Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard’s new series that showcases artists’ very own throwback-themed playlists exclusive to Billboard‘s Spotify account. The curated set features the artists’ favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week’s spin comes from Joey Montana. The Panamanian reggaeton star is gearing up for the release of his latest single “Viral Pisadinha,” featuring Felipe Araujo — out wide Friday (Dec. 21) through Universal Music Latin Entertainment.
The release — which serves as an ode to the dance craze of the same name currently sweeping Brazil — caps a busy year for the singer, which included a collaboration with Sebastian Yatra (“Suena El Dembow“), and Charly Black and Lola Indigo (“Ya No Quiero Na (RMX)“), as well as original singles like “Rosas O Espinas,” “La Movida,” and “Corazon De Metal.”
To fete the new release and the end of the year, Montana today looks back to the music of his youth with this week’s throwback playlist, featuring MC Hammer, Ruben Blades, Akon and more.
Give the set a spin and also check out some retro snaps of the star below.
