Sebastian Yatra is on a winning streak this year, winning another Billboard fan poll.
After a two-week poll asking readers to vote for the best Spanglish collaboration of 2020 (so far), voters ultimately crowned “Elita” by Gary Barlow, Michael Buble and Yatra with more than 96 percent of the votes. Other collabs included Maluma and The Weeknd’s “Hawai (Remix),” Rosalia and Travis Scott’s “TKN,” and Jonas Brothers and Karol G’s “X.”
Released on Sept. 30, “Elita” is about witnessing the power of women. Its salsa-infused pop blend makes it an “exciting, sexy, and empowering” song, Bublé said on Twitter.
The collaboration was born in late 2019 when Barlow and Bublé were set to share credits. However, it was Bublé who suggested that his good friend and Colombian artist Yatra would be the perfect fit on the track. “Within an hour, we were all on the phone, and when Sebastian sent the track back, we were just thrilled,” Barlow said in a statement. “He has this amazing charisma — it just sounded so authentic.”
Yatra recently won the best Latin collaboration of October with his Guyana-assisted “Chica Ideal.”
