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’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.

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.”

JUANES – Un Dia Normal

Celebrating a milestone anniversary for one of Latin Music’s seminal and uplifting albums this century, Universal Music Latino has announced two special 20-year anniversary editions of JUANES’ record-setting and global breakthrough album, Un Dia Normal. A digital-only 20-year Anniversary edition (remastered in HighResAudio and Dolby Atmos) is now available at all major Digital Music providers, while a limited vinyl, CD and cassette special edition (providing fans with a combination of demo recordings & Juanes‘ personal commentary) can now be pre-ordered HERE. Here’s what people had to say. 

“Twenty years ago, Juanes released his breakthrough album…  with its mix of catchy pop, cutting rock, and traditional Latin sounds, Un Día Normal took him to an entirely new level. It spent 92 weeks on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, setting a record at the time, and it spun off gigantic back-to-back hits such as ‘A Dios Le Pido,’ ‘Mala Gente,’ and ‘Es Por Ti,’ all songs that helped define pop-rock in Spanish for that era. The album won six Latin Grammy [awards], including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year—and it made Juanes a star. …he remembers putting together the album during a hectic, emotional time, filled with highs and lows that inspired the sound of the record. He talks about the changes he was going through at the time, how he drew from his past, and how Un Día Normal changed the game,” said Rolling Stone. 

“One of Latin Music’s greatest… and most essential albums…  Juanes‘ contagious beats and socially conscious lyrics were a huge success… single ‘A Dios le Pido’ became a Latin anthem… and  ‘Un Dia Normal’ conquered the Billboard Latin Albums chart for two straight years, remaining in the top 10 for 92 weeks and won [six] Latin Grammy awards. …it perfectly captured the mainstream possibilities of singing in Spanish,” said Billboard.

Juanes on the Album

“I was passing through a very dark moment and a very light moment, and I think Un Día Normal really showed that in the music. Songs like ‘A Dios le Pido’ and ‘Es Por Ti’ were inspired by my family, my hope for better days, and also my wife, actually. I was completely in love and I thought at [the] time that my life was really changing in a very positive way. Un Día Normal reflected all of that. At the beginning of my musical journey, I started with folk music from all of South America. It was very normal [for] me to listen to tango and bolero, rancheras, vallenatos, cumbias. Then, when I became a teenager, I became crazy over rock music. I was an extremely big fan of heavy metal and Metallica. And then at some point around my twenties, I just realized that I needed to go back to my roots and I wanted to bring some elements of all of that to my music.”

Multiplica Mixtape

Warner Music Latina presents the future of urbano music with the unequaled release of “Multiplica Mixtape”. This trendsetting work is a concept of family, sisterhood/brotherhood, unity, and prosperity with a common goal of supporting one another as a community of trap artists from all over the world. “Multiplica Mixtape” is a body of work created by 12 artists and 7 producers who share a common goal of redefining and reinventing Latin trap. “Multiplica Mixtape” is now available on all streaming platforms.

“Multiplica Mixtape” Tracklist

  1. On The Road Ft. Kidd Keo, Yung Sarria, Elpatron970, and Felp 22 (Produced by Emy Luziano)
  2. La Familia Ft. Felp 22, Puri, Mathew, Fufu, Jay Oc, Jey Blessing, and Lennis Rodríguez (Produced by Puri)
  3. No Los Veo Ft. Mathew, Jay Oc, and Jey Blessing (Produced by Jay Music)
  4. Butti Ft. Gatillero 23 and Elpatron970 (Produced by Rb One)
  5. Vicio Ft. Yung Sarria and Jey Blessing (Produced by Emy Luziano)
  6. Asesino Ft. Elpatron970, Felp 22, and Puri (Produced by Puri)
  7. Mujeres Y Petas Ft. Kidd Keo and Elpatron970 (Produced by KZO)
  8. Bexxakeo Ft. Jey Blessing and Maki Vaez (Produced by Maki Vaez)
  9. Weed Ft. Felp 22, Lennis Rodriguez, Jay Oc, and Mathew (Produced by Jay Music)
  10. Racha Ft. Espano and Rokero (Produced by Straynane)


With 10 tracks, “Multiplica Mixtape” is a multifaceted and multidimensional music project that brings together 19 artists from 8 different countries including Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Spain and Venezuela. Primarily focusing on Trap and Drill, this mixtape incorporates several genres and has a distinct musical and visual tone. The album showcases the talent and great hits that came out of the Multiplica collective.

Numbers like “La Familia,” featuring Lennis Rodríguez, Jey Blessing, Jay Oc, Fufu, Mathew, Puri, Felp 22 give the mixtape a sense of cohesion, and as the song title states, it’s a family affair. On “Mujeres y Petas,” Kidd Keo and Elpatron970 effortlessly spit urgent bars over a blown out drill beats. On Jey Blessing y Maki Vaez’s “BEXXAKEO,” the oft-imitated sounds of reggaeton take a singular approach – separating them from the countless and seemingly endless stream of watered-down reggaeton offerings occupying the modern pop landscape.

“Mujeres y Petas” by Kidd Keo and Elpatron970 is song #7 on the Mixtape, and it is one of the most outstanding collaborations of the album. This song features Keo doing what Keo does best. Sometimes it seems that with every word he is cutting off your arms or legs, making every note feel almost effortless, as if one were floating. And Elpatron970 works as a kind of backbone necessary for the song to have a healthy life. It is the foundation of the house. The sofa that makes your living room look like a home and not an office.

The concept behind this unique mixtape explores many themes central to the human experience. “Multiplica Mixtape” encompasses family, brotherhood, unity, and prosperity. The project was born out of a Warner Music Latina musical retreat conducted in the Dominican Republic in June 2021. As Latin music is now popular in the U.S. and enjoys domestic and international mainstream attention, “Multiplica Mixtape” is embracing this momentum and paving the way for other collaborative projects of its kind.

An indisputable icon, he remains one of the most influential artists of all time, bringing reggaeton worldwide for the first time.

Since 1995, he has consistently conquered charts, toppled records, and made history on his own terms. The magnitude of his accolades proves nearly impossible to match or exceed. Living up to the title of “King of Reggaeton, he has moved north of 30 million records as “one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all-time.” Out of hundreds of awards, he has scored five Latin GRAMMY® Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, 14 Billboard Latin Music Awards, two Latin American Music Awards (including the Icon Award), eight Lo Nuestro Awards, an MTV VMA, and six ASCAP Awards in addition to earning a spot on the Puerto Rican Walk of Fame and the “Presencia Latina” at Harvard University. He also stands out as “the only Latin Artist with four Spanish-language entries on the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. He received “Songwriter of the Year” three times at the 2021 ASCAP Latin Music Awards and distinguished himself as “the first urban Latino artist to enter the Billboard Hall of Fame.

Most importantly, he runs and leads his charity “Daddy’s House,” which Billboard commended with the Spirit of Hope Award.

After changing the face of Latin music forever, he leaves on the highest note possible in 2022 with his twelfth full-length offering and final album, LEGENDADDY, brought to life with his farewell tour, LA ÚLTIMA VUELTA (The Last Round). The album combines the essence of Reggaeton with salsa, dancehall, rap, trap bachata, EDM, and Caribbean music like never before.
