First Stream Latin is a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by the Billboard Latin editors. Check out this week’s picks below.
Christian Nodal feat. Banda MS, “La Sinverguenza” (Producciones Ladon)
Christian Nodal and Banda MS have joined forces for the first time ever, bringing to life “La Sinverguenza.” Produced by Jaime Gonzalez and co-penned by Nodal, Edgar Barrera, Elena Rose, and Horacio Palencia, the track is a mariachi-infused banda song that with its heartfelt lyrics can easily become the next anthem for the lovesick. Nodal and Banda MS, two of Regional Mexican’s biggest names right now, premiered their new single at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday (Sept. 23), where each of the acts walked away with an award. — JESSICA ROIZ
Ozuna, Wisin & Jhay Cortez, “Emojis de Corazones” (Sony Music Latin)
Hitmakers Ozuna, Wisin and Jhay Cortez join forces for a song. Powered by signature reggaeton drums, the seductive track finds the three men swooning over a girl who has them sending heart emojis all day every day. But, in case, it’s not reciprocal, they’ve got other options too. “Hearts emojis, I want it with you although I have a pair of other options,” they sing in the chorus. The track is produced by Los Legendarios, who won Latin rhythm artist of the year, duo or group at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards. — GRISELDA FLORES
Karol G, “Sejodioto” (Universal Music Latino)
During her Superstar Q&A at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Week, Karol G exclusively announced the release of her new single “Sejodioto.” “If you thought ‘Bichota’ was it, well guess what? ‘Se jodio todo,'” she said to the crowd. Produced by her longtime producer and Billboard Latin Music Awards producer of the year finalist Ovy on the Drums, the track is an infectious hard-hitting reggeaton fused with Karol’s melodious voice and a distinct clock-ticking sound. In true Karol G fashion, “Sejodioto” is a female anthem about a woman who’s enjoying every second of her freedom without commitments. — J.R.
Myke Towers, “Experimento” (Warner Music Latina)
A departure from Myke Towers’ signature rap anthems, “Experimento” is more of a soft pop-leaning track that showcases Towers’ versatility and experimental side. The winner of new artist of the year at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards, the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter premiered the track at the annual awards show where he fused the track with salsa rhythms. At its core, the track is a certified bop with head-bobbing beats that finds Towers reminiscing on a wild night that left him wanting more from a love interest that has him wrapped around her finger. — G.F.
Natti Natasha & Maluma, “Imposible Amor” (Pina Records/Sony Music Latin)
Teaming up for the first time, Natti Natasha and Maluma deliver new collab “Imposible Amor,” featured on Natasha’s sophomore album, NattiVidad. The infectious reggaeton track produced by Edgar Barrera and Romans finds the pair realizing that their relationship is more toxic than anything else. And although they’re working on fixing it, “it’s impossible to change you, I don’t expect you to do it for me and I’m not one to judge” they confess. “[NattiVidad] is a real perreo album,” Natasha previously told Billboard. The 17-track set features other collabs with artists such as Farina, Cazzu, Nio García and Brray. — G.F.
Alejandra Guzmán, “Quiero Más De Ti” (La Reina Del Rock Records)
After experimenting with more pop-leaning sounds, Mexican rocker Alejandra Guzmán returns to her roots with the forceful rock ‘n’ roll track “Quiero Más De Ti (I Want More From You).” Guzmán is direct and raw with the lyrics penned by the artist herself along with producer-songwriter Tim Mitchell. “This is a good return to rock ‘n’ roll, I like that I’m going back to my sound and my genre,” the chart-topping singer-songwriter said in a statement. — G.F.
