Camilo & Evaluna’s ‘PLIS,’ Los Ángeles Azules’ ‘La Cumbia Triste’ & More: Which Is Your Favorite New Latin Music Release? Vote!

This week, Billboard‘s New Music Latin roundup and playlist — curated by Billboard Latin and Billboard Español editors — feature fresh new releases from artists such as Camilo, Los Ángeles Azules in collaboration with Alejandro Fernández, Angélica Garcia and more.

After days of teasing, “PLIS,” a new collab with his wife Evaluna, Camilo not only released that track, but two more. “PLIS” “Gordo” and “No Se Vale” make up the Colombian singer-songwriter’s new EP, titled Un. The three-song set highlights the elegance of live instruments such as a saxophone, trumpets, trombones, conga, and güira with charming musical arrangements, writes Billboard Español‘s Luisa Calle.

“17 musicians got together to play at El Taller Creativo. When we counted ‘one, two, three, four’ we all did one thing. That ‘un’ (‘one’) that broke the silence aligned all the hearts that were there, recording music and video simultaneously, in the same take,” Camilo offered about the way the EP was recorded.


Separately, Camilo Lara’s Mexican Institute of Sound commemorates its 20-year anniversary with Algo-Ritmo: Mexican Institute of Sound Hits 2004-2024, a compilation that encapsulates Lara’s illustrious career. The collection features 24 songs, including new collaborations with Ceci Bastida, Esteman and Foudeqush.

The list of new releases includes two cumbias: “La Cumbia Triste” by Los Ángeles Azules with Alejandro Fernández — marking the first collab between the two acts — and Angélica Garcia’s “Juanita.” For Garcia, her cumbia track is about intentionality. “Many cumbias have lyrics about pain and longing … My intention was for the tension and confusion in the song to feel like remembering a past life. I wanted to capture what the shadow side of grief does to us,” she expressed in a statement.
