for the first time and the woman knows exactly what she’s worth and takes command of the situation.

Séssi worked with Jhay Cortez on the track “Kobe en LA.”

For the outro of Jhay Cortez’s “Kobe en LA,” you can hear Séssi’s vocals during the final verses of the song, which Séssi calls them “extremely spiritual.”

About the experience working with Jhay, Séssi calls it a “dream come true,” and it was a gratifying experience for her to work with someone that loves to express themselves through lyrics, just like she does, and hopes to work with Jhay again in the future.

Séssi was recently named one of the 20 Latinas to discover before 2020 ends by Billboard.

From our conversation alone, you can tell that Séssi’s personality thrives by performing on stage and we can’t wait to see her perform live very soon. We’ll be tuned in for the music she has in store for us.

Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour Del Mundo isn’t until next year, but he already has the best-selling post-pandemic tour. The Puerto Rican superstar is breaking records with his sell-out tour in the U.S.

Bad Bunny announced the surprise tour during Wrestlemania.

During his WWE Wrestlemania debut earlier this month, Bad Bunny announced the tour dates for his El Último Tour Del Mundo 2022. The tour will kick off in Denver in February 2022 and later wrap up in Miami that April. Benito was trending on Twitter the night of the announcement, showing just how in-demand the tickets were.

The tour tickets that went on sale last week sold like hotcakes.

The pre-sale tickets for the tour named after his 2020 hit album went on sale last Thursday. From peeping the websites like Ticketmaster and AXS, it was apparent how fast the tickets were selling. To keep up the with demand, Bad Bunny added second and third dates to many of the major cities like L.A., Chicago, New York, Orlando, and Miami.

Bad Bunny broke many records with his hotly-anticipated tour.

All the tickets, including the shows that were added, were gone as soon as they were available. This week Ticketmaster certified the records that Bad Bunny broke with his wildly-selling tour. Thursday’s pre-sale tickets claim the record for the top ticket sales in a day of any tour since 2018.

“One thing is clear: the world wants to see Bad Bunny live on stage,” said Mark Yovich, President of Ticketmaster, in a statement. “The demand for his tour has smashed multiple records, with one of the most active onsale periods in Ticketmaster’s history. Ticketmaster is honored to get fans one step closer to live with tickets to see this global breakthrough artist.”

Bad Bunny also holds the record for the highest-selling post-pandemic tour. He’s expected to perform the hits from his albums that dropped last year: YHLQMDLG, Las Que No Iban a Salir, and El Último Tour Del Mundo. Last week, Benito won five Latin American Music Awards, including Artist of the Year.
