This week, Billboard‘s New Music Latin roundup and playlist — curated by Billboard Latin and Billboard Español editors — feature fresh new releases from artists like Peso Pluma & Anitta, Mike Bahía, Diego Torres, J Balvin and more.
Balvin delivers a sentimental reggaeton ballad on “Amigos,” his latest track about pain of dealing with a relationship that became cold. “I went out to look at the moon, but I ended up looking at your photos/ Flaca, to be honest, I think about you even though our relationship is broken,” the Colombian star sings over a slow, melodic beat.
With “Bellakao”, Peso Pluma continues to demonstrate his musical versatility by joining Brazilian star Anitta in an exciting reggaeton in which the pair sing about feeling intoxicated with each other’s irresistibility. “Everyone wants to get close to me, but I don’t want anyone,” Anitta croons on the song’s first verse.
Meanwhile, Mike Bahía brings us a powerful message about mental health in “La Depre,” which he called “an important reminder for listeners that it’s okay to not always feel okay and that they don’t have to fight their battles alone” in a statement. The song marks the Colombian artist’s first merengue-urban fusion single.
Diego Torres presents a new anthem of hope with his niece and nephew Angela and Benja Torres in “Las Leyes de la Vida,” an emotional reflection on the passage of time and the importance of family and friends. Grupo Pesado releases a new version of its 2004 spite song “Ojalá Te Mueras” with Alejandra Guzmán, uniting norteño music and rock in a painful but fun delight.
In the New Music Latin fan-voted poll of last week, Thalia’s “Choro” won with over 50 percent of the votes. Milo J’s 111 followed with 27 percent of the votes, and Feid’s “Alakran” got third place with 10 percent. What’s your favorite new Latin music release of the week? Vote below!
