CNCO

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

“Te Lo Adverti” - Ecko

The group of young Latin urban stars keeps growing and, this time, Argentinian singer Ecko is here to join the club with his new song “Te lo Advertí.” The track, produced by Joel Iglesias (J Balvin, Bad Bunny) is about proving people wrong when they say he's not going to be successful in music. Its video reflects Ecko's past through a boy who has many dreams to realize. It also shows his present as a confident and successful adult, who sings to those who had no faith in him. Watch the video below. -- SUZETTE FERNANDEZ

“La Ley” - CNCO

CNCO dropped a new track called “La Ley,” which was written by CNCO with Andrea Mangiamarchi, Daniel Ignacio Rondon and Rafael Rodriguez. For this song, the CNCO members left aside the reggaeton beats to give their fans a romantic acoustic track whose lyrics are about breaking the law because they are in love. “La Ley will be part of the boy band’s EP Que Quienes Somos to be released on Oct. 11. -- SF

"Lucifer" - Milly

Make way for Milly, a new urban artist who's flaunting his sweet vocals and abilities to break a dance move in his new single "Lucifer." Released via Carbon Fiber Music, Farruko's record label, the dance-infused reggaeton "Lucifer" is a song about a woman who's trying to break free from a toxic relationship and live her life. "She wants to go out and forget about you / You don't know how to treat a woman / You created hell and she's 'Lucifer'" the rising act sings in the chorus." In the powerful music video, director Fernando Lugo perfectly visualizes a toxic relationship with scenes of a couple arguing to the bruises to the moment the girl escapes and finds her safe space. -- JESSICA ROIZ

"Cosita" - Valentino x Sech x Lenny Tavarez x Dalex

Valentino is back and has teamed up with some of the hottest urban acts of the moment. Joining forces with Puerto Rican artists Lenny Tavarez, Dalex and the Panamanian Latin Grammy nominee Sech, Valentino presents "Cosita," a sensual urban bop with infectious dancehall waves. In the track, the four artists are swooning a girl with raw lyrics such as "I'm not looking for a love story/ What's going to happen, is going to happen/ I'm waiting to give you heat and make you jump." The music video, filmed in the vibrant Miami nightlife, shows the boys driving their ladies around town. -- JR

No Me Mires Asi - Banda Los Sebastianes

Sinaloa's very own Banda Los Sebastianes are celebrating new music with the release of their studio album No Me Mires Asi (Don't look at me like that). The one hour and ten-minute set is home to 22 tracks including romantic Regional Mexican ballads such as the opener named after the album. In "La Persona Perfecta" and "Lo Primero y Lo Segundo," two heartfelt gems, the group sing about pure unconditional love. Just as the album has songs about love, there are tracks about heartbreak, as heard in "Sufriras Las Consecuencias" and "Por Meterme Contigo." "La Sebastiana," on the other hand, is a real party-starter. The uptempo, playful jam is about a woman named Sebastiana, who does not work and rather spend her time on social media and partying. As No Me Mires Asi wraps up, the Mexican group include a collaboration with Sebastian Yatra, where both acts sing a banda version of "Un Año" and a joint with Joey Montana, giving his "Suena el Dembow" a cumbia twist.
