Daddy Yankee’s New Zumba Song ‘Hula Hoop’ Is Definitely Not For Children

If you’ve been trying to find a way to combine your two favorite things (getting fit and breaking it all the way down), peep this banger from the Puerto Rican reggaetón superstar, Mr. Gasolina himself, Daddy Yankee! According to Billboard, Daddy Yankee has partnered with Zumba to create the song “Hula Hoop” for use in their classes.

The bass-heavy reggaetón track has a lyric video featuring flashing neon hula hoops and classic Zumba moves .

It’s got everything you’d expect from a Daddy Yankee Zumba video: hip shaking, hand-punching, lasers and a packed VIP section. What else do you need to work out and feel like you’re getting your life together? Yasss!

The video even shows you how to do the exercise on beat with a dancing cursor.

Rómpele! Rómpele! Rómpele! I know, it sounds a little repetitive, but believe me, you’ll feel the burn in no time.

It’s really a workout video in a sultry disguise. If you follow along, you’ll have a sick core in just a few short weeks.

Bad Bunny Surprises With Release Of New Album ‘Las Que No Iban a Salir’ Extending His Reign As Reggaeton’s Leading Man

I know we’re all in quarantine and millions are still in lockdown. But Bad Bunny is making these super strange times a bit less horrible thanks so his constant stream of entertainment.

From his album ‘YHLQMDLG’, which he just released in March, to free concerts on Instagram Live and some seriously perfect Instagram stories – Bad Bunny is making sure we’re all well-stocked with Bad Bunny content during this pandemic.

And now, our beloved Conejo Malo kicked off his Mother’s Day celebration by dropping a collection of tracks – which were definitely teased during his next-level Instagram Live from last weekend – titled Las Que No Iban a Salir, or The [tracks] That Weren’t Going to be Released.

Las Que No Iban a Salir is just the latest in epic drops from the epic reggaetonero.

Just two months after the release of his last album, Bad Bunny is back with a surprise new album. It’s called Las Que No Iban a Salir. Among the guests on this surprise 10-track collection are: Zion & Lennox, Yandel, Don Omar, Nicky Jam, Jhay Cortez and his girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri.

The new album comes just two months after his sophomore album, YHLQMDLG, made history.

Bad Bunny released YHLQMDLG in March and it made history on the Billboard charts. YHLQMDLG debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, scoring the highest charting all-Spanish-language album ever.

Listeners have returned to the album consistently in the weeks since its release. YHLQMDLG hasn’t left the Top Ten, and its racked up nearly a billion streams in the U.S. alone. The album conquered old-school mediums as well as the digital world. “Yo Perreo Sola” and “La Dificil,” a pair of legit reggaeton singles, are both Top 20 on Latin radio this week.

There are some serious bops on this album. I’m already obsessed with ‘En Casita’!

“En Casita” (At Home) features his girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri, who he has been quarantined with in his native Puerto Rico during the Coronavirus pandemic. Berlingeri who previously avoided the spotlight has been making frequent appearances on Bad Bunny’s social media channels.

Then there’s his SNL skit which was hilarious.

The Latin Grammy Award-winning artist made his debut on Saturday Night Live during their April 25 broadcast where Kenan Thompson played baseball star David Ortiz, better known as Big Papi. The skit titled “Big Papi’s Cooking Show” featured Bad Bunny as a character named Big Bunny ready to sell audiences pots and pans for any kitchen, as well as sweatpants.

Bad Bunny is living his best life during this pandemic and I am so grateful he’s helping us all cope with new music during these truly strange times.

Reggaeton And K-Pop Battle It Out With J Balvin Leading The Charge In ‘Trolls World Tour’

Reggaeton And K-Pop Battle It Out With J Balvin Leading The Charge In ‘Trolls World Tour’

“Trolls World Tour” is now streaming so everyone who can’t go to the movie theaters can see the highly anticipated animated film. The movie is giving all kinds of musical genres love showing the wide world of music. Don’t worry. Reggaeton finds its way into the movie and J Balvin is carrying the torch.

J Balvin is giving reggaeton and Latino music some serious representation in “Trolls World Tour.”

“I am a troll and represented reggaeton 🌈🌈🌈 for the culture. #colores @trolls the movie !! LATINO GANG,” J Balvin wrote on his Instagram caption.

Honestly, this kind of representation for children is something that we all need to celebrate. J Balvin’s character Tresillo is fighting for reggaeton and it’s admirable. Not only are we hearing some Spanish in the movie, Tresillo corrected the mispronunciation of his name and that is something that we can all relate to.

Tresillo is the kind of character so many people are able to relate to.

Who would want to live in a world without reggaeton? That kind of world just doesn’t seem like the kind of world worth living in. Imagine a world without Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, or Bad Bunny. What a sad world that would be.

The way he corrects the pronunciation of his name is everything.

How many times have you had to correct the way someone mispronounced your name? Bonus points if the person acted offended or thought you were being too dramatic. A name is something that is so important to a person. No name is too hard that people can’t pronounce it. After all, people can pronounce Zach Galifianakis so why should they struggle with pronouncing any of our names?

Truly, Tresillo might be the kind of visual distraction so many of us need to make it through this time.

Thank you for giving us some representation even in all of this. It is really so small but in a world like this, it can really make the difference. Children stuck at home can now see themselves represented in the Trolls universe.

This troll even moves with the culture.

Get it, J Balvin. Thank you for always doing it for the culture and doing it right. You can watch “Trolls World Tour” now.
