“Safari,” the latest single from J. Balvin’s album “Energía,” is packed with heavy, ear-thumping intensity and this recently-released video — not quite a full video and not a lyric video — will take you on a safari-level acid trip. The track features J. Balvin backed by the ballistic rhymes of BIA, the beauty of Sky, and the sweet Spanish-language vocals of Pharrell, who produced the track. Balvin described the enthusiasm that went into making the song: “When you work with Pharrell, you gotta bring 200 percent.”

Barely a month old, “Energía” has already received colossal levels of love from Balvin’s fans, as well as critical acclaim across the globe. The first video from the album, “Bobo,” already has over 238 million views on YouTube, and holds the single day record of views for a Latin artist. The mass-appeal of “Bobo” shows that Balvin’s strength as a musician comes from his ability to connect with his audience. Balvin recently told Billboard that relatable lyrics equal success: “And that’s what happened with ‘Bobo’.”

Karol G Goes Yee-Haw in “Location” Music Video with J Balvin and Anuel AA

Karol G is breaking in 2021 with one of the biggest collaborations of the Year. The Colombian superstar teamed up with J Balvin and her fiancé, Anuel AA, for “Location.” The trio gives reggaeton a country music makeover in the music video that was released on Feb. 12.

Karol G takes reggaeton on a country music detour.

There’s no denying Karol G’s star power that only grew stronger in 2020. Her last single “Bichota” impressively peaked within the top 10 of Billboard‘s Global 200 chart that pulls streaming data from over 200 countries and territories, including the U.S. To keep the momentum going, she recruited her compatriot J Balvin and Puerto Rican trapero Anuel for “Location.”

Karol G wrote “Location” with J Balvin, Anuel AA, and her longtime producer Ovy on the Drums, who at the helm of this stellar collaboration. Karol finds her groove in the song’s unique blend of reggaeton, Latin trap, and country music. Balvin and Anuel come along for the ride in this perreo-ready hoedown. There was going to be a point where the old town road led to Colombia. Karol dropped a pin on one of the most fun and imaginative moments in reggaeton with “Location.”

It’s a reggaeton hoedown in the “Location” music video.

The music video for “Location” was directed by Colin Tilley, who has shot videos for pop stars like Justin Bieber, Halsey, and Britney Spears. Karol G goes full yee-haw rocking a cowboy hat with her rhinestoned outfit. J Balvin and Anuel also get in on the reggaeton jig in the middle of the desert.

Karol G’s next album is a highly-anticipated release of the year. She’s so far previewed it with the previous hits “Bichota” and “Ay, Dios Mío!”

J Balvin Gives Drill Music a Spin in Eladio Carrión’s “TATA” Music Video

J Balvin has pretty much done it all when it comes to music. The Colombian superstar dabbles in drill music for the first time in Eladio Carrión’s “TATA” music video that was released on Feb. 8.

Eladio Carrión’s music reflects hip-hop in both the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

“TATA” is one of the standout tracks on Eladio Carrión’s second album Monarca. He’s Puerto Rican by way of Kansas. Having grown up in both the mainland U.S. and Puerto Rico, Carrión’s music not only reflects Latin trap and reggaeton, but also hip-hop and the emerging drill music genre.

The late Dominican-American rapper Pop Smoke helped popularize drill music on his posthumously-released debut album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon. Another Bronx-based Dominican rapper, Chucky73, extended the genre’s reach with his album De Chamaquito Siempre Cabezu last year.

J Balvin hits the NYC streeets with Carrión in the “TATA” video.

The drill music banger on Monarca is “TATA” featuring J Balvin. For J Balvin, it’s one of his first times giving this latest iteration of hip-hop music a spin. Carrión sounds at home as he flexes his malleable, bilingual flow in Spanish and English. Balvin finds his footing alongside Carrión as he boasts about his luxurious lifestyle. Carrión and Balvin rhyme Hakuna Matata with “Tata” and make it sound cool on this swaggering, soon-to-be rap classic.

In the music video for “TATA,” Carrión and J Balvin take it to the streets of New York City, where drill music reigns. The guys later bring the party into a local bodega and later into a run-down apartment. The snow outside doesn’t slow down their turn-up.

Carrión’s Monarca reached No. 11 on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Albums chart last month. Argentina’s trap music queen Cazzu, Boricua heartthrob Lunay, and rising Mexican star Natanael Cano are among the other featured artists on the album.
