Viva Friday is a compilation of the best new songs, albums, and videos recommended by Billboard Latin editors.
This week, the playlist features a variety of fresh urban songs and some romantic ballads. There’s also a new Christmas song in the mix kicking off the holiday spirit.
Wisin & Yandel ft. Ozuna – “Callao”
Keeping the secret under their sleeves, Wisin, Yandel, and Ozuna have surprised fans with a major collaboration called “Callao.” The melody gives us major old-school reggaeton vibes, taking us back to the early sounds of El Duo de la Historia in the late ‘90s, early ‘00s. Meanwhile, Ozuna couldn’t have said it any better: “esto es perreo del duro.”
Alejandra Guzman – “Así Es La Navidad”
Alejandra Guzman holds on to her pop-rock roots to give life to “Asi es la Navidad.” Her new heartfelt single kicks off the holiday season, narrating a nostalgic personal story of love, forgiveness and unity. As a gift to her fans, this is Guzman’s first Christmas single, which is already available on all digital platforms.
Feid – “Sigueme”
Filmed in the hood where he was raised in Colombia, Feid presents his vibrant music video and single, “Sigueme.” In his new production, the Colombian singer and composer is flaunting his romantic and sensual side, fusing slow dancehall melodies with a fiery urban beat. According to Feid, his new song is all “real talk” when it comes to flirting with the girl of his dreams.
Laura Pausini, Carlos Rivera – “La Solución”
In a world that’s dominated by urban music, come Laura Pausini and Carlos Rivera to restore your faith in love. The two powerhouses have joined forces to deliver “La Solución,” a love song that talks about the solution to a broken heart. Listen to the romantic ballad below.
PJ Sin Suela – “Vivieron Feliz”
PJ Sin Suela has blessed 2018 with fresh music with conscience. Always doing things with a purpose, the Puerto Rican doctor-turned-singer dropped “Vivieron Feliz,” a song that talks about the power of love and hope. To get his message across, PJ invited a group of blind and deaf people to bring the video to life. In the empowering video, we see deaf people dancing to the vibrations of the song, the blind describing the images they see when they hear the song, and two young folks interpreting the song in sign language.
Silvestre Dangond ft. Robinson Damian, Los Gigantes – El Santo Cachon
Just in time for your holiday party, Silvestre Dangond has dropped his own version of the classic “El Santo Cachon.” The original track by Los Embajadores del Vallenato is a timeless piece that was released over 20 years ago. Now, with his special touch, Dangond blessed his fans with his new single not only featuring Los Embajadores’ frontman Robinson Damian but also remaking the vibrant music video.
Gian Marco ft. Debi Nova – “Tu No Te Imaginas”
Peru and Costa Rica have joined forces in Gian Marco’s new single featuring Debi Nova. The two Latin pop artists present “Tu No Te Imaginas,” a sensual bachata version of Gian’s original romantic pop track. Produced by Juan Luis Guerra, the new version is part of Gian’s 15th studio album, Intuicion.
