Sebastián Yatra – “Tacones Rojos”

Sebastián Yatra is back with his new single “Tacones Rojos.” The Colombian singer-songwriter’s song is like a Spanish version of Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman.” Yatra is in his rock ‘n’ roll bag with this sexy and charming ode to women who confidently rock red heels. He brings the dreaminess of “Tacones Rojos” to life in the rom-com-like music video. – Lucas Villa

Paloma Mami – “Cosas De La Vida”

In her feels. Fresh off her Best New Artist nomination at this year’s Latin Grammys, Chilean singer Paloma Mami released “Cosas De La Vida” from her upcoming album. The track tackles the feeling of impotence knowing that you can’t be with the love of your life, and the uncertainty that comes with not knowing if you’ll ever see them again. The pop track will have you pulling your heartstrings and thinking about those “what if” moments. – Luciana Villalba

Kris Floyd – La Última Vez Que Me Viste EP

Kris Floyd, who is most known for co-writing the hits on Selena Gomez’s Spanish EP Revelación, released his debut EP La Última Vez Que Me Viste. The Puerto Rican singer-songwriter has got swagger as a rapper and singer. Floyd’s voice soars in the lovely “Ser Libre” and he taps of the flirtiness of it in “Siempre Tarde.” As a rapper, he hits hard with his bars in the cocky “Xkittlez” with Boricua icon Arcángel. He’s another protégé of Tainy’s on his Neon16 label. – Lucas Villa

Eladio Carrión – “Sauce Boy Freestyle 5”

Nobody is touching Eladio when it comes to freestyles. Puerto Rican rapper Eladio Carrión remains untouchable in the freestyle space with the fifth installment of Sauce Boy Freestyle. Eladio gets deep about friends becoming enemies, how people get happy to see you not do well, but he’s aware that in life everything comes and goes and at the end of the day, it’s all a matter of perspective. – Luciana Villalba

Joel DELEŌN – “La Culpa”

Ex-CNCO member Joel DELEŌN made his solo debut with his new single “La Culpa.” He leans into his Mexican roots with this sexy bop that uniquely blends mariachi and pop music. DELEŌN also sings his heart out like he never did before in CNCO. It’s a promising start for the future Latin music star. – Lucas Villa

Erii – “Ven”

Colombian newcomer Erii released her new single “Ven” which comes sprinkled with a bit of Spanglish. The song fuses electro pop, dembow and zouk and gets elevated with Erii’s vocals. She’s definitely one to look out for. – Luciana Villalba
