Latin urban artists are, for the most part, known for the sultry and unfiltered lyrics found in their reggaeton or trap songs. Though these tracks are meant for an intense perreo at the club, many of today’s urban acts also show a softer, more romantic side to them in their music.

Bad Bunny surprised fans with his heartfelt “Amorfoda,” Natti Natasha flaunted her versatility as an artist in her empowering track “La Mejor Versión de Mi,” and leave it to Karol G to encourage her boyfriend Anuel AA to drop a love ballad together in “Dices que te Vas.”

Earlier this week, Ozuna also dropped a romantic bop titled “Amor Genuino” as part of his forthcoming studio album, Nibiru.

Without further ado, check out nine love ballads by Latin urban artists below.

“Ocean” - Karol G

Wearing her heart on her sleeve, Karol G penned her emotions in “Ocean” part of her new album of the same name.

“Dices que te Vas” - Karol G, Anuel AA

Her album is also home to “Dices que te Vas,” a song that puts into perspective the beginning of her relationship with Anuel AA.

“Marinero” - Maluma

Accompanied by his two friends—the electric guitar and a bottle of alcohol—Maluma belts out lyrics on heartbreak in “Marinero.”

“Amor Genuino” - Ozuna

Singing about a genuine kind of love that only he can offer, Ozuna dropped “Amor Genuino,” part of his upcoming third studio album.

Colombian songstress Greeicy is known for her pop-urban melodies, but in “Ya Para Que?,” she flaunts her romanticism.
