Tainy, Bad Bunny, Julieta Venegas – “Lo Siento BB:/”

The Tainy and Bad Bunny connection never fails, and this time around it’s even more special with the addition of Mexican singer Julieta Venegas. “Lo Siento BB:/” confirms that we have entered Sad Boy/Sad Girl fall, as Julieta Venegas opens the Tainy-produced song with a ballad, only to be met with Bad Bunny’s signature chanteo and Reggaeton beats that take the song to anthem level. For anyone needing to perrear y llorar, this song is it. – Luciana Villalba

The Latin Grammy nominee for “La Curiosidad” blends synth-pop and reggaeton in this new single that showcases once again his versatility and ability to release solo songs that have the potential to become anthems. – Luciana Villalba

Nicki Nicole – “Baby”

Like Rauw Alejandro, Myke Towers, and Natti Natasha, Nicki Nicole is to give Latin pop a spin. The Argentine singer-songwriter does so spectacularly with her new single “Baby.” Backed by funky beats with a trap-lite twist, she sings the praises of her lover. Nicole is head-over-heels in love and it shows in this cute pop bop. The song will be part of her upcoming debut album. – Lucas Villa

Cornetto – Neas Don’t Cry album

Guaracha is going global with ‘Neas Don’t Cry’.

Cimafunk – ‘El Alimento’ album

Cimafunk is blending Black Caribbean and Black American music with his breakthrough album El Alimento. The Cuban singer-songwriter has dubbed his unique brand sound as Afro-Cuban funk. His album spans incredible collaborations with artists like funk icon George Clinton, CeeLo Green, and Colombian group ChocQuibTown. Lupe Fiasco jumped on Cimafunk’s sexy banger “Rómpelo.” In a Latin music scene that’s serving the same-old, El Alimento lives up to its name as an electrifying and refreshing slice of something new. – Lucas Villa

Fonseca, Greeicy, Cali y El Dandee – “2005”

It’s been 15 years since Fonseca’s hit “Te Mando Flores” was released, and the Colombian singer sampled his own song for “2005” with fellow Colombian singers Greeicy and Cali y El Dandee. This new remake of sorts hits us right in the feels, as the nostalgic and familiar beat transports us back to the year 2005, fusing the original lyrics with a fresh new take of the Latin Pop classic. – Luciana Villalba

Mexican singer-songwriter Humbe continues his hot streak with his new single “Popular.” He’s known for using Mexican slang in his Latin pop tracks. Humbe embraces trap-lite beats in “Popular” as he sings about a place where everyone can shine for being who they are. This entrancing and empowering bop previews Humbe’s next album. He’s nominated for Best New Artist at next month’s Latin Grammy Awards. – Lucas Villa

Tiarra Girls ft. Lady Shacklin – “Let Love Free”

Texas sister trio Tiarra Girls released “Let Love Free” with Jamaican rapper Lady Shacklin just in time for National Coming Out Day.
