Song: "No Es Justo" / Artist: J Balvin, Zion & Lennox
Once again, J Balvin joins forces with Zion & Lennox to repeat the winning formula. "No Es Justo," which means "It's Not Fair," is a reggaeton song that tells a story that describes a girl who conquered them through dance. The song will be part of Balvin's album, Vibras, due May 25. - Suzette Fernández
Song: Mi Cama / Artist: Karol G
Sexy but cute. That’s what Karol G manages to convey in the new single “Mi Cama,” a celebration of newfound liberty whose electro-beat is all about the “sounds my bed makes.” Catchy and rhythmic, it will get you dancing, and the video -- and explosion of color -- shot in Medellin will get you looking. -- Leila Cobo
Album: Ubuntu / Artist: Piso 21
Piso 21 has made their official debut with Ubuntu, the first album under Warner Music Latina. The 13-song album fuses a unique urban sound with romantic lyrics, whose producers include Andres Torres and Mauricio Rengifo (Despacito), Mosty, Sky and Wain, among others. The album release was accompanied by their official single presentation, "La Vida Sin Ti." Listen to the album below. -- SF
Song: "Dale" / Artist: Niña Dioz
Mexican rapper Niña Dioz offers a fresh new take on hip-hop with her bilingual track “Dale,” off her new album, Reyna, out Friday (May 11). Dioz mixes street style and unapologetic lyrics that tell a story of success, making this a motivational anthem, especially for women. -- Jennifer Machin
Song: "Todo Pasará" / Artist: Olga Tañon, Alex Zurdo, Abraham Velázquez
