Latin Contemporary Music
« on: April 07, 2017, 03:25:45 AM »
I think we will have a second latino boom sometime this year or next.
Reggaeton is taking over the sound of the productions.
Ricky Martin released his new single last year with Maluma -the biggest current latin singer- with lyrics in spanish.

The single from the next Fast & Furious movie is a reggaeton song and features Pitbull, J Balvin -one of the biggest reggaeton stars- and Camila Cabello.

Is such a hit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWLr2va3hu0

There's a new english version available tomorrow.
The spanish version is waaaaaay better.

Well, I don't think of it as a boom, but more like a trend.

Most pop stars in Latin America are recording with Reggaeton artists.

Shakira recently worked with Maluma too (Chantaje) and then with the bachata artist Prince Royce (Deja Vu).
Also, Luis Fonsi's Despacito, with Daddy Yankee, is currently at No.44 in the Billboard Hot 100.

Despacito is a huge worldwide hit. 823 millions or Youtube plays.
J Balvin's Ginza has 685 millions... and counting.

I anticipate a second latin boom.

Latin artists dominate half of the most viewed songs on YouTube daily, with Luis Fonsi having the crown. I can't say the same with Spotify, but this isn't a trend to die anytime soon.
We shouldn't forget either Enrique iglesias and his third try of remaking bailando.

How nice - I used to love the first latin pop wave with Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony.

This new era is more urban - but it's great to have this influence back.
And I liked it..

I think is because the audience is fully connected with the technology.
And they listen to music from Youtube.

People doesn't buy records or digital albums in Latin America.

In Latin America Spotify it's not very popular yet, that's why you wouldn't see Drake on these charts but still charting number one. Despacito it's a deal breaker, with 16m views daily it only peaked 42 or 43, a sign of how Latin American people are taking all over YouTube.

Too bad that the fast and furious song hasn't been release with Britney Spears.

Bieber is featured on a new version of the most played latin song of the year.

Currently #9 on the Hot 100 on his first week.

Well, latin invasion... cough*

I know this song for quite a while now and also observed the latin wave and how this song especially climbed in all the countries.

I had Spanish in school but I don't get too many. But Justin's Spanish sounds authentic to me.
And I liked it..
