For the non spanish speakers, this is a cool explanation of the spanish verses of Cardi B's I Like It, featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin

I was the former manager of this guy a couple years ago.
He's a great lyricist.

Do you make a Spotify playlists with all your recommendations? This would be great.

By the way, this really sounds lovely.

I do but I don't share them. My Spotify profile is public though.
I have playlists for producers, for songwriters, for interesting single songs each month, for genres... hahaha :)

Ya No Tiene Novio became a smash, it was released two weeks ago and has 75 million views. It was produced by Tainy.

Ozuna is one of the greatest new reggaeton stars. His new album is released today.
This one is produced by DVLP and features J Balvin and Natti Natasha.

And Joey Montana had a great success with Picky a couple years ago.
This one is produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andres Torres, which are the hottest producers right now -along Tiny- in the latin market.

And Lele Pons' Celoso -released last week- has 36M views. Against Janet Jackson's new single also released last friday, which counts 21M.

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:

AJ Janussi, Bilal Hajji, Chesca, Jimmy Thörnfeldt, Jose Garcia, Philip Naslund

Produced by: Jimmy Thörnfeldt
And I liked it..

I don't like the TINI album. Boring.

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.
