JUANES: “AMORES PROHIBIDOS”

JUANES Will Release His New Single

“AMORES PROHIBIDOS” On November 10th

Find Pre-Save Link Here:

The First Advance Single From Juanes’ Highly Anticipated 2023 New Album, “AMORES PROHIBIDOS”  Represents The Start Of A New Creative Cycle For The 27 Time GRAMMY & LATIN GRAMMY Winner – Resulting From An Ardent Songwriter Turning Inward During The Pandemic To Reexamine Life, Love, Family and More of His Own Emotional Intricacies

Colombian Rock Superstar JUANES is set to release his new single“AMORES PROHIBIDOS” on November 10th – marking the first listen fans will have into the new musical growth begun by the globally renowned artist following his recent GRAMMY & LATIN GRAMMY winning ORIGEN  album and world tour. Whereas ORIGEN brought Juanes back to re-embrace his earliest and strongest rock music roots through reinterpretations of some of the most influential songs from others that shaped his musical vision, this natural new creative cycle meshes that continued return to electric guitar rock with a deep dive back into his own long-praised songwriting skill that turned inward in focus during the recent pandemic period.

This resulting two years of writing and recording has left both the artist and his close collaborating producer (and fellow multiple Grammy winner) Sebastian Krys filled with excitement about soon sharing this new level creativity as a full album release in early 2023, (marking Juanes’ first all-original album  since 2019’s “Más Futuro Que Pasado”).

“I believe Juanes has reconnected with his fearless innovative songwriting that defined him early on in his career. This song sounds 100% Juanes and is simultaneously unlike anything he has done before.  Juanes has always been an innovator. Writing during the pandemic made him connect with his day to day life. His Children, his wife, his music, his fears, and passions. It is apparent to me that he has tapped into another level of musical exploration and curiosity which only a handful of artists ever achieve” – Sebastian Krys.

Leading up to the November 10th release of “AMORES PROHIBIDOS”(PRE-SAVE NOW)  Juanes has already begun taking fans inside his recent creative process for the new song through a series of brief TikTok videos (idea/lyrics/melody/ riff/beat/keyboards) that have already generated over nine million views and can be seen here.   Watch Juanes’ social accounts in the upcoming days for more sneak peeks into the song and new video. 

(“AMORES PROHIBIDOS  is co-produced by Juanes and Sebastian Krys, asst. producer: Emmanuel Briceño.

co-mixed by Sebastian Krys & Vago Galindo. Upcoming video is directed by Jose Sagaro)

Latin Music 2022 Revenue via 360 MAGAZINE

U.S. Latin Music Growth

RIAA REPORTS DOUBLE DIGIT MID-YEAR GROWTH FOR U.S. LATIN MUSIC

2022 First Half Revenues Up 23% – View Data in English + Spanish

Heating up celebrations during Hispanic Heritage Month, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) today published new revenue data for U.S. Latin music, which outpaced overall U.S. tallies and grew its share to a record high at 6.6% of total revenue.

RIAA Chief Operating Officer Michele Ballantyne expands on the success saying, “Latin music continues to flourish with 23% growth over the first half of 2022, outpacing overall recorded music revenues and reaching an all-time high in share. Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti has been the most listened to album released this year across all genres – that is the power of Latin music to reach and connect with fans universally! The dynamic creative partnerships between Latin artists and their label teams drive incredible results year after year.”

“U.S. Latin revenue rose to more than half a billion dollars during the first half of 2022,” continues RIAA Senior Vice President, Research and Economics, Josh Friedlander. “Once again, streaming remains king in the Latin segment of the U.S. market, driving a remarkable 97% of total revenues. Both of the largest streaming categories – paid subscriptions and on-demand ad-supported streaming – as well as CDs and the rejuvenated vinyl format, grew for Latin music over this period.”

The report highlights ad-supported on-demand streams from services like YouTube, Vevo, and the free version of Spotify, which increased 39% to $112 million. That trajectory builds on last year’s initial recovery from the impact of Covid-19 reflected in 2020’s tallies.

