This week, our New Music Latin roundup — a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by Billboard Latin and Billboard Español editors — is powered by new music from Christian Nodal, who teams up with Peso Pluma for his first-ever corrido tumbado, Blessd, Bacilos and Bad Gyal, who dropped her debut album La Joia.
Blessd’s Si Sabe is home to 14 tracks and a true representation of the Colombian artist’s signature innovative reggaetón — al estilo Medellín — backed by sultry and futuristic urban beats. The set, Blessd’s third studio album, includes team-ups with artists such as Peso Pluma, Feid, Ryan Castro and Sky Rompiendo.
Meanwhile, Spanish artist Bad Gyal has unleashed her debut album La Joia, which finds expanding her musical range, with producers such as El Guincho, MAG, Sky Rompiendo and Storch in tow. Bad Gyal recruits Quevedo, Ñengo Flow and Myke Towers, among others, for collaborations.
Other new releases include Bacilos’ tropipop gem “Anoche,” Leon Leiden and DannyLux’s R&B-infused sad sierreño “awitado :(” and Christian Nodal and Peso Pluma’s highly anticipated new collaboration, “La Intención,” Nodal’s first corrido tumbado. Additionally, Ramón Vega and Lasso deliver the dreamy pop ballad “La Mexicana.”
“I am very grateful to him for believing in me, for connecting in that way and for taking the time and energy to be able to make this song together,” Vega told Billboard Español about working with Lasso. “It was something very special.”
Last week, Kenia Os’ “Bobo” won the reader poll with more than 60 percent of the votes, followed by Daymé Arocena and Vicente Garcia’s “A Fuego Lento.”
