Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Jan. 29) on Billboard, choosing the pair’s sultry reggaeton song as their favorite new music release of the past week.
“Baila Conmigo” brought in nearly 78% of the vote, beating out new music by Weezer (OK Human), Maluma (#7DJ), Eric Church (“Heart on Fire”), Lil Durk featuring Lil Baby (“Finesse Out the Gang Way”), and others.
The Tainy-produced track, which translates to “Dance With Me,” arrived two weeks after “De Una Vez,” a rhythmic pop song about healing and self-worth. It marked the singer’s first Spanish single in more than a decade.
Both songs will appear on Gomez’s all-Spanish EP, Revelación, which is scheduled for release on March 12.
Placing second on the past week’s tally with 9% of the vote was the “other” category, followed by Weezer’s latest album, OK Human, in third with almost 5% of the vote.
“OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a thing of the past,” the rock band tweeted in mid-January when announcing its 14th album. “All we could do is look back on ancient times when humans really mattered and when the dark tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist.”
The thread continued, “We used our instruments to connect to the 1960’s and 1970’s and, with the orchestra, back to the 18th and 19th centuries. We had no click track or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electric guitar.”