As the newly launched Billboard Español revealed earlier this morning, “2022 already demonstrates how Latin music will be a continuing force to be reckoned with in the United States (and beyond).” 

RIAA Research Manager Matt Bass concludes, “capping off our mid-year reporting, this continued U.S. Latin music growth amplifies the already strong overall results covered in our whole market report issued last month.” Read here.

Across the broader recorded music revenue landscape, 2022 reflects continued growth year over year. These data points paint a clear picture that listeners are invested in music across genre and language.

Que Triste by Warner Music Latina via 360 Magazine

“QUE TRISTE” by PISO 21 & CARÍN LEÓN

Piso 21 releases new single ”QUE TRISTE” with Carín León. The Colombian supergroup gears up to perform at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards on September 29

“QUE TRISTE” Available HERE

One of the Latin music industry’s most prolific and versatile groups, Piso 21, unites with regional Mexican singer and songwriter, Carín León, for the release of their latest song, “Que Triste”. The song and its official music video are available to stream on all digital platforms today.

Intentionally crafted to create the perfect fusion between two very different worlds of music, this newest hit pushes past creative barriers as Piso 21 makes a meticulous decision to produce something that further solidifies their versatility as artists. A play of references, the meaning of “Que Triste” is evident in its ties to its melancholic and wistful melodies over a slower tempo. Molded perfectly to highlight the essence of all of the artists, Piso 21’s dynamic and multifaceted vocals intertwine seamlessly with Carín León’s rhythmic and signature vocalization as they weave a story of the sadness that comes with not being valued by their female protagonists as she walks out of their lives.

In the video, directed by Juan Felipe Zuleta, we find ourselves on an intimate journey as the main protagonist, Manu Fajardo, embodies the raw and heartfelt emotions brought forth by “Que Triste” through an emotional and isolated performance. The video sees Piso 21 and Carín León perform their verses throughout a series of snippets, effortlessly capturing the essence and story behind the song.

The debut of “Que Triste” comes at an exciting time for Piso 21 as they get ready to take the stage at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards. The supergroup was also nominated at this year’s Latin Billboard Awards under the “Latin Rhythm Artist of the Year, Duo or Group” category. The ceremony will be broadcast live from the Watsco Center in Miami, FL on Thursday, September 29 at 7pm EST on Telemundo.

“Que Triste” follows in the footsteps of their current hit, “Los Cachos,” alongside Manuel Turizo. “Los Cachos” sees Piso 21 and Turizo join forces again for the first time since their 2018 classic, “Dejala Que Vuelva,” which remains a career-defining hit single for both artists. To date, “Los Cachos” has garnered over 60 million combined streams and over 24 million views on YouTube.

Piso 21 has continuously delivered hit after hit this year – after the release of their multi-platinum 2021 album, El Amor En Los Tiempos Del Perreo, they have released a steady stream of singles and features with Blessd, Ovy On The Drums, Santa Fe Klan, Dimelo Flow, Boza, Mau y Ricky, Prince Royce, Gerardo Ortiz, Khea, amongst others. Currently, Piso 21 is on the road touring internationally through LATAM and beyond as they gear up for the highly anticipated release of their album, “777.”

Rosalía illustration by wanny ng for 360 magazine

TRIUMPH OF ROSALIA IN MADRID

Rosalía surrenders and triumphs with the M of Madrid and Motomami in her two shows full of hits.

The Catalan singer offered two wild and innovative pop shows at the WiZink Center before an ecstatic audience. We couldn’t wait to hear Rosalía sing in concert. And finally, this Tuesday, July 19, and Wednesday, July 20, we saw the creator of Motomami gather her fans in Madrid.

On Tuesday, she appeared in a total red look with an unstructured board skirt, bullfighter leather jacket, bodysuit, extra-long braids, and high boots. The Spanish singer appeared under her iconic helmet. On Wednesday, she acted with the same look but in a different color by using black and nude yellow for the second time.

