It’s 2020 and we have already got some fire perreos. We’ve got Daddy Yankee, we’ve got Nicky Nicky Nicky Jam, we’ve got J Balvin, and we’ve even got some Shakira Shakira. Add these songs to your playlist and all your friends will be like, “whoa, who sings that? It’s fire! So without further ado, here are some of the newest songs of the year worth giving a listen!
“Muevelo” by Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam
We love Daddy Yankee, so of course, we had to throw his new track on here. Now this song is a little more old-school reggaeton-sounding like when Los Cangris first broke out in Puerto Rico. Side note: Nicky Jam and Daddy Yankee were known as “Los Cangris” back in the day. This song features fragments of the 1994 song “Here Comes the Hot Stepper” by Ini Kamoze so it’s got a 90’s vibe to it. We’re really digging the throwback feel.
“Morado” by J Calvin
J Balvin has dropped another hit that you’ll want to throw onto your pregame playlist. This midtempo reggaeton track describes someone who is powerful, which is our mood these days. According to J Balvin, he sees music as colors and he wants all of his fans to feel the colors on his upcoming album. We’re feeling it!
“Recuerdo” by Tini, Mau y Ricky
This song is a sexy banger. Tini is a 22-year-old singer from Argentina and in case you didn’t already know, she’s dating Sebastian Yatra. “Recuerdo” is a sensual track but upbeat track that will definitely get you up and moving.
“Manuela” by Sharlene ft. Farina and Tainy
Sharlene just released her first album, Viaje. The songs on the track are upbeat and catchy, especially a hit-favorite “Manuela.” It’s definitely the kind of track that will stay in our head all day. Equally as catchy is “Dieta,” another song from the album.
“Me Gusta” by Anuel AA and Shakira
YASSS! Anuel and Shakira. What could be better? You may recognize the beginning from “Sweat” by Inner Circle, a song released by a Jamaican reggae group in 1992, but Anuel and Shakira have added a reggaeton twist to it. These two have released so many bangers, but this song is everything.
“Maldad” by Steve Aoki and Maluma
Praise Jesus, our Latin Lord and Savior has teamed up with Steve Aoki to bring us some new music. In an interview, Aoki told Billboard that this song took years to make. This song is a Latin urban fusion with Middle Eastern rhythms and it’s definitely got Maluma’s flavor in there. YES!
“Aventura” by Lunay featuring Anuel AA and Ozuna
Lunay recently released his newest single “Aventura”. It gives major “Soltera” vibes, mostly because it’s another banger but instead of Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee, he teamed up with Anuel AA and Ozuna. This song is a must-have on your playlist this month.
“Ya Tu Me Conoces” by Thalia, Mau y Ricky
This is no “Si No Me Acuerdo” but it’s still a poppin song. In fact, it makes for a great house party track. It will definitely have you and your friends dancing and singing along all night. Also, can Thalia share her skincare regime? She looks flawless in this video!
“Borracho De Amor” by Cali y El Dandee and Reik
Cali y El Dandee linked up with Reik to bring a pop hit that you can bump when you’re trying to get over your ex. It has a more mellow start, but picks up with a catchy chorus.
“Viene Y Va” by C. Tangana and Natti Natasha
This song will put you in chill mode, for sure. It’s basically about how life comes and go and the importance of enjoying life’s best moments. Natti Natasha gives the song a subtle tone with a heavy beat. The video also gives black and white Old Hollywood film vibes.
