Viva Friday is a compilation of the best new songs, albums and videos recommended by Billboard Latin editors.

This week on the Viva Friday playlist, we've got new music by Leslie Grace, Joey Montana, El Alfa, Yandel, Myke Towers and more. Check out the playlist below:

Leslie Grace, Justin Quiles & Play-N-Skillz - “Sola”

Leslie Grace is back! The American-Dominican singer teamed up with Justin Quiles and producers Play-N-Skillz to release “Sola,” an urban song with a touch of bachata sound that seems to be the next female empowerment anthem. "Sola" is about a woman who prefers to be alone than with  someone who will not value her. With this song, Grace stands out among all the women making urban music because the sound is fresh, different and catchy. -- Suzette Fernández

Joey Montana & Lalo Ebratt - “No Te Va”

Joey Montana is back with new music, and this time, he has recruited Lalo Ebratt. The Panamanian star and Colombian artist have teamed up to give life to “No Te Va,” a song that highlights Montana’s contagious pop-urban beats fused with Lalo’s melodious voice. The song is about a man who’s trying to convince a girl that her boyfriend is not the one for her. Meanwhile, the colorful music video shows the two artists playfully fighting for the same girl. Watch the new clip below. -- Jessica Roiz

El Alfa, Yandel & Myke Towers - “Dembow y Reggaeton”

Leave it to El Alfa to not only fuse two of the hottest urban genres but also jump on a track with a vieja escuela artist and nueva escuela artist. On “Dembow & Reggaeton,” El Alfa is joined by Yandel and Myke Towers to simply remind people that the two genres are what’s popping right now. The track kicks off with a sample of Yandel’s timeless track “Dembow” before going into a catchy dembow beat that instantly transports you to the Dominican Republic. The music video features all three artists and shows people of all ages dancing to the single. -- JR

La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho - “Menea, Menea”

Wearing a gray suit, Rene Camacho flaunts his dancing skills in the opening scene of La Arrolladora Banda el Limon’s latest single “Menea, Menea.” With summer in full swing, the Regional Mexican band dropped an infectious cumbia track ready to get any party started. The music video perfectly brings to the forefront the catchy dance melodies, showing La Arrolladora performing their song at a lively nightclub. -- JR

The Mariachi Ghost – "Cuerpo Mortal"

Winnipeg octet The Mariachi Ghost channel Jose José, Rafael and other Mexican prodigies of the '70s in “Cuerpo Mortal,” the lead single from their forthcoming sophomore album, Puro Dolor. Through the euphonious vocals of lead singer and band founder Jorge Requena, ushered by the brooding sounds of the trumpet and the accordion, the tune summons dominance and delirium in a music video produced by Futuro Libre Creative and The Mariachi Ghost, which sees two piñata men struggling for power. -- Pamela Bustios

La Santa Cecilia – "Winning"

La Santa Cecilia belts out another social issue with “Winning,” a song that candidly presents how social media dehumanizes society through Internet trolling. An '80s pop-rock-enthused tune, “Winning” kicks off with broad social-media comments through the cheery vocals of La Marisoul: “I can find no inspiration/ Never-ending information/ Always stuck in purgatory/ 'Cause I’m addicted to your story.” -- PB
