Artist-producers Tainy and Benny Blanco have dropped the video for their slinky new track, “I Can’t Get Enough,” featuring vocals by Selena Gomez and J Balvin. The crew first teased their new clip via Instagram in February — nestled under a cozy duvet, the Latino Gang is photographed wearing silky pajama sets, while Benny Blanco […]

Over the last 20 years, Puerto Rican MC Ivy Queen has earned many nicknames: including La Diva, La Caballota or, simply, the Queen. But above all she is the First Lady of reggaeton — no really, the first — and lest anybody forget, she’s bounded back to claim her throne in 2019 with new EP, […]

Festival NRMAL has long been the black sheep of Mexico’s vibrant live music landscape — first emerging as a party for Monterrey’s esoteric indie kids and now as the country’s foremost D.I.Y. and experimental music spectacle. Yet even after expanding and relocating to Mexico City in 2015, the festival’s mission has remained constant in its […]

Few producers had a better 2018 than Tainy, who, over the course of a remarkable eight-month stretch, helped steer three distinct, formidable projects — Cardi B, J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s “I Like It,” Balvin’s Vibras and Bad Bunny’s X100Pre — to Number One on their respective charts. Tainy is back for more with “I […]

With their 1994 breakthrough LP, CrazySexyCool, TLC members Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins, Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas had finessed their R&B-to-pop crossover with flying colors. Hit songs like “Waterfalls” and “Creep” not only garnered the group multiple Grammy wins, but reflected a zeitgeist of sexually assertive and self-educated young women of the Nineties. […]

Dalex and Rafa Pabón’s “Pa Mí” is the latest single to benefit from the ensemble-remix treatment that has boosted recent hits like Nio García, Casper Mágico and Darell’s “Te Boté,” El Alfa’s “Suave” and Alex Rose’s “Toda.” In the original “Pa Mí,” Dalex sings with stirring force about romantic fixation, sounding possessive to the point of […]

British billionaire and Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson announced a benefit show last week to raise funds for food and medicine for the citizens of Venezuela. Modeled after Bob Geldof’s Eighties ‘Live Aid’ telethons for Ethiopia, the concert is set to take place this Friday in the Colombian border town of Cúcuta, which sits on […]

One way to measure a hit is with charts — pour over the streaming rankings, compare them with radio spins, contrast them with sales totals. Another method involves simply tallying tributes. How many facsimiles and replicas does one song inspire? Nio Garcia, Casper Magico and Darell’s “Te Boté” is performing well in both counts. It […]

What might the baddest boys in Spain and Brazil do to get a woman’s attention? Madrid’s Latin Grammy-winning rapper C. Tangana, along with São Paulo baile funk artiste MC Bin Laden, count the many stunts they’d pull in a springy new track released Thursday called “Pa’ Llamar Tu Atención,” or “To Get Your Attention.” Produced […]

Bad Bunny conjures his own female proxy in the Latin trap king’s surreal new “Caro” video. The clip opens with the original Bunny in a plush cotton robe, getting his nails painted black. Manicures are a favorite pastime for the Latin pop star, to the vexation of his critics; not to mention the employees of a certain Spanish […]
