Selena Gomez and Myke Towers’ “Dámelo To'” is Everything: Listen to the ‘Revelación’ Standout

Selena Gomez’s Revelación EP is finally here! That also means her collaboration with Puerto Rican superstar Myke Towers is out. Their Spanish song “Dámelo To'” was so worth the wait.

Gomez said this EP was a Latin “labor of love.”

“This new music is a labor of love for all my Latin fans,” Gomez said in a statement. “Whether you speak Spanish or not, I hope you can feel the emotion and passion. For me, that is the beauty of Latin music.”

Towers is one of three featured artists on Gomez’s Revelación EP. The Mexican-American pop star previously dropped music videos for “Baila Conmigo” featuring Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro and “Selfish Love” with French producer DJ Snake. Her fans had to wait for the whole EP to get the Towers collaboration.

Gomez and Towers are a dream team.

Gomez wrote “Dámelo To'” with Towers, Puerto Rican hit-maker Tainy, and his production team NEON16. Reggaeton beats wrapped around a hypnotic flute soundtrack Gomez’s demands for more. Apparently, Towers is not giving her what she wants, so he steps up to the plate with a slick guest verse. “I’ll give mom grandkids,” he promises in Spanish. This Gomez-Towers dream team gives us everything we needed.

“To be reunited with Selena on this project was amazing,” Tainy added. “We wanted to merge work I’ve been doing with the pop arena Selena has always mastered. To create something that was authentic to who she is. I’m a huge fan of her work and to have this responsibility has been an incredible honor.”

The Revelación EP features 7 all-Spanish songs done by Gomez. This isn’t her first time singing in Spanish, but it’s her first major Latin music project.

Bach Goes Reggaeton in Sebastián Yatra and Myke Tower’s “Pareja del Año” Duet

ERICK FERNANDO

Colombian pop star Sebastián Yatra teams up with Puerto Rican rapper Myke Towers for “Pareja del Año.” The two artists interestingly blend classical music with reggaeton.

Sebastián is flying high off his latest hit “Chica Ideal.”

“Pareja del Año” is Yatra’s second new single this year following the ballad “Adiós.” He’s still riding high off the success of last year’s “Chica Ideal” with Boricua rapper Guaynaa. The two artists performed the global smash on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last month.

Sebastián and Myke’s worlds collide in “Pareja del Año.”

“‘Pareja del Año’ represents where I am right now musically, blending pop and urban genres,” Yatra said in a statement. “Everything Myke Towers does is out of this world so I’m excited to collaborate with him on my new single.”

As a leader in the Latin pop scene, Yatra strives to keep the genre interesting. He does just that with “Pareja del Año.” Yatra wrote the song with Towers and the hit-making duo Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres, the guys behind “Despacito.” The song opens with a beautiful string arrangement that’s reminiscent of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Cello Suite No. 1: Prelude.”

Soon after the reggaeton beats hit as Yatra and Towers try to win back the loves of their lives in heartfelt performances. As per usual, Towers is a knockout, seamlessly working his versatile flow around the magical soundscape. This breathtaking duet is definitely a contender for song of the year.

The music video was shot with a full-string orchestra.

“On our new collaboration, we bring together the duo of the century,” Towers said. “This song brings together the best of both worlds. It’s a classic. It’s what music is all about.”

The “Pareja del Año” music video was filmed by famed director Daniel Duran. Yatra and Towers perform the song with a full-string orchestra at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.

Yatra’s follow-up to 2019’s Fantasía album is a hotly anticipated release. Towers is set to drop his next album Lyke Myke later this year.

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.
