Title: Latin Contemporary Music
Post by: j.fco.morales 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.

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.

Post by: nanofives on April 09, 2017, 07:50:09 PM
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.

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

"Bendecido" is pretty good!

I like CNCO

"Reggaeton Lento (Bailemos) [Remix]" should be a worldwide hit.

"Hey DJ (Pop Version)" also has lots of potential.

Shakira will have a new album out soon. I think it's the perfect time for her.

Btw - I listened to Luis Fonsi long before his big breakthrough hit now. He had lots of beautiful songs.

I love that in Latin pop ballads the singer give really their all into the song. Without being ashamed of being over the top.

She's HOT AF and still unsigned, she got almost 90k views with NO PROMO.

Gloria Trevi was a big star in the 90s with rock infused songs and brilliant songwriting.
She was in jail but after she was released, took her music career again. She's 50 now.

Check the song. I love the lyrics.
The song was produced by J Balvin collaborator Jeon.

Love these two.
The first one was produced by Tainy -my fave latin producer- and the second one by Andres Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, the guys behind Despacito.

I don't like the TINI album. Boring.

But this is great in my opinion:

I don't like her at all, but the record sounds great.

There's two Jason Evigan songs, one Ross Golan co write and other Leah Haywood & Daniel James cowrite.


Jhay Cortez is a frequent J Balvin collaborator. He cowrote almost every song on Vibras.
He released a new song -probably from these sessions- featuring Zion & Lennox. Sounds a bit like No Es Justo.

He's also featured in the new single of a friend of mine, Xantos, produced by Tainy.

Maikel Delacalle is a spanish artist, he works closely with Alejandro Sky Ramirez, close J Balvin collaborator as well.
Those beats are great, not really feeling the lyrics or the melodies, but the tracks are some of the best tracks I've heard in a while.

Rosalia's El Mal Querer is one of the most anticipated latin albums of the year and is finally out. Check it out.



Paloma Mami is from Chile, where I'm based. She released independently her single Not Steady in July and got signed by Sony Latin a couple weeks ago.
Maluma posted an instagram story about his excitement about the song.

This is such a smash, it goes something like this: every monday you're not with me, always the same, why you always disappear on sundays? and you never reply, you do it like a magician and you disappear, I'm not for your fairytales, I'm no sleeping beauty. The chorus: from monday to thursday, he left me but with no desire, but in the weeknd he calls me he calls me he calls me.

Clever lyrics in each verse.

Farina is one to look, as well. That one was released last year, produced by Tainy, main J Balvin collaborator.

I'm so disgusted by these guys but I can't help it with catchy melodies and sing along choruses.
Morat are a pop band from Colombia, produced by Andres Torres and Mauricio Rengifo.

Sounds a lot like OneRepublic, Ed Sheeran or Max Martin.

I am currently listening to this one: big names on the credits.

Tainy, DJ DalePlay, Jumbo EQPS, Antonio Rayo and Armando Lozano & Edgan Andino -Wisin & Yandel former manager- for example.

Check Háblame Bajito, La Boca Agua -sounds like Havana- and Karma :)

Borracha features some afropop rhythms and spanish lyrics.
Paloma Mami released her new second single, produced by Mambo Kings and DJ Luian, frequent Bad Bunny collaborators.
And there's a new remix of Te Boté -a big hit in Latin America- featuring Jennifer Lopez & Wisin Yandel.

Bad Bunny released his first album tonight, a la Beyoncé.

Features co production by Tainy, frequent J Balvin collaborator.
I'm a huge fan of his. Probably the best producer in Latin America.

Colombian band Morat's new single features spanish singer Aitana (they are like the bubble gum latin version of OneRepublic to me).
It was produced by Mauricio Rengifo y Andrés Torres.

And Paloma Mami is doing GREAT at the moment, she released three singles and this one is her more recent, produced by Sharo Towers.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltYUH6fEYdECheck the video, it was released three weeks ago and has 23m views on Youtube.

Mau y Ricky are Ricardo Montaner's siblings: their brothers is the head of A&R at Universal Latin and released their new album this friday.
They co-wrote Sin Pijama by Becky G.

Full of reggaeton bops and guest features.
I love the Tainy produced tracks on the album: Mal Acompańados, Mi Mala, Ya No Tiene Novio and Desconocidos.

Plus, colombian reggaeton star released her second album, after having a huge hit with "Mi Cama".

I really like the hook of the song, it's very catchy but I feel that the song is very out of place considering the other songs of the album, I like the salsa vibes, but doesn't fit in a reggaeton based album.
