Shaq And Jimmy Fallon Got Down In This Lip Sync Battle, And Pitbull Could Not Control His Laughter

During last night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon decided to challenge Shaquille O’Neal to a lip sync battle. Little did Fallon know that Shaq had a special guest to help him out — PITBULL. Check out how it went down when this NBA Hall of Famer paired up with Mr. Worldwiiiide. ?

Fallons’ performance definitely deserved a little applause and head nod.

Shaq even brought a person from the audience onto the stage to werk it out.

But the lip sync battle was really over for Fallon once Shaq’s special guest appeared on the stage: PITBULL.

Of course there was no way for Fallon to compete against this dynamic duo.

And the best part about the lip sync battle wasn’t the lip syncing itself — it was Pitbull’s reactions.

I’ve never seen him leap to such altitudes just to give someone a high five.

He was just SO. HAPPY.

He was like a little kid all over again. ?

The entire night, Shaq had him smiling and laughing from ear to ear.

So it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was crying tears of joy underneath those sunglasses.

Watching Shaq carry Jimmy like a baby made Pitbull the happiest man on the Earth.

What do you think? Cutest Pitbull moment ever, or what? ?

Rising Star Chesca Talks Career Beginnings, Being a Latina in the Music Industry, Performing at Jimmy Kimmel and More

Welcome to Spotlight, where we do a deep dive into the careers of artists, producers, songwriters, and more people making an impact in the Latin music industry.

Puerto Rican singer Chesca is the definition of a hustler. She started as the vocalist for her dad’s cover band in Puerto Rico and became her own manager booking shows in places like China and Greece. The world is hers for the taking and she is going for it.

Chesca is ready for global stardom and she’s taking it one step at a time.

During our interview here at Latido Music by mitú, Chesca opened up about how a tragic accident at 11 years old changed her life, how music literally saved her, and the sacrifices she’s had to make to be where she is today.

Watch the full interview below:

Chesca is aware that being a Latina in the music industry isn’t easy but feels compelled to share her story and everything she’s had to do to get here. She would pretend to be her own manager and publicist at the beginning of her career. Chesca would book herself shows around the world where she would get to perform her own original songs. One of her songs actually got picked up by the radio in China, which is a market not many Latin stars even imagine entering, especially not when they’re just starting their careers.

“With everything that I’ve been through, I have a voice, and I have a story to tell that can motivate so many young women, that’s what keeps me going,” Chesca says.

While she had some success performing in English, she felt that she needed to go back to her roots and start doing music in Spanish. The stars aligned, and Chesca was signed by Saban Music Group, and currently has some high-profile collaborations under her belt. She’s behind the viral hit like “Te Quiero Baby (I Love You Baby),” which blew up on TikTok and led her to perform at the Latin Billboards last year with Pitbull.

Chesca most recently performed at the 2021 Latin AMAs red carpet and received a nomination for Best New Latin Artist at the 2021 iHeart Radio Music Awards.

After our conversation with Chesca, it’s clear that she’s making the right moves at the right time to make a name for herself in the industry, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for her career.

5 Songs From The Week You Should Add To Your Playlist

To get ready for the weekend, Latido Music has rounded up five of the best songs of the week to add to your playlists. Check out our favorites of the week below.

Jencarlos & Pitbull “Cosita Linda”

Jencarlos Canela is back with his hottest music video yet for “Cosita Linda.” The Cuban-American singer reunites with Mr. Worldwide Pitbull for the romantic reggaeton romp. Jencarlos sings sweet somethings in Spanish while getting hot-and-heavy with a beautiful model on the beach. Like a romance novel cover come to life, the hunky artist and his on-screen love interest serve plenty of body. There’s something for everyone here and that’s the true cosita linda.

Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Lunay, Brytiago, & Revol “Fantasia Sexual”

This is the freakiest playlist with “Fantasia Sexual.” Puerto Rican hitmaker Revel rounded up the heartthrobs on the rise in reggaeton for this alluring bedroom banger. Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Lunay, and Brytiago don’t hold back as they deliver their verses that are equally flirty and dirty. The music video is just as steamy with the guys admiring beautiful women in supernatural scenes. Their power of their “Fantasia Sexual” is irresistible and unmatched.

Maria Becerra & Cazzu “Animal”

Argentina’s rising pop star Maria Becerra teamed up with Cazzu, the country’s Latin trap music queen, for their collaboration “Animal.” Latin trap with a reggaeton bounce collide on this fierce girl power moment in music. Becerra and Cazzu cut loose on the song about an independent woman that’s on the prowl and living her best life. The music video is set in a futuristic jungle where the both ladies are free to roam and perrear as they please.

Dimelo Flow, Sech, Tyga & J.I. “Girl Like You”

The hitmaking producer behind Panamanian superstar Sech, Dimelo Flow, is stepping to the forefront with this debut single “Girl Like You.” Sech returns the favor by featuring on the R&B-meets-reggaeton banger with rap star Tyga and rising Nuyorican artist J.I. the Prince of N.Y. In Spanish and English, the guys try to win over the women of their dreams with lines that are just as dreamy. Dimelo and the gang get caught up in a Jumanji-like game filled with Jurassic Park dinosaurs in the wild music video.

Lauren Jauregui f/ Pabllo Vittar “Lento” (Brabo Remix)

Cuban-American superstar Lauren Jauregui teamed up with Brazil’s drag pop superstar Pabllo Vittar for a new remix of “Lento.” With Jauregui, who is openly bisexual, and Vittar together, the LGBTQ+ representation and excellence jumps out. Jauregui remains a captivating force on the track while Vittar comes through with a hypnotic performance of her own. Tainy’s original reggaeton production is given a touch of Brazil thanks to Brabo’s remix. This is the best version of Jauregui’s “Lento” yet.
