Light up your playlists with Latino Pop artist YXani’s latest single, Son Igual.

Since his 2019 debut, the Latino pop artist YXani has garnered plenty of hype with his intrinsically evocative signature style. His latest release, Son Igual, is a downtempo RnB ballad that lets sun-kissed tones bleed into the mix as a contrast to the melancholic undercurrent that flows right through this modernist contribution to the airwaves.

Unilingual English minds may not be able to easily abstract the meaning from the Spanish lyrics, but that does little to harken the emotional intensity of the stylish and soulful release.

YXani’s latest single, Son Igual, is now available to stream on Spotify.

Nathasha Rumbos – Echate Pa Ya: Exotically Riff-Driven Pop

https://open.spotify.com/album/2WuQ9zVYBKaloFjqh8DhaP

I don’t know what I was expecting when I hit play on Venezuelan singer-songwriter Nathasha Rumbos’ seminal Latino Pop single “Echate Pa Ya” but my mind was unequivocally blown within the first 10 seconds.

The viscerally anthemic infusion of Latino Pop and extremely nuanced Rock was like nothing I’ve ever heard before. You’d probably be hard-pressed to find more impressive guitar solos in any Rock song, but with Echate Pa Ya you’ve also got the rhythmically danceable beats which are transfixing beyond definition.

The cherry on the aural cake are the insanely cutting lyrics “Your name is not on his phone, you’re just an unknown number”. How could we not be excited about Natasha Rumbos’ trailblazing career after hearing Echate Pa Ya?

Soak Up the Exotic Melodies in NEZZA’s Latino Pop single “Corazón Frío”

Independent Latino Pop artist NEZZA dropped her sublimely exotic single “Corazón Frío” in February 2020; you’d struggle to find a 2020 release with the same warming vibrant melodic appeal.

The lyrics may be Spanish, but the soul poured into the track is universally resonant. The same can also be said for the rhythmically smooth, organically absorbing rhythms.

Latino music often comes with uniquely intricate rhythmic melodies, yet Corazón Frío pops with even more effervescent colour than you’re accustomed to thanks to the masterful production on the single. And it goes without saying that NEZZA’s vocals are the cherry on the cake of this sun-soaked earworm.

It’s a flawless release which any Latino Pop fan will want on their playlists.

You can check out the official video to Corazón Frío which premiered on February 19th for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Karrington – When in Barcelona: An Exotic Twist on 90s RnB Pop

Up and coming Pop artist Karrington has recently released her first 2020 single “When in Barcelona” which puts a fresh new Latina twist on 90s RnB-inspired Pop.

The stunning feat of aural escapism offers effervescent warmth through the exotic rhythms and Karrington’s dynamically arrestive bi-lingual vocals. With the Latina rhythms weaving into sun-soaked intricate melodies, you’ll be captivated by the time the prelude has run through.

It’s the ultimate winter warmer. More importantly, Karrington’s fourth single stands as a testament to how much her sound has matured since she made her debut in 2019 with the single “Stuck on You”.

Even though the wanderlust lyrical content is left fairly light When in Barcelona resonates as though it came straight from the soul.

Hayden Brenen x L.D.N – Mi Cariño: Exotically Fresh Urban Alt Pop

For their latest release, London-based Pop artist Hayden Brenen teamed up with L.D.N to create their fieriest drop to date “Mi Cariño” which is sweet enough to simultaneously appeal to Pop, Latino, Rap, and Hip Hop fans alike.

With the smooth harmonic Latino Pop vocals mixed with L.D.N’s grimy yet charismatic Rap bars, there was an insane amount of sun-kissed chemistry in the mix – and that’s even before you consider the vibrantly rhythmic beats.

The exotically danceable single is a celebration of aural multiculturism. Neither genre or geography could constrain the euphoric energy in Mi Cariño. Perceptibly, it was a track born from pure creative expression.

Christine – Cast Away: Evocatively Captivating Latino Pop

“Castaway” is the latest single to be released by up and coming Latino Pop artist Christine. There may be a sweet sentimentality to the track. But, there’s also plenty of evocative, and uplifting energy.

With sharp hooks to lead you into a euphoric EDM Pop chorus from atmospheric verses, Castaway is a track which offers everything you could possibly ask for. Christine’s effortlessly harmonic vocals are captivating from the first verse to the last. And the effort to make Castaway far from archetypal is just as perceptible as her nuanced vocal talent. There’s a slight 90s pop influence, but Christine is an artist in the habit of setting herself apart with plenty of distinction.

You can check out the official music video to Christine’s latest single via YouTube.