Just a few minutes after 9:30 p.m., the first reflections of the helmets of the Motomami universe appeared behind the stage. It sounded like “Chica, que dices?!” with the motorcycles roaring. The singer began the show with Saoko‘s unbeatable song, which is a shot of energy to start both concerts on top.

She continued to sing hits, one after another. CandyLa Fama, and Bizcochito were played in the first part of the two concerts, some of the greatest hits of her latest work.

With all the eclecticism, all the avant-garde, and all the groundbreaking elements of her disco, she knew how to transfer to the stage without great artifice, thus creating a historical show. Not only did we get a chance to listen to this new kind of music style, but we also got to feel the organic vein of hers settling into her setlist. Thus, we heard how Dolerme interpreted with no more elements than his voice and guitar. 

In the way that her most recent album is a tribute to all the music that the artist likes, Rosalía scored a fun medley with mythical Latin songs: Gasolina by Daddy Yankee and Papi Chulo by Lorna. She also included them in her two performances, the Blinding Lights remix with her friend The Weeknd.

As we have already been observing in other tour’s concerts, the composer wanted to premiere new songs live: Despechá, Libertad, Dinero, or Aislamiento.

Motomami is an album that mixes flamenco, reggaeton, bolero, some jazz, and rap, perfect for you to listen to live.

Jossef

Listen to Jossef’s full chat with the 360 Magazine Latinx Editor-at-Large Javier Pedroza on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

21-year-old singer/songwriter Jossef has swiftly taken the music industry by storm. Originally from Puerto Rico, as he defines, “it is the place where champions are born, we have a lot of potential.”

Jossef began releasing his own original music at the age of 17, debuting his track “Zumba.” Specializing in the Latin urban genre, Jossef pours his unique flare and attitude into his work. Having a large presence online with over 180K followers on Instagram and 340K on YouTube, Jossef’s tracks typically reach viral status, allowing him to reach a diverse audience. He now belongs to the new wave of artists who have surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify.

“I feel very content and happy for the artistic career I am leading. I admit that I am in [my] best artistic moment, and epic things are coming this year. Music for me is number one, without it there is nothing,” Jossef said while chatting about his career.

Jossef’s prominent social media presence has allowed him to dabble in differing industries. Using fashion as another creative outlet, Jossef speaks to how his style allows him to display more of his individuality to his audience. “Regarding fashion, I am designing a collection of unique, different, and epic pieces. I always try to separate myself from the rest and be innovative and create different things. I like to push everything to the limit and clothes are no exception.”

Though the artist has such a prominent social media presence, his music has cemented himself as an artist on the rise. In 2020, Jossef landed himself a spot amongst Billboard’s “Latin Teen artist to Keep on Your Radar.” He, too, had the opportunity to represent Puerto Rico in the Renown Music industry: MIEDEMA’S Accelerator Program. (CANNES)

Jossef’s hit “Persia (Remix)” featuring Jamby El Favo and EIX, has collected a whopping 300 million global streams. The track continues to renew Jossef’s viral status online, used as a popular sound on TikTok. Aside from the tracks prominent online presence, “Persia (Remix)” too, entered Spotify’s Top Editorial Playlists of “Viva Latino” and “Baila Reggaeton,” Billboard Argentina’s Hot 100 list, and became Gold certified in Spain and the United States.

Some of Jossef’s other admired pieces include “X2,” DESVELO,” “HASTA QUE ME PERDONES,” “X2 REMIX” featuring Mariah Angeliq and “Algoritmo” with Totoy El Frio, totaling over 15 million streams in all. Regarding his latest release in new track “Que Raro,” Jossef was excited to consider how the track is unique from his other music.  He states, “’Que Raro,’ is a different topic. I like to create and invent things within the musical style of reggaeton. This single has an essence of reggaeton 2004-2005 with a fresh mix of reggaeton from 2022.”
