Can You Guess How Much It Would Cost To Make Out With Ricky Martin?

On April 16, amfAR held its sixth annual amfAR Inspiration Gala in São Paulo, Brazil, aimed at raising money for HIV and AIDS research. The event brought in models, actors and other big names, but the most incredible moment from the night was Ricky Martin locking lips with one very generous donor.

Ana Paola Diniz is arguably the luckiest person in all of Brazil after winning an auction to kiss Ricky Martin’s sweet, sultry lips. And it only cost her $90,000.

Diniz is a dog breeder who owns the world-renowned dog kennel Malabo APD. She was NOT SHY about getting down to business after her $90k bid was the confirmed winner.

Seems even the stars are nervous before that first kiss.

But dude really gave this lucky fan/donor her money’s worth.

Perfect execution by a perfect man.

And we all got the big-eyed sign of relief that we’ve come to expect from Ricky.

He’s okay, everybody!

One question, Ricky. What can someone get for $9 and an old cough drop? #AskingForMiAbuelita. Like, holding hands would totally suffice.

If we would have known that’s all it took for a Ricky Martin kiss, we would have been like this YEARS ago.

Seriously. How many of us would have diligently saved up all of our allowance if we knew it could get us a kiss with Ricky Martin? ????????

Will Bad Bunny Win His First Grammy Award This Weekend?

Will Bad Bunny Win His First Grammy Award This Weekend?

There’s a good chance that Bad Bunny could win his first Anglo Grammy this weekend. The Puerto Rican superstar is nominated twice this year and his top-selling YHLQMDLG album might win it for him.

Bad Bunny was first nominated for a Grammy in 2019.

Bad Bunny is no stranger to the Grammy Awards. He received his first nomination in 2019 in the main Record of the Year category. This was thanks to his feature on Cardi B’s global smash “I Like It” with Colombian reggaetonero J Balvin. Last year, Benito was nominated twice in the strangely-titled Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album. He was up for his debut album x 100pre and his joint LP Oasis with J Balvin. Spanish singer Rosalía won for her El Mal Querer album.

YHLQMDLG might be what wins it for him this year.

This year that crowded aforementioned category was split into two categories. Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG, the top-selling Latin LP of 2020, is nominated for the Best Latin Pop or Urban Album category. The album famously peaked at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. Benito then became the first artist to top the chart with an all-Spanish album when El Último Tour Del Mundo dropped last November.

In the Best Latin Pop or Urban Album category, Bad Bunny faces competition from longtime Grammy favorites and fellow Puerto Ricans Ricky Martin and Kany García. He’s also up against 2020’s breakthrough Colombian pop star Camilo and rising Costa Rican singer Debi Nova. The heavy media campaigns behind Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG and El Último Tour Del Mundo might be what won over his colleagues at the Recording Academy.

He has a chance to win a Grammy with Dua Lipa, too.

The Grammys expanded on what pop music means in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. Interestingly Tainy’s bilingual bop “Un Día (One Day)” featuring Bad Bunny, J Balvin, and Dua Lipa was included in this category. Kudos to Recording Academy for not generalizing this as a Latin release. Korean boyband BTS’ “Dynamite” was also nominated in a historic first for a K-Pop music recording.

In the aforementioned category, Tainy’s song is one of Lipa’s six Grammy nominations this year. She’s a favorite and might be what pulls the win for the “Un Día” squad. They still face stiff competition from BTS, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and the Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande “Rain on Me” collaboration.

We’ll find out on Sunday night if Bad Bunny is able to add a Grammy to his trophy shelf that already includes a few Latin Grammys. The Grammy Awards will air on CBS. Bad Bunny is scheduled to perform with his “Dákiti” collaborator Jhay Cortez.

Our 5 Favorite Covers on CNCO’s ‘Déjá Vu’ Album: Ricky Martin, Aventura, and more

Our 5 Favorite Covers on CNCO’s ‘Déjá Vu’ Album: Ricky Martin, Aventura, and more

Latin boyband CNCO is back with the new album Déjá Vu out Feb. 5. For their third LP, the guys are covering the Latin pop hits of the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s by artists like Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Aventura, and Ricardo Montaner. Whoever your mom was bumping when it was time to clean the house on Sunday, CNCO has most likely tackled their song.

CNCO is taking on the Latin pop classics on Déjá Vu.

Not only will the fans of the original artists be excited to hear CNCO’s updates, but the group is doing a service to their Gen-Z fans by introducing them to these classics in a refreshing way. The guys – Joel Pimentel, Zabdiel de Jésus, Erick Brian Colon, Richard Camacho, and Christopher Vélez – also push themselves more as singers on these beloved songs to give the best vocal performances of their career.

Déjá Vu is CNCO’s trip through the history of Latin pop music. Latido Music is here to guide you through five of our favorite covers on the album.

“Tan Enamorados”

“Tan Enamorados” was the first song to kick off CNCO’s Déjá Vu era. The guys put a fresh reggaeton spin on the classic by Argentine icon Ricardo Montaner. Every member gets their shine in soaring performances that lift this love song to new heights, especially Pimentel. In the music video, CNCO pays homage to one of the greats that came before them, New Kids on the Block.

“Hero”

“Hero” marks the first time that CNCO has recorded a song that’s completely in English. The guys capture the tenderness of the original by Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias. There’s an especially endearing moment at the end when Colon promises, “I can be your hero.” Save us, Erick! CNCO seemingly channels the Backstreet Boys in the music video.

“Dejaría Todo”

CNCO turns Boricua superstar Chayanne’s “Dejaría Todo” into a tropical bop. The guys come through with charming performances, especially de Jésus, who reps Puerto Rico proudly on the song. Vélez and Colon also are captivating with their breezy interpretations matching the song’s reggae influence. The music video reflects CNCO right now as the guys sit back and just sing from the heart.

“Un Beso”

“Un Beso” is a big moment for Camacho, who proudly reps the Dominican Republic by way of New York City. That’s the same story for the song’s original act, Aventura, who is led by the king of bachata Romeo Santos. CNCO turns the song into a trapchata bop, which is a mix of bachata and trap music. Santos is known for his sensual lyrics and the guys rise to the occasion. They’re quite the smooth operators here.

“El Amor de Mi Vida”

“El Amor de Mi Vida” is a full-circle moment for CNCO. The song is originally by Ricky Martin. The Puerto Rican superstar not only paved the way for them in Menudo, but he also helped put CNCO together on the reality TV series La Banda in December 2015. Now more than five years later and the guys are proudly carrying on his legacy with this hypnotizing update.
